On a two week tour of the Northeast and Midwest, I played a dozen courses listed on this site. Stone Ridge had some tough competition, and though I enjoyed my round, I found it to be the least interesting of the group. I loved the setup around the clubhouse, a large range, followed by a putting green next to the first tee……but that was the highlight. The course is part of a housing development and is broken into 4 sections. Walking is quite difficult as there are long distances between the sections. I prefer approaches that provide alternatives (either aerial or running shots), firm and fast conditioning, larger greens (for a variety of different hole locations and interesting putts) and wide fairways which force the player to think about where to drive to best open up the next shot. I found none of these at Stone Ridge.
