Prior to this round the course showed wear and tear due to lack of irrigation; recent rainfalls helped get it back to decent playing condition; today’s round was in the afternoon and the course was very open and the pace of play was good; it is basically a challenging course that meanders thru condos and it has lots of challenges, for the typical amateur.

This course need some works

Nice course. But it needs a lot work for the fairways and tee boxes. Fairways are very narrow. Green is pretty fast and hard to read in my opinion.

Mountain Course

My first time at Somers National and didn’t know what to expect. The site focuses on the fact the course is well above sea level. I know understand why! This very short course is filled with narrow chutes with massive elevation changes. Up and down hills that resemble ski trails. Some unique holes including a horseshoe par 5. Overall I recommend the course to anyone who has 5 hours to spare! Leave your driver in the bag with small exceptions. Many holes require an accurate 200 ball. So expect a shot maker course as opposed to letting it fly!

My round at Somers National

I needed a place to golf in Westchester County that I hadn’t played before because I was staying over my mom’s place in Yonkers. Found Somers National Golf Club and from the name, location and hearing from an online buddy learned that it used to be private, so I figured this was a good spot to play.

Greeted wonderfully from the cart guy at the bag drop and the guy in the Pro Shop couldn’t be nicer. Then I learned that my driver probably wouldn’t be needed today because the course was narrow with lots dog legs.

I can’t remember the last time I was forced to hit an iron off the tee on every par 5 hole if ever. I hit driver once on the front 9 and once again on the back 9 and neither time did I really have to. Great spot to work on your mid to long iron game.

The carts have a touchscreen GPS which was nice because you can’t play this course blind. Being able to know the distance to the beginning and end the doglegs or end of fairway is a must.

The course has seen better days with the poor conditions, but with a little TLC (and some money), this course can be a gem again being just an hour from NYC. Tee boxes and sections of fairways need reseeding and the traps need sand in them.

Fun Course!

I had the opportunity to play Somers for the third time and what a difference a year can make! The course was in great shape and you can really see the improvement over the last year. The course has a unique layout, making it challenging for any level of player. The staff was very helpful and friendly and it made my experience that much better. I look forward to playing the course again!

Be ready to deal with the hills

Good course, many holes require you to shape your shots around the hills. If you have a certain shot that doesn't go with the hole-you will struggle. Greens were good, about medium speed. Got out quick, paired with a double. Average round speed-due to me having to look for a couple of errant shots. Some of the carts paths were a bit bumpy, but no real complaints. I'd play again.

Good first time

Staff was friendly. I left one of my clubs at a hole. It was waiting for me when I left. Cart path only is a bit rough. Hot deal and twilight prices are legit. Beautiful and challenging. Would go back.

Great Course

I played Somers with a couple of friends last week. The course was in great shape and the pace of play was never an issue. When the course opens up by the pond it is challenging and very fun. I would definitely recommend playing here.

Another Great Round Of Golf

Shot 18 holes with the wife to celebrate our Anniversary and couldn’t be happier. Challenging and yet forgiving Somers National is the best value for golf in the area.

Great course but......Need a Ranger on busy days

We've played Somers National many times and generally the pace of play has been great. On July 5, however, the course was fairly busy and we were playing behind two foursomes that may never have actually been on a golf course before. [the starter actually advised them that they needed to maintain the pace of play after watching first tee play]. After watching eight players look for eight balls in the woods for long stretches, we finally left the course after six holes and over two hours.
We'll still be playing as the course is challenging, great condition, fast greens, and the people working the course are very nice. Definitely a great place to play. But......ya gotta get a ranger out there on busy days!!!!!
