Salem Golf Club commenced construction of a new pool and pool house this month, continuing a long tradition of upgrades for the non-equity club in northern Westchester. The new building will house men’s and women’s locker rooms, a teaching and golf simulator room, as well as a dedicated children’s activity room.

A halfway house, outdoor bar and patio for member dining also are planned. The new facilities are expected to open late spring 2017. A new fitness center with a private studio for Pilates and yoga will be located in the main clubhouse.
The tee for the par-3 10th hole is being relocated to accommodate the new amenities, but the green will remain, a change that should increase the challenge of the hole.
Salem Golf Club is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. In the past few years, club management has invested in an aggressive renovation campaign to enhance the course and upgrade tees and greens. Recently, bunkers on all 18 holes underwent a significant facelift, new cart paths were installed, and the practice facilities were expanded.
