“Lodes”tone of Fun

Course lived up to the hype! Hot Deal for $50 was the reason we stopped here on our annual trip. Friendly staff, and immaculate course conditions made for an unbelievable experience. Shot a little above average (84), but just a great excuse to go back!

Nice course not what it used to be

The course is still very nice with a great layout but they have let parts of it go. Especially the bunkers, there is grass growing in most of them. The road in and parking area is gravel and very dusty, seems not finished but it has been this way for years. No beverage cart. No water on the course.

Scenic Course nice round

Lodestone was far superior to Fantasy Valley . When visiting Deep Creek would recommend. Course is challenging and scenic. Bunkers weren’t in the best condition. Gas carts put a damper on the day. Course is very wet til noon.
Don’t think I’d want to play it in the fall..

Great Golf Course

We had a 9:30a tee time after about 3.5/4" of rain the previous 36 hrs. Course allowed 90* rule off path, there were definitely wet spots in low areas. Range balls included with your greens fee & an attendant coming around asking if more balls were needed. Overall the course played very well from tee to green. Manicured traps, rakes available. Ranger was seen on the front and back, always friendly. Refreshment cart passed 4 times (they will not take a card beyond the 12th; FYI)! Scenic mountain views all around the course. I'm very excited to make a trip back for some fall golf!

Better stay in the fairway!

Beautiful course and nice layout from tee to green. Not sure it’s worth $100 but it was definitely worth the $50 Hot Deal on GolfNow. The course was in great shape but it’s extremely penalizing if you don’t keep it in the fairway or green. Most of the course is surrounded by knee length fescue that basically eats balls. Bunkers were raked and greens were true. Putting/chipping green was well maintained but the driving range was more like something you’d find at a municipal course. It’s definitely the best course in the Oakland / Mchenry area and I would definitely play it again.

Fantastic views,great layout.

Two complaints: First-sand traps were lousy, grass growing, hard pack, not very well kept. Second- very poor food/snacks selection.

Loved Loadstone Golf Course

From tee boxes to greens the course was well cared for. The views from some of the fairways were incredible. Looking forward to another round tomorrow.
