Stonehedge Country Club is a Semi-Private 18 hole golf course located in Factoryville, Pennsylvania.
The course opened in 1992. The course was designed by Jim Blaukovitch.
Stonehedge is a golfing community; secluded by 265 acres in the Beautiful Endless Mountains of Northeastern Pennsylvania. The 18 hole golf course has earned the reputation as one of the better golf courses in the Northeast and is surrounded by a planned development of single-family home sites and luxury town-homes. This course has enough variety of terrain to challenge the most advanced golfer. The front nine is somewhat open, but there are many scattered trees that can alter your shots, and the narrow back nine is thickly tree lined. All the tee boxes are elevated, and the large greens are undulating and fast. Local golfers claim that these greens are the best in the entire county.
Par for the course is 71. From the back tees, the course plays to 6,644 yards. From the forward tees, the course measures 5,046 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 3, a par-5 that plays to 601 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 7, a par-3 that plays to 129 yards from the back tees.
Watch out for # 2, a 449 yard par-4 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole is # 14, a 129 yard par-3.

This is a qualified evaluation, as we played the course on one of only two days that week the course was even open, due to prodigious rainfall (which made our pace of play outstanding, as we were nearly the only people on the course). Carts were allowed only on carefully staked-off portions of the rough. However, even with the utterly soaked fairways, we thought the course was a ton of fun. The holes all have character and require strategic shot-making, and the greens were smooth and relatively quick. Note that this is NOT a walking course under any condition--the hills and distances between greens/tees mandate a cart. My husband (a scratch golfer) was challenged, and my skills (decent female golfer) were challenged without being abused. The club house was under construction, so the pro shop/snack bar are housed in a mildly tatty trailer for now, and the parking lot is unpaved. But the staff were gracious and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. We will definitely play here again when the weather is more agreeable, and I'll reevaluate at that time. If nothing else, I want to see the new clubhouse, which looks to be a real gem when it's finished.
