STONEGATE GOLF CLUB (231-744-7200)
Michigan Golf Course Review
Stonegate Golf Club in Twin Lake near Muskegon is a beautiful championship design.. The course plays along an undulating terrain with manicured bent grass fairways bordered
by mature pines and hardwoods - with stately northwood residences dotting the landscape. This is a secluded setting, ideal for golfers who appreciate natural environments.
Marshes, natural areas and ponds are homes to a variety of native wildlife - and also help to create great some great shot selections.
On a rainy July afternoon, mist hung over the fairways and greens, but broke for a short while enabling us to photograph the gorgeous green complex on the par four 8th. The
photos below provide views of what players will witness on their approach, and also afford a view from behind.
Most of the green complexes are slightly raised, with some open in front and others protected by bunkers and slopes. The bent grass putting surfaces were in extraordinary
condition during our review, true rolling and only mildly undulating. Fairways often contain one or more strategically placed white sand bunkers, usually near the opportune landing areas.
This 18 hole Championship Golf Course features a great short game practice facility, PGA professional lessons, and a beautiful clubhouse offering a full line of equipment and
apparel, as well as the Stonegate Bar & Grille. Golfers have five sets of tees to choose from, with distances and slopes measuring 6562 yards/137 slope (Black Tees), 6111
yards/124 slope (Blue Tees), 5729 yards/120 slope for men and 131 slope for women (White Tees), 5413 yards/1114 slope for men and 129 slope for women (Gold Tees), and
4933 yards with a slope of 109 (Red Tees). There are yardage blocks posted in the fairways at 100, 150 and 200 yards and also on the cart paths, with 150 yard stakes also
visible on all par fours and fives. Small markers on the flags indicate front, middle or back pin placements. Weather covers are standard on all carts.
The 3 par threes are an interesting group, and quite photogenic as witnessed by the above pictures. All golfers will appreciate the layout for its combination of challenge and
playability, and for its outstanding conditioning, beautiful scenery and great value and service. There is a grass range and practice green. We recommend a round here highly! For
