Booked the round on GN hot deal for 5/7/17. No mention of greens being punched and top dressed on 5/2 - 5/3/17 and no reduction in green fees. Greens very bumpy due to punched holes and sand. I would not have booked round if I had known. Otherwise, course improvements in other areas are very noticeable. Would wait a few weeks for greens to heal before playing again. GN very accommodating in responding to the error in not posting the aeration alert.

I booked a same day tee time and drove an hour, only to find out there was an error within the system and my reservation was cancelled. The course was very busy, so the 2 guys in the pro shop could have easily said "sorry", but they made the effort to make sure I was able to get out and play. Great customer service!

The course offers a great layout. Very challenging, but fair. Course conditions were great and the greens rolled true.

Overall, this was a 5-star experience. I look forward to playing here again.

I was overall very disappointed with the layout and condition of the course .The greens were small and they only rolled a eight so they were slow.They also consisted of different grasses and ball did not roll very smooth.The course layout was very bland with wide open fairways with a creek that ran in front of some of the greens but really did not come into play.My playing partner called the course a poor man's country club but I wouldn't call it a country club at all.I will not play here again.

Having played almost every course in the area over the past few years, Salem Glen is always a top 3 favorite - and that's out of 50 or so courses in the region that we play.

The facility is top notch, the staff is great, and the grounds crew does a spectacular job with the course. But the layout is the draw. The holes are challenging but fair, and the stadium feel of the course is a super cool addition to most of the holes.

Highly recommended.

When the only issue you have is that you wished the rough was a little less dense, the course is up to par. Great layout, excellent conditions, and a wonderful challenge.

The course is very tough and not very forgiving. If you end up off the the fairway and in the second cut you're in some trouble.

Love the course though and it's a fun challenge.

Greens were aerated within the last two weeks but still ran fast as well other then the occasional bump, but that's to be expected. Will come back and plan in the coming weeks. Stayed and watched the Kentucky derby at the bar. Such a good atmosphere there, nice people didn't have that stuffy country club feel which was nice.

Pace of plan was good considering we as a twosome played behind a twosome and a foursome on the front 9 and then behind the foursome on the back 9. Still finished the round in under 4hrs

Quit after 14. There were 5 groups on this par 5 waiting to play. There were 2 couples holding up the entire golf course and there was no ranger. Had we completed our round, would have taken over 5 hours. Since we had driven over from Greensboro, that's one hour to the course, 5+ hours to play, one hour home. I'm not spending 8 hours to play golf anywhere!

Played on a Wednesday afternoon. Course is in good condition. Greens were on the slow side but expected after the recent snow. Greens rolled quite good and had been taken care of. We played as a twosome and finished in under 3hrs even with cart path only restriction. This course continues to impress with the conditions it has been kept in the past two years.

This is simply a lovely experience all the way around. The topper might be a starter/ranger who was charming and on his rounds took time to stop and briefly chat with us about the pace of play, conditions, and our general feelings about our round or if we needed anything. Excellent.

Greens had been aerified the previous week, nothing on golfnow reporting the aerification. It's a shame that the powers at hand didn't feel it was necessary to log in to their golfnow account and with a couple strokes of the keyboard alert potential customers of the course condition.

I understand that aerifying the greens is a necessary evil, but the bigger evil is letting someone show up to your course after reading wonderful reviews and finding a course that isn't up to par.

Now for the course itself, interesting layout with lots of water. Good mix between difficult holes and easy holes. Everything very green. Would have rated everything 5 out of 5 if not for greens.

First time playing here. Was worried about course conditions due to all the winter kill in the area. No need to worry though, the course was in great shape! My friend and I play a variety of courses throughout the state, and the only course that we've played recently that was in better condition, was Pinehurst #8. We will definitely play here again! Did not get food or beverage, so I can't comment on them. Good deals in the pro shop too. My friend got a logo shirt for $19.
