Stumpy Lake Golf Course
Stumpy Lake Golf Course is a Robert Trent Jones design that provides a unique golfing experience. This scenic layout is routed across a 1,400-acre nature preserve that is absent of any commercial or residential development for miles. The golf course wraps around its namesake lake, which has a canoe and kayak launch as well as a fishing pier. Deer, fox, and eagles are frequently seen on the course and there has even been the occasional bear sighting. Water has a prominent presence throughout and there are also several strategically placed bunkers. Stumpy Lake Golf Course is a layout that will force you to be creative with your shot making but it's still approachable enough for high handicappers to tackle with confidence. If you're looking to get in even more golf, sister club Honey Bee is located almost right next door.

Bring a drill for the tee boxes
We booked a 2-some and were supposed to be paired up with another 2, but ended up getting a really excellent golfer who had already played the back 9. After 1-9 he left and we were behind another 2-some with a 2-some on our tail. Good course management would have put us together but we were happy to play on. The tee boxes are basically solid concrete. It is next to impossible to get a tee in the ground easily, and I often broke them setting up. That being said, the people were great, helpful and courteous. The overall course was clean, and well maintained. Would be happy to play there again.
course was in pretty good shape
It has improved over the last couple of weeks. It could be better if people would fix their ball marks on the greens.
Off to a slow start
My 7 year old daughter and I had a tee time at 6am. After traveling in from NC and arriving late I failed to set an alarm. We arrived at the course at 6:30am and they squeezed us in to an already tight schedule. The course was great, staff was super friendly, and the cart was plush. I’ll definitely come come next time we visit.
Great course overall
Great time with family and friends. Will be back soon.
Extremely Slow Pace of Play
Poorly managed course where they overbook, last two times there, at least four groups waiting on 1st teen box. Don’t bother playing here unless you want a 5 1/2 hour pace of play
4 hackers played in under 4 hours. Fairways and tee boxes above average. Greens true, could have been a little quicker. Had a very enjoyable round
I love Stumpy Lake
If Stumpy Lake was a type of food, I would eat it everyday.
Do Not Play!!
If it has rained in the past week or 10 days don’t even consider this course. There is a reason it is named stumpy lake - there is a lake in every fairway. It is borderline unplayable with how wet it is. I understand a lack of drainage but in the hundreds of rounds of golf I have played I’ve never seen something this muddy and wet.
The overall layout is very gimmicky and not very fun. The only redeeming factor is that the river near by is pretty.
Winter Golf - Sunny Day
THe course was in good shape considering the time of Year, early March. The greens were in great shape, good speed and smooth. The layout is straight forward, no surprises. Truly like the length and par 5’s were challenging with water placed at strategic places. Overall a great day, enjoyable round.
Coming from where I live in Carolina, this course is flat; but it does add in some sharp doglegs, which adds a challenge. It’s very walkable, which I like, and if your tee shot wanders off the fairway, you won’t find yourself in too much trouble. The greens were well maintained and firm. Everyone I encountered here was friendly, and I would definitely come back here in the future.
Cancellation/ overbooking issue
I booked a hot deal for Monday at 9:08am and after driving 45min plus to golf with a colleague of mine, I was told I couldn’t golf at the time that was reserved and purchased. They asked if I received an email and I told the cashier that no email was sent to me regarding issues of this location overbooking tee times. The response I received was “call Golfnow”. I arrived early and showed the staff member I was charged and no emails were sent and nothing was done for me. It was even more frustrating that after talking to the cashier I randomly received my cancellation email 2 minutes after my tee time. Extremely frustrated with how this was handled and I felt like there was no help given on resolving this issue for myself and my guest. Poor management and communication with a third party shouldn’t result in an inconvenience for your guests.
Floods and golf don't mix.
Well I played the course even though the fairways were under water. But I hung with friends and that's all that matters.
Great views, fun course. Gets soggy but drains well. Very friendly staff.
Love to play here.
Decent course conditions today. Fairways were ok with some bare hardpan spots in the center. Greens were very fast and it was difficult to get a ball to check and sit, most rolled out much farther than expected. Just about anywhere you hit it off the tee you could somewhat find your way out of trouble. Friendly staff. I'll go back again if I can find another good deal on a round.
Good course, holds water fairly well. It rained the night before, few puddles here and there but nothing unplayable. Nice wide fairways but fast greens. Would go again
