Salem Baptist Church
Has tee signs
Natural tees were flat and fair to drive from
Good mix of open/wooded fairways with doglegs, mandos, and elevations
Had whole course to myself on a Saturday evening
Easy to navigate
Free parking at multiple locations
Long walk from hole #9 basket to parking lot
Nasty overgrowth along stream on hole #1 fairway
This is a nice addition to the Henry County area that serves as a good warm-up for nearby JP Moseley Park. This course is pretty impressive for a 9 hole course on church property. Some of the pars may be little on the soft side but should be perfect for the rec player. Nice variation in pars, elevations, fairways, and mandos should make this fun to play. I like shooting around the mando poles on holes 4&5 as that adds some difficulty to the course. I'm not sure about the box truck on hole #7 but it doesn't seem to have moved since the pic was taken years ago. There's a lot of land here to make it 18 holes but it's pretty good as it is for a quick round.

Not your average church/9hole course
Pros: Nice brand new baskets.
Some good length to this course, 400s, 500s, uphills, downhills. A good mix of straight, lefts, and rights playing the OBs around the ball fields. Open in the front leads to some wood holes in the back 4 holes.
The course puts you away from the main walking area, avoiding pedestrians nicely.
Good signs on each hole.
Generally good flow between holes.
Cons: Biggest problem is that hole 9 leaves off away from anything. To get back to your car, you need to walk through the path in the woods and then back the entire length of hole 2 and hole 1.
Without an over all course map, finding a couple of the tees can be a little tricky (hole 6 is in the woods if you follow along the ball field fence & hole 7 is further up the path towards the house)
Other Thoughts: Good local course to get out on.
Park in the gravel lot after turning at the light. Go straight through the gate down the car path towards the white sign and the single tree for hole 1.
Doesn't play around the church building, but around the park beside the church (church property?)
Certainly a fun course, much better than excepted for a 9hole church course.
