Salem Country Club is home to one of the top-rated and finest championship golf courses in Massachusetts. The excellent tree-lined parkland layout contains a wealth of wonderfully crafted, memorable and challenging holes. Definitely a course that will challenge your all-round game.

Salem is a private club. Guests may only play if hosted by a member.
Non-metal spike facility. Walking permitted.
Excellent (including a double-ended driving range).
Salem CC has hosted many top level tournaments and national championships, including US Women's Opens, a US Women's Amateur Championship and US Senior Open (see our Tournaments section >by Venue >Salem CC).
