Stonewall Golf Club kicked off with a Tom Doak design known as The Old Course
And now there are two courses with Tom Doak invited back in 2003 to build the south course (also known as The Udder Course in a comical reference to the club logo).
The Old Course was built on land with significant elevation change, and Doak designed a course that was a solid walk, but with smaller quieter greens than he is known for.
It is a solid test of your golfing skills and fitness
When it came to building a second course, his brief was to build a course with wider fairways, but more challenging greens.
He certainly has achieved that goal.
And the north course is set up for carts, giving older members a kinder alternative to walking the Old Course
It certainly offers a completely different playing experience
It is a good course, but not as good as the Old Course in my opinion
While there are some good holes, the standout for me is the closing par 5 eighteenth hole finishing back in front of the old clubhouse.
That was a memorable hole!
After playing the Old Course in the morning we took putters around the south course in the afternoon, and had a grand old time playing with those heavy contours.
The greens are fun and challenging, but overall the north course plays a couple of shots easier than the Old.
The North is a nice contrast to the Old Course, and makes Stonewall a pretty decent golfing facility in anyone's language.
Stonewall is a private members club and as such is not accessible to the general public.
The Travelling Golfer offers group tours to the great golfing destinations of the world.
