Course Information & Details


The Salt Pond Golf Club is an 18 hole public challenging mid length course, nestled within a 538 home and townhome community in Bethany Beach, DE. The ponds and natural woodlands surrounding the course make playing here a unique experience.

A professionally manicured 18-hole public mid length course presents itself as a challenge for even the most seasoned player, yet friendly enough for women, juniors, seniors and beginners. With most foursomes finishing the course in less than 3 hours, the location is ideal for playing golf and enjoying the beautiful beaches all in the same day. Sand Traps in the morning and Sand Bars in the afternoon help make unforgettable memories.

Mark Allison, the Salt Pond Golf Course Superintendent, is dedicated to maintaining our course and facilities to the highest standards. His trademarks are fast greens, fair roughs and beautiful fairways. He is originally from Westchester Co, New York, and studied Turf-grass Management at the University of California. Mark directs the entire golf maintenance staff; he is certified to consult in nutrients, agriculture planning, pesticides for turf and ornamental applications as well as aquatic systems. He has over ten years experience in golf course maintenance, working both in Nevada and Delaware. He joined the Salt Pond Golf Course as superintendent in 2015.
