It is not good when the fairways are in much better shape than the greens. Not just from arreation, more bare dirt than a garden plot.

The course is well laid out and fairly challenging sitting on a series of lakes in Virginia Beach. Unfortunately the course was not in very good shape, the greens were in very poor shape making them a challenge as they were almost impossible to read for speed or break, the grass was burnt and diseased. The fairways were very wet and there was no bounce to balls hit well making the course play longer. This is basically a very nice course, when the greens get back into shape and the fairways dry out it will be a fun course to play.

This is always been a nice course, but has not been maintained at all. Fairways are horrible and greens are bare in about 30% of area. Rough is not maintained either. A once nice track is inn horrible shape.

So, right off the bat I will tell you that I've played this course now 4 times over the last 3 years of playing golf in the VA Beach area during my vacation. I have never any issue here until this year where there were mosquitos swarming me and my playing partner on at least 5 different occasions. I really like the course but this issue really ruined the experience, unfortunately. As for course difficulty, I am not a good golfer, and yet this course doesn't frustrate me like some others do. We've got one more good day during this vacation before the rains come in and due to the mosquitos, I'll be trying another area course. Otherwise, I would certainly have come back for a 5th time.

The course appears to be in poor condition due to neglect. The tee boxes were not mowed and had alot of weeds, the fairways were overgrown and the greens were burnt, rough and unplayable.

The only good thing about someone "Rejecting" Stumpy Lake is that I get to play without a lot of crowds. This year was an exception, it is always in good shape, nice people a joy to paly

Guy9274322,

I'm sorry about our greens, We missed judged the weather for June/July. And we are working hard to get everything back to normal.

We would love for you to give us another try on us, once we are back to normal.

This was the worse course I have played in years. The tee box is poorly designed. The greens were burned badly. The ground crew were cutting grass while we played. Spend your money else where.

The course overall in pretty good shape, but the greens awful, mostly playing on dirt. With the greens in the shape they're in first they should let you know before you tee-off and second give you a discount because they were so bad. I wouldn't recommend the course right now, but when the greens are back yes I would.

The greens are in terrible condition....the worse I've ever seen them. Also, they allowed a shot gun start tournament to start while regular play had not yet do finished from earlier tee times severely backing up play. I plan to curtail my play until the greens improve.

I haven't played this course since around May of this year and it has fell apart. The greens are in terrible shape, the worst I've ever seen them. I used to like this course, however the conditions will not allow me to play this for a long time. The other annoying part about Stumpy Lake is it seems as if every time I play regardless of time they are always cutting the grass. 2pm in the afternoon and an army of mowers are following the flow of golfers. It is super annoying not to mention the fairways are browning so they're just kicking up dust. I was extremely upset with today's round due to the constant sound of a mower and the bad conditions, so upset they I came up here to review the course as I barely book on golf now anymore Bc I most walk nine. Stumpy Lake is also having a tournament this weekend, the players are in for a shock. Extremely over priced for those conditions so please stay away

I'm very sorry about the grounds crew. With 409 Grass we have to wait till the dew burns off for us to mow them.

I booked my tee time through golf now, and had put in to play on a Sunday and somehow the date got reverted to Wednesday. I get an email on Thursday showing that I missed my tee time and was being charged full amount for not show. I immediately call golf now to find out how my time I thought I had booked for Sunda got moved to Wednesday and told them I may have made the mistake and not noticed it changed back, but never the less I wanted to still play Sunday. I knew there woukd be a difference in price which I was more than happy to pay if they would have moved my day to Sunday and worked with me. The manager of the proshop Jessie was of no help or understanding of the issue. It's just sad that a business establishment would rather lose business than to have worked with me on it and kept me playing. I understand the cancellation fees and what not but I feel it would have been different if I just wanted a refund and didn't want to play but to turn away golfers who want to play at your course and have no customer service I feel is bad for buisness. Ended up going to Virginia Beach National (First Tee) and played 18 Sunday. I'm not upset about the lost money I'm upset that the course was unwilling to work with someone who wanted to come play at there course for the first time. I play golf pretty regularly and can promise Stumpy Lake will never get anymore of my money.

I'm used to pristine greens. Fairways are always overrated so I'll just say the rough was kind. I've been in a funk for about a month or so until I came to stumpy lake. I'm a 12 handicap and shot 86 here so about right on. No complaints. The greens we're true to the read and speed. Had a good time. Beat my nemesis for the first time ever so the course gets high marks from me just for that. I was on the greens in regulation 50 percent of the time from the normal people tees. I'm 50. I play a lot and play a lot of the peninsula courses including all the Williamsburg courses with the exception of Kingsmill which many can't ever play. 4 stars for me. I will be back. Thanks stumpy for getting my Mojo back. Btw I played when it had not rained for a while.
