A 9-hole golf course with a clubhouse.


HISTORY

On July 4, 1965, the Dixie Red Hills Golf Course was the first golf course to open up in the county. It started with 7 holes,
but two more were added a few months later.

A new clubhouse was built in late 2018 and early 2019, after which the old clubhouse was demolished. The new clubhouse
was much larger, with new restaurant facilities, a lounge area, and extra restroom space.
