Salem Country Club
Designed by famous golf course architect Donald Ross, Salem Country Club is accessible to golfers of all abilities yet challenges even the most accomplished—in fact, the U.S. Senior Open was held here in 2017. The 18 perfectly manicured holes run through a hilly, wooded landscape and offer turns and elevation changes that reward precise play.

Bass Rocks Golf Club
Golfers who venture out at Bass Rocks will encounter a well-maintained links-style course, narrow fairways, and difficult, sloping greens, all with sweeping, scenic views of the ocean. After a round, golfers can enjoy a drink at the newly renovated bar inside the comfortable clubhouse or continue enjoying the views on the spacious deck.
