Stony Creek's par 65 course spans 5,004 yards of emerald alleyways sculpted into rolling hills lined with mature trees. Begin an afternoon of orb-mashing bliss with a stint at the driving range, where a small bucket of range balls prepare to enter the stratosphere from a launch pad of synthetic turf. Once swings are duly loosened, free-swinging groups of two or four load their bags on the back of an obedient cart, which specializes in hunting down balls, traversing steep terrain, and judging players for taking too many mulligans. Throughout the round, the relatively short course—which features nine par 3s and one par 5—favors precise approach shots with capable mid- and short-iron play, as few holes demand exceptionally long drives but omnipresent bunkers wait throughout the course to claim the life force of errant balls. Recapitulate memorable shots and greenside meltdowns over an icy Pepsi (a $1.75 value) or domestic beer (a $3 value), or punish underperforming putters by showering them in steaming coffee (a $1.75 value).
Stony Creek Golf Course
A stately, English Tudor–style clubhouse greets guests from its perch overlooking Stony Creek Golf Course, a 5,004-yard, par-65 fairway chain that connects over rolling, tree-lined terrain. A stone-lined creek forms a watery wishbone across the relatively short course, adding a scenic sense of continuity as golfers hit their way across eight par-3s, nine par-4s, and one 518-yard, par-5. The course shares its grassy hillocks with a fully lighted practice facility featuring a driving range—which offers the option of hitting from synthetic turf or real grass—and a miniature golf course occupied by fountains and waterfalls. After a day at the links, guests can unwind at the clubhouse bar and grill, where immense windows look over the course and a covered patio provides an area for spectating games of bean bags, horseshoes, or ping pong.
