Fastest greens ever!
They were rolling true and they haven’t been aerated yet so it was perfect.
Hazard of a Single Player
Salem Hills is a good course and it was in good condition. Greens were perfect. My issue is how a lone player is treated. I purchased a tee time at 9:28 am for a single player. If that time had not been available I would have gone somewhere else. As the tee time approached the starter left me and talked to three guys queued to go to the tee. Suddenly, another guys walks up and joins them. The starter talks to them for awhile and then comes up to me and says “You’re going to have to go by yourself. They reserved as a threesome but a fourth showed up.” I was not pleased as the course was filled with foursomes. This is the third time this has happened to me and it is an issue that needs to be addressed. I understand that it is easier to tell the single to play alone but it is not really fair. As I said, if I thought I was going to play by myself, I would have gone to a different course. I cannot give a good rating to this course because of this.
I’ve heard for a while that it’s a nice course, but never played it until today. Played the back 9 before a league, so no one was in front of me. Fun layout and beautiful scenery, big and tough greens. It’s the type of course that I’d like to play over and over for years to come.
Fair course for women
This is the second time this summer that I have played here. It's a fair course for women. There aren't really any tricked up holes, which is nice. The ladies' tee boxes could be more level, though.
Pace of play
Wasnt too thrilled with some guy with his wife and kid being very rude calling the clubhouse cause my group was apparently going slow even though we weren’t, he was going fast and very impatient which in turn made me feep rushed and threw off my rhythm, may not come back because of that, didnt spend 40 bucks to get treated like crap all he had to do was talk to us but nope had to act like a baby calling on us
Fun course, pace of play has been rough all summer.
Stacking the tee times a little to close together given skill of average golfer visiting this course. Pace of play ok most of the time, but a few times I have played two holes on the front 9 only to end up behind 3 groups waiting to tee off on #3. Starter and Rangers need to better manage the tee times going off so it does not get all jammed up sometimes.
Staff was great. Had a little over an hour rain and lightning delay. They kept us informed and offered rain checks to those who wanted them. Got us back out on the course in an organized fashion and the course held up well after the rain.
Would play again.
Nice course with some pars available to us below average golfers.
Course was very clean and well kept. Fairways and greens in great condition. Will play again.
Salem Hills, front 9 then back 9
Excellent pace of play, our foursome kept up with the twosome in front of us, teed of at 1240p, finished by 420p.
Course had some dry parts where the ball rolled and rolled, but the greens were green, soft and true.
This is a very nice course.
Salem Hills is a nice layout with well maintained tee boxes, fairways and greens. There is some room for missing fairways on many holes, however, the trees will present a challenge for an easy recovery. The course is in a secluded location so it's quite peaceful. We played on a Sunday afternoon in exactly 4 hours. The staff was friendly and the pro shop is handling the pandemic with sufficient caution.
