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.

Hard to find any better

Hot deal price was excellent.
Course conditions for late November were very good.
Layout is always challenging with a premium on shot making.
If the wind is blowing, hang onto your hat !

Excellent course, but normal price is high

Neshanic Valley is a county owned golf course with near-Country Club conditions. The greens, fairways, sand traps, and rough are all in excellent condition. Most tee boxes are in great condition with some a little chewed up - still really good, but not excellent condition.

One bad aspect is that the starters are not allowed to let GolfNow players tee off early. Even if the tee is empty for several tee times before your assigned tee time, they are supposed to hold you until your assigned tee time.

2nd Time Back

I played here one time last year and always wanted to come back. Got a HotDeal on Golf Now, so this was my chance. Played Meadow/Ridge, Meadow I played last year, Ridge was new to me, I enjoyed it. Was told Blue tees equal to white so we played off them, had alot of long 2nd shots all day, think I'll move up to silver next time. Aeration warning when I took tee time, but they were working on the other 9 this day, our 9's were scheduled for the next days. Greens were great and challenging. Loved the $4 foot long hot dog too.

GOOD AND NOT GOOD

Ten AM tee time on a beautiful but very windy day. The course was great as usual. Five hour round. The staff did not make any attempt to speed up play that I could see.
When it is crowded, this course should not allow walkers.

Awesome Time

Great course, fabulous condition. Staff was friendly and helpful. Conditions were awesome, firm smooth greens, flawless fairways. Pace of play a bit slow, but a small outing backed things up a bit. Staff was friendly and helpful, good tips from the starter on some of the intricacies of the course. Excellent value for a top quality venue!

Great course! But staff not so much.

I walked in for 10AM tee time. The person in the counter did even say Good Morning or welcome. I asked can I use the range"range is closed" that's it. He then tells me that are mowing it. It's 10AM!!! Why are they cutting the grass on the range knowing there are many people waiting to use the range.
*** I then realized the whole day they had workers cutting the grass, fixing bunkers, all through out the time we were playing.
I just don't understand how they can't do it earlier in the morning like other courses.
Other then that, the Ranger was good, course was great, but the guy working behind the counter needs to change his attitude.
