Review for Salish Cliffs

Reviewer Score:


Salish Cliffs Golf Club sits on some rugged terrain, offering golfers with a variety of golf shots. Each hole is unique, offering low handicappers many decisions while still being relatively wide and playable for the high handicapper. One area to highlight was the bunkering, which I found to be delightful given their “fingers”. Routing wises the course, considering you take a cart is a treat. A weakness to note regarding the course are the par 3’s which all feature severe downhill tee shots. The courses remoteness adds much to the experience. Though not as wild as other Mountain Golf Courses, such as Sunday River or Sugarloaf, it is highly recommended to take a cart at Salish Cliffs. It becomes very evident that the course was designed for cart use, as the walk between hole to tee box can be quite challenging and traverses some wild turns not best suited for walkers. Playing Salish coincidentally gave me memories of Green Mountain National another one of Gene Bates set on similar topography. Like many mountain courses quirks are very much to be expected due to the topography changes and challenges of constructing 18 quality holes at any given site.
