Hanging Rock Golf Course Salem Roanoke, Virginia
Hanging Rock Golf Club was built in 1991 and designed by course architect Russell Breeden.
If you want to get a taste of mountain golf, Hanging Rock is probably where you should head to.
Being a mountain course, it’d be remiss not to mention the breathtaking beauty of the surroundings. Most of the fairways are tree-lined and the autumnal fiery foliage contrasted with the green gives this course a different character and dimension.
As you’d imagine, the grounds have more than just undulations, you’ll get the true rolling hills experience here.
This course has also won some accolades – the biggest one being – one of the best courses to play by Golf Digest with a 3-½ star rating.
With all the hilliness come the challenge too. This is not an easy course, but not unduly penal either. The fairways are fairly wide with large greens that’d help take some edge off of all the slopes and undulations.
You’d get a lot of variety with the holes and if you can get the ball onto the fairways, you should do fine – for the most part.
There is a fair bit of walking if you’d decide to go that route. Some of the holes are spaced far apart, which adds to the distance. Also, 5 holes measure more than 500 yards in length.
Measuring 6600 yards from the back tees, this is a medium-length course. With 5 sets of tees available, this course can accommodate players at all skill levels.
