Reopened, renovated Stonehouse golf seeks former glory

by Deelyn Robinson

Stonehouse Golf Club in Toano has reopened and hopes to reclaim its past glory as one of the country’s finest public golf courses. 

Stonehouse opened in 1996 and immediately earned national awards from the golf industry, including “Best new upscale public course” by Golf Digest and “Top 10 new courses you can play,” by Golf Magazine, which a few years later listed Stonehouse among the best courses in Virginia. 


Innovative golf-course architect Mike Strantz created a breathtaking par-72 layout that incorporated its natural surroundings as much as possible. The course featured dramatic elevation changes and huge putting greens located on the edges of natural cliff formations. 

Hard times hit the golf economy a decade ago, however, and Stonehouse ultimately was forced to close in 2017. Enter J. Sanders Construction. The West Point company bought Stonehouse late last year with an eye toward restoring Stonehouse to all its beauty and fun. 

The course reopened to the public on July 4 after a dedicated effort to reclaim the clubhouse and course – including all tee boxes, fairways, bunkers and greens -- from overgrowth and dormancy. Among other necessary improvements made were repaired cart paths, new hole signs and markers, a rebuilt practice range and other course accessories.

J. Sanders Construction’s announced goal for Stonehouse is simple: “We want Stonehouse Golf Club to be the No. 1 choice for golf by providing an amazing golf experience on a beautiful course serviced by a professional and friendly staff.”

Why not book a round at Stonehouse and see for yourself what all the excitement is about!

Golf packages, tournaments and full memberships are available at the course’s website.
