Great golf

Great course layout in a country side setting. Greens roll true. Fairways a little dry but very playable. Bunkers are being renovated. Overall pace of play is great. One drawback is no driving range. But ideas to make it happen are being discussed. Staff is courteous and friendly. Go play a round. It’s worth it

Course fairways and greens are in great shape, some greens have bald areas but not significant, some fairways/greens roughs are overgrown and nit consistent. I'll give 3.5 stars

First time at this track

Course was perfect for me! Tee’d off at 9:10 and was done shortly after 11. So really enjoyed it not being crowded. And a big Thanks to the four groups that let me play through. Overall the course wasn’t in bad shape. Could use some water but so could this whole part of Virginia right now. Greens were in great shape. Fairways were good as well. Tee boxes on back nine were being aerated. Would play again.

(Pace of play matters more to me than conditions of the course. So will give up a little course perfection for a short timed round)

Cant wait for grass to grow

Really enjoyed the layout. Interesting/ challenging without being penalizing. Greens in very good shape and fast for this time of year. Fairways still more dormant than others in area and cut very tight so pretty thin lie at times. I’ll be back in a few weeks hopefully with green fairways!

Improving with new ownership

This course has undergone a lot of changes recently. The course is much more open and forgiving now, as well as being a bit longer. I wish they had a driving range. The overall grass quality is better and the greens were looking really good.

First and last time

Awful course, greens are atrocious, fairways (if you really want to even call them that) are just weeds, course layout is dangerous.

Somerset First Time

Really fun course and I would give it a B. The cart path needs a little work and the staff was friendly. The fairway is starting to wake up, but the greens were in great shape. Recommend for all skill sets and we'll be back.

Give it time

Greens were nice but thats about it. Give it time though. A company can in a will start doing renovations. If they shut it down for a few months aerate the fairways it could become a really nice course.

Very challenging layout

Course is in good shape. Greens in much better condition than last year. Fairways are still dormant so I can't judge conditions.
