The Art Center

Hey, look us over.....the painting goes on.  The Moore County Art Association’s home adjoining Window on the Plains Museum is a great place to visit.  You can even join an open-painting program.  Or, take part in a class for nominal tuition, taught by artists with established reputations.  Or, enroll your children in classes just for young people.  Special features are a member’s show and sale during the Christmas season.   Special guest artists are featured each month throughout the year with one-man exhibits.  To add to the attraction of the many and varied programs, the association has a permanent collection of 100, or more, art pieces that are hung every summer for area residents and tourists.  The art works have been donated or acquired by purchase.  Stop by to see us!  The Art Center is located at 1810 S. Dumas Avenue in Dumas, Texas.  Hours for the Art Center are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday.  You can contact The Art Center at 806-935-4447.  We are on the web at www.dumasmuseumandartcenter.org .

Pheasant Trails Golf Course

A real treat for traveling golfers.  Golf Digest has rated this three stars Golf Course as one of the best values in North Texas.  Located North of Dumas just off FM 119 to Sunray (see sign on Hwy 287 North) this 18 hole Championship Course is one of the few in the area with watered fairways.  Par is 71, but difficult to obtain on this great lay-out.  The course features bent-grass greens, with sand, water and trees to add true value in recreation.  The 4 hours of enjoyment here is well worth the stop!  Electric & pull carts are available. 

Pro-Shop and restaurant are located at the course.  For more information call 806-935-7375.

Cactus Playa Lake

A real treat for the nature tourism fan.  A playa lake NE of Dumas, just off Hwy 287 N., is under development where you can observe hundreds of species of birds in migration.  The fertile grain fields and our playa lakes attract these birds to our area on their migration patterns. Contact the Chamber for directions.
