great condition, great value

I chose this course after reading the reviews of all the courses in the Pinehurst area. This course is beautiful, cut thru the pine trees, irregular shaped sandtraps (like Crehshaw/Coors), plenty of grass in the fairways and the greens were soft, smooth, and fairly true (very little grain). For the price, you can't beat this. The staff is very friendly and the course had a great feel. You won't be disappointed.

One of the best in the Sandhills

This course has amazing fairways, better than any in the area all year round. The areas which are under repair are clearly marked and the greens are the truest rolling bent grass greens you will be able to find for less than a $200 green fee. A single round here will not only have you coming back for a future visit but will certainly have you debating a membership. I have played there 10 times this year and every time I go back the course is in better condition than the last time. The staff is the extremely nice and do everything to ensure that you enjoy yourself and have a great experience.

Excellent Grounds

Great course, grounds were in excellent condition. The fairways were awesome, almost like carpet. Greens were also in great condition. Only thing I did not like was that they allow walkers on the weekends in the mornings which really slow down the pace, also allowing groups of more than four on the weekends impacts the pace of play.

Best Deal In Town for a great course

Played the course on way home from the Women Open and glad we did. Found this to be a GREAT value on a very nice course. The staff (Tom the owner, pro, and pr man) was honest about the course conditions and the work still being done. Inside the "ropes" tee-fairways and greens were very pleasant surprise, the price was a great value, the greens were as good as any in Pinehurst area. Well worth the trip outside of town.

Great Value!

Played on the morning of the US open and pace of play was excellent. The staff was very friendly and helpful explaining some of the details of the course to us. They have done some renovations and although they are not completely finished yet the course was in very good shape with the greens in excellent condition. Waste areas and pine straws definitely make it feel like a Pinehurst Golf course. A great value for the price, I would recommend as an alternative to the high priced area courses.

Great experience

I have been playing Deercroft for about 20 years now. I live in Cincinnati and visit the area a couple of times a year. I have always enjoyed this course because I grew up playing with my Dad and Grandpa, and that helped with the nostalgia, but now I have other reasons to love the course. The new management have done a tremendous job making this course absolutely enjoyable to play. The fairways were a 9 out of 10 and the greens were fantastic. I would highly recommend if you are in the Pinehurst area to take the 15 mile trip to play Deercroft. Did I fail to mention the price is right!!!

Great layout. Course in great shape although greens were punched a few weeks ago, so that's to be expected. Very picturesque holes.

Work in Progress

Clearly the new owners are spending some money to rehab this course. Don't believe their ads. Much work remains to be done. That said, the course is nice track which is in fairly good condition. The greens were excellent but a little slow. Fairways were also very nice with only few problem areas. The tee boxes were hit or miss. Half had little grass and were uneven, while the only half were great. The driving range is a mess. They don't use mats but haven't renovated the range so you hit off dirt and weeds.

The price reflects the current condition and the overall value was excellent.

Having heard it was under new management we decided to try Deercroft again. It was a pleasant surprise to see all the improvements that had been made. We will certainly play again.

Pleasant surprise Great staff

We hadn't played Deercroft in a long time, this was a pleasant surprise. The course was in great shape. Greens rolled true and fairways good. It's also a beautiful course. The ladies working there made us feel welcomed and had great attitudes. Only about a 45 minute drive for us from Fayetteville. We will for sure return.

Deercroft appears to be on the way back.

The golf course is in good condition given the cool spring we have had. The greens are in very good condition. There looks to a lot of clean up and improvement projects in progress. This course offers an excellent value for the area.

Best value in pinehurst area

Course is very good. Quite a few interesting holes. Ted the PGA pro owner was great. He gave us a good run down of how to play the course. Condition was very good for this time of the year especially compared to some of the neighbouring courses. We had a fun day

Great Value, Perfect Greens and an even Better Staff

This is the third year that we have taken our golf trip down to Southern Pines and the third year we have played Deercroft. This is the only course that everyone on the trip agrees to go back to. The lay out is awesome, it is never too crowded and the course is always kept in top shape. Ted and the staff have done a great job improving the course every single year. You will truly play every club in your bag. As awesome as the course is, what really keeps us coming back is Ted, Phil, Jennifer and the rest of the staff. They have gone above and beyond what is expected with every oppurtunity. We couldn't ask for a better experience that what is consistently presented at Deercroft.
