Cut out of a forest of stately pines and majestic hardwoods on a peninsula that reaches out into a cypress shrouded lake is one of the finest golf courses to be found in southeastern Virginia. Designed by Robert Trent Jones and hidden from view by natural woods, Stumpy Lake, an 18-hole golf course, offers well cared for Bermuda fairways and beautifully manicured bentgrass greens. Natural water hazards and strategically placed bunkers intersect the fairways to tantalize your play. Wildlife from the surrounding woods often add to your round of golf.
But Stumpy Lake is more than a beautiful, well designed and cared for golf course a short drive from anywhere in Tidewater. There are the folks who operate it. The clubhouse-pro shop abounds in true Southern hospitality. Enter the beautiful clubhouse (completely renovated in 2009) and relax amid the tall tales of fellow duffers; refresh yourself at the sparkling clean lunch counter; or meander through the adjoining pro shop. If you’re a golfer, Stumpy Lake Golf Course is for you.
As you cross the natural bridge leaving Stumpy Lake, surrounded by elegant cypress filled waters, carrying with you a relaxed warm feeling, you will know you have visited more than just another golf course. You will remember Stumpy Lake.
