Draped over the foothills of the Sauratown Mountain Range, Stonewall Golf Course sends golfers swinging over steep hills and sudden chasms on a 5,222-yard layout that epitomizes mountain country golf. Throughout the round, dramatic elevation changes complicate yardage readings, and fairway-side drop-offs frame narrow landing zones, encouraging players to leave their driver, 3-wood, and acrophobic head covers in the bag.
With multiple par 4s measuring 300 yards or less, players must cautiously approach each shot off the tee, as efforts to reach the green in one heroic drive could land their golf ball in Town Fork Creek or one of several ponds meandering through the course. The course draws its name from the par 3 eighth hole, where golfers start at an elevated tee box and descend 75 yards down a craggy face that, when viewed from the green, assumes the appearance of a seamless stone wall. Fueled by electricity and an ancient resentment for gravity, golf carts—which are mandatory on the course—help players climb the steep fairways in efficient fashion.
