Stonehouse Golf Club History

 
The 18-hole golf course at Stonehouse Golf Club in Toano, Virginia features 7013 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par 72. Stonehouse was originally designed by one of the most innovative golf course architects in the business, Mike Strantz, a former protege of Tom Fazio.

Strantz envisioned creating a mountain-style course that disturbed nature as little as possible. With deep bunkers and wide fairways, the par 72 layout features dramatic elevation changes. Enormous-sized putting greens perched on the edges of natural cliff formations with constant challenges for any level player.

When the course opened in 1996, Stonehouse was named "Best New Upscale Public Course in the Nation" by Golf Digest and "Top 10 New Courses You Can Play" by Golf Magazine. In 2000, Stonehouse Golf Course was awarded as one of the "Top 100 Public Access Courses" by Golf Magazine. In 2005, Golfweek Magazine awarded Stonehouse Golf Club as "The Best Public Access Golf Course in Virginia".

With the drop in the market in 2008, the former owners - Tradition Property Group - experienced a sharp drop in membership and had a hard time of staying open. By 2017, Stonehouse Golf Club was just a shell of its former self and had lost all of its prestige. The golf course had lost all of its greens, tee boxes were bare and the fairways over grown with weeds. The course was officially closed in November of that year.

In December 2018, J. Sanders Construction bought the property with the idea of bringing it back to its former glory. Stonehouse Golf Club is due to re-open July 2019!
