I love this course, it plays long , it’s fair and challenging. Unfortunately the conditions are not good at the moment. Greens are shaggy and fairways are bare. I hope it springs into shape soin because it would be a shame to let such a nice course go bad. Fingers crossed!

Overall the course was in decent shape. The only area that seems to need some work is the areas around the green, a bit of clumps and rough areas to hit from. May have had something to do with the some excessive rains. All in all, I look forward to playing there again in a couple weeks!!

Several months ago this course was in prime playing condition. It was not on June 10th. I won't be back until I hear that all of the bare spots are resolved.

It is a great course to play if in good condition. Hopefully they will get it back to where it was several months ago.

The Greens are usually one of the best in Orlando, however they were just aerified and topdressed with sand (understandable). The fairways were spotty and looked like they were overcoming some winter/heat stress, but we played "Winter rules" and placed the ball in the nearest grassy spot. Also noticed they've removed a lot of their bunkers which was a shock to me. I thought the bunkers added character to the course, especially from the tee box. Still enjoyed my round and was able to play in less than 3.5 hours on a holiday!

getting better.... punched the greens and some approach areas.....but didn't sand enough. with more water should be in good shape in few weeks. Some approach areas to greens need work. Made course much easier with removal of bunkers but still not top notch track like it used to be. Average, bar/restaurant closes at 5pm sharp (cart-girl in earlier)....so afternoon rounds don't have many options for drinks and such.

played there after reading many reviews and especially liked the comments regarding the greens being good and rolling true, since many courses around here the greens have taken a hit this year. Problem was they had recently been aerated and top dressed so had to just play two putt rule since they were so bad. Liked the layout and will give it another try in a few weeks.

They warned me they had aerated the course but I thought they and done it before this year so how bad could it be? Well, it was REALLY BAD. Nickel sized holes in every green, some filled with sand and some not filled. Sand that had been brushed off the greens was left around the greens in the fringe making approaches very difficult. They should have discounted the greens fees just for how bad the course was. I'll be back but not for at least two weeks due to the bad job they did.

Paid for 18 holes & was told by the kid in the pro shop that tees had been punched which is no big deal. However he failed to mention that the greens had been punched & sanded. Again no big deal. The kicker is that after 9 holes & making the turn there are at least 6 groups on the 10th tee box. I go to the pro shop to ask what was going on & the answer I recieved was that's our 5 pm league doing a shot gun start. He explained to me that he mentioned this to me before my companions and I teed off. When he clearly did not & if he had I would have gone elsewhere. I did get my money back for nice holes back. But this kid's customer service skills absolutely sucked. I've played here many times & I felt that it was rude not to mention the course conditions & league play before I paid for my round!

Every time we are on vacation we play Stoneybrook and what a great course it is

We had a bad expierience with the starter who was not at his place as we pulled up to the first tee, but were yelled back once the starter was at his position

Start yelling to us altough he was not at his place, but beside this expierence the course was great and the greens fabulous, come again for sure (hopefully a different starter)

As a professional tennis coach and trainer, iI worked at Stonybrook West for four years. Never ever playing this course I found it delightful. The water never really challenge me but being aware if the hidden points helps avoid the hazard. I wish I had played the course before the reduced sand traps but I honestly think I did not change the course dynamic. All in all a great course. To play. My opinion is play the blues once and the tackle the black tee box. Without doing this you may never fully appreciate the lengthy beauty if this course.

This was our first time playing this course and we were not disappointed.

The staff were very friendly on arrival. The starter went to great lengths to give us advice on how to play certain holes.

In one or two places the fairways were a little wet, but given the recent rain they played well. The greens were superb. Very true and flat a real pleasure to putt on.

The holes were a good challenge with a nice variety of different challenges.

A very good day and it will now be added to our regular courses we play when in Orlando.

This course has had good times and bad. This is again, a really good time! Go play.

The greens are excellent. Mid-afternoon and they still rolled around 8.5-9.0. Rolled very smoothly. Fairways are in vg shape and for a dry Winter and early Spring drought, the parts of the course which need to be green, are just that.

I was lucky because people thought it was going to rain, but it not only never did, but the sun came out several times, but it only took me 2 hr and 15 minutes to play!!!!

Pro Shop guy was really nice got me out quickly as there was a foursome getting ready to go, he suggested I get out there and tee off. Did that and never saw another human the rest of the round.

T he pace also led to me posting one of the lowest scores of the year for me. LIKE THAT.

Go play and support these guys. They have spent money. Look as if they will continue to and the course should be back on "Need to play" list.

Thanx
