Stones Throw is a fun and challenging course with enough risk/ reward opportunities to keep you interested. The people are great and the price is right. Only issue I ever had is that they do not have a ranger to watch the pace of play and I have had to follow 5 and 6 sums.

This course has a wide variety of challenging holes for all levels, for instance No 2 you can opt to go the distance over the marsh or go for the shorter but interesting down the cliff shot. This is truly a fine representative of Minnesota Golf: beautiful flowers, Scenic Holes along the Rum River and over the Brook . 5 sets of tees for all ability levels

Stones Throw is a great course and is priced nicely. We enjoy the course as it has many challenging holes and water runs through out. The staff is wonderful and want to make sure you enjoy yourself. The only drawback is that they allow 5 or 6 somes that slow play to a creep. The need a ranger on busy days.

I have played this course a few times, it is challenging enough for me (lost plenty of balls) and my 11 year old son. We had a good time even though the weather sucked. It rained off and on through the first nine but still had a good time. I like the way this course is laid out with plenty of narrow shots plus water hazards. It is also nice because it is well cover with trees so not to feel others are to close to you as you play.

its a shorter course but it's alittle challenging, you have to give some thought to your shots. Great course for the money would definitely put it on your list of course's to play this summer.

My wife and I for the Hot deals rate of $14 on Sunday Aug 11. We arrive about 20 minutes early and got out right away. The course in moderatley hilly with lots of trees. The tee boxes are in OK shape and the fairways and greens are in great shape. The fairways do have a few bare spots and a weed here and there but not bad. Most of the greens are elevated and they are fast making for some tricky putts.

A creek runs through the course and you have to cross it a number of times (I managed to find it a few times). Two holes run right next to the Rum River which is very scenic.

The course is not real long but it does give you a fair test of your skills.We will play again!

Some heavily wooded areas and water come into play quite frequently. If you hit the ball straight, you will score well. Very nice course, and a clubhouse with character!

I've played this course a couple times this year both during the week and on the weekend. It is a really nice course with manicured greens. However, the clubhouse schedules way too many groups too close together and doesn't account for group ability. I played it yesterday and the clubhouse scheduled two groups of six in front of my twosome. The group in front of us throughout the round had four children under the age of ten all of which were golfing. We had to wait on all of our shots and our groove and scores suffered. I attribute this rate of play directly to the clubhouses lack of attention to group size and ability. I would recommend the course to people who have 5hrs and a lot of patience.

A fun course for a great price. Some holes were flooded on the back nine after the huge rains recently but we played the front nine again and enjoyed the challenge. I have been there twice now and the cashier tried to overcharge both times. Senic and not so busy during the week.

I love this course for the price. The course isn't very long but is very tight. The greens are always in good shape. Highly recommend for any level golfer.
