Course layout

The course was modified which changed #7 to a par 3 and I believe #18 to a short par 5. I would like to see # 7 changed back to it’s original par four, keeping 18 as a par 5 because it’s a great finishing hole. Even though this would create a total par of 73, I believe it would help keep the original character of the course.

Best Course in Muskegon Area

Course is in phenomenal condition! Pro and all of the staff are top notch professionals. Great place to hold an outing. The staff literally does everything for you from setting up the signs to the restaurant staff.

Worth the drive ...

Nice course that is kept in great shape year round.

Challenging layout with only one hole that just doesn't fit, for me, #10 being a short par 4 that seems to have been wedged into place. Huge sloping (to the left) fairway with a severely elevated green guarded by bunkers down below.

Greens, tees, fairways and rough were all in great shape when I played, and most bunkers were decent with a few needing attention. Course was empty (weekday-mid morning) and I played solo in just over 2 hours 10 minutes, playing through one foursome of local members on Hole #6.

Although built in a sub-division with homes on some holes, the course has a good 'Northern Michigan' feel to the layout. A bit of a drive to get to, but worth the trip.

Great track

Nice modern layout. Greens rolled very nicely, not overly fast. Well groomed course from tee to green. Nice bunkers with consistent sand throughout.

A hidden gem.

Only issue was with all of the bugs, not sure if they spray for insects but bugs were very thick, even with bug spray several shots were less than perfect due to getting surrounded by mosquitoes, mayflies, and nats.

Would be a very cool course to play in the fall with all of the hardwoods that surround the course.

Great Course

If I lived closer to this course, I would join it in a New York minute. The course was in excellent condition for this time of year. I love the layout. It gives you a little bit of everything. Elevation, hazards etc. it is very playable but can eat your lunch if you get too cocky.
When talking to friends, this course always comes up as one of the top recommendations. I would call it a nine on a 1-10 scale.

Great value

Went to the course and ate lunch before playing. Food was good and staff very friendly. I spoke briefly with the pro shop staff. He allowed us to start early. He described the course to help us enjoy our round. It was good to hear someone so enthusiastic about their course. The holes wind through trees but has fair landing areas. Greens were smooth and rolled true. Bring mosquito repellent as they were out if you got close to the woods.

Stonegate

This course challenges you on most holes, the tee box’s need some attention seems as though the crabgrass. Is having it way in some places. Always a good place for lunch after playing.

Buzz Kill

I am apaulled to have had to pay $57 to golf at $25 value golf course. I had an early tee time and the Bar was closed, and I couldn’t even enjoy a Bloody Mary for my round. What golf course offers such poor hospitality while charging a Country Club Rate. Last year when I played with my Grand Rapids friends we were able to enjoy a Bloody Mary and some Buds to take on the course, the Golf Pros made sure we were stocked and ready to go; this year we couldn’t even purchase a water- what a joke. When the bar FINALLY opened the older black haired bar keep wouldn’t even turn around to wait on my friends and I and she was speaking negatively about the staff in the Pro Shop, very unprofessional comments. All of the tee boxes were brown/diseased, the course in horrible shape and I fixed 3-5 ball marks on each green. They should’ve paid me to play. I will never be back, such a poorly managed course and a disappointment as it definitely has great potential. What happened to last years staff? They seemed to have it together.

Hope to play again

Beautiful well maintained in all respects.
Course is challenging for all golfers.
Lots of trees as it is in a forrested area.
Lost a few balls and four a few.
The course is an hour drive for us or we would play it more frequently.

One of my favorites

Stonegate is definitely one of my favorite places to play and enjoy the clubhouse bar & grill. Great food and drink choices. Awesome atmosphere and friendly service! Have not been disappointed yet, and have played at least once or twice a year for the past 3 years. Bought a great Stonegate shirt in the pro shop this year. Spreading the word to my friends that Stonegate is a definite golf course to put on their schedule when planning their next golfing trip.
