Played this course recently. $20 with cart on a Saturday by booking online. Fantastic deal for a course that is normally $50 on weekends.

I had heard Stonehedge was a gem and their website quotes various golf publications (albeit from 15 years ago) saying that the PGA tour should hold an event there. This could not be further from the truth.

Granted I played here late in the season, so conditions were probably not as good as usual. But aside from the greens, this course was in bad shape. The bunkers were, in a word, atrocious. Full of rocks and very little sand. There were numerous greenside bunkers that could be mistaken for water hazards. The course was also saturated despite not having greater than usual rainfall. Fairways had not been mowed in some time. The cart path areas were brutal. Very bumpy where the paths ended.

The restaurant/grill room looked magnificent and the staff was friendly enough. The scenery was very nice as well. Maybe my expectations were too high, but this was a huge disappointment. Would not play here for $50.

This is perhaps the most spectacular area I have played golf. The course has the be built on old farm land, on the front nine, as it is lush green and wide open except for the 6th and 8th holes. Don't let that fool you though it is a difficult nine holes. I couldn't reach two of the par fours, numbers 2 and 5, because they are extremely up hill. The front nine is kind of in an inclined valley with hills surrounding the whole nine. The only hole I did not like was the 6th as it was totally different being narrow and rather difficult to play because of the nearness of trees to the green. The back nine drops off the hills and into the woods,a much different look to the course. A couple of these holes are rather bizarre. The 17th in particular has a wide fairway coming into a par 5 green that narrows to about 15 yard with tree to the left and a trap to the near right. If you are lucky enough to hit it there you have a third shot that is blocked by a huge tree in front of the green allowing you to only play at the left half of the green. There are a couple of other features like this on the back. The fairways on the front are excellent and on the back they were wet and sometimes spotty. The greens were very good,very fast, and fair. As someone previously mentioned ,there were no markings for yardage on the course which made it difficult to pull a club. Otherwise I had a great time playing this course and will play it again as often as possible.

This is one of my favorite courses to play in NEPA!

Kind of Disappointed

Everyone I talk to makes this place seem like it's Valhalla, but really it's a nicely cared for course without amenities or silly things like yard markers or signs anywhere. The lack of yard markers does in fact force you to concentrate and learn distances, which is a good thing.

I guess that for all the expectations people built up in my head I was a little disappointed. It's a nice course but it's nothing spectacular.

Best public course in NEPA, bar none. Long but open front 9, tight target golf back 9, terrific design. Large undulating greens which are best when they are firm and fast. Many forced carries, hit it long and straight or your score will suffer. Clubhouse is a trailer but plans are in the works for a new clubhouse. Many bunkers on the course but they are in BAD shape. Other than that the course is fantastic. Add a clubhouse, fix the bunkers and you have a PA top 10 course, all of the country clubs included.

I've played this course perhaps more than any course in the region. It's IMO the best course in the Scranton/Clarks Summit area. The front 9 is more open and forgiving with #1,#3, #8, #9 being good scoring holes. The back meanders through the woods and if your struggling off the tee you will pay dearly. The price comparitive to other courses is IMO very reseanable and their Thrus $28 deal can't be beat. It does get a lot of traffic in the summer and the course does show some wear & tear from time to time but it's usually very minimal. My only complaint is the double wide clubhouse and dust bowl parking lot.

We play this course as part of our annual September/October Golf Getaway. We play two rounds in one day. We added it to our rotation and have played it yearly for the past 5 years.

First let me say that the staff is excellent. They have always been courteous and helpful. The staff maintaining the grounds even when present on a hole stop what they are doing, move out of sight lines and minimize any sort of disruption. Each time we have played this has been the case.

The clubhouse is a simple trailer type building with a grill inside. There is a deck along the outside area adjacent to the grill. Sitting there allows you a view of the 18th green and the surrouding countryside.

The course itself is challenging without being overhwelming. It is long. It is well kept and has many interestingly set holes. There are wide landing areas and there are narrow driving holes. The course is set into the surrounding woods and keeping your ball in play is paramount, particularly on the back 9. The course is hilly and as such can have quite a few low wet areas.

Because of the inside and outside staff, the condition and playability of the course it continues to be a must play for our group.

Stone Hedge golf course

My cousin Bob and I played this course for the first time in March of 2006. We got an internet solicitation deal and figured we would take the drive. It was well worth the trip. This is truly a beautiful course, and worth every penny spent. We played in the early spring, before everything greened up, and it was still wonderful. This course is LOOOONNNGG! If you aren't hitting it well, expect your scorecard to reflect it. The greens were in good shape, considering the time of year, and the hazards were well marked. The landscaping here is top notch too. There are tee boxes perched atop giant platforms of stacked stone and well defined fairways meandering though massive changes in elevation. The par three with the peninsula green is gorgeous as well. The only thing that is keeping this course from reaching the "5 star" category is the somewhat cheesy clubhouse and the lack of electric carts with g.p.s.. The yardage markers are a little lacking too. Aside from that, I highly recommend it!
