What a beautiful place.

Everything about Stonewall Orchard is amazing. From the back tees the course plays long but fair. You will hit every club in the bag, and each hole presents a variety of options off the tee. Each time I finish up on 18 I look forward to my next round here. Even though I live 45 minutes away I still some back many times a year. Great place and a great experience.

A bit cold, but fun

Played this course with my buddies earlier in 21' golf season in Chicagoland. Was a little cold & windy! Greens could have been a bit better/faster, but would still recommend playing the course! Little bit of a hike up North from the Western Suburbs of Chicago. Definitely recommend an early morning tee time.

First Round of Year with My Boys

Despite the cool, early Spring temps and howling wind, we had a thoroughly enjoyable day at Stonewall Orchard. The staff is always helpful and the layout of the course is really a treat - no weak holes and great variety. Natural native grass areas bring North Carolina to mind. Played in well less than four hours despite cart path only. Only negative was that golf cart scoring system/touch screen did not work. Early Spring pricing was a value. I will definitely be back!

Final Round of 2020

Stonewall Orchard is a well kept course with a unique layout that plays to the strengths of the bomb and gouge golfer. Hard to lose a ball on most holes and late Fall golf has much of the fringe reeds cut down offering favorable bounces should a drive or fairway wood drift off course.

Championship Track

I had stumbled upon SO by accident a while ago and then started seeing it hosting many amateur events. I still play in a few amateur tournaments and decided to get out and play there. I thought it was a fun design, a fair test, and a fantastic challenge. There’s definitely some course knowledge that’s needed, and I certainly played the wrong shot a few times. That’s what makes a course interesting though, and it’s why I think SO is a true golf playground (with scenic backdrops everywhere).

Best Course in the Chicagoland Area

There are a lot of great courses in Northern Illinois and in the Chicagoland area, but Stonewall Orchard is my favorite. Whenever a conversation about courses played came up this Summer, Stonewall was always highly recommended by everyone. I finally had a chance to play in July and it did not disappoint. I love the course so much I hype it up to everyone. I took my buddy to play it in early October and now he hypes it up as one of his favorite must play courses anywhere. I can't wait to play the course again and again.
