Great 2nd Nine!!
Today I struggled on my first go-round and my score showed it. However, even though it was very windy and gusting at times, I turn it around on the 2nd nine. Everything clicked and I wound up with the best back nine, I’ve ever played!! It was so good it dragged down my lousy score and I ended up with my best 18 hole round at Salmon Falls!
Now , I have a big challenge ahead of me every time I play going forward!! I accept the challenge!
Greens are in great shape. Fairways are good. Tees are fair. Pace of play excellent. Affordable/ Good value...
Greens are Amazing
Interesting layout, but what stands out is the excellent condition of the greens. Just amazing. Fairways are average and tees are a bit suspect, but the greens make up for other deficiencies.
Course was closed
We paid our fee two days in advance. Drove 40 minutes to the course, arrived at the course 30 minutes early to finding no one there, waited until our tee time, still no staff. After an hour and fifteen minutes of waiting a grounds keeper told us the course was closed. Never got to play, had to pay again to play somewhere else. Hopefully I can get a refund.
Course Good Shape - No Cart
This is my "go to" course in central Maine. Was not on GolfNow last year, so I was happy to see it was this year.Greens were exceptional - slow but very puttable. Fairways and tee boxes average. Only problem was:the Hot Deal price did not include a cart as it does on every other course I've ever played on a Hot Deal. Green fees for 18 holes, but $25 extra for a cart. No thanks, so I walked just 9 because it was so hot. And had fun. GolfNow needs to put on Salmon Falls page that the cart is not included.
First Time Very Pleased
Played Salmon Falls for first time yesterday and was very pleased. Will definitely play course again!! In fact, I have a reservation for next Monday!!
Course is a little out of the way. The drive to the course was nice, a little circuitous, but I found it.
The person in the club house was very accommodating, pleasant and hospitable. She pointed me to the 1st tee and off I went. The fairways were well defined and cut nicely, tee boxes offer 4 locations (I played the red and blue), green were very well maintained and looked fantastic for a 9 hole local public course. Maybe the best green I’ve putted on in a long while. The rough is really rough, but fortunately the fairways are wide and I hit most of them.
It had rained profusely for two days earlier this week so I pushed my reservation back 1 day. Glad I did! The course drained well and the surfaces were quite firm , much to my surprise!! I didn’t experience any really soft or muddy areas. The only things I found issues with were that the cart paths are in need of repair, they were quite bumpy and rutted. As I approached the tee at #7/#16 I had to wait for the mower to get out of my way. He never stopped mowing the fairway I was aiming for. Usually the grounds crews get out of your way, stop mowing and turn off their machines when you are in the area they’re working!
I had a nice first round and look forward to playing again next Monday!
