Newburg Village Golf was the dream and vision of Melvin "Bob" Streeter. Mr. Streeter designed Newburg Village Golf with the "Regular Guy" in mind. He wanted the course to be fun and a pleasure for everyone, from the die-hard golfer to the novice, from senior golfers to the juniors. No matter the age, gender or skill level of our guests, everyone has a good time.
In 2005, Newburg Village Golf was awarded "Beginner Friendly Certification" by the National Golf Course Owners Association. This certification came to be, in part, because of the adoption of the "Family Course" set-up for our golf course. Please note that we now have only 3 sets of tees. The yellow & green are no longer used but we will show you where to tee off to equal the shown yardage, to accomodate different ages and skill levels of anyone playing the golf course. For instance, a family of four can come out to play a round of golf and each family member is competitive. The eight year old plays form the green tees, the twelve year old plays from the yellow tees, mom plays from the red tees, and dad plays from the gold tees. This concept also holds true for foursomes of various handicap levels. The low handicapper (Under 8) plays from the black tees, the low-medium handicapper (8-16) plays from the gold tees, the high-medium handicapper (17-24) plays from the red tees, and the high handicapper (Over 24) plays from the yellow tees.
Newburg Village Golf , for the purpose of handicapping, was rated by the Chicago District Golf Association, an affiliate of the USGA, and had each hole laser measured for accuracy.
Newburg Village Golf is a 9-hole, regulation sized, golf course located just inside Boone County on Newburg Road. The clubhouse enters off Newburg Road, just 2 miles east of Perryville Road and the Cherry Vale Mall. The closest, busy intersection is the dead end of Shaw Road onto Newburg Road, just south of State Street/Business Route 20.
