Rating 73.5

The 27-hole Neshanic Valley Golf Course is the flagship course of the Somerset County Park Commission system. The renowned design team of Michael Hurdzan and Dana Fry created the course. Divided into three nines known as the Lake, Ridge, and Meadow, the course provides three different 18-hole combinations. Each par-36 nine has five different sets of tees. The Meadow/Lake Course features ample amounts of fescue along both the fairways and greens. If you don't hit straight off the tees, you may find yourself in some trouble. There are cavernous bunkers framing the greens, which are also subtly sloped for even more of a challenge. The golf course begins and ends with water holes but you'll find environmentally sensitive wetland areas that come into play throughout. In addition to the 27-hole course, Neshanic Valley also has a nine-hole, par-32 Academy Course.

Not in mid season form

Tee boxes, fairways and greens have all been recently aerated so not the greatest at the moment. And be prepared to lose balls in the rough, it’s high. Every departure for the fairway necessitates a lengthy search.

Lake to Meadow

Always worth the drive to play here. Knew ahead of time that aeration started this week. Lake was done , Meadow gets aerated the next day. Still a challenge. Look forward to playing again.

A different type of course

While a lot of courses test your putting, this one tests the rest of your game, offering difficult landing areas, testing your course management skills. Worth playing for an intermediate golfer.
