Stumpy Lake Golf Course
A public, Robert Trent Jones, par 72 golf course which was carved out of woodland and incorporates plenty of natural water hazards and well placed bunkers across its 6,846 yards. The fairways on this course are tree lined and the greens are large. A driving range with both grass and mats is on site, as well as a practice bunker, a chipping area, and a putting green.
There have been exceptional improvements at this golf course! There are several new staff members including a very talented knowledgeable, and detail oriented Superintendent and a new Golf Pro. The course has never looked better. Play this course and you will be very impressed!
I've been playing Stumpy for 25 years (off and on) and I swear that I have never seen the course in better condition. The greens (although a bit slow) are full (with very little seed) and even though the fairways have always been thin, they are still better than they have been. With the addition of Brian at the desk, the clubhouse is a great place. Love the new clubhouse too. The marshals there are the absolute best. The staff there make every visit most enjoyable. Shooting a decent round makes it even more so. Great price for this course and fairly easy to reserve. Only downfall at Stumpy is if it rains hard the night before. If the course is cart path only, there will be water on most shots. Still playable, but shots don't roll well in water. If it's 90 degrees, have fun and let it rip.
Played 9/18/09 first time at this course. Enjoyed it a lot, Nice course even though the greens had been aerated and top dressed.Will definitely go back again. The staff was polite and I had no complaints except the little black flies eating me alive.
I had not been to the clubhouse before teeing off today, and no one had told me that carts were restricted to the cart path today. On the first hole, I drove onto the fairway, and a marshal roared up and screamed at me for driving my cart onto the course. There was no need to be rude; this marshal needs to be trained in the art of politeness.
Some of the reviews here say that the greens were dead or that the fairways were in poor shape. Well they used to be. Within the past two years they've put in new pipes in the fairways and have completely redone the greens. At one point the greens were killed after there was a problem with the water. While that stinks, they made a bad situation into a good one and redid them completely. Now they're in great shape, and in my opinion are the best kept greens in town.
They've also rebuilt the maintainence buildings, and are in the process of renovating the clubhouse. Plus there are plans to redo the par 5 13th and place the green a bit father back onto a penninsula. The folks at Stumpy seem committed to becoming a high quality establishment.
I've also read that people have had trouble with the marshalls. While that may be, in two years I've never had a negative experience with the marshalls, or any of the staff for that matter. Always helpful.
Do be aware that when it rains, this course is on swamp land and the drainage isn't the best. In the summer it's generally not a big issue, however if there are a few thunderstroms in a week, it can get a little wet. The only other negative I can think of are the mosquitoes. While no one likes them, good luck finding anywhere in Tidewater without them.
Great course, decent price, good staff.
This course has seen marked improvements within the last year. Greens have been redone, fairways are in great shape with the new watering system in place. Staff is very friendly. Excellent value at $38 per round on the weekends includes the cart. From what I was told the clubhouse will be reworked next year. Cant wait to see it completed. I saw that all the previous reviews were written before the improvements were made. Dont sell this one short. Excellent value for your money.
Love the course. Plenty of challenge for 15 handicapper Many LH Tee shots. Reasonable fees for Va.Bch.
Bring the "DEET". This is a swap area. your the visitor. Mesquitos live here until a frost comes in.
Our tee time started out at 8:40am. We were enjoying our day when all of a sudden we get the marshal warning us we are one hole back. We look back and no one is there, we look forward and see a 4 sum on the fairway. On the 7th hole, Marshal drives by, points his finger and starts to yell at us, "I told you to hurry up". How rude can you be? Very inappropriate, especailly at the tone of like some little kids! Do Not Play Here! Rude Marshalls! No respect, no consideration, no manners.
