I recently moved my daughter to Newton and noticed a nice but abandoned golf course on the West end of town. The land is for sale. I am a golfer (not a very good one though) and it looks like it was a pretty nice course at one time. It makes me sad to see abandoned golf courses (there is another in Western Iowa I drive by too on my way to Atlantic). Anyway, does anyone know the story behind it and if it was a good course? I bet it was affected by Maytag leaving town. Thanks!
