Fox Hollow Golf Course in Somerville sprawls across acres of rolling woodlands, offering dramatic elevation changes throughout the par-70 layout. Designed by local designer Hal Purdy, the abundant trees and hilly terrain have been deftly incorporated into the course. Originally built in 1967, the golf course was completely redesigned in 2000 to make it more challenging while at the same time improving its playability. Since its renovation, it has garnered a local following but it is still one of the better kept secrets of Somerset County, making it likely that golfers will be able to play the golf course regardless of the day or time. In addition to the course, there is also a practice facility with a grass driving range, a bunkered practice green, and an expansive putting green. One reason Fox Hollow G.C. is a popular choice, besides the enjoyable layout, is the affordability it offers.

Great Course - Challenging but fair

I played fox hollow for the first time yesterday and loved it. Fairly challenging course with a lot of elevation but played true. Will certainly by back. 5/5 and great value.

Needs a tree removal program

Played here for the first time this past weekend: Routing - Very good piece of land and a lot of the holes make good use of it. Greens - As others state, the greens are in good shape for a public course and relatively quick. However, I found the contours from green-to-green to be redundant. It seems every green is circular in shape, sloped back to front, with very little internal contour. You could place yourself on any green and not know what hole you were on. Fairways - Lots of slope, makes for a lot of interesting side hill lies. In good condition. Tee boxes - Lots of issues here. First, way too much slope on the tee boxes and impossible to find a level lie on many of the par 3's. Second, on most of the par 3's, the tees were placed on the side of the tee boxes with overhanging limbs blocking half of the green. This doesn't make a course tougher, all it does it slow down play and frustrate golfers. There were big backups on the par3's because overhanging limbs forced everyone to miss the green on the most penal side of the hole....makes no sense. Please do not place tees behind overhanging limbs, or even better, develop a tree trimming program to trim them back. Pace of play - Way too slow. A Saturday morning tee off at 8am was a five hour round. For $90 I find that unacceptable. I can go play Bethpage Black for $75 in five hours, but I'm playing Bethpage Black and know that comes with the territory.. Rangers were out there in carts, but I never saw them actually talking to groups. They spent all of their time observing...maybe they think their mere presence was improving pace of play? It wasn't. Overall - Great piece of land, good course routing and conditioning. But way too many trees that force lines off the tee and uninteresting green complexes.

Wooded holes/ placement course.

First time playing it was quiet here on a weekday. Second visit, the staff was super friendly (maybe new training/staff) was a little much actually, ha. This course is a shot makers course. Pulled driver on maybe 6 holes. Good if you can get it on a deal, would recommend. Like not love.

Will be coming back to this great course!

1st time here and I'm coming back! Beautifully maintained course with some of the best greens in the area. Hazards including mature trees, winding creeks and ponds along with undulating elevations on almost every hole made the course a challenge. But it also produced nice views throughout the course. This is a hidden gem and IMO well worth the price. Great service on the course (starter, grounds crew and drink cart) and off (bar/restaurant and pro shop).
