Rating 73.7

Neshanic Valley Golf Course is a 27-hole layout that sprawls across 420 acres of rolling farmland. It is the flagship course of the five-course Somerset County Park Commission system. The design team of Michael Hurdzan and Dana Fry crafted the layout, which is divided into three nines called the Lake, Ridge, and Meadow. The nines can be played in different 18-hole combinations. The Lake/Ridge Course, as the name would imply, starts out with a few water holes. In addition to the lakes on the front nine, environmentally sensitive wetland areas come into play throughout. The fairways and greens are bordered by ample fescue and the putting surfaces are closely guarded by strategically placed bunkers. Neshanic Valley also offers a nine-hole, par-32 Academy Course, which is great for beginners.

I live outside of this county. But I joined Somerset County as a non resident because Somerset County courses are usually in great shape. I love Neshanic Valley. It is a super nice course, but a little pricey for the average person.

PGA Championship Saturday

Our club played today on the 1st sunny Saturday. It was worth the weight. The rough was up and the fairways pristine. We felt like we had our own championship. No complaints whatsoever regarding the course. Since it's a composite, we played Ridge/Lake. 1 suggestion, water every few holes would be good.. the staff was cool. We even got a lost club back.
The clubhouse was slammed with traffic but it was handled professionally. I ordered the grilled chicken. The marinade came through in the cooking. Best I've had. Kudos

Great GC

Always looking forward playing this one. 27 holes to choose from.
We almost didn't finish because of impending thunderstorm. I would always recommend this course.

Beautiful, open layout

Plenty of room on the fairways to miss right or left. Not too long. Fairways in good shape considering it is the beginning of the season. Greens still recovering from winter and aeration holes. Pretty bumpy surfaces, but free of leaves or pine cones, etc. High 50's but when the wind gusted and the sun hid behind the clouds it was brisk. Still a great day. Nice views. Played with 3-some in 3 1/2 hours. Love the course and would play it again.
