Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

Tee to green the course was in great shape but I have never seen the fringes of greens in worse shape. I would rather they just burn the clumps of weeds and leave it dirt. At least it would be predictable. It's a small part of the course but makes a big, not so great impression. Greens were average thanks to a clear lack of ball-mark fixing by players.

Horrendous

DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY PAYING FOR THIS ABSURDLY OVERPRICED GOLF COURSE. AT BEST, THIS IS A $30-$35 GOLF COURSE. On a scale of 1-5, the greens, tee boxes, fairways and rough are a 2. The sand traps/bunkers are a minus 1. Have no idea when the bunkers had any work done on them and looks like they have at least 6 months or more of weeds that have been growing in them. PATHETIC, ABSOLUTELY PATHETIC. BIGGEST WASTE OF MONEY I’VE EVER SPENT PLAYING GOLF.

Amazing course in the mountains setting.

I enjoyed this round with my brother in law while on vacation in the blue ridge mountains. Just stunning views and the course was imaculant.

Always a Treat!

Played all 3 nines today and would definitely give the nod to Monocan & Tuckahoe as the two in the best condition out of the 3. It’s always a treat playing StoneyCreek!

Shamokin Needs Some TLC

I've always loved played here and normally it's in great shape and a good value. The 27-hole course is divided into three courses, and they all play very differently. But the conditions are not consistent and that's an issue for the price being charged.

Tuckahoe 9 is in great shape, with freshly cut zoysia grass fairways and rough and well-kept bunkers. But the same can't be said about the Shamokin 9 with its Bermuda grass and weed-infested bunkers. It's a little embarrassing for a course charging over $60 for a round, you would expect better conditions on that nine, even with the restrictions from this crazy year. The lack of maintenance extended to the practice areas as well and it's not a great look for a course that normally has some of the best conditions around.

Subpar conditions aside, the rest of the round went well once be passed the 4-some in front of us that was on pace for a 5.5 hour round (they were nice about it). The mountain setting makes up for a lot and the staff is pretty friendly.

The restaurant was still closed for COVID so I can't offer an opinion on the food here. Come for the views and elevated tees, but maybe don't pay the full rack rate until conditions improve a bit.

Overpriced

Greens fee is too high, even using hot deal. Course should be in much better condition considering the fees that they charge. All grass areas are less than expected.

Bermuda on fairways not out yet

Course was good but was disappointing the on many of the holes on the Shamokin 9 holes the fairways had no grass and were hitting balls off bare ground.

Beautiful Valley Course

Beautiful course. Still dormant and greens had recently been aeriated, yet quite a pleasure to play. Greens were surprisingly accepting and quick. Pleasant variety of hole layouts with ample risk/reward opportunities with some awesome scenery.

My only issue was not with the course but with the price. GolfNow price was $39. When I arrived at the course they wanted to charge $69. After a little haggling I paid $49. A good value at $49, but this is the first time I have used GolfNow and the course asked for a different rate.

If you use golfnow all fees are prepaid online,how could the course try and charge you $69 ? If you pay online your green fees are paid!

In Great Shape Despite The Weather

I was surprised to find this course was even open in the middle of February but I hot a GolfNow Hot Deal for the middle of the day with perfect weather (for once) and had the whole course to myself for the first 16 holes until I caught up to two foursomes.

Conditions were very impressive, of course the Bermuda fairways are dormant, the ground itself had drained quite a bit from the heavy rains and snow the week before. There was no standing water anywhere and only a couple small soggy spots. To put that in perspective, this was the driest conditions I had played on in several months. The greens were also in excellent shape, with very little signs of winter traffic.

The staff was friendly as usual and I was fortunate enough to get to play the Tuckahoe nine, everyone’s favorite here. The complimentary dry towels provided in my cart came in handy with keeping my clubs clean.

I will continue to sing the praises of this course until you all start playing here, you’re really missing out on a gem!

Needs help

I have always been a big fan of Stoney Creek at Wintergreen but the Monakin 9 was in really bad shape. It had obviously been underwater and the fairways had little if any grass. They should be playing this 9. It is a 27 hole layout so they should let this 9 heal. Always love this course but it was in really bad shape. As is should not cost more then $30/round

Best Mountain Golf in VA for Under $100

*This review is for Tuckahoe and Monocan courses. I did not encounter any of the poor conditions mentioned by other recent reviews. I'm not sure if the course has since recovered or if those conditions were specific only to the Shamokin course.*

Along with Rock Harbor GC way up in Winchester, Stoney Creek at Wintergreen Resort is the most-underrated golf course in Virginia. Sure, you can spend $100-225 on high-end mountain resort golf at places like Omni or Primland, but at Wintergreen you can get 18 holes for $44 and have nearly as good an experience.

This is one of my all-time favorite designs and I think one of Rees Jones’ best courses, especially the Tuckahoe nine that opens with a towering tee shot down to a majesty hole with a great view. The character of Tuckahoe, Monocan, and Shamokin are all very different and unique and make for a fun play no matter what combination you get (make sure you get to play Tuckahoe).

Conditions here are top notch and even with the wet weather the course played very well with no bare spots or overly soggy spots, clean bunkers, smooth greens and well-maintained rough. One major exception is some of the green surrounds on Monocan which have been sodded and are still on the mend, but it’s manageable and doesn’t take away from the experience.

The mountain views are not to be overlooked, you really get more out of your round than a chance at some rewarding golf.

Facilities here are top notch with a grass driving range and free range balls, plus separate putting and pitching/chipping greens. The staff is also great and pace of play is very good.

The value here is good too if you pick the right day and get their afternoon special of just $44. That’s a remarkable value considering the costs at nearby places like Birdwood.

If you haven’t played here before, PLEASE go play. It’s a great course and it deserves a greatly reputation!
