Golf Course InformationStoneCrest Golf Course is municipally owned and was developed as part of a recreational/residential/industrial complex on a reclaimed surface coal mine. In addition to the golf course, there is an industrial park, 120 residential lots, along with soccer, softball, football, and baseball fields. The City of Prestonsburg obtained the property in various ways. The Corps of Engineers granted some excees acreage adjacent to their Dewey Lake project. Some tracts were purchased and some were donated by individuals and companies. Most of the property was obtained by trading lots in the finished sub-divisions for raw acreage. In total about 700 acres have been acquired for the project.
The golf course is a championship caliber links style course designed by Chris Chrisman of Summit Engineering Inc. The course measures over 7,000 yards with 7 foot wide concrete cart paths that give easy access to the bent grass fairways, tees, and greens. More than 50 sand traps, some 50-75 yards long, make finding your way from the black, blue, white, or red tees to the large undulating greens a pure test of golf. Negotiating the 5 ponds can be a challenge in the ever present mountaintop breezes.
You will be welcomed to the spacious and well appointed clubhouse and pro shop by the outstanding StoneCrest staff. The pro shop features the best equipment available and also offers full club repair. StoneCrest hospitality and service are famous in the golfing community. After practicing on the putting green and driving range, or playing a round of golf, relaxing in the shade on the 2500 square foot club house porch is a treat. Views of up to 50 miles in any direction from nearly every spot on the course and the clubhouse make StoneCrest a destination you will not want to miss.
