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.

Such a great course. Even though they had recently did airation, the course was still in great shape. We also have about 2 inches of rain the day before, but there was no signs of that the next day. Great job to the crew there.

Good time. Greens slow and a few bumpy probably due to sand put down.

I really needed a hot deal after this winter and was surprised that Neshanic Valley was even open, let alone a $34 hot deal! Turned out to be a great day. About 5f warmer than expected. It was windy and this links style course doesn't have huge protection from wind. Conditions of the course were what you would expect pre-season. All the fescue is down so it was a bit easier to be errant off the tee and still find it. Greens are really nice and will be fantastic in full season. Today they ran true but were very slow due to the shagginess. Surprisingly smooth too.

It is a cold windy afternoon in NJ. I am very happy to be able to play golf even a lot of house still without power. The course condition is surprisingly good. Course condition is not worse than that in the summer time.

Playing golf in the Northeast in March is always a good thing. The course has an amazing layout and the openness and views are really pretty. The wind was an issue but the course was in amazing shape considering winter. The greens were rolled that day and the fairways and tee boxes were pristine. The staff was very polite. If I had any complaint it is that I arrived as a single at 11:05 AM for my round and was put with 3 other golfers and although the course was empty they still made us wait 50 minutes until our scheduled 12:10 PM tee time. That is not anything terrible that would sway me from not going back again. I look forward to making this one of my 10 courses to play during the season this year.
