  • I had the pleasure of playing this course for the very first time last week. My playing partner had played here previously and assured me I would enjoy the course. He was right! The design and layout were magnificent. Accuracy of shot placement is a must. The course was difficult but very fun. Wide fairways and large greens bring lots of opportunities. I do need to point out a couple of issues regarding course upkeep. Tee boxes were consistently inconsistent in their condition. Some had a few weeds, some were covered in weeds. Number 14 green needs lots of attention on the 1st third of the green. A couple of the ball washers were bone dry. Most bunkers had not been raked in a while. My playing partner observed that we neither heard nor saw anyone tending to the course doing our round! It was a Tuesday. Did they take the day off? My ratings: 5 stars for the fun and challenge factor. 5 stars for the Clubhouse staff AND the great food and service during lunch. 3 stars for general course conditions. Was there value in our round of golf? Most definitely if paying $35 for that round. However, before charging more, I'd like to see some serious groundskeeping . Will I return? Absolutely!
  • This course is in terrible shape, pictures and 4.5 star "rating" is a joke. If you are going to play golf in Williamsburg pick one of the many other great spots. The drive into the course made it seem like it was going to live up to the rating, but on the course the greens are burnt out and badly damaged in many spots. Tee boxes haven't been manicured for a long long time. The holes look like they haven't been cut in weeks, fairways are atrocious. Has potential it just needs a lot of attention and money which courses don't have today.
  • Stonehouse is ready for a Spring Cleaning. Although my round was one of my best in several years, I was constantly aware of the small details overlooked at this course. Weedy teeboxes, ball washers way past retirement, and frankly gross watercoolers met us throughout the day. A very exciting layout and nice big greens more than hold up the golfing part of the bargain. Its the insulting conditions of neglect that surely keep players away. Why don't courses realize this?!
  • A buddy and I drove down from PA to play a round this past Sunday. It's amazing that a 4.5 hr drive can make such a huge difference in temperatures ( 30's vs. 80's.). Everyone on the phone and at the course was wonderful and great to deal with. The course was visually stunning and frustrating just like a Strantz course should be. Some of the conditions were a bit poor, the fairways and especially the greens. BUT it's February.... I realize it's not the time of the year for ideal conditions. Still that is the only reason my rating wasn't higher. I'm sure in May or June the course is amazing. Off to Tobacco Road in two weeks so Strantz can kick our butts again.
  • After 20 years, this Strantz course still rewards epic shotmaking! Friendly staff, great facilities and food compliment a titan of a golfcourse. Playing alone, I ventured from the 6,950yd tips on most every hole. Any player capable of 250yd drives will appreciate the approach shot setups on the long par 4's here. Faced with mostly large greens the trick for better strikers is to place your landing near the edge-placed pin positions to score well. Novice players can take comfort with center of green shots that don't skid off.. even in March! Yay! Despite being top-dressed and with 3 week old aeration holes, I found most greens rolled well and had reasonably good pace. Compounding the mostly woeful teebox conditions, I also rarely found a flat lie upon them. (The course super is starting a teebox restoration plan that will continue as the weather warms. If flatter teeboxes result, the recent reviews here will surely improve by summer.) Once underway on each fairway, my woods and long irons saw heavy duty from often uneven lies. Playing well at Stonehouse will prepare you duly to win some Nassau's at your local flat-iron muni course. Virtually no water is in play and I only landed in 1 greenside bunker all day... Looking forward to more consistent greenside sand by Summer. The once signature fairway bunkers are now mostly sandless but seldom impacted my teeshot decisions anyway. Met up with a lively couple from Canada on several holes who also appreciated the grandeur of Strantz's design. And if you're a racing fan, the amazing, undulating cart paths were surely designed by Mario Andretti. In summary, I recently played Pendleton about 50 miles north of Stonehouse. For the same fee, we enjoyed much better conditions, abundant sprinkler yardages, similar terrain and routings. But what Stonehouse excels at is turning that feeling of dread on each teebox into one of confidence as your good shots reward you upon reaching each green. I'm looking forward to soon playing RNK, Brickshire, Pendleton and now Stonehouse every month! Cheers!
