Neshanic Valley Golf Course is a 27-hole layout that was designed by the renowned team of Michael Hurdzan and Dana Fry. The course is divided into three nines that can be played in different 18-hole combinations. The nines -- the Lake, Ridge, and Meadow -- are named after the different features of the varied terrain but each par-36 nine has five different sets of tees, which provides playing options for all skill levels. On the Meadow/Ridge Course you'll find ample fescue along the fairways and greens. The greens are especially tricky since not only are they framed by massive bunkers, the putting surfaces are also contoured. Though the slopes are subtle, they can be very tricky. There is a pond on the front nine and environmentally sensitive wetlands come into play throughout.

Somerset County’s Best

Neshanic has three links style 9s Ridge, Lake and Meadow. Generous fairways, consistent good course conditions and a wide variety of hole design make ever round fun. The wind and fescue are the courses primary defense. Enjoy!

First Time Playing

First time playing snow golf

Friend and I got a great deal on GolfNow but we should’ve checked the weather forecast before confirming. It was cold, windy and we even saw some snow flurries in the mix. We played Ridge to Lake. But the course was in a great condition: tee boxes and greens were superb for winter and the fairways were well maintained. I was very impressed with how fluffy the sand was in the bunkers. They definitely maintain this course. 18 was my favorite hole but there a lot of challenging holes. I had a fun time watching my drives sit in the air for 5 seconds, only to travel 120 yards. Can’t wait to return in the spring or summer to get a proper look at the courses.

Great Winter course

Great layout.

My only complaint this course with this course is that it is not closer to my home. The elevated tee boxes and wide fairways coupled with smooth greens make for a great day of golf. Bring a steel spike to get your tee started as many of the tee boxes are slightly frozen just below the ground surface.

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 !
