Salem Hills Golf Club will be open next year.
While the ownership may change, the 6,992-yard, par-72 course will remain open to golfers no matter what the status of the pending sale of the facility.
Co-owner of the course, Veronica Godwin, said that a purchase agreement for the business had been reached recently and that the potential buyers are performing due diligence. She said that the buyers had agreed that the land 57-year-old site would remain a golf course, a condition of the sales agreement. Salem Hills originally opened in 1963 and has been a popular course for area golfers under the ownership of Frank and Veronica Godwin. The couple also owned what is now Walnut Creek Country Club in South Lyon from 1969 until 1088 and Marion Oaks Golf club in Howell from 1990 until 2003.
Godwin said that should the pending deal fall through, the course would open under the current ownership next spring and all commitments to leagues would be satisfied. An announcement last fall that the course might close due to the aging infrastructure prompted several offers from potential buyers for the Six Mile Road site. A condition the Godwins’ imposed on the sale at the time of the announcement was the continuance of the golf course at the site.
The couple said they planned to close the facility at the end of October, but have changed their plans in light of the pending sale agreement.
