Pace of play was good for first 4 holes then slowed to snail's pace. A twosome of young guys 2 groups ahead of us ended up making our round last over 5 hours. At one point we could see at least 3 open holes in front of them. Not the first time this has happened here. This course needs a marshall to keep play moving. I'm sure they can afford it since the greens fees keeps going up.

I’ve played at the beach this year numerous times for $50-75 a round and played on awful greens. I got this on a “hot deal” $18 to ride 18. Excellent fairways and greens. Best course in the area this year. Will go back.

My sons actually told me about Salem Glen and I really enjoy playing there. I work a different schedule and Monday is usually the best day for me to play and this course works out perfectly for me and my sons. The staff is awesome and they really feel welcome. I like the fact that you can hit driver and irons off the tees and usually be left with short irons into the greens. The times I’ve played there the greens were in good shape and if you find the pace of the greens you’ll have lots of chances for par and maybe a birdie or 2.

Great course to play. Friendly staff in the pro shop as well as the grill area. Driving range in great condition. Course layout is a fun one. Some challenging holes but nothing extreme. Coming up on hot weather the tee boxes with coolers had nice cold water plus the cafe has ice water waiting for golfers at the turn. A few ponds and creeks to steer clear of but that's part of the challenge. Overall Great price for great play, a course that has moved to my top three.

Salem Glen is one of the top three public courses in the Winston-Salem, NC area. Well maintained, nice golf carts, friendly staff. However, they need to redo the sand traps. They do not drain well and the sand is hard.

We came down for Spring Break from Chicago and looked forward to playing a Nicklaus designed course. We were disappointed as soon as we pulled into the parking lot and saw nothing but brown!

The fairways were in terrible shape. The grass was brown and matted down. We basically played off dirt/mud. The greens were decent, but that doesn't count for much if the rest of the course is in bad shape.

Pace of play was also sloooooow! Over 5 hours for a twosome to get through 18.

We have more green grass in Chicago this time of year!

My wife and I drove 10 hours from Canada for a mini golf trip because the weather forecast for the weekend was fantastic in North Carolina. I check Golfnow for deals and rely heavily on reviews for my choices, so everyone should take the time to review the good, the bad & the ugly. It sure is appreciated.

I enjoyed the round. Fairway grass was still dormant and brown but the green greens made a nice contrast. Fellow golfers ( 2 foursomes) allowed my 2 some to play thru. Classy. Play the course if you are in the area

There are so many courses within a 45 minute drive in the area, but only one that is first-class in every area.

The head pro, Justin Malone, is not your typical pro. He makes eye contact, really cares about you and is very personable.

The entire staff, from Katie, who runs Jack's Grille, to Cory in the shop, are all the best in the industry.

When you play there, make sure you stop at the lake on #15 and read the "Becky Baker Fountain" plaque.

With so many options in our area, we are very fortunate to have Salem Glen, with a course owner (Darren Mangus) who understands the game and what we all need in a golf course and facility.

The course layout is fantastic, with a mix of low lands, high ground, woods, water and sand. The course offers something for all. The staff is amazing and very accomodating. The resturant and grill facilities are top notch. It’s a fantastic value. Perhaps the best part of this one are the friendly members and golfers. Golfing alone? No problem, welcome to the group! I highly reccomend Salem Glen.
