Salem Glen Country Club

  127 Reviews

This was my first time playing Salem Glen country club. I was looking forward to playing this Jack Nicklaus designed course. I had heard good things about the course.

The fairways and rough were in great condition. The fairways were smooth and nicely cut. The course is fun and challenging lots of elevation changes (both uphill and downhill holes). The greens are quite small which puts a premium on accuracy with your irons. The rough is thick and lush so if you are off the fairway, it makes it a challenge to get on the green in regulation.

However, the greens were a big let down for me. I thought the greens were in bad condition. The greens are bent grass and are hence they are soft due to the fact they have to be kept moist and hydrated during the hot summer months.

I was disappointed with how chewed and and blemished the greens. There were blemish marks all over the greens. The greens were shaggy (had not been cut in a couple days) and quite slow. It is obvious that the people that play here on a regular basis don’t fix their ball marks because of the many non-repaired ball marks and marks and blemishes all over the greens.

Other than the poor condition of the greens, it is . a great course with some beautiful designed holes (#11 is beautiful from the tee box). If I am in the area again, I will definitely play again and hope the condition of the greens is much better.

He would play this course again.

The course was in great shape. My only issue was we booked tee time on GOLF NOW and it was a “Hot Deal” which was only $22 per player for 18 holes, we decided to play 9 more holes but they wanted to charge us $20 for a replay of 9 holes. They wouldn’t even discuss the price with me. The guy made comment it was $20 for another 9 or 18. It made no difference how much more we played. We didn’t play any more!!
