Course Review - The Stonecreek Golf Club Course Review
This traditional-style layout is defined by a creek that winds through the
course and is in play on 15 holes. Players are faced with constant ball flight
challenges due to the omnipresent creek that adds equal dozes of beauty and
bite along the way. While avoiding such a hazard would seem prudent, the
strategy on most holes is to land the ball close to the creek resulting in an
easier following shot. Bite off as much as you dare, particularly from the 4 th
tee, where the fairway bends sharply along the creek. Solid putting is
paramount, as green undulations are severe. Built in 1983 in the Paradise
Valley area, Stonecreek Golf Club touts a challenging but very playable layout.
Only a few minutes from Meridian CondoResorts, this course is beautifully
manicured, offers panoramic mountain views, and provides the ideal balance of
challenge to reward for all levels of play. Stonecreek rewards good execution,
but does not severely penalize errant shots. You can have a fun round of golf
and not get beat up.
The signature hole, number 6, is 359 yards of pure
challenge. An elongated fairway bunker guards the right side of the fairway off
the tee, and the small creek crossing the fairway threatens too long of a
drive. The green is very well protected behind a lake, boulders, large grass
mounds, and greenside bunkers.
