Stone Creek 1
Best value in the Ocala Area
I have played courses all over Ocala, and by far the best maintained (public) course has to be Stone Creek. You will be notified if you are not keeping up with the group in front of you, even if the group in front of you happens to be playing speed golf, you will have something mentioned to you about keeping up. (This is never a bad thing if you think it is you haven't experienced enough 5 1/2 hour rounds of golf)
The greens/fairways and tee boxes are always well maintained and properly taken care (sure they have to aerate and topdress like everyone else, never sure why people complain about this.)
The course has trouble, but most of it is pushed out away from the fairway far enough that you should be able to avoid most of it if.

A well maintained course.
This course is typically longer and more challenging than similar courses in this area. The course is open and subject to windy conditions.

Course in great shape. Green running fast and smooth
Tee off on time. Fairways in good shape, ample sand in traps. Green smooth with no burned out areas.

Wide open fairways
Course has wide open fairways which makes it forgiving at times. Sand traps where well placed. There is water hazards on some of the fairways, but doesn't really become a factor in playing the course. I will return. Range balls where $3.00 a basket. Club house was very well done. Food was great. Played for $25.00 pp on GolfNow. Can't beat that price.

This course is a real gem in the Ocala area. Has a nice practice facility and is well organized to maintain speed of play and team you up with other people. The greens on this course were the best I've seen in Florida at this time of year. Very true without being lightning fast. All in all a great place to enjoy a day of golf. Highly recommend to others to play.

very playable course, great course for couples.
Nice course, conditions were great, play was quick. the course is petty straight and open, not a lot of trouble or variety. however they have 6 tee locations that allow for every golfers desired length.

Great course and awesome value.
I go to Florida every year to play in a golf tournament and usually play other courses while in Inverness. I noticed this one had good reviews on Golfnow and decided to give it a try. I'm glad I did. The course is one of the best that I've played in the area. The tee boxes, fairways and greens were all in great shape. The greens were quick and the chipping areas around each green were fantastic. Not a bare spot in sight. The course plays very fair from the Black and Blue tees. I'll probably try the tips next year. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Prices in the grill were very good as well. I played on a Saturday in 3 1/2 hours and Monday in 4. I don't know of a better course in the area, especially at the rates they are charging right now.

Course sets up well
Even though this course meanders through housing, the course sets up well, with plenty of room for landing an errant shot. Greens are fast but nicely manicured. A must play if in the Ocala area.

The overall conditions were very good for this time of year. The greens were in outstanding shape. They held shots well, rolled true and were quick. The staff was fabulous and friendly. Chris in the pro shop was especially helpful and professional.

Very nice course for players of any level.
Nice course with wide fairways. It plays longer than you think. Because of the wide range of tees a chalange for every player.

Great setting, beauiful and in excellent condition.
In addition to a very nice driving range, the chipping green and putting green were terrific. Greens on course rolled true. Fantatic value. I would definitely play again.

very enjoyable day outing with good friends
we joined our very good friends for a round of golf and a very enjoyable dinner at the end of the game, we all found the course to be in top condition and to round off the day the dinner was most enjoyable... we will be returning and do it all over again very soon.

Nice mix of challenging and relatively easy holes
One of the best maintained courses in the area. The fairways are in great shape, the greens are fast , smooth, and in perfect condition. You can count on a great round here.

I have always loved playing this course. It is well maintained, the staff Is friendly, and the rangers make sure the pace of play is constant. I highly reccommend this course!

The course is great and the Staff is even greater.
With the different tee locations the course can play as easy or as hard as you want. The course was recently over-seeded and is very beautiful, the greens are "true" and fast, and lastly the staff is "world class" right on down from the head pro Mark to the starters and rangers.
I want to thank the staff at Stone Creek for always making my visits so enjoyable,

I enjoyed playing, unfortunately I was not able to finish because of darkness. Daylight savings. We only finished 15 holes. I started at 2 pm and the course was heavy. They paired us up with 2 other people so there seem to be 4 players all the time and it moves slowly.

Wide open course with some sand and water.
Excellent course for a friendly round of golf. Challenging for the mid to high handicapper from the white tees. Greens were true but the whole area needs rain to wash in the sand on the greens from a recent overseeding. This course is associated with a Del Webb retirement community so pace of play is a little slower than normal. The staff is very helpful and they have a great restaurant in the clubhouse.

Inquire about local conditions first
Course was partly closed: we had to play the first 9 twice, due to course maintenance and had to stay on the cartpath only. The wide fairways involved a lot of walking. Raincheck was denied.

Greens are in excellant condition, extremely fast. Fairways are in wonderful condition. Lots of water, but really doesn;t come into play. Just a pretty course. Worth the visit.
