Excellent Mountain Course

Course in great shape with spectacular views.

Greens very tricky to read but rolled true.

A bit pricy but worth it.

Great Moutain Course

Amazing layout with great views of the lake. 2 amazing par 3s on the back half. The greens rolled nice. Hard course to score on without having played it before and knowing the greens. The large undulating greens puts a premium on being in the right spots.

A must play if you are within 50 miles

Great all the way around. From the friendly staff to the amazing course. The layout could be the best I’ve played. A little pricey for most but you get what you pay for. It is well worth it. Bring your own water though, they give a bottle in your cart but none on the course. I will be back.

Nice mountain course with great views

I heard a lot of good things about this course before I played here including it was the second best public course in Maryland. That being said, it was a very nice course, but the conditions did not quite live up to expectations. The greens were much better at Fantasy Valley - the other course owned by Wisp. We played there the day before and was expecting Lodestone to be just as nice.

I really liked the layout of the course. I like courses where the holes are spread out and not stacked up on top of each other. It really makes pace of play better.

The staff was very friendly, and it is a nice bonus for them to put bottled water and towels in the carts for you.

We came up for a buddy golf trip with 8 golfers and will try to make this an annual trip. We had a great time and the weather was perfect.

Great Hale Irwin designed mountain course

If you like mountain courses add this one to your list. We played this track on a Saturday and Sunday in early June.

We were welcomed by a friendly staff in all aspects including the cart attendants, pro shop, starter, ranger Joe and the cart girls. We were playing on a early season package that was booked through the resort thus we received a reasonable rate compared to the regular season greens fees.

The very challenging course has 6 sets of tees ranging from 5185 yards to 7475 yards and a 142 slope rating so there are many options for all types of golfers.

The cart path through the entire wooded course is done in cement and there are some sparsely located mountain homes and gorgeous views.

The many bunkers were very playable with a fine sand. A yardage device is a big help especially for club selection from the there are opportunities to hit 3 woods and 5 woods from the tee.

The large greens are full of slope green,providing for some interesting up and downs and risky 3 putts if you end up on the wrong side of the green.

There are a couple split fairways, a

biarritz green with a swale in the middle, a long downhill par 5 with a Deep creek lake view, and there is the par 3 17th green that sits atop a rock ledge.

There are some videos of the holes available for viewing on the course website so you can get a feel for what you are in for. All in all its a favorite mountain track that one can look forward to playinh.

Lacks senior tees and overpriced

This course is well designed with some great views.

However, it is a mountain course and 6,300 yards is above the skill level of our senior group.

Likewise it is grossly overpriced for retirees.

We made annual trips to Deep Creek for golf outings for several years.

We will not return until senior tees (less than 6,000 yards) and a reasonable senior rate (less than $50) are established.
