Red Trail Links and Club House

Sitting at the base of Salem Sue, the Red Trail Links was built in 1928 and is a 9 hole course.  Some of the early residents of New Salem; namely, Fred Mann, Dr. O. C. Gaebe, George Gaebe, Dr Toepke, George Blank, Phil Blank, and Mr McCormack built and designed the course and were some of the first members.  There were 16 charter members and dues were set at $10.00 with $5.00 annually thereafter.  By the end of 1929, there were 41 members.  Membership dropped during the "Dirty 30's" but began to rise again in the 40's.  The building of the course and maintenance has been a volunteer effort.  For many years the course had sand greens and in 1996-1997 Roger "Gus" Holle designed and orchestrated the building of the grass greens.  It is par 38 and plays to a length of 2955 yards.  A tree project was begun in 1981 with the moving and planting of 81 trees.  Since that time Gus Holle has planted more than 500 trees on the course. 

The first clubhouse was an old schoolhouse moved to the course on hole #6 in 1940.  Another clubhouse was moved in to replace the first one in 1960.  And the latest, present clubhouse was built in 1971.  Gus and Rosalie Holle have a deep passion for the course and have put in hours and hours of care.  Trees, flowers, tee signs, birdhouses, and rock formations adorn the course with some benches and shelters as well.
