Neshanic Valley Golf Course is a 27-hole layout that sprawls across 420 acres of rolling farmland. It is the flagship course of the five-course Somerset County Park Commission system. The design team of Michael Hurdzan and Dana Fry crafted the layout, which is divided into three nines called the Lake, Ridge, and Meadow. The nines can be played in different 18-hole combinations. The Lake/Ridge Course, as the name would imply, starts out with a few water holes. In addition to the lakes on the front nine, environmentally sensitive wetland areas come into play throughout. The fairways and greens are bordered by ample fescue and the putting surfaces are closely guarded by strategically placed bunkers. Neshanic Valley also offers a nine-hole, par-32 Academy Course, which is great for beginners.

They don't treat you right, because you bought HotDeal

I was playing in the rain on 09MAY. After about the 5th hole, we had to stop playing, because the rain was steady and play was getting near impossible. When we went back in and asked for rain check to a cashier, the ruthless manager (his name was Al) just stepped in and said "no rain check will be issued, because you got the HotDeal from GolfNow.com." Then he went on said "we didn't get any payment from you nor from GolfNow.com", and further said "if you booked with us, and paid to us directly we could've helped you. Go talk to GolfNow about getting any refunds or credit".

The whole fiasco was like getting a second class citizen treatment. Further I was very embarrassed in front of my family. This manger made our day the worst possible mother's day event.

Buyers be aware...
Do not expect to be treated like a customer, if you purchased HotDeals for this course.

Course in great condition

First time playing Neshanic Valley and will definitely be back. The course is challenging and was in great condition, especially for a country course. I would highly recommend.

Always good, no surprises.

Finished under 4 hours as a foursome. Could have finished even faster.
Light drizzle, but good fast-playing company made a good course even more enjoyable.
A must-play course in this area!

Greens still showing punch marks

Love this track, odd that the greens still show signs of being punched/sanded? Would play here all the time if it was closer.
