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.

We make the 45 minute drive to stonegate at least 2-3 times a year.My wife and I love the layout of this course,it is always well groomed and fair to the ladies.We showed up a bit early for our tee timeand a large outing was just finishing play and headed in for their lunch,and the gentleman in the clubhouse told us just to roll on out when we were ready,as no one else was on the course at that time.The greens rolled nice,fairways were clean,and the people that work there always make you feel welcome.Nice job!

One of my favorite courses with challenges that require every club in your bag to be used.

Great pro and staff to make sure you have a great round.

Greens are a challenge....

We played on a record breaking hot day in September...but the shade of the trees made life tolerable.....and a good round!

Stonegate has a long flowing layout making it feel like each hole is secluded from others.

The staff is very friendly, prompt, and ready to make it a great experience.

There are plenty of options on the menu and the chef does a fantastic job preparing the meal.

This is a must play course!

They charge too much to play this $20 golf course. Average course layout but could be in better condition, divots weren't replaced, sand traps weren't raked, and a lot of ball marks on the greens. Some of the holes were laid out poorly and should be changed to make it more playable. Probably will not be returning to play it again even though I live very close to it.

Excellent restaurant/bar staff and service. Have been playing the course since in opened. Great layout. Just wish the course was kept up. 99% of the time you end up in a trap it hasn't been raked in weeks. Weeds growing out of some of them. Tee boxes and fairways look great. Greens are in the worst shape I have ever seen them. Too many ball marks all over that never get fixed due to overplay and the clientele of golfers has declined so they honestly don't have a clue on what a ball mark repair tool is. Very inconsistent roll due to this and they are much slower than they used to be.

Hello Jeffrey, thank you for taking the time to review our course, Stonegate Golf Club, and for the 3-stars. We are sorry to hear that parts of the course, specifically the greens and the bunkers, were in poor shape when you played. Your feedback is greatly appreciated. It sounds like you still enjoyed the course layout and it looks like you had a friendly experience with our staff, so we are glad to see that. Thank you for your loyalty to our course, in the Grand Rapids area, and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

Stonegate is a beutiful course...well maintained, friendly staff, one of the best pros in golf (Ty Love), and excellent food and drink at the clubhouse.

I would just like to see more special events like Sr scrambles and Ryder Cup format outings.

Stonegate Golf Club is in beautiful condition. For the price you pay this course is really worth the money. There is a serious lack of mid-level courses that actually hold value. The Golf Pro on site, Ty is extremely friendly and makes you feel right at home. I would recommend this course for anybody looking for a well paced round at a well kept challenging golf course in West Michigan.
