|12/10/2003||The course is now green as all the seeding that occurred this fall has grown in. The conditions here have greatly improved to join the improvements to the layout that were previewed this fall.|
|9/3/2003||It is said that the saddest words are “what could have been” so certainly some of the happiest words are “what will be”. This is the case with Somerset as the millions spent on redesigning this eighteen hole diamond in the rough bear fruit. Somerset is but a few months of favorable weather away from competing with the best of the daily fee courses on the I-95 VA corridor.
The re-modeled clubhouse overlooks the scenic Rapidan River valley with an old civil war hospital visible from the dining room. Spectacular vines are also to be found on the course as in hole #17 which wraps around a beautiful bend in the Rapidan River and is bisected by 3 creeks. Elevation changes abound on this natural setting for a course that offers the challenge of every club in the bag.
Currently in a limited play mode to protect the careful development of the new course, Somerset is a treat not only for what it offers but for its potential. This staff from the F and B director (an orange – Syracuse that is) grad to the GM (a big orange- Tennessee here) are energized by the prospects for this budding golf community. This enthusiasm is contagious for even the casual golfer, and you will find yourself asking about lot prices before you drive away. Investors have committed tremendous resources into Somerset now it is Mother Nature’s turn to repay their generosity with a few weeks of gentle weather.
Right now the course is in rough shape condition wise - so if you do get a chance to visit there - remember it is a preview round at preview rates. Ayce
