Greens are fast and well kept especially in this dry weather. Course is challenging but pace was slow most of the way. Overall I like this course and look forward to playing it again.

Course is not overly long but the setup makes for a great challenge. Course was in good shape and the greens ran true.

It would appear that it is a popular course as the lineup for players was long after we finished nine.

I would recommend that you get as early a tee time as possible.

There didn't appear to be any long backups.

We would play again.

Course was in better shape than last time we played(4 years ago) but the four guys in front of us should have been on a par three course or playing from the junior tees. They need a ranger to ranger and not just drive around. I will not recommend this course. Our guests were embarrassed.

The first 6-7 holes were extremely slow. 7 minutes between tee times is not enough. After that it got faster. 4 hours 35 minute to play a 5,000 yard course is way too long. Greens were pretty good. No complaints. Fairways are typical FL. at this time of year...not much grass. Nice bar with reasonable food

prices. $3 for a jumbo hot dog and chips must be the cheapest in FL. Overall would play again just be prepared to wait 10 minutes between shots.

The golf course was very crowded and the pace on the front nine was very slow. The ranger did nothing to speed up play and allowed a foursome to look for golf balls hit into a pond while three foursomes were waiting. I liked the layout and the course condition. The price and golf course was good. A married couple were put with us and they were members and were helpful and friendly. Overall I enjoyed the experience.

Course has a fair amount of water but plenty of room for a bailout to keep you dry on most holes. There are several that you have to be pretty selective on shot placement to avoid wearing a life vest . Tee areas, fairways, greens and bunkers are all well kept. Without a stemp meter, I would say the greens are 9-10 in speed. During the winter months ( January thru March) the course is quite crowded and the pace of play could be somewhat slow. Saturday afternoons are your best bet for a good pace of play. Overall Deep Creek is a good average and fair value for Florida. The staff is as friendly and helpful as any I've found in south Florida. Go with a good attitude and you come away a happy golfer!!!! Hit em straight!

Although I have played this course several times & really appreciated the layout and pace, NOW it is SEASON, and they are overbooking. Tee time was 2:35 and never got on to course because they allowed 2 foursomes of walk-on players with no desire to keep pace of play, hence the 4 some ahead of us never got off until after 3 & we had to wait until 3:20 to start. As such, with sunset at 6 PM, we just finished 9, although we paid for 18. Furthermore, the pace of play created the "disruption of rythym" desired to enjoy play. So, I guess the lesson is to only schedule 9 if you have to play in the afternoon when there is ANY chance you might have to finish at sunset. All in all, however, would I play there again? Yes. Not in season; or AFTER checking with starter if there is any chance this could happen again. I really felt sorry for those berhind us who had to leave the course before even finishing 9 of the 18 they paid for.

Really friendly welcome from Mark who greeted us in the Car park and brought the Buggy to us.

Course nothing special, but offers some variations from a lot of the straight up, down and around the houses that a lot of Florida courses offer.

Worth another visit.

Really liked the layout of this course , greens were very nice. Not too fast but certainly fast enough so don't be too aggressive. Fairways and rough were also In good shape. Looking forward to playing this course again on my next trip to Fla. Booked on golfnow for $35. Which I thought was fair maybe because I played twin isles for $13 and got spoiled a bit .

Blue Tees stretch course out to about 5800 yds, white tees about 5400 yds, but still with some nice lengthy par 4 and par 5 holes. Nice layout and conditions except for some ongoing maintenance the day I played. But really a very nice course overall offering pretty much the same variety of shots as some of the longer courses. Very scenic layout.
