Golf Courses Near Salisbury, NC
Salisbury, located in North Carolina’s Piedmont region some 45 miles northeast of Charlotte, is best known as the headquarters of Food Lion supermarkets and the place where Cheerwine soda was created. For golf, the private Donald Ross-designed Salisbury Country Club may be the best course in town, but nicely wooded Corbin Hills Golf Course, Rolling Hills and McCannless, both of which are short and player-friendly, and The Revival Club at The Crescent, which has hosted qualifying for the U.S. Amateur and MidAmateur championship, are popular tee times in the public sphere. Outside of town, Sapora Golf Club, which churns through wooded corridors, and Warrior Golf Club, a well-conditioned course that winds around Lake Wright, are both good bets.
Much of Salisbury’s identity traces back to Civil War times. The Historic National Cemetery and Confederate Prison Site showcases one of the war’s most notorious prisons and has 10,000 unmarked graves of Union soldiers, more than anywhere else in the South. Downtown Salisbury is especially impressive. The tree-lined 30-block Historic District is dotted with homes that survived the Civil War. There are plenty of places where you can sip Cheerwine, a bubbly cherry soda concoction that is perfect for a post-round golf toast.
