Tee boxes were very hard/dry. Greens were hard to putt with dry/burned out areas. New golf carts were excellent with GPS onboard.
The course has great potential BUT
Course has a great layout. I also liked the GPS on the golf cart. However, the condition of the course was horrible. No grass on either the tee boxes or the greens. While putting your ball would roll over a weed and change directions. Tried to play rule that if in fairway you could move to a grassy spot but sometimes there was none nearby
Off Course Amenities
The club house, course, carts, and pace were great. The course itself simply wasn’t in good shape. Weather hasn’t been great in the area, I’m sure that’s a factor. Carts had GPS and the clubhouse looked newly renovated. I’d say they are working to improve!

Staff are working hard to get the course back to form, but have a long way to go. Off course amenities and staff are great.
Plus and Minus
I took my son with me to this course for the first time on 7/16. We both enjoyed the round. Here are the plus/minus experiences of the course:
1) Nice, long fairway views. The course has some good scenic holes.
2) Greens were in nice shape. They play slow, but they were all consistent. I enjoyed making the putting adjustment to the faster greens we normally play on.
3) Extra features of the cart, such as GPS, electronic scoring, etc.
4) Not a ton of hazards. I play maybe once a week, so the less hazards the better!
1) Tee box area ground was so hard that I could barely get a tee placed in them.
2) Tough to tell the fairway grass from the rough in a lot of areas. Mowing could be improved a little.
3) As has been stated before by others, drainage in certain areas of the course is poor. Some areas were extremely soggy, even though it had not rained when we had played
I would recommend playing, with a caveat: if you are getting a good price on the round. I could not recommend if you are paying over $25, though. It was fun for our first time, but if you are paying more for a round, some may be disappointed with the value perceived.
Course is under new management and they are making major changes. Remodeling club house, Redoing sand traps and new carts with GPS.
Good Scenery Poor Conditions
Great spot to take beginning golfer. Layout has potential. Obvious this course has been closed or neglected. New owners showing signs of trying to improve. So dry and hard. No fairways. Pretty clear zero irrigation system. Basically all weeds with 60-70 % dye out on fairways. Greens airrated and every green was at least half dirt/sand and dead grass.
New Carts with GPS helped because it’s hard to know what is a fairway and what is out of bounds.
$30 a bit much for a course in such poor condition. They should tell you that when you check in. Layout could be really pretty. Great views. Peaceful. New owner has a lot of work ahead of them. I would go back if conditions improve. If they were smart they’d give you some kind of coupon to come back at a later date.... unfortunate conditions today.
I have played this course several times over the years but this year the course was in the best shape by far. Most of the greens were very good but best of all, most of the geese are gone. In the past you have had to step around goose poo on many of the holes but this year, it has decreased by a lot. And the club house and restrooms have been redone. Technology on the carts showing yardage to hole and electronic scorecard. Very cool. Great job, new owner!
The course is in good condition the greens are slow and soft.
Great day at the course
I shot my best round of golf this year at this course. This is a nice course to play when teaching someone just learning the game. All the staff there are very friendly and make a person feel welcome there.
Word of caution watch the weather closely for the area if there was any amount of substantial rain within the past couple days the course does not drain well at all.
Day for Golf
The course is in poor shape the fairways have a lot of bare spot and are in need of reseeding and the greens slow.
Honestly was a great course and had a amazing staff. The back 9 is particularly great. Had a great time on the course and will definitely be back!
My favorite place to play
Staff is very friendly and will help in anyway ... the course condition has its ups and downs with the weather but the layout of the coarse is the best part... play here 10-15 times a year one of my favorite courses... if you get a chance follow on Facebook and watch for the cross country tournament this year very challenging and a good time
I played Standing Stone on a hot deal off the golf now app for $14. For the price, you really can't beat it but if you are looking for a really nice course, this probably isn't for you. The fairways and the tee boxes were not manicured the way you would expect but for an amateur golf it really didn't bother me. The course is wide open, not many trees or hazards making it fairly easy to recover if you don't hit a straight shot. I would play here again.
The Course is in fair condition the fairways and tee boxes need to be better taking care of.
3rd time out
Do to the amount of rain the course is wet and plays longer but still had a good round golf. We played a few hole with a couple from Todd,pa. that said they would be back.
