Should be refundrd

They charge for green fees but it's clear they don't use that money towards upkeep. Its been extremely hot the past month but it looks like the entire course hadn't been watered at all. Tee boxes and fairways were completely dry. Absolutely unacceptable for a "private course". $80 a round for those conditions is laughable.

Course Has a Chance

So Ive read a ton of reviews on this place, lately a lot of negatives, HOWEVER considering the drought weve been in, Ill give them some credit for trying to keep the course as hydrated as possible.

The course condition is a bit below average but again with some care it can be above. The fairways are spotted with burnouts and the tee boxes need some SERIOUS upkeep...please management handle this.

Also, this course is completely playable and the greens in very good shape.

FWIW: I played a twilight round with no one in front of me and no waiting....the rating would be lower truthfully if I were waiting around for players in front of me.

Very poor condition

the course was in very poor condition. Some of the tee boxes were just sand, dirt and crab grass. The fairways are very narrow. With the fairways being rock hard, the ball runs off the fairway often. The greens were remarkably good compared to every other aspect. I t will be years before i consider playing this course again. I was extremely disappointed in its condition.

Solid course. Weird conditions.

Great course. Lots of elevation changes. Relatively short with many blind shots. Lots of irons off the tee but good opportunities to try and cut doglegs with driver. I will definitely go back.

Pace of play was ok but on the slow side 4.5hr round with the back taking the majority of the time.

One note. I’d never played the course before so I got there a bit early (11:10 for an 11:45 tee time). Parking is plentiful but it is a hike to the clubhouse. Got to the clubhouse no later than 11:20. The checkin process was smooth but took a few extra minutes due to a slow patron and a software issue. I was out by 11:30. I found my way to the first tee and waited for the starter who was up on the fairway. When he came back to the tee box he said the 11:45 group had already teed off and was on the green. It was 11:40. Another golfer was in the same boat and equally dumbfounded. We were told to skip #1 and jump to #2. It was all really weird and I am hoping situational.

Somers becomes another Drought Victim

Like area Muni course, add Somers to the list of drought addled Westchester golf courses.. Despite all the work that they put into the course last year, the drought has undone all that effort. The front 9 is in really tough shape and the hard tac fairway takes a mid fairway shot and throws it into the OB area. The back 9 is in better shape due to the shading but has its tough spots. Too bad. The 19th hole amenities continues to be amateur hour with unhappy employees and lackadaisical service,.

What happned to the Fairways ?

We used to love golf at this place. I was there 2 months ago and the course was in fantastic condition; lush fairways, great greens.
This time at least 40% or more of the fairways were in a burnt grass / dried out condition.
I hope they are able to remedy this; it was sad to see this otherwise great local course in this condition.

Somers National Review

I have been an avid golfer my entire life. Its not often that I complain about a golf course… actually this is the first one ever. The course was completely dried out dead grass. The tee boxes were mounds of dirt. And the traps were piles of rocks. Because I have played here many times before, I anticipated all of this. One thing I didn't anticipate was how rude starter was to me and my friends. We played on a day that was about 98 degrees, sun beaming down (poor decision on our part). The starter proceed to tell us we cant bring our own waters onto the course. I explained to him that it is excruciatingly hot out. He said yes thats fine but you have to buy them here, and began to legitimately scream at me about it and rant about how cheap I was (meanwhile I was the one spending $80 to play at the worst course in Westchester). During our round, which we couldnt have our waters. We saw the cart girl once on the 4th hole and that was it for the rest of the 14 holes. Not a single drop of liquid on a single hole out there. I thought I was going to faint. I used to play at Somers all the time years ago. Its probably close to 8 years since I played there, and yesterday completely refreshed my memory as to why I’ll never go back again. This also wasn't the first bad encounter I’ve had with employees here. I’m not an aggressive person, but I’m glad to say I’m genuinely happy this place is going out of business.
