Greens in above average shape and rolled true. Fairways mostly nice (a few had patchy areas, and #10 essentially had no grass...really, at all). Sand traps were raked but had minimal sand but, comparable with all other courses in the area. Overall, I'd recommend the course, and I enjoyed my round.

I live near tons of great golf courses and I've played top notch courses like pebble beach, and bad bad courses like Old River in Tracy. Deer Ridge is my regular course because I golf twice a week most weeks and I can play this course with a loyatly card for $28 weekday mornings and usually be first out.

The course itself is great, it's not intimidating for the most part, but it's challenging and the course is kept in great condition. Greens are not the fastest, but they're fast and generally they roll true.

Only knock on this place is the "range" where you can hit balls up to 125 yards only. So there's no real warming up on the range before a round, but the first hole is probably the easiest on the course so get your warm up there :)

I do recommend this place to all my friends as a place to go and have a fun round without breaking the bank.

Our first time playing Deer Ridge and were not impressed as fairways were sparse in several areas. There also was no Marshall so pace of play was slow. A twosome was holding up several foursomes. I enjoyed the layout especially the back nine. We played on a Sunday and got to the couse at 8Am in hopes of having breakfast prior to our 9:20 tee time. To our

surprise, we were advised the restaurant/snack area was not open until 9! on a weekend. We had drove 80 miles and passed many restaurants so as to have breakfast at the coarse. In my 50 years of playing golf I have never seen a course that

opened it's eating facilities at 9Am on weekends. Not a good business model. Maintenence also on the building appeared way down as the rear door to the pro shop looked like it hadn't been painted in years. The lack of a full driving range is also

a let down. Their sister course, Shadow Lakes, has been closed, but in my opinion Deer Ridge should have been closed as Shadow is a better playing experience as I have played it several times.

Greens were rolling quick and smooth;

bunkers needed more sand.

The course's mini range (only 130 yards) is inadequate. The only full length driving range now is at the Brentwood Golf Club; Shadow Lakes across the street has been closed all year.
