The Tee boxes and fairways were in very good shape. The greens were a little slow from air rating a few weeks ago.

It was a good value, the course condition was fair, the bunkers could use more sand. Side note: I've played this course three times and I haven't seen a beverage cart once. There's a Beverage cart always parked in front of the club house, I just haven't seen it while playing.


Player Tip: the bunkers appear to have thick fluffy sand in them but there is hardly a half inch before hardpan... be careful.

Paired with a couple who were not good players so made round kind of lengthy. They were real nice people however so made up for slow play. Tees & fairways were in good shape but greens were a bit hairy and slow. Overall a good experience.

This course is always in pretty good shape. It is a moderately priced course and a good deal for the money. There are some really interesting holes and even though it's not the most difficult course, it makes you think. If you don't hit the correct side of the fairway on many holes, you can find trouble. Hole number seventeen is one of the most interesting holes on any golf course in the area.

Everything was really great from the bag drop greeter bringing cart right to our car, to the pro shop, to the on course refreshment cart. Did I mention the golf course layout will really test you and the greens putt true. A couple beers on the deck at the end of the round.......I'll be back.

This was my first visit. I usually play from the whites, and this course is 5,375 yards, a bit less than the typical 6,000 yards. A lot of water and shrubs make up for the yardage, There are a few really fun holes where you can cut a corner off a dog-leg. We played in only 3 1/2 hours, which was wonderful. It was one of the few recent times where I felt completely relaxed in new surroundings, I had an excellent game, too. I will definitely play Deep Creek again.

Love this course, except. There is always an except. The only negative thing is the greens. Lotta work has got to be done on them. Bumpy because of a LOT of bare spots. And that is the only reason I gave it 1 star for the value.

Pace of play has improved some since last we played. Still some work to do. Course was in fairly nice shape for the end of the season with the exception of the greens that were beat up. Players do not seem to take time to repair ball marks.


Player Tip: As title suggests, obtain a course guide. Many blind shots, with water and bunkers coming into play.

The course was in great shape but I found it very challenging since I tend to hook the ball and found the course very narrow - therefore I got into a lot of trouble. If you hit the ball straight down the fairway as my wife does it is just fine
