Stumpy Lake Golf Course is a Robert Trent Jones design that provides a unique golfing experience. This scenic layout is routed across a 1,400-acre nature preserve that is absent of any commercial or residential development for miles. The golf course wraps around its namesake lake, which has a canoe and kayak launch as well as a fishing pier. Deer, fox, and eagles are frequently seen on the course and there has even been the occasional bear sighting. Water has a prominent presence throughout and there are also several strategically placed bunkers. Stumpy Lake Golf Course is a layout that will force you to be creative with your shot making but it's still approachable enough for high handicappers to tackle with confidence. If you're looking to get in even more golf, sister club Honey Bee is located almost right next door.

Waste of money

I can’t believe this course has the audacity to charge people $45/$50for a round when three quarters of the greens look as if they’ve been set on fire or dried out to the point they look cracked like the desert floor. Tee boxes were hard as a rock. This was by far the worst course I’ve ever played.

Above average for the price

Got a deal online. Pace was very slow, backed up from hole 1 on. Tee boxes were hard and in bad shape, but fairways and greens were good.

Wet and SLOW!!!!

We had a 10:33am Tee time, they were sop backed up we didn't tee off until 11:15am. With no Marshall to help with pace of play, it was slow! We had a group in front of us always expecting that "once in a lifetime" golf shot. 250yds out???? "I got this!" as they hit their second shot, from short of the lady's tees, about 50yds. Even with it being soaking wet, and the group in front having a special cart for a handicapped golfer, they took FOREVER! We had a good hole to hole and a half open ahead of them, ALL DAY!

Tough in wet conditions....

The course is beautiful but in all fairness it's tough when we've had a lot of rain. That being said, I cannot say enough great things about the staff at this course. The starter not only made the day but provided comic relief as we were wrapping up.

How unfortunate that this course was in such poor conditions. Tee boxes had little to no grass and so hard we had to “hammer” the tee into place. Fairways had almost no grass as well. Greens were quite slow. Course needs a lot of work... drought like conditions seemed to be present. Too bad for a Robert Trent Jones design to be in such poor conditions. Green fees charged by golf now hot deals were excessive for the conditions.

Tee boxes were bad

You needed a hammer to get the tee into the ground. Some tees were nearly bare, some needed to be mowed.
