Pros: Great Course, Clubhouse and service. Nice range and practice area with seperate tees.

Cons: A little pricey and can't order alcohol unless a member.

Stone Harbor Golf Club, which is located in Cape May County, NJ is a private golf course. You can play rounds if not a member for around $125-$150 in the peak season. It cost $4,600 per year to be a "full" member.

The course has 5 tee boxes with the course tipping out at just under 7000 yards. Its a Par 72 with a course rating of 73.9 and a slope of 139. There are 11 holes with water coming into play, highlighted by the 6th hole that has an island fairway that requires you to walk across a bridge (there is a bailout fairway left that's safer but adds distance to your approach) and the par 3 7th that has very elevated tees to an island green.

It's a beautiful layout that has a lot of man made hills on both tees and greens. South jersey is a very flat area but this course almost makes you feel like you're somewhere else. Very neat.

The clubhouse is great aswell. It's 2 stories that has a wonderful pro shop, equipped with any and everything a golfer would need. From sets of clubs to drivers, balls, putters, cigar selections, sunglasses and all other apparel. There is also a wonderful dining area on the second floor. Great food and an area outside that overlooks the 18th green, which is surrounded by a large lake. Downstairs is a world class locker room that has a seating area to watch tv and smoke a nice cigar, lockers, showers and even a shoe cleaning service.

This is a great golf course and anyone locally or on vacation would do themselfs a favor by teeing it up here. As long as the price doesn't matter.

I played SH a few times many years ago, but also just last summer for a charity scramble. I remember thinking that the course condition was OK but not great for a private course. But, what really annoyed me was that there were no graphic representations of the holes on either the tee signs or scorecards, which looked like they were run off a copying machine. With lots of blind tee shots, this made for an unpleasant round (I especially recall #18 where I crushed a drive into a lake where the fairway ended around 240yd).
I haven't played the course in a few seasons. When I did play (which was often) the scorecards had a complete layout of the course. I did hear that they had recently sold the course to someone (they used to be owned by I believe Crown Golf). I guess that newer owner went cheaper on scorecards and course management in general. I should have teed it up again before the review. It was definitely the prize of Cape May County when I played.
