Golf

“Most of our members work and have families.  We like golf, but few of us play every day.  That means the course is almost never crowded.  There are enough members to get a game whenever I want, but if I just want to buzz around on a weeknight, I can squeeze in a few holes I couldn’t elsewhere. Sometimes it might only be 3-4 holes, but the holes are a peaceful slice of heaven compared to sitting at my desk or in front of the TV.”

imgOften cited as one of the best layouts in the Greater Washington D.C. area, golfers have long been drawn to Stoneleigh Golf & Country Club.  The Club was named The Prettiest Golf Course in Northern Virginia by Golf Magazine and was recently awarded a 3.5 star rating by Golf Digest.  

Stoneleigh was also named one of the best golf courses for women by Mid-Atlantic Golf.  The forward tees at Stoneleigh put women on equal footing with men. They take some of the bite out of the forced carries and offer plenty of shot options. 
 
Nestled at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains and Snickersville Gap, Stoneleigh offers members and their guests a private golf club experience with the unique blend of history and outstanding service. Touches of pre-Civil War character are prevalent throughout the course, including an 18th-century manor house, a historic bank barn, an old toll road, and the Founder’s Cottage.  Golf course architect Lisa Maki completed the course design in 1992 and was inducted into the Golf Architect’s Hall of Fame in 2002.

At a time when other private club members complain about not being able to get a tee time at their own course, Stoneleigh members enjoy uncrowded links with less than half the rounds played annually as most other clubs in the area.  Almost half of the Club’s rounds are played by walkers, something that sets Stoneleigh apart from other private clubs in the region.

The Club is enrolled in Audubon International’s Cooperative Sanctuary Program which demonstrates Stoneleigh’s commitment to help protect the local environment, conserve natural resources and provide wildlife habitats.
