I have played this course when it was terrific but that is no longer the case. All of the greens need major repair. Their site states they have four temporary greens but all are horrible. None of the greens or even the cart paths had been cleaned in what appeared to be a long long time. Do not waste your money on what you think is a bargain, you can't even by a soda at the club house.

Stonehouse in the Poor House

Played this course for the first time and came away from it feeling...sad I guess. The course is not being maintained whatsoever: 1.they lost their greens this year, so brutal shape. 2. fairways and ruff are overgrown 3. most disturbingly, there are huge holes in the middle of the fairways, 3 feet in diameter, 5 feet deep some of them, around the drainage system. Unbelievable. Its a real shame as you can see this was a premium course when it first opened. Very interesting layout, but a couple of the holes were maybe a little excessive in difficulty; one par 4 in particular on the back where after your uphill drive, you have to make a 200 yard laser shot down into a very narrow ravine. But we pretty much had the course to ourselves, so pace of play was great. The clubhouse is beautiful, but since nobody was playing, the restaurant was closed, and it was a Sunday. The owner owns two other courses in the area, so looks like he's maybe spread a little thin, or is putting his money in the other 2 and using this one as a tax writeoff. It would be nice if somebody with lotsa money bought the place and restored it to its former glory. Despite the brutal shape, I did actually like the course, and for $25, I would play it again; but would not pay the regular $89 for the shape its in.

BEWARE

OMG!!!

I usually enjoy our golf adventures and seldom write a review, but this course is

an exception.

They had 5 temporary greens because the irrigation system had failed and

they lost their greens. This I understand, but what I didn't understand was the

erosion in the middle of the fairways and the total disregard of general

maintenance.

The people I feel most sorry for are the residents with homes on the fairways

that to me will be totally devalued in another year.

To me I overpaid even using a 'hot deal'.

Skunk

Website says they had a rough summer and the greens were bad with a couple of temp greens. The whole course is not being maintained at all. Sandtraps are a disaster, fairways not being mowed and I couldn't even find the tee boxes on several holes.

Awful maintenance

Such a shame, this course used to be sooo beautiful and now the management has let this course go completely. The greens were horrible, burnt up with weeds growing put of them everywhere like a under funded public course. Pace of play was great because literally no one else was there. Now I see why, such a shame. This course could be amazing again but no one will play it in the shape it is in.
