Great course layout - Disappointing Condition of Greens

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.

Cost

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!!

Thank you for the feedback. We do have a contract with Golfnow that allows them to have a Hot Deal once per day at our golf course. Our Normal rates are $37 M-Th, $40 - Friday's, $48 on weekends. We do offer a rate of $15 for 9 Holes during the week for replay or $20 for $18. On the weekends we only offer a $20 rate for a replay. We hope you come back and join us soon. I would be glad to discuss further if you like.

Greens need fixed

Fairways were perfect and roughs were perfectly cut. It made it a fun and challenging course. However the front nine greens were horrible. And the back nine wasn’t much better. They are so soft if u make the wrong move ur spikes can mess up the green. And it’s very clear that the people that play here don’t know what a divot fixer is. But besides the greens. It’s a great course. Will play again

Chase, thank you for the comments on our golf course. Unfortunately, with the heat this Summer and bentgrass greens this is what we battle. We water our greens on a regular basis to keep them cooler. This yields softer conditions and I do agree we could do a better job of ball marks as we constantly preach this to all customers.

Salem Glen is worth the trip

We had a great round at Salem Glen. While it was very hot, the course is in great shape. The course is a good test of golf. My wife appreciated the reasonable placement of the ladies tees.

Non member playing a nice layout.

The practice putting green was in good condition and the ball rolled great, but the greens are not in as good of condition. There is this tool that is sold at golf shops called a divot repair tool. They should invest in these and teach players how to use them. Other than that the ball rolled pretty true on the greens. We had an 11:10 tee time. There was no starter. Two “members” groups of three I believe got in front of us and they were playing some sort of little tournament. The pro even carted one to the first tee who missed his ride. At no time did anyone ask about tee times. This delayed our start time about 20 minutes. I guess we got the non-member treatment. Yeah, it was hot and a little frustrating , but we did get a $20/player round from GN, so it’s kind of hard to complain. The cart girl did make plenty of rounds if you needed refreshments which was nice. All of the water coolers had ice cold water as well.
