Natural rock outcroppings come into play on several holes, with a 15 foot layered stone retaining wall running along the left and rear of the signature downhill par 3, 14th hole. Stonehenge Golf Club is proud to feature bent grass tees, greens and fairways for prime playing conditions.

Today, the Obed stretches along the Cumberland Plateau and offers visitors a variety of outdoor recreational opportunities.
