Red Trail Links Avoids Storm

Posted: Updated:
 The worst of last night's storm just missed the town of New Salem sparing the Red Trail Links.

Sitting in the shadow of the New Salem Sue-- sits the serene 9 hole course just east of the hill.
Dale Beckman-- a volunteer who helps maintain the course says it brought heavy rain to the links-- brightening it back up with green grass.
The Course is 86 years old-- and for Beckman-- he feels pretty fortunate the storm missed last night.

"We were pretty lucky last night. The wind and the storm seemed to be just to the north of us. We ended up getting the tail end of the storm and what we got was about 1- to 15 minutes of rain. It does keep the course green and it keeps our watering system shut down. That's nice it saves us money and the course is extremely green because of it. "

Red Trail Links was built back in 1928.
No tee times needed here-- and you're expected to be as honest with your golf game as you are in paying for your round.
It's all on the honor system.
While it may not be the longest course you play-- it's still got plenty of character-- and a few secrets that may help you card a lower round.

"It's just different you start off on a par five then back to back par 3's. Everything breaks away from the cow... It'll look like the putt should go to the left maybe but if you're on the wrong side of the hill it actually goes to the right. "

It's 10 dollars for 9 holes or 15 dollars for 18...
The clubhouse is usually unmanned so you're expected to pay via the honor system out there at Red Trail Links.
