Detailed description of Salem Glen Country Club

Salem Glen Country Club is a Semi-Private, 18 hole golf course located along the banks of the Yadkin River in in Clemmons, North Carolina.

Salem Glen Country Club first opened for play in 1997. The course was designed by Nicklaus Design. The 18-hole "Salem Glen" course at the Salem Glen Country Club facility in Clemmons, North Carolina features 7,012 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 71 . The course rating is 74.2 and it has a slope rating of 136. Designed by Nicklaus Design, ASGCA, the Salem Glen golf course opened in 1997.

The layout takes full advantage of the 150 feet of elevation changes, four and a half miles of creeks and nine lakes. With two distinct nines, the course offers fun and excitement for players of all skill levels.

The front nine is a links-style layout. The fairways are open and flat, and there's several water hazards coming into play. Five holes of the front nine are set in the Yadkin River basin. The most dramatic of them is the signature fourth hole, a 566-yard par 5, which calls for an elevated tee shot that must avoid a meandering creek to the left of the fairway and trees to the right.

The back nine holes are mountain-style rife with dramatic elevation changes. Most of the fairways are tree lined. From the tee box, No. 13 is a breathtaking par 4 where your tee shot must carry a 70-foot deep ravine. Fourteen is a par 5 playing back over the ravine to a long, shallow green cut into the hillside. The four closing holes are the toughest on the course, as they should be. No. 17, a par 3 flanked by creeks in front and behind the large green, is a player favorite. The course closes with a par 4 where golfers may bail out right hoping to bounce their ball close to the green or carry the bunkers fronting the sloping green.

With five sets of tees, the track ranges from 4,816 yards from the front tees to a full 6,810 yards from the back tees. Experienced players will continually find risks and rewards, yet the course is designed to have the ultimate playability for those still learning the game. The design assures enjoyable play round after round, while its craftsmanship reveals its intricacies the more you play it.

Gold tees: par-71, 6,810 Yards, 72.4 / 132

Blue tees: par-71, 6,403 Yards, 72.4 / 132

White tees: par-71, 5,948 Yards, 72.4 / 132

Green tees: par-71, 5,414 Yards, 72.4 / 132

Red tees: par-71, 4,816 Yards, 72.4 / 132

Salem Glen has recently (within the last few years) updated the course. It drains well even after recent summer rains. It has some challenging shots and some that you have to calculate your club to score well. It is one of the best courses in the area and worth the trip. I would recommend it to anyone in the area or traveling to the area. Salem Glen often offers discounts on various golf websites to reduce the cost.

Would travel: 20-30 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Ranks with the best in this price level

Jack Nicklaus should take his name off this course. It is not at all like he designed.

Would travel: 0-10 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: Better courses for less nearby, Worse than average course for the area
