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.

Unfortunately the greens were not cared for. The course is beautiful but every green was punched and filled with sand. Played 2 weeks earlier and they closed the front 9 for this purpose. Greens still haven’t bounced back and made for a miserable day of putting. Love this course just wish I played a few weeks later.

Everything was perfect! The front 9 was a little slow but the 2nd was paced perfectly. Everyone is friendly from the staff to the other players. The course is recovering from a tough summer, we really enjoy it.

very weird experience, checked in and given a cart key, but no carts available. Course was in decent shape,however overbooked and pace of play not enforced at all, we stood on the tee box for almost 15 minutes on multiple holes,fairways were pretty nice, course layout is fun. greens need help. quietness and wildlife a plus, being told they were locking the gate in 5 minutes when we were on the 16th hole with a group in front and multiple groups behind us when there was still another 35 minutes of light left was ridiculous. desire to return to this course is low.

The greens need a lot of work. To many dry ground, it's like an obstacle course when putting. Fairways are in good condition. Still couldn't understand why the humongous hole at the 10th.

The fairways were in pretty good shape, but the greens were in a terrible condition. Lots of bare spots and grass was better on fairways than the greens. Also, the course was pretty soggy with moderate amount of rain the previous day. It made for muddy conditions.

It is not good when the fairways are in much better shape than the greens. Not just from arreation, more bare dirt than a garden plot.
