Fame and Celebrity at Stonycroft Hills

Stonycroft Hills Club members have long referred to the club as Oakland County’s “hidden gem”.  It’s true, we are “low profile”.  SHC is nestled in a cozy, out of the way location, with only the 6th green and fairway readily visible from any nearby surface streets.

But quality shows and our profile that hasn’t kept Stony from attracting the big-time.  Last summer while in town for the filming of the latest Transporter movie, Hollywood star and avid golfer Mark Wahlberg (Oscar nominated for The Fighter, also starred in Best Picture winner The Departed, along with Transformers, The Italian Job, Three Kings)  found his way to Stony to play a round.  Hosted by Mark Barrett, by all accounts he loved the course (well, of course he did).  And we proudly display the photographic evidence of our celebrity visit.

Who ever knew SHC’s golf staff could be so photogenic?
