Somerset County Park Commission Golf Courses Update July 1st, 2021
Please be advised that starting Saturday July 10th, Somerset County Park Commission will no longer offer single rider golf carts due to the increasing popularity of play at the five golf courses, as well as a limited availability of golf carts and the excessive wear and tear caused by carts to the courses.
Golf carts will be issued on a first come, first serve basis according to one’s tee time reservation. Foursome and threesome reservations shall be limited to two golf carts per reservation. Twosome reservations will be limited to one cart per reservation.
It is the responsibility of the person reserving the tee time to fully communicate these procedures to all golfers in his or her group in advance to arriving at the golf course.
There will be no exceptions to this policy.
Thank you for your cooperation.
