The winding entrance road through the original stone archway welcomes you to Kernwood Country Club – a private member-owned country club located on Boston’s North Shore in historic Salem, Massachusetts.
Established in 1914 by a group of Boston business leaders, Kernwood Country Club is rich in history with the
likes of Walter Hagan, Francis Ouimet, and Donald Ross himself present for grand opening exhibition matches. Today, Kernwood remains one of the most beautiful and endeared clubs in the Northeast.
The mission of Kernwood Country Club is to provide a warm and welcoming private retreat for our members, their families and guests, where they may enjoy our highly rated Donald Ross golf facility and premiere country club experience.
We strive to provide family-oriented recreational and social activities that are not only enjoyable, but that foster friendship and fellowship. We pride ourselves on our fine dining services, and the warmth and hospitality of our loyal staff. As a guiding principle, we seek to preserve the values and traditions of our founders by welcoming members who have demonstrated high integrity through their philanthropy and civic engagement.
