In 1975, the Heritage Hills housing community opened in Somers , New York , with a challenging nine-hole course designed by golf course architect Geoffrey Cornish. As the housing development continued to grow, with it came the need for a second course. This time it was an 18-hole Geoffrey Cornish layout that fully utilized the landscape without being hindered by the housing development. The course was, at that time, for the exclusive use of the residents of Heritage Hills. That has all changed…

In 1997, North American Golf Properties bought the golf courses. And today, their goal, to open a first rate membership club for the “Sunday golfer” has come to fruition. Golfers can pay a fraction of the $100,000 it costs to join an elite Westchester club and play what has been termed “guilt free golf” in reference to the many high-end club members whose season ending woes revolve around the fact that they didn’t play enough, or eat enough, to merit the high-cost of private club membership.

After a major remodeling effort in 2004, which included $400,000 in course improvements and changing the face of the clubhouse and pro shop, the two courses opened as the featured attraction of the new Somers Pointe Golf Club. Featuring the full membership experience, including a multi-room restaurant, meeting rooms and banquet facilities, the innovative pricing policy has attracted members not only from Westchester but from other nearby areas including New York City and Connecticut.
