Stonehenge Golf Club Llc

  26 Reviews

Stonehenge was an interesting links-style course that winds through a neighborhood, and turns into the woods for a couple holes on the back. Recent rains must've kept them from mowing the rough, as it was ankle deep just inches off the fairway throughout, which led to a lot of time ball hunting - it was the thickest rough I've played all year.

The layout was fun and interesting, with some moderately-sloped greens and a neat island green hole on the front. For October it was in pretty solid shape for the late season. They aerated the greens about 2 weeks a go so they still were a little bumpy but nothing major. Clubhouse looks very nice along the 18th hole. The course was surprisingly dead for late-morning on a Tuesday.

If you find yourself in the area or in/near Fort Wayne it's worth a go. It lives up to its reputation.

I was fortunate to find this course during a short business trip to Warsaw, Indiana.. I did read a few reviews but did not really know what to expect.
What I found reminded me somewhat of courses I have played in Florida and Myrtle beach. The next day, I head to Golf Advisor to learn that the Architect of Stonehenge is Ron Garl who in fact designed and built over 100 courses in Florida. Well, minus the Bermuda Grass, Mossy Oaks, and Palm Trees, you can certainly feel it here in the gentle fairway bends,that disappear into water that comes into play again and again; massive sprawling sand and grass bunkers. Now add moguls, and reedy grasses at the edges.and the occasional, thicker forested backdrops and it really does feel at times like Florida or somewhere in the Carolinas.

I learned the hard way that course knowledge is a must. On the Par 5 # 6... there's a creek about 30 yards short of the green.. you can't see it but it's there and that's where I lost ball one on my second shot. Layup highly recommended! On #9 approach, favor the left side of the green or risk entering one of two deep bunkers in front.
On #12 the fairway becomes essentially an isthmus with water both left and right. You can't see the water on the left but that's where I lost ball 2.
#14 is a hard dog right. I tried to cut the corner and paid the price. There is not good way to get to the green from the right rough which—to the right of the green— is unbelievable. Lost my third ball in it and took my worst score of the day. Next time, I'll bag the driver to find center fairway and a clean and reasonable approach shot.
On #15 it looks straightforward enough but the fairway gives way to water on the right. I did not know this and there goes ball number 4!
All of these problems I encountered were avoidable with a little course knowledge. What could have been a mid to low 80s round became a low 90s. Did not matter. It was a great course to play and a joy to learn the hard way.

Around the course in general the fairway is a must. The rough can be reasonable or as serious as you've ever seen. Lose your ball in the open type of thickness.

At the end of the day, Stonehenge has all I care about in a golf course; Good Tee Boxes, Great Fairways, and Excellent Greens. Consistent and very playable bunkers.The greens were near perfect for this time of year. I mean stunningly well cared for. I typically will repair two or three ball marks when on the green (more if I have time) and I actually had trouble finding any to repair other than my own. I also noted that the par 3 tee box divots were nicely sanded and the carts carry TWO sand/seed mix bottles This tells me that the course staff AND the people that play this course really care. They should. It's a gem!

I do hope Stonehenge is receiving the support that it needs. It's very surprising to see a course of this caliber not filled with people all days of the week. Our threesome saw just a handful of other players around and we literally did not encounter a single golfer from in front or behind anywhere on the course. I've seen top notch layouts and facilities fail due to lackluster support from the golf community and in this case it would be a terrible shame.

Let me not forget the staff at Stonehenge. All incredibly kind and helpful in every way you could ask. From this threesome you get 6 thumbs up! Well done, and we look forward to playing again some day!

Have played this course 4 times in the past year. Every time I walk away wondering why there is not a full parking lot. At Stonehenge you get a very nice course layout, excellent greens and a nice pace of play. This latest round came on the heels of some big downpours but the course seems to drain very well and our foursome had a great time.

Fairways and first cut of rough hadn’t been mowed in a week. Second cut just as bad. Greens just ok.
