Located just south of Dayton amongst rolling hills, The Dales Course at the Community Golf Center facility is one of two regulation length courses that the facility offers. The Dales Course is referred to as the inside course, while the other course, the Hills Course, is called the outside course. Although the two courses are similar, the Dales Course is shorter and more suitable for less skilled players, but there are still interesting challenges nevertheless. Due to the bounty of mature trees, the fairways are relatively narrow. The terrain is rolling and water hazards come into play on a few holes.

Great course however it was 80 degrees and there was nobody selling drinks until we came around the back nine! My father is 82 years old. Next time I’ll bring a cooler and if they won’t allow it we’ll go somewhere else!!

A little construction/maintenance on #2 on both courses and a few traps with standing water, but overall the course is in pretty good shape. There's a lot of trees and some tough blind shots to challenge yourself.

Really like this course; it's great for the av-rage golfer: a bit short though there are some challenges especially on the par 3s.

The course was in incredible shape for this late in the year. Leaves coming down everywhere but the curse and rough were clear.

For the money it's a good course. Like all in area fairways losing grass, Having to add new sand to traps. Geese causing problems on some holes. Would play it again.

I understand that it takes a lot of effort to run and maintain a nice golf course. With that being said, $40 to play any of the dayton city courses is just not worth it. Although the course was in good/decent shape, I'm just not willing to spend that kind of money at a course like community, Madden, or kitty hawk. I will go spend 10 more dollars and play heatherwood or pipestone. Played the dales which is a shorter course, mostly driver wedge, or driver 9.
