It was a very long round. The group in front of us were hitting 3 and 4 balls off the tee.. A ranger is needed to move people along.

Course in great shape,. Friendly staff and courteous fellow players.

The only thing missing was a cart person, very few opportunities to get refreshments on the course. At the present time, they lack a liquor license.

Beautiful - cant imaging how beautiful in the fall. Vistas on multiple holes. Course in excellent shape. A couple of holes need work but early in season. If you've never played, worth a few extra miles to play.

Weather was nice but it had rained a lot earlier in week. Course was soaked and should not have been open. Any area outside of fairway or greens was muddy with standing water even in high grass. Any ball landing off of fairway was lost or plugged. Cart path only was fine, but it was difficult to walk , even to the greens. Guy couldn't work computer system and made us sit and wait to check in, never offering an acknowledgement or apology. Second rate place.

This is a very nice course. The greens were in excellent condition very smooth and true. The tee boxes, fairways and bunkers need work. In all fairness it is early in the season and the fairway need some time to recover from winter damage but there are areas that need particular attention.

Overall a nice course to play

The course was so over crowded.

A few friends and I got to the course 30 minutes early to get some extra practice at the driving range. Range was closed. Then we waited 30 minutes to tee on the first. Once we tee’d, the course ranger stuck two of his buddies walking in front of us, AFTER WE ALREADY TEE’D. The fairways were bad. Construction going on. Greens were the only good part of this course.

It’s going to be awhile before this course is even going to be considered again. Tee boxes were littered with tees from what seemed like all fall. Fairways were full of goose, deer, maybe even bear poop.. greens had just been punched and all the plugs were dumped right of the green some even in the fairways leading into th greens. The only plus was the hot deal price. My advise go if you get a good price but don’t expect to have semi decent conditions for a month or two.

Nice layout, Nice course played here 11/12/18 so it was a little cold, the reason for my 3 ⭐️ is because the fairways could really use help, they keep the greens in excellent shape but the fairways have a LOT of dead spots. Very affordable so I guess you get what you pay for. unfortunately the weather hasn't cooperated this year so I'm sure that has a lot to do with it.

first time I played this course I thought it was fantastic. I love the dog legs it made me use every Club in my bag. The clubhouse let three singles go out each with their own cart. even though it was cart path only we still got done in less than 4 hours and had a great time. can't wait till I'm back in this area of New York so I could play this course again and this time I'll bring a friend. Thank you Stony Ford from a very happy golfer from New Jersey.

I have always enjoyed playing Stonyford because of the course layout. There are many doglegs and you get to choose how much you want to bite off on each shot. You can miss hit a tee shot and still recover a par.
