Salem Municipal Golf Course was built in 1919 on a 46 acre tract of land just a few blocks from the center of the city. The picturesque par 34, nine-hole, 2400 yard course is the perfect place for new golfers of any age to learn the game in a relaxing atmosphere. Hole yardage ranges from a 118 yard par 3 to a 307 yard par 4, with seven of the nine holes playing well over 240 yards. The unique sanded clay "greens" hearken back to the greens of the renown Pinehurst resort back in the 1930s. The flat, Durasoil surface is great for beginning putters while also challenging the seasoned player's short pitching game. The course is open year round and is extremely affordable for all day play.

  PreacherEric - 5/3/11
Great wide open beginners course. 9 holes b/t 118 and 307 yards, most over 240. Cheap, no fairway. "Sand" greens, hard clay, flat, and fast. Great place to let kid hit and learn with little frustration.
