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.

the greens - what an atrocity

the tee boxes, fairways, & sand traps were in great condition, as expected. The greens were the worst I played all year. Obviously the early Nov aeration hurts BUT you could roll or cut the greens, maybe move the pins. Atrocious would be the word I would use to describe the greens. No one fixes their ball marks so there were craters everywhere. It was disappointing because I know how good they are. They were punching the fairways so they maybe sanding the fairways.

Fun to play but not cheap

This is a fun course to play with a nice mixture of easy and hard holes. Course is in good shape people just need to replace divots and fix ball marks.

Love this course

One of my favorite public courses to play in New Jersey. Not only is it always in great shape but it drains so well right after rain. Rarely is it cartpath only. The difference in each of the three courses makes every hole challenging. Plus you got a love the fact they have a grass practice range.
