9/21/20: Review by Jonny

I played this course on a Monday in September, it was sunny and about 70 degrees but a very strong & gusty wind, maybe 20 to 25 mph. I had never played this course before so that certainly impacted conditions of play and my experience overall. I would say, the front...

Description

This course was built in 1997 and is located in Monroe, NC, but far from any main roads/highways. You'll need good directions to get here the first time. The course features a straightforward layout with relatively flat Bent grass greens. The difficulty comes with water hazards in play on a majority of the holes. The par 5 first hole is bisected by a small ravine that is crossed by a replica of the St. Andrews Swilcan Bridge, thus giving the course its Stonebridge name.

Notes

Memberships are available and the community includes an impressive tennis center.

B-Man's Take

I try to play this course when I can. It's one of my favorites. Greens are kept in good shape, though the Bent grass can sometimes suffer in the late summer. The course is a fun layout, rewarding long, accurate hitters with several chances at eagle -- the B-Man scored his first career eagle on the par 5 #18. All of the par 5's are reachable in 2 shots except maybe the par 5 1st hole, which has a ravine bisecting the fairway (check out the "stone bridge" after you hit your second shot). What can get you here at Stonebridge are the hazards -- 13 of the 18 holes and every hole on the back 9 has one in play! The closing stretch is one of the best in Charlotte. The 14th, 15th and 16th holes circle the same pond bringing it strategically into play on all 3. The par 3 17th requires a long carry over another pond and the closing par 5 18th is reachable in 2 if you challenge the pond guarding the front right of the green. Speaking of the greens, that's where you get a break because they are almost all flat and fairly straightforward. This is one of the better all around golf clubs in town with its large practice complex and event hosting facilities to go with a great layout.

    "Great course"

    Course is still hanging in there amidst the hot summer days, though the greens, with dozens of unrepaired marks on every green, are teetering on the edge. They rolled with good speed (and faster than I thought) but were a little bumpy, making shorter, normally makeable putts (10-15 feet) a bit of a crap shoot. It's likely than by month's end, they will not be fun to putt on. So get out and play em now. The rest of the course was in fine shape, no issues anywhere that I noticed.

    "Great course"

    The bent greens are rolling surprisingly well for this time of year. A few rough areas but overall I was impressed. Kept thinking they would be slower than they were which led to a few run by 3 putts on front 9. But figured them out and shot a smooth 36 on back. Bunkers were solid which was nice given all the rain we have gotten recently. This course is only going to get better for the next few months.

    "Great course"

    Stonebridge is in great shape right now. Aerated 3 weeks ago and greens are healthy and roll true. Play it now. As the summer goes on they have to water the bent grass a lot it it gets a lot of ball marks but for now, it is in awesome shape.

    "Great course"

    Almost perfect. Greens are almost fully healed and rolling as good as you can ask for in summer. Fairways and tees are grown in. Managed to avoid the bunkers today but they looked perfect. Staff was amazing as always. Always a top-5 course for me.

    "Great course"

    Played Stonebridge this morning before all the rain we're supposed to get this week. NOTE: They punched the front nine, so only the back nine is open and you are playing it twice. I imagine that they'll do the same to the back nine at some point in the next couple of weeks. The course was in great shape. Fairways have greened up nicely. Teeboxes were a little beat up in spots, but nothing terrible. Greens were in fantastic shape and rolled really, really well. I didn't hit into any bunkers, so I can't comment on those, other than to say they looked fine.

The Divide closing for greens renovation this month

By The B-Man on 8/5/20

Great news for The Divide! The course was approved for a $350k greens renovation starting this month. The greens will be sodded with Diamond Zoysia grass, the same as Eagle Chase in Marshville (and those have been good year round). The work starts next week and the course...
