Stonebridge Golf Club Named Among Top 10 Courses Under $55 By Golf Digest
(ROME, GA) - Stonebridge Golf Club - owned by the City of Rome and managed by Billy Casper Golf - was recently named one of America's "Top 10 Golf Courses Under $55" by Golf Digest.
Stonebridge joins several elite courses on the list including Bethpage (Red) in New York, Pacific Grove on the Monterey Peninsula and Coronado Golf Course in San Diego.
The magazine's team of course raters awarded Stonebridge high marks for its overall affordability, strength of routing, feature shaping, natural setting, greens, variety and remarkable nature of holes, conditioning and maintenance, landscape management and other criteria.
"Being recognized by this widely circulated and influential publication is an exciting honor for Stonebridge," says Joe Cieri, General Manger at Stonebridge. "Our staff works incredibly hard to ensure each golfer is treated to a value-oriented, memorable experience."
The top ranking is on the heels of Stonebridge completing a capital enhancement project last summer that converted all greens to Champion Bermuda Grass.
Popular since opening in 1994, the 18-hole, 6,732-yard, par-72 Stonebridge Golf Club has provided golfers with fun and challenge. The Arthur Davis-designed championship layout features breathtaking views of the Appalachian Mountains, mature Georgia pines framing the course and Bermuda-grass fairways.
The clubhouse is located at the foot of Lavender Mountain, approximately five miles north of downtown Rome. The golf course surrounds the clubhouse, allowing for a picture-perfect vantage-point of the signature No. 9 hole, Lavender Mountain and abundant wildlife. With a full-service golf shop and grill room, Stonebridge is an ideal setting for outings and other social gatherings.
Complete with grass tees and a chipping and putting area, the practice range is open year-round and perfect for honing golfers' games.
