"Great course"

5/15/22: Review by B-Man

Played Sunday in TheGrintTour's Classic at Mooresville. Overall, the course was in great shape. The greens were typically immaculate, rolling quick and true – watch out for some of the pin positions near slopes! Tee boxes and fairways were lush and green, except for signs...

      Played Stonebridge on 9/29. Course in good condition. Greens rolled good and pace of play was great. Tee’d off at 9am and finished at 1pm as a threesome. Lot of ball marks on the greens but they are in great shape and roll good. People should not be able to play golf if they don’t fix there dam ball marks on the greens! Fairways were also in good shape. Get down to Mineral Springs and play this course. Worth the drive!

      Played Stonebridge 11/2. Greens were punched Monday 10/27. They were a little bumpy but give them 2 weeks and they will be back strong. Course in good shape.

      I have played Stonebridge twice in the past month, both weekend afternoons. The course layout and conditions were good.

      However, both rounds took over 5 hours to complete, and that was after our tee time was delayed by 15-30 minutes (and these were relatively warm, dry days, so there was no frost delay). Rangers were scarce and only promised the pace would improve, which it did not.

      Weekend pace of play is a problem at most public courses, but it is time we hold courses accountable to improve the pace. Sadly, Stonebridge has not done so.

      Played Stonebridge today, and it was awesome. The conditions of the fairways were country club-esque and the greens were in the usual top notch shape. They also have a free VIP program that gives you the lowest rate avaialble at all time. Highly recomend

      played Stonebridge 8/16 the greens are beat up and no one repairs ball marks…why? too crowded due to the V I P card
      So with the bad greens and pace of play will probably skip it for a while…

      Yep, I played a second round of 18 holes today, but this time at Stonebridge. Great conditions, as usual. Apparently, they’re going to aerate right after Labor Day, so get those rounds in while you can!

      Greens are in very good shape for this time of year. Fairways are also good…and will be great soon.

      This course is in great shape. One of the best in the area that I have seen.That being said…The staff has alot to be desired. I have played there numerous times and have friends that play there weekly and none of us have ever been treated so rudely as this past weekend. I will never set foot on their course again and neither will any of the others. I have no words to explain how bad an experience it was.

      I doubt that B-Man or anyone closely related to golf courses in this area will admit it, but it seems like there is a common theme around here of how crappy the courses treat their customers. I moved down here from West Michigan 1 1/2 yrs ago and personally think the golf scene here in Charlotte sucks. I have been truly disappointed to say the least of both course conditions and The attitude of the course personel. Maybe they don’t realize it, but they give off a HUGE negative vibe that they really don’t care if their customer is happy or not.

      Let me first say that I almost didn’t post PT’s message because there were no specifics mentioned and no contact address so I could follow up. The times I have played at Stonebridge, the pro shop staff has been nice and accommodating (when I had partners who were late for our starting time). My beefs with Stonebridge over the years were usually with regards to pace of play, but that seems to come and go.

      As for Dan’s comments, I can understand the sentiment, but I think that is too broad a statement to make about courses in the Charlotte area. While I certainly see my fair share of poor conditions, high prices, and pro shop attitudes around town, I also see examples where course staff members are appreciative of their customers and constructive feedback.

      So I would simply ask that feedback left here be as specific and as constructive as possible. Obviously, our shared goal is to improve the quality of golf in the area. I think this is the best way to accomplish that.

      I don’t like to bash anyone and had some reservations about even posting this to begin with. I have always enjoyed playing this course and actually shot my best round ever here last summer. A couple of weeks ago I was playing in a company sponsored tournament and we were on a 4 1/2 hour pace. My experience is that these events usually take a little longer because of how focused everyone is on their game. We were asked by staff to skip hitting off the tee on one hole and then one more hole later was asked to skip 2 holes entirely. We only had 3 left to play at that time. No one could prove that any play on the course was being held up. After our round we hung around for about 45 minutes just to watch and saw only 2 groups go off 10 and it took that whole time before a group even played 18. We finished on 17. That just told me that 1. we weren’t holding up the rest of the course and 2. they just didn’t want us there only our money. This came from the Director of Golf who I had never seen before so I guess that including the whole staff is a bit much. They were doing what he told them to. It seemed to me they didn’t schedule their tee times efficiently and we had to suffer. I hate the thought of not playing there again but I can’t take being treated like golf scum.

      PT and others — I try to give both sides equal time in situations like this because everyone has their own perspective. I let Boyd Everling from Stonebridge know about this recent critique and he quickly responded:

      As with any situation there are two sides to a story and here is our side.

      On Sat. Oct. 23rd, we had a 25 player outing that started at 8:30. The outing was very slow and we were getting many complaints from the golfers behind them. For example, the first group played at a 3 hour pace of play for 9-holes. Their lead groups had as many as 3 holes open in front of them, therefore slowing down the rest of the golfers. Even with the groups skipping holes, most of the groups finished at 5-hours plus. We had 120 players behind the event that morni! ng that were happy that we were putting in the effort to speed play so that they could enjoy their round of golf as well.

      We try to make all of our players’ experience at Stonebridge as pleasant as possible, and a pace of play above 5 hours is not enjoyable for any golfer.

      We do value the input of all our golfers and strive to improve whereever possible.

      We appreciate the opportunity to explain the events of that day.

      I just cant understand why courses book these events knowing darn well that these players are going to play a 5 hour round. Then they book tee times behind these groups and then the golfers stuck behind just get pissed off and never come back. Why don’t you simply leave an hour open between a large group and regular tee times? You may loose the revenue but you will make it up by not loosing a future booking.

      I can see both sides, but the one thing that irks me is when any course books outings in the best time for most of us to play golf. Yes it is guaranteed revenue for the course but not on Saturday morning, that is when most folks are able to get out to play.

      My preference is to see outings or tournaments booked after lunch on Saturday. I have played in several of them that was booked this way, this allows the regulars to get their rounds in before the outing plugs up the course.

      earlier this year in a egolf tournament,stonebridge allowed 4 walkers out around 3pm right in between our tournament groups.fortunately the marshals took them out to holes that wouldnt interfere with tourny but whoever gave them tee times needs to understand thats not right.never had issue with anyone at course then again i only play it maybe 3 times a year.

      I’m totally with the course on this one. PT was asked to move up 2 or 3 holes. PT says no one could “prove” they were holding up play.

      Guys, get a clue. If you’re not sure you are holding up play, you are. You have no right, tournament or other, to slow play. You say you were on pace for 4 1/2 hours, the course says 5: guess what, the course is right.

      There is another aspect that the courses that book tournaments need to address: tell them the expected time! 4 hours expected, 4 1/2 OK, slower than that and YOU WILL BE MOVED. Set the expectation, then the enforcement should provoke no complaint.
