Yesterday only a few tee boxes had growing grass, more like sand patches. The greens have a weed condition that can dramatically alter putts and there were bare dirt patches all over the place. Course superintendent should visit Mayfair in Sanford to see what greens are supposed to look like. Most of staff is friendly and courteous. Not all.

Course parking area and proshop areas were very well laid out. Proshop was friendly and efficient. Putting green & aqua range were quite adjacent to proshop and 1 & 10 tee areas. Didn't use range but putting green was quite sloped, long and narrow due to location. Fairways and tee areas were quite good. The greens, however, were not good, with many damaged areas on multiple greens.

I couldn't believe the course was empty this morning which made for a two hour round.

The course itself is in real good condition except the greens. The greens are spotty and hard as a rock. I couldn't believe the number of wedge shots I took that bounced off the green or in a sand trap. I'll play the course again and on some greens and walk off after two putts.

Do not know how this course got 4/5 stars! Must have been older reviews.

Tight lie fairways, ok. Horrible, black dirt, sand traps. Water, water every where. Ok. But the greens? Mostly flat with patchy clumps of uneven grass. Some diseased areas as well. The greens were large so there was no excuse for pin placements near these uneven clumps. To putt through would slow or stop the ball before the cup. You could move ball off to one side if clump was not too large. Course layout is ok, but it feels and looks neglected. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

Country Club at Deer Run is a fun course with a wide variety of holes. Water comes into play on many holes so you have to think your way around the course. The greens are fun to putt with decent speed but like the rest of the course, they need work. With a little work, this could be a great course!

Played a round there because i saw its 4 star rating on Golf advisor. As someone who plays competitively a course is judged on its greens you can get away with a sub par (no pun) fairway but the greens should roll. Unfortunately there greens full of patches, dips uneveness, and ball markings. They were also a bit furry which made it difficult to judge speed. Halfway decent place to get some target practice and practice getting out of trouble, but 4 stars it is not. To put it in perspective Timicuan is 4 stars and they hold the U.S open qualifier there, soooooo take my review as you like. Hit them well. At best 3

The course is well maintained, with nice putting surfaces. They run pretty true. I stopped at the club drop, where a young man greeted me, loaded up my clubs and brought the cart out to me in the parking lot. I don't know if this is common practice, but it sure was nice of him. I was also nicely greeted by the gentleman in the pro shop. I will continue to return.

Unquestionably this facility has it's better days behind it. Deferred maintenance is evident, but not where it matters most, perhaps other than the sand traps. Tee boxes, while certainly not pristine had good grass cover and generally in good condition. Fairways had some tight lies but had good grass cover where it counted. Greens ran well, even though had not been recently cut. Electric cart in good condition. Staff could not be more accommodating and pleasant. All in all an enjoyable experience. Recommend without hesitation.
