A private golf partnership located in northwest Chester County Pennsylvania, Stonewall was conceived over 23 years ago by a group of golf enthusiasts who longed for golf in its purest form - without tee times or restrictions; where players are encouraged to walk the course.
Rather than another good country club, Stonewall was conceived as a golf club with excellent courses available for Partners whenever they wanted to play; challenging for the superior player while manageable for the average player. What Stonewall is not, is perhaps just as important as what it is. The vision was simple. A quiet, unpretentious, walking course in the countryside where one wouldn't have to worry about a full tee sheet or encroaching development.
The facilities at Stonewall now include two eighteen hole championship golf courses, each with practice facilities, two golf houses with overnight accommodations, a golf shop and restaurant facilities.
The golf courses, both designed by Tom Doak and his company Renaissance Golf, complement each other. Each offers a decidedly different approach to the game. The Old Course, with more demanding shot values and an emphasis on driving accuracy and distance, complements the North Course, which offers more generous landing areas, but requires a more exacting short game. The Old Course is a walking only golf course. The North Course, while encouraging the use of caddies, allows golf carts.
Stonewall's Old Course has been ranked among Golf Magazine's top one hundred golf courses in the United States, while the North Course was named one of the top ten best new courses in the country by "The Golfer" magazine. Both have been widely accepted by local and national golf communities. The Old Course has hosted a number of prestigious events since its opening in July 1993 including the Pennsylvania Open, the Philadelphia Amateur and the Philadelphia Open. The North Course, opened August 2003, has hosted the Mary Farnum Cup for the WGAP and the Jack Connelly Invitational in 2005.
The Old and North courses will together host the 2016 USGA Mid-Amateur Championship.
A truly unique golf experience set among a very private collection of rolling hills and farmlands, with breathtaking vistas of the surrounding area, Stonewall confidently stands among the most prestigious golf venues anywhere.
