Even though they aerated only a few days before the greens were well above average. They are doing a lot of work on the bunkers but it didn't both play, and they had warned us about that before we teed off.

Fairways are good, Grass around the greens was a little long.

The course had a green condition warning due to airation. So greens where rough but that was expected. The bunkers where also under repair with many unplayable due to turf replacement and sand fill piles. With that said there course was not busy allowing for multi ball play. For the price a great tune up course that will only get better as we move into summer.

Course had recently been aerated, so greens were jumpy and slow. Lots of the bunkers were under re-hab and lots of new sod around greens. Standing water on some greens due to irrigation leak of some sort. Otherwise, was able to get out early and play quickly. Good layout and plays long even from the blues. Eager to go back when course in better condition.

Course is pretty good generally. I can believe you'll find worse at this price level. They've looked after it in the drought and it's not half bad. We'll most likely be heading back after we've tried a couple more places. Greens are aerated at the moment but it didn't bother us. Didn't see any staff so can't comment. The bar was closed for mother's day.

I knew going in that the course had been aerated however they are doing a lot of work on their sandtraps. It looks as if they are eliminating a good number of them however the traps that are in transition are big holes of dirt. One hole even has a piece of machinery in the middle of the fairway. Give this place a few months then try it out. Not worth the cost right now

If you can get a group of 3 others n just want a fun casual hit with a bit of fun this is the course. Greens were very fury which means very minimal turning on the greens. Slow Good greens for mid handicap golfers to hit hard straight line to hole. There are a lot of rough unmown areas in some fairways. But I do like the layout. Food drinks cart had minimal selection and only made it around 2 times. I wouldn't pay more than $30 - $35. Anything more would be disappointing.

New owners are spending a lot of cash to get this course back in shape. Greens are excellent and the repairs to the collars have grown in and in good shape. Many of the sand traps have been removed or downsized, maybe more then they should have, which makes the course easier but has speeded up play. That is still a work in progress. Some fairways need some work in spots, I'm sure that will be addressed. Layout is good, right now I would give it a 6 out of 10, but improving. A big plus, tee times are spaced 10 minutes apart rather then 8, keeps the flow moving a little better.

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.

Sorry, but I have played here for years, and while the course was in bad shape the new owners are doing all the right things. This course is NOT in terrible shape. There are a few areas that need some work, and that is being addressed, but by no means is it terrible.

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.
