Hidden Gem, Apr 09, 2004
from Cross River, NY
|Salem is located in horse farm country in Northern Westchester. Very few houses are scene from the course. You really feel like you're in the middle of nowhere with beautiful views on almost every hole. Now for the course. Ed Ryder, who designed Richter Park and Redding Country Club, has a somewhat distinct style. He patterns some holes after the great Scottish courses and throws in a redan and punch bowl green. One hole, #13, is one of the hardest holes I've ever played. Water is on the right and a lateral hazard is down the left. If you are lucky enough to land it in the fairway, you're faced with anywhere from a 100 to 200 yard approach shot to a severely raised green which slopes severely from back to front. If that isn't enough two bunkers in front are there to capture anything short of the green. A par is a great score on this hole. A word of advice on this course. Always keep the ball below the hole; otherwise, you'll suffer quite a number of three putts. Ryder also does a great job of mixing up the holes with long and short par 3s, 4s and par 5s and dogleg rights and lefts. The greens are very fast. Course condition is mixed with the most severe problem being drainage during wet weather. Holes 5, 6 and 7 are built in wetlands as are holes 14, 15 and 16. This course is a hidden gem and definitely worth playing. It's also somewhat affordable for a Westchester private course with the initiation fee being about $12,000 and annual dues about $6,000.|
