I have played a lot of golf at Stoneybrook West however, this was the first time I have played it since the bunker renovations. I must say, those renovations make a BIG difference. The changes makes the course a lot more fun without all the bunkers. I shot my best score this year mostly because I was driving the ball straight without having to navigate bunker in the middle of the fairway. There are some fairway issues on a few holes but, in all I really enjoyed my round. By the way, the greens are top notch....very true and playable.

Saturday morning round. Course was in terrible shape. Half of the front 9 was under repair. Most of the traps are being removed from the course. SMH Hard to believe what they are charging for such an ugly track.

I suggested playing this course to my regular playing partners because I had experienced it once before (about a year ago) and really enjoyed it. This time, I was really disappointed to see how it had deteriorated in such a short time. While the greens were in good shape and the fairways in fair shape, the overall appearance looked like it hadn't been paid any attention in a LONG time. Same with an alarming amount of the homes which looked abandoned. I hope the course can be cleaned up, manicured and restored.

Beautiful day for a round of golf. Greens rolled true with a little pace. It looks like the course is undergoing some re-shaping. Many bunkers (of with there are many many more!) are being filled in & made into 'grass bunkers'... this should make the course a little easier to play.

Only issue was the maintenance going on with some bunkers on the front nine.

Full disclosure requires I admit that I am a fan of Art Hills who designed this course. I have played a number of his tracks in several states and find them to be consistently interesting, very fair, and accommodating to players of all skill levels. Stoneybrook West is no different. However, the course is undergoing some renovations which apparently will reduce the number and size of various bunkers. As a result, I think the course will be easier than originally designed but also less interesting. Even so, it is and will be a fun course to play, especially if they can solve the conditioning issues. Currently, the course has a fairly significant weed problem and a number of dry, brown areas in the fairways although the greens are in good shape after being recently verticut (probably a week to ten days ago). They aren't very fast but they do roll true. Overall, Stoneybrook West is a nice challenge and a very good value for the $30 fee that I paid through Golfnow. I hope to get back and play it agin before I head north in a few weeks.

The course is in the process of going through some renovations. They have removed several bunkers around the course and they have fresh sod on them. The greens rolled pretty quick. The only quib I have was bare spots in some fairways and in the rough. If these things can be turned around, it will be a great place to play. The price is indicative of these few blemishes and it was definitely worth what we paid. I would recommend checking this course out, especially if you haven't played here before.

3rd time to play this winter and found conditions poorest yet. Many traps being converted to grass which may be good in the long run but not now.Fairway grass uncut today and big clumps of various grasses affected swing plane.Greens OK. This course has a lot of potential so hope they can get their act together before they go under because even at $30 there are better values out there.

They are putting a lot of work into the course and it's looking very promising. Greens were in good shape and rolled well. The changes they are making to the rest of the course are excellent.

since we played here. Last year sometime but, the course was in perfect shape. They are doing some makeovers - bunkers are being made smaller, sodding some up, making some smaller. The fairways - some were okay some were "clusters" of grass, dry spots. Some of the greens had dry spots. Hopefully, they'll get the course back to where is was when we first moved down here - 2 years ago!! We always liked this course.
