About Us:

Fieldstone is a private club nestled on 184 acres in the rolling hills of northern Delaware featuring dramatic elevation changes, bent grass fairways, numerous sets of tees per hole, and old-world bunkering. The pristine nature of the property was preserved to provide members and their guests with an unparalleled golf experience. Hand-laid rock walls that wound through the property were preserved and incorporated into the design plan. 

Over the past several years, the club has invested in its continued success through a complete bunker renovation with Dana Fry that is currently underway, a practice facility renovation in 2021 including the installation of Tahoma 31 target fairway and a Trackman Range system, and a phased upgrade of the irrigation system.
