Good day of golf

Greens were in great shape and fairly fast. Not too crowded on Labor Day. Rough was pretty thick and you basically had to drive over your ball to find it. All the water hazard are drained for some reason - kind of weird

Excellent Value

Thanks to GolfNow, we got a great rate. Stone Crest is a great course and, depending on what 9 you choose, is as difficult, or as easy as you want it to be. Three 9's to choose from.

Great first experience

I played Stone Crest for the first time (West-East combo) and loved it! As a relatively high-handicapper the water and bunkers provided a challenge without being overly difficult. Some parts of the course were a little dry, but overall it was in great shape. Best of all, I was able to get a Hot Deal on Golfnow and play 18 with a cart for $10. You can't beat that price for the quality of golf you can play here.

How can these people charge money for a course like this?

I have played 10 different courses this year and this by far is the worse course I have played. I don't think anyone has a clue how a course is supposed to look. What chemicals are supposed to be used, or if they even care. The rough was thick and long, the fairways were brown, with crab grass and long. Someone mowed the fairways with half the mowing blades low and the other high, so it looks and played terrible. I mean, it was aweful. What are they doing there? I can't begin to tell you how terrible it was. I am about to call them and ask them what is going on? This place used to be a nice course. The rough has always played long and thick so I expected it but the greens and tees and fairways were horrible. They are ruining a good course because there is no effort being put forth or lack of knowledge about how to use chemicals.

Bugs and Power Lines

Played the West-East courses. Each of them had potential but had major flaws.

First, it was very buggy all over the course. Bring a lot of bug guard if you find yourself there - I had to re-apply twice.

Second, the condition left a lot to be desired. The course doesn't really have a fairway, more like light rough and thick rough. The thick rough was very lush and would grab a club. The light rough is more like a backyard - very patchy and inconsistent. Tee boxes were full of dandelion stems that were not mowed either. Greens were rock hard, grainy, and slow. Most of them were also very patchy from ball marks that were not fixed or signs of disease in the grass. Not good for this time of the season.

But why I really knocked this course down to 2-star was the quirks of the course. This was clearly supposed to be some kind of housing development with a golf course, and there are some houses on/around it, but in the dumbest spots. Some have nets guarding them because they are either right behind the green or stray too far into the line of fire on holes. You have to be on something to think it's a good idea to build on some of these spots, let alone buy one. But the West 9 is the major problem - power lines are in play on 3 holes. You tee off through them on 5, hit your approach through them coming back on 6, and then on 7 they run adjacent to the fairway on the right side the entire length of the hole. The pole was maybe 20 yards from the flag on 6. This is again a very stupid design flaw that disqualifies the course from being taken seriously in my opinion.

So when you add it all up, I know the area is a bit of a black hole for golf between Bloomington and French Lick, but there has to be something, anything better to spend your money on around there. I won't be back to try the other 9.

Enforce not fixing ball marks, not collared shirts

Pro shop staff threatened to make me leave if I didn't wear a collared shirt. I obliged. Once on the course I fixed at least 3 ball marks on every green plus my own. I think they need to change their policy to outlaw those who do not fix ball marks as opposed to those who wear nice, solid colored Columbia T-Shirts (that fix their marks). Seems like they value those who dress spiffy and disgrace the game more than those who dress reasonably and have great respect for the course and the game.

Experienced Greenskeeper Needed: Apply Online

There is a word I hate to use when reviewing a course; that word is "potential." The fairways are a virtual lost and found department. Don't bother hitting it straight. Your chances of finding your ball are not good on or off the fairway. No worries though, you will find some. Never yours but if you're like me and play cheap balls, you'll come home with upgrades. I like the layout, the staff and I got a Golfnow Hotdeal so the price was fair.

Like the cut !

I was pleased in the way the fairways were cut, with the rough having a 1st and 2 nd cut,.

The greens were great, some what hard and fast but fair, they to had two cuts of grass surrounding the green.

The cuts of grass in these areas made it easier for me, not to be so down on myself and aloud me to have a better chance on my next shot for only being off the mark at times.
