This is an excellent course to practice your short game. It was very well kept and the greens were in good shape. It also has a few holes where you can hit a driver or fairway wood. I would recommend this course to anyone.

My fiance has been playing golf for almost 20 years. I played my 5th round here at Deer Creek. We both equally enjoyed this course. He enjoyed using his irons and working on his short game while I enjoyed the less intimidating distances offered with this mainly par 3 course. After a great game we went to the tiki bar where Rob (the bartender) made us feel so welcome! We sat and talked with him for several hours. Tim was very helpful in the pro shop and provided a lot of information for us regarding memberships and other money-saving options. Even though I've only played 5 rounds, 3 were Disney courses, one in Haines city and one at Deer Creek, I'll be honest, this was my favorite. No one was making me feel rushed while my fiance was teaching me different techniques. It was a very comfortable place to play.

Deer Creek, an Executive course with several long Par 4s, has improved since our last time here. The fairways and greens were in decent shape, the surrounding overgrowth/weeds have been removed, the staff was friendly and helpful, and we enjoyed the round. And, yes, we will be back.

I played the course about four years ago and it was not in the best shape. It is much improved now, fairways and greens were well grassed, the rough however could use some improvement. The greens were a little slow. Most holes are pretty ordinary, but there are enough interesting ones tomake the course worth playing. Pace of play was good. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The price was right with Golf Now, and I will be back.

We have played this course last year was a great course to play.

This course has all the putting greens covered with white sand and they water these greens during the early afternoon (3pm) . We got wet twice from sprinklers the gentleman did see us but still turned the sprinklers on full blast. The white sand sticks to your ball therefore making putting extremely difficult. Yuk!!

We will not play this course again, they need to pay attention to the details
