Who's House? Stone House!
Just outside of Williamsburg, lies one of the toughest golf courses in our area. Stone House Country Club, home to huge pot bunkers, slopes and and more slopes!
Golf With History
Located just outside Williamsburg, Virginia, Stonehouse is laid over wild, tumbling hills near the York River in the Tidewater Region. When it opened in 1996, The Tradition Golf Club at Stonehouse was named "Best New Upscale Public Course in the Nation" and one of the "Top New Ten You Can Play" by golf Magazine. The tradition of accolades and awards continues. In 2001, Gold Digest ranked Stonehouse among the top 6 courses in Virginia. Stonehouse is also on Golf Magazine’s "Top 100 You Can Play" and Golf & Travel’s list of "100 Best Modern Courses". In 2002, Stonehouse was awarded 4 1/2 stars by Golf Digest. And, as you would expect from one of the best courses in the country, Stonehouse has first-rate conveniences such as a full-service bar, dining area, practice facilities, and a pro shop.
Stonehouse winds over 6,962 yards of steep forested hills, wide plateaus, and abrupt ravines. Against this tumultuous backdrop, the danger of deep bunkers and long carries is balanced by the relative safety of broad fairways and enormous putting greens.
