While there are better values to be had in Northern Virginia golf, there’s no disputing Stonewall Golf Club is a beautiful course.

The layout and location is the selling point here, with multiple holes having great views of Lake Manassas. You can even see glimpses of its prestigious neighbor, Robert Trent Jones Golf Club. Stonewall’s layout meanders through the woods and along the shoreline with a wide variety of holes. Some very narrow holes are often followed by some wide open ones but be sure to bring plenty of balls with you. Between the water hazards, the woods, the adjacent houses and the thick rough, you’re likely to lose a few or more during your round.

The course conditions are excellent with smooth, rolling fairways, soft tee boxes, groomed bunkers, and fast greens. The course was still a bit soggy when I played and was cart-path only and there were signs of heavy use on the green. The slow pace of the day at least gave me ample time to repair several ball marks.

There’s a full staff on hand (the beverage cart girl was very attentive although the young starter was having a bit of an off day not knowing who was out and who was waiting) and the facilities at Stonewall are what you’d expect for a premium club that charges over $100 a round. I paid $70 for a twilight rate and even in early September, there’s not much of a window if you want to pay less than triple digits and get 18 holes in. It was a 5-hour round on the dot for me, but I’m sure the cart-path-only had a lot to do with it.

Overall, Stonewall is a great course if you can afford it. The course conditions are exponentially better than nearby Virginia Oaks but you certainly pay for what you get.

Always loved stonewall as it is one of the best layouts in the area. Thought about joining the Patriot Club; should be renamed the Waitriot Club. Unbelievably slow round and no one in sight to speed up play. Might have something to do with the under 20 delinquents that seem to run the course. Sad!

I looked forward to playing here because of the reviews. Greens, fairways, tees all in good shape. The people were extremely friendly. End of positive part of the review.

Slow, unregulated play. Slowest I've experienced in years and no one was trying to move people along, possibly because the only people I saw running the course were under 20 years old. At one tee, we were one of 4 groups parked asset the tee.

It's a tough course which is fine but with hidden landing zones. Knowing the course is pivotal. A number of times I was guessing what's on the other side of this hill, around this turn, the radius of the turn, and guessed wrong.

Bring lots of water because there are practically no igloo coolers on the course. There is one at the tenth hole, right after you pass the clubhouse on the turn and have gotten drinks. Poor choice of cooler location if they're going to have only one.

I bailed after hole 10 because of the pace of play. I doubt I'll be back unless I see a hot deal and am in a good mood. Won't be paying $72 again though

Stonewall is a fantastic course - it's always been in great condition, it's a scenic location, and the views & layout is wonderful...but for $120, they need marshals and to ENFORCE pace of play rules - 5+ hours and a "well, it's Sunday afternoon and it's slow" is a total BS excuse to give to patrons - so, from a course & challenge standpoint it's great, but be prepared for a long slow slog, unfortunately, which takes away from what would otherwise be a positive experience

Stonewall is a challenging layout with water and sand hazards. Slope ratings are pretty high (137 for the white tees which were around 6,300 yards). Some holes required long shots over water or ravine type hazards, so it's best suited for lower handicapped players. Pace of play can be an issue, but we got around in 4.5 hours (no rangers). Conditions were generally good. Fairways were nice and the roughs were thick. Greens were nice and reasonably quick, although there were many not-repaired ball marks. The sand traps need more sand.

Best course in NoVa open to the public. Amazing views of Lake Manassas on front and back. Great use of water throughout the course. Staff his great to deal with and customer friendly...they have an outstanding range too. Good sand and chipping area to practice... The Patriot club has been a great deal the past few winters. greens get a little beat up with the volume of play and not as good in comparison to the Md courses in the 270. But considering the sweltering summers in the Piedmont region, this course holds up well. The veranda has a great view of 18 and the dining room bar is a good place to hang out post round or lunch.

Played Stonewall for the first time today and was very impressed. Ive played majority of the northern VA public/private courses and this is definitely top 3. Course conditions were incredible for the last day of Feburary. Greens couldn't have been any better. Very firm and fast. Cant wait to see what this place is like peak season! The Cannon grill is a great place to grab food during/after the round. I will definitely be back!

From the man who greeted me to the desk check in, to the on course personnel, this course is top notch. The greens were a little tricky because they were aerated resently, the fairways let the ball run but you could take the divot to stop approach shots. This course really messes with you concentration because the scenery is so beautiful you are looking at all the beauty and forget to think about the shot. All in all I had a very ENJOYABLE DAY with a VERY NICE RESIDENT WHO SHOWED ME HOW TO PLAY THE COURSE !!

I got this as a Hot Deal and it was a great value. The course is starting to show wear and tear from frequent play near the end of the season. I loved the layout. I was not aware that the course was surrounded by homes, this takes away from the beauty of the course. You do have to deal with the noises coming from the residences, dog barking, construction work and etc. With all that being said, I would play it again!!

This is the second time I have played this course and it was excellent the first time so I had high expectations for this round and was left a little deflated. We have had a rough summer with high heat and it showed in the course condition as the fairways were burned out and stressed. It had also rained over the past 4 days and the grass was not able to be cut as it normally would. The bunkers showed the results of the weather as well. The greens were slower than what I remember also. The course definitely was not in the condition to charge the normal rate of $120 but since I was able to pay a reduced rate the condition was acceptable. Pace of play was excellent until the last 4 hole in which we were backed up 2 groups deep on the tee boxes. Not sure what caused the slow down all of a sudden but there was no ranger on the course all day.

The staff was extremely pleasant and helpful as you would expect from a high level facility as this. All in all it was a nice day and an enjoyable round of golf for the fee I paid. I would definitely check the course condition before returning and paying the full fee.

All in all very nice course enjoyed playing it up until the 8th hole that's when the pace of play slowed dramatically A Marshall or someone riding around checking on the pace of play would of been very helpfully. But that was the only negative experience that I had.

We were visiting from out of town and played with friends from the area who knew the course. We were greeted promptly by the staff and checked in and sent on our way very efficiently. Range was OK, but used mats. Large practice green. Course itself is treelined with lots of elevation changes. Very scenic along Lake Manassas. We ate in the grill after the round and the food was good with good service.

This was my first time playing Stonewall and I had a great time. Green fee includes practice range balls and there is a good gps system in the cart. I played with 2 members who guided me with a few tips especially on the holes with blind shots. Course is beautiful and moderately challenging. There are a lot of holes with water, woods or out of bounds coming into play so I did loose a few balls but I enjoyed the challenge. An interesting course I would definitely recommend and plan to play again.
