Best Golf Courses Near Winston Salem, NC
To play golf in Winston Salem, home to Wake Forest University, is to walk in the footsteps of great PGA Tour players, most notably Lanny Wadkins, Curtis Strange, and the King, Arnold Palmer and more recently rising stars like Will Zalatoris and Jennifer Kupcho. While Old Town Club, which hosts Wake’s home matches, is private, public golfers looking for tee times head to facilities such as Meadowlands, which is full of elevation changes; Olde Homeplace, a converted farm with a signature par-5 9th hole that plays around a big barn; Reynolds Park, a nicely varied muni; Tanglewood Park, which boasts 54 holes that include a par-3 course, the Reynolds Course, and the recently renovated Championship Course, site of the 1974 PGA Championship; and Oak Valley, an Arnold Palmer design. Winston-Salem is a delight for culture mavens with its Downtown Arts District, annual film festival, and many museums, including the living history villages at Old Salem and Bethabara, but golf is one of the city’s greatest sources of pride. Now do what the locals do — treat yourself to an Arnold Palmer!
