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.

Course has weeds growing eveywhere and the bunkers where under construction. I wasn't told nor was there an advisory before booking that these issues were in effect. Don't waste your time or money on this course.

I paid $40 for this course in Orlando during March. My expectations were low but I was pleasantly surprised. The greens were faster than they looked and had a ton of subtle slope. The fairways were generally good but the 7th (if I remember correctly) looked like it was some water damage.

Great:

A couple of really tough holes (7 15, and 17 most notably).

Really liked the par - 3s - variety of distance and difficulty

Price

Challenges:

the range was limited. - which I could handle but the balls were "used" and half of them were playable.

They are doing some bunker work - removing lots of bunkers to make it easier.

Overall - typical Florida course with all the water and houses. I didn't want to spend $100+ for the round so it was a good value. Could have played the Disney Courses or Orange National - but just wanted to get out. Better than the $40 I spent and enjoyed the lay out

I wish I could give it a 3.5 because it was better than expected for the price; but when compared to Disney or the other great tracks near Windermere, it Is a tier below. Again - but still a great value for someone who just wants to play golf - and avoid the mop and circumstance of a top tier, expensive course.

First time playing this course.

Our opinion:

No starter, no ranger, pace was a bit slow. Fairways were in extremely poor condition, some couldn't even reasonably be called fairways. Many bunkers were under repair. Greens were in decent condition. We were told by some other players that the course is under renovation and will be better by the end of 2018. If we'd known that, we wouldn't have played this year. I don't think it's worth the time or cost of gas to go there even if the greens fees were zero.

It's obvious they are doing some renovation to some bunkers and such but I have played this course for three years and this is the worst I have ever seen this course. No consistency from bunker to bunker, the turf is very spotty. Unfortunately I brought two guys here for the first time, I apologised many times through the 4hr 45 min round.

I have played here more times than I can count. I could not believe how much the course conditions have improved since I played in December. The greens were in the best shape I have ever seen. The fairways need a little work but it's refreshing to see this course improving it's overall experience. I would highly recommend playing this course.

Fairways are a mess. Weeds, dead grass.

Bunkers need work.

Worst thing the course really smells. Not sure what the smell was but nearest guess would be moldy wet socks.

The course could be great but it has been in this condition for over a year.

Try again next year.

I am a single digit HDCP golfer and enjoy playing new courses. This layout is very challenging, with fairway bunkers and gratitude bunkers.

Fairways have some bare spots.

If 10 represents excellent greens, i would rate these at 8. They are very nice.

Overall.... I recommend it.

There is always a way to get a good price at Stoneybrook West. Pace of play is however, always a concern. A course marshall who requests ready-golf for all groups would really help. It was nice to see that a few traps had been filled in to speed up play. It would also be nice to have had a set of tee blocks that could accommodate golfers who can't reach those 375 - 400 yard par 4's in 2. Nice to see green fairways and greens. Good luck with the course repairs.

I liked the layout. The bunkers are undergoing renovations, so the area around them were in need of attention. Many bunkers were being removed, made smaller, etc. Probably a pace of play issue. Fairways were bumpy, but early March and Bermuda has not grown. No rain also made for dry conditions. Greens were good. I will play again.
