My title here is in respect to the layout which is very cool. I played the front 9 at 6:30pm and the holes you see from the clubhouse, you are thinking grassland, no trees, links style golf. But then on the 4th hole - long par 5 you have to keep it inside a shoot of tall mature trees for 500 yards plus. Then a par 3 over water with trees guarding the green around. Then it opens back up. You'd think the houses all around would make it target golfy but they are very far back from the course so no issues.

I hit a wall at 6th hole as a single but no worries I filled divots and soaked in the late evening sun.

For being able to see every shot in front of you, still expect some uneven lies as mounds galore all over the place. Conditions were perfect, tee boxes, fairways and greens, all very lush. Go play this course, you'll like it.

The nicest course I have played in NW Ohio. Challenging shots from the tee and also almost every approach shot needed to be placed well. Played the Blue tees and was able to brake 90 but just barely. There are a lot o blind shots and having never played the course before was not sure where I could miss safely... Overall condition was superb with nice fast greens. Will be back

Attitude of the staff, particularly behind counter and starter, is enough to make me play elsewhere in town! Telling people what tees they should be playing, not knowing the individuals, is ridiculous. In case the starter sees this, you told me I shouldn't be on the tips, course is playing 7,300 yards today. Well, I shot 77 from the tips, with wind, rain, and no roll!! Birdied the #1 handicapped hole! Enjoyed the course, not the staff!

This course is beautiful and challenging from start to finish. If you are looking for a wide open course to spray balls on, this is not for you. There is plenty of danger that exists out there.

This course is always in phenomenal shape. One of the best "bang for your buck" courses in Northwest Ohio. Easily the best public course in the Toledo Metro area.

The course plays tough, yet fair. A shot makers course, it would serve you well to think about your approaches into the greens here.

I have played Stone Ridge three times this year and each time, I walk away saying, "This is the best public Course in NW Ohio." The layout is nothing short of awesome. Off the tee, its fairly wide-open but most days the Bowling Green breeze takes away that advantage. The course is fair and fun and the greens get quick this time of year. I highly recommend this place.

The greens are way too firm in the mid to late summer time, you land a ball on the front of the green and it rolls over. The fairways, bunkers, and rough were in great condition. There is a restaurant with great food but the staff was very slow when it got busy. Overall the course is nice and it was mostly a good experience.

Large, rolling, slick greens and wide open fairways are the hallmarks of this well laid out and well-maintained tract. The openness of the course reduces definition and makes targeting your drives more of a challenge.

This is the fourth time I've played this course and every time I've played it, the pace of play has been poor. The pro shop paired myself (7 handicap) and another player, with 2 high school beginners and put us off behind 2 high school foursomes of the same ability as the players they paired us with. It took us 5 1/2 hours to play 18 holes. Definitely not acceptable. The course is also not friendly to walkers. I would have preferred to walk with this pace of play, but the price is the same as using a golf cart. Of course, the high school players walked and received a discount.

It's a great course, but the management may be more interested in income opposed to catering to customers spending a good amount of money. This has happened on more than one occasion so I will not be returning and will advise my friends to do the same.
