First few holes in front and back are nice. As you go farther in and out there are fairways with patchy grass and the greens have dirt patches in them. Ball landed in a pile of something from a dog in a bunker. Thought that was odd. Course played well enough though. Just have to hit your spots and avoid the rough patches on the greens.

This is a great course to have in the neighborhood. Played on a Friday, had the place to myself. Do the world a favor...take the dogleg out of #2. 6 iron off the tee and a hybrid approach is awkward and I'm a low handicapper. The hole would be challenging enough as a par 4...and you could create an alternate tee for #12 that would make that hole a LOT more interesting for better players. Fun track, challenging...just needs some TLC around the tees and greens.

The fairways were in decent shape and well maintained. However, most of the greens were bumpy with several exhibiting isolated bare spots. The bumps made it difficult to read a line, and the ball hopped on it's way to the hole. The tee's were a mixed lot with some in good shape, and others lacking sufficient grass.

The sand traps were well maintained. I visited the beach often, and with the exception of one hole, (flooded by recent rains) the sand was soft and manageable.

The pace of play was excellent, finished 18 holes in 3 1/2 hours.

Half the greens had some unknown type of grass growing in patchy spots. Many of the greens had large areas of no grass. The fairways and bunkers were nice. The tee boxes were awful. Glad I only paid $16 and it wasn't a weekend round.. The course was not busy. One foursome in front of me that let me play through. Charged my wife $10.70 to ride.....ridiculous. Going to be a long time before or if I come back.

We enjoyed our day at this excellent golf course. The greens were a little fast but the layout was challenging nd made for a fun day. (Personal preference) I would have liked a regular terrestrial driving range instead of hitting into water.

I understand the lack of rain is killing the golf courses in the area but Deer Run has some sort of funky disease growing on some of the greens which made putting quite difficult. Otherwise, good course layout and good deal for weekend morning

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.
