The Community Golf Center facility offers two regulation length golf courses, the Dales Course and the Hills Course. The Hills Course is the longer and slightly more difficult of the two. Due to its location nestled in the rolling hills south of Dayton, the terrain is quite hilly and at some times very difficult to walk. Designed in the 1920s, the course has an older layout but it is still an interesting and challenging game with tricky tees placed above the greens and water hazards that come into play on a few holes. The golf course's fairways are rather narrow and there is an abundance of stately trees, planted at the turn of the century.

Course was in decent shape...greens we're good.. you may get lost getting around the course, no markings or signs for directions. There are 2 courses wound around each other that will have you doing circles. Come on man !!! Maybe mark the cart paths ? As always a great day.

Played Hills course in less than 4 hours. Good pace. Greens seemed very deceptive today, fairways were a little patchy but rolling. Tee boxes could have used some work. It seems no one repairs ball marks or divots anymore. There was work being done on the course this day, I believe they got new cart paths.

Had a good time.

For a city course which is used a lot, I get it, the course gets beat up. But the greens and tee boxes, the condition is inexcusable greens had places on them that were dead, tee boxes that look like they have not been attended to in a while, weeds, other grass growing, etc. In general, the tee boxes on the whole course was an eyesore. For the price, you charge way too much, not putting bad into course. Would not recommend this course, can go a lot more places for that rate and play on a better course. Sorry, but I won't go again.

I have played here 100s of time over the past 30 years and always enjoy it. We always walk and the Hills course which is hilly. The fair ways were in good shape and the greens were in great shape for a public course. The price is right, the staff is friendly, and you get a great work out if you walk..

This is a very old public course. Layout is simple on inner Dales course. A little more challenging on outer hills course. Course needs some work. Lots of trash in the surrounding woods etc.
