Fox Hollow Golf Course in Somerville sprawls across acres of rolling woodlands, offering dramatic elevation changes throughout the par-70 layout. Designed by local designer Hal Purdy, the abundant trees and hilly terrain have been deftly incorporated into the course. Originally built in 1967, the golf course was completely redesigned in 2000 to make it more challenging while at the same time improving its playability. Since its renovation, it has garnered a local following but it is still one of the better kept secrets of Somerset County, making it likely that golfers will be able to play the golf course regardless of the day or time. In addition to the course, there is also a practice facility with a grass driving range, a bunkered practice green, and an expansive putting green. One reason Fox Hollow G.C. is a popular choice, besides the enjoyable layout, is the affordability it offers.

Nice course

The ranger was a nice pleasant person . The man behind the counter was rude , nasty and extremely un accommodating. When I went to check in I noticed four foursomes by the first tee waiting in line . Which anyone would have to admit is somewhat unusual . When I checked in I had asked why the back up the gentleman behind the counter said what back. There’s no back up . I figured maybe he didn’t know so I said there’s something like 8 carts 16 people ,Chinese men . He got insulted and said what are you talking about they play here every week and I know them for many years . I said I don’t have anything against Asian people I’m just asking if there’s a back up and I described who’s waiting . He got so made that he came outside with me . Like I was making it up and he wanted to show me i was wrong . He just had to say these people play here a lot and they are one group and they lineup like that . That’s all he made a federal case out of it . Extremely rude

Course is short but fun

I've played Fox Hollow at least 20 times over the years. It's kept in good shape, the greens are consistent, and MOST of the staff is friendly. They just have one employee (blue hat this year) that is the most combative starter I've ever met at a course. It's been that way for years, and he doesn't seem to be changing his ways as he grows older.

Unfortunately, it just takes one employee to ruin an experience. Time after time, year after year, blue hat guy's power trips ruin the mood for the first few holes - I've seen him aggress other groups too.

Frankly, the rest of the staff and management is excellent, the food is excellent, the driving range is usually open, and the course is pure. I just don't understand why they keep such a pugnacious person up front.

The pace of play was terrible. We had a reservation but people without a reservation were added in front of us We signed up for 18 holes but stopped after 9 holes when the 9 holes took close to 3 hours. There was no ranger and we waited on almost every shot The course was also not in good shape

Since we endeavor to make sure that everyone has a great time we contacted all group that day and could not find you. Please call us at 908-586-4361.

Did you play our course - Fox Hollow GC in Branchburg, NJ or the other Fox Hollow Golf Courses in PA or NY? They are often confused with us.

I'm sorry to hear of your bad experience. Please call me at 908-586-4361 so we can make it right. Pace of play is not normally an issue, so I will look into it with our director of golf right away. Our average pace is under 4 hours and we have received rave reviews about the course conditions.

Great First Play

Played today for the first time. Course was pretty much in great shape, bunkers were a bit hard. Cart girl came around frequently. Burgers at the grille afterwards were a hit. We'll definitely plan to be back next year.

Great course!

i played today and enjoyed the course very much. Was in excellent condition. we finished in 4 hours and 15 minutes which is decent for a saturday. I believe the starters name was Alex, he was super helpful and gave my group tips on the course which was great! The man in the proshop was a little rude when i asked if its cart path only today. Besides that it was an excellent day!

Pace of play ruined overall game

This was my first time playing the course (Links to Canyon). Overall I give it only 3 stars due to two main issues:
1) range is still mats only? Please!!
2) had to leave after 14 holes to get to my anniversary dinner; those 14 took 4 hrs 15 min.

5 hour rounds during the week become quite frustrating, especially given the price and the range mats. The course was beautifully managed, though, and only a couple gimmicky holes.
