We enjoyed our round of golf at Somers National. The course was in very good shape, pace of play was good, but the cart paths need a lot of attention.

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!!!!!

Great course - fun and challenging

Had a fantastic time playing Somers for the Fourth of July holiday. A really fun course with a challenging atmosphere. Friendly, easy to talk to staff and a great selection of drinks to choose from. Had such a good time that we went back out for a second round. Will definitely be back.

Fun and challenging course with great value!

I have played this course a few times over the last couple years and the course is in its best shape ever - hands down! The improvements made in the last year are visible all over and the golfer experience is phenomenal. A challenging but entertaining course that provides it all including Bluetooth and distance tracking capabilities in the golf carts down to a beautiful patio overlooking golfers on the 9th hole, this place is great. Would highly recommend checking out the newly renovated grill/bar area for a post-round meal or drink as the staff and service are great. Whether trying Somers for the first time or making a return trip, this place is top of the list for courses I’ve played in the area!

Happy 4th!

Had such a great time playing this course! Lost a lot of balls unfortunately but the layout really made it a lot of fun. If you’re sick of courses that are set up for driver each hole I highly recommend playing here. It’s a challenge in so many ways with its doglegs and beautiful scenery. We got to meet one of the owners who offered to set up our cart for us(technology is awesome on these, bring your charger!) but he was such a great host and we had no idea who he even was until we asked about the course being established in 2019. All in all we will be back!

Tight, quirky, but in great shape

This course is extremely tight. There are some really short and quirky holes as well. The greens were some of the best I've ever putted and the round was very enjoyable. Pace of play and value were great.

Great Experience

The greens were amazing. The course is short, narrow and challenging. Some holes are very quirky and there is a lot of target golf, but it was very enjoyable. A lot of target golf, but I utilized the whole bag

Pluses and minuses

I arrived at course on a Sunday morning, playing there for the first time. The restaurant was closed, and would not open until 11. The person at the pro shop was unhelpful and uninterested. The course was quite challenging with fast greens and lots of elevation changes. The tees were a little beat up, but the course was generally in good shape. It was a beautiful summer day but thunder storms kept cropping up. after we played 9, a storm acme up and every body went inside for shelter and food. The restaurant had 2 parties going as well as the golfers. we had to wait an hour and a half for our food before we resumed playing. That made for a 6 hour round. Not going back anytime soon.

Tougher layout

The course has a tough layout many doglegs and blind shots. Greens are very tricky many of them are sloped heavily .
Condition of the course is sub par. The tee boxes are not level. The fairways on the front 9 are soaking wet.

Great Course, Great People

I have played Somers twice and had a great experience each time. The course was in great shape and rate of play was quick. The carts are brand new, equipped with touchscreen monitors for updated yardages as you move. Staff was very nice - the owner even stopped by and chatted with us as we sat on the outdoor patio by the 18th green after we finished our round. Overall, I would definitely recommend teeing it up at Somers if you’re looking for a nice place to play.

Mike.Awesome

Course is challenging; many tight fairways , plus several
doglegs which made it necessary to make layups and avoid trouble.. The course puts a premium on accuracy . Overall, the course is in very good shape . I’ve played the course many times and this is the best shape it’s ever been . Even though it’s a challenging course it can be a good experience for the average golfer if you use the one less club approach and focus on keeping the ball in play..

Challenging but fun...

Course was in good shape, staff was friendly, had putting green and driving range...Most everything was good except no food or beverages for early tee times...we were able to grab 12 beers for the back 9 but ended up getting charged $89 for the beer. Lunch afterwards was very good though. All in all good experience but beer expense was excessive.
