Salem Golf Club in North Salem, N.Y., is celebrating its 50th anniversary by embarking on an expansion plan of amenities that will include the construction of a pool and a new building that will house locker rooms, a fitness center, spa, private studio for Pilates and yoga, as well as a dedicated children’s activity room. Work is expected to commence later this summer and be completed by spring 2017.
The stone 110-year-old mansion was remodeled and extended to serve as the main clubhouse for member dining, entertainment, outings, catered parties, and other special events. The course, which opened for play in 1966, was designed by Edward Ryder.
Salem Golf Club has experienced growth over the past few years as club management invested in an aggressive renovation campaign to enhance the course and upgrade areas such as tees and greens. The bunkers on all 18 holes underwent a significant facelift, drainage issues were addressed, new cart paths were installed and the practice facilities expanded. The par-3 10th tee will be relocated this fall.
On June 28, Salem Golf Club will host the 40th MGA/MetLife Men’s Four-Ball Championship. Celebrations will be marked by a members’ party on July 3 with special events throughout the afternoon and culminating with fireworks at dusk.
Salem Golf Club features banquet, corporate, and special event space, offering cuisine and its large dining room seats 230 guests. There are several fieldstone verandas for outdoor receptions or ceremonies, and a columned front porch overlooking Peach Lake. Salem Golf Club is a private non-equity club.
