  • We thoroughly enjoyed our round at Lodestone and will definitely be back! The course is challenging but fair, and offers plenty of opportunities to score well if you hit the right spots. One of the coolest, well-thought out layouts our group has ever played. The Good: -Staff is extremely flexible, friendly, and helpful -Course layout is spectacular and has lots of character -Views of the lake on a few holes are awesome -Greens are huge, undulating, and accessible, which makes the course fair given all the fairway undulation/slopes -Bunkers had plenty of sand (this might be a recent improvement - as some other recent reviews said the course lacked sand in bunkers - we didn't see a single bunker without sand) -The small diagrams on the scorecard were good enough to help overcome the many blind shots due to the course slopes; now that we've played it once we'll know exactly where to hit. -Fairways are plush, enabling players to spin the ball into greens. Potential Areas to Improve: -Some tall grass is growing on the edges of many bunkers - this might be on purpose, but if so I'd suggest telling players this to avoid bad reviews. It didn't affect our ability to play out of them. -Some greens have small (quarter-sized) brown spots, which might be signs of disease? They're still completely playable and roll true. -Consider investing in some new carts - with the incredibly steep hills on this course, the carts struggled at times. Not at all a showstopper, just something to consider. -It's clear people are willing to pay a premium to play this course. Use a little of that money and pave the driveway. By the time we left, our vehicles were doused in a healthy layer of dust.
  • DO NOT PLAY GOLF HERE. Every year myself and 15 or so buddies spend a weekend out in deep creek, with Lodestone being the centerpiece of the weekend. We will usually play 36 holes at the course, with maybe 9 holes at fantasy valley. Lodestone is now unplayable. They have a fungus on the greens and you cannot roll a golf ball on them. I have never seen worse greens in 40 years of golf, bar none, not an exaggeration. Nobody told us this was the case when we went out. Add to that the fact that they have increased the greens fees from about $100, which was already pretty steep, to $160 and the round left me literally sick to my stomach. It’s rapacious. We canceled our Sunday round because there was zero chance I was giving them another dollar. Beer is $40 for a 6 pack, so after buying some beers for friends I was out $300 yesterday for a course that is unplayable. All in, my friends and I spend pretty close to $10,000 for the weekend of fun every year, but we’ll be doing it somewhere else from now on Go play thousand acres, it is a gem at half the price.
  • A formerly spectacular course where the conditions do not equal the layout and price tag. Paid $150 for a Saturday morning tee time and was disappointed. This used to be one of my favorite courses and I would always tell friends they need to play it. The conditions are still playable but there were a lot of dead spots on greens (to be fair the starter said they were fixing an issue) and portions of fairways burned out, as well as grass growing in the bunkers. The staff is very friendly!
  • My group has been playing at Lodestone for a number of years. We have always looked forward to the wonderful layout, breathtaking views, and the wonderful course conditions, that is until this year. The practice range is not well maintained, the bunkers are horrendous, and the greens are no where near the quality expected for the price. I really hope the greens staff and management find the resources to being this course back before it is lost for good. This use to be my favorite course.
  • Excellent course. Would definitely play this course again. Ample fairways and large, challenging greens. Beautiful layout, with gorgeous views.
