Dallas Golf Club

General Course DescriptionDallas golf

About 14 miles west of Salem, Dallas Golf Club is a 9-hole public executive course that is  very open, rural, and a good place to learn how to play, but has enough shots of interest (9th hole, a 3-par you hit under a tree then over a tree and a pond) to make it fun for any player. With five par 3s and four par 4s, the course is divided into a lower half and an upper half. It’s a fine walk.

Course History

Opened in 1990 as Sandstrip Golf Course for the old logging road that used to bifurcate the property. Previously farmland, building closest to the road was original farmhouse.

Why It Is There

A group of Salem businessmen (including designer Gary Christman) thought a course in the area would be a good idea.

Did You KnowClubhouse

The creek adjacent to the course is Rickreall Creek, which rises in the coast range and empties in the Willamette River. The origin of the name of the creek is one of the most disputed issues pertaining to Oregon geographic names, with multiple theories being advanced. A good summary is in Oregon Geographic Names by Lewis L. McArthur.

Good For Them

Members of the local high school golf teams play for free and can use the range for free provided they help to pick up range balls.  The course hosts lots of charity events including Kirk Hendrickson ALS Memorial Golf Tournament, supporting ALS research, Disabled Veterans Golf Tournament, supporting Northwest Battle Buddies and Lines for Life, and the Titus 3 Golf Tournament, supporting the Titus 3 House that provides a safe and structured residence for women transitioning from prison.

Why Play This Course

A nicely maintained course that is a good place to learn and relax at a very good price.
