Very good course

New golf carts are wonderful. More comfortable than my car. Course was in excellent shape . Staff was just okay. No one helping with clubs and drop off area is not staffed at all . Do a few areas they could improve in, but I would go back.

Thank you for the great review!
DUE TO COVID, we are not operating our bag drop. It is in everyone's best interest to have less people touching clubs/bag/cars. We do however, allow you to drive your cart down to the bag drop and grab your clubs. Thank you!

Great Course but pace needs better enforcing

Everything on this course was great except the pace of play needed better enforcement. The group in front of ours was so inconsiderate that we lost enough daylight to finish the round, and there was at least 2 more groups behind us. The group in front would take their sweet time and didn’t have any consideration for the groups behind them. The drink cart should have at least not given them service until they got back on pace. Instead the cart girl served them 2 rounds of shots while 2 groups behind them waited on the same tee. I would play here again but they advertise a fast pace of play here but don’t enforce it.

Thanks for playing! Sorry if the group in front of you was slow playing you. We do monitor everyone from the golf shop and we were likely on them about the pace with gps messages.

Great course, deceivingly challenging.

Nice course, pretty scenic, polite staff, refreshment cart made several loops on the course. This course is more challenging than it appears. Undulating greens, blind tee and approach shots, forced carries and some elevation changes make it pretty tough. Greens were fast and a little beat up but understandable with the recent lack of rain and hot temps. I’ll enjoy playing it again, lack of course knowledge easily cost 3-5 strokes that I look to improve on. Good value overall for a weekday round.

Disappointing round all around

I had played this course many years ago and wanted to get back to try it again but sadly the course was not in very good shape. The greens were something I would have expected from a city municipal course. Some of the rough near the greens was a bit too shaggy as well. Frankly, many of the hole are also unnecessarily hard off the tee with all carry and no bailout areas. It is also slightly inconvenient that they won't allow cart in the parking area. On the plus side the amenities and staff are nice and the round went at a good pace. On the downside, this course is very far away for many people.

Thank you for the comments and for playing Stonewall. We are extremely packed every day with a lot of traffic. We do welcome you out in morning hours and you will find the greens to be very nice. Due to Covid, and a few other reasons such as the parking lot being totally full and crazy, we are not allowing carts in the parking lot. We hope to have you out again soon. Thank again!

Poor course condition

I've played Stonewall before and have greatly enjoyed it. However, I was dismayed to see that the course was severely overplayed. Tees and fairways were severely divoted and greens with ballmarks all over without being fixed. Even the staff recognized that the course was not in good shape and stated "that is was overplayed". While discounted for twilight, I was still not satisfied with the level of play considering the price. I used all four of our sand bottles trying to fix just a small portion of the divots on the course.

Hello, thank you for your review. Yes, playing at twilite can certainly be quite different with people's ball marks. Due to the times, the course has been extremely packed every day. We certainly reiterate the importance of fixing your ball mark and replacing your divot. It is extremely important to us and is frustrating to all involved. We welcome you out sometime in the first half of the day when the greens are most often pure every day. Thank so much for playing and we look forward to having you back.
