Rotten weather on a great course

Misty, rainy day at Deer Ridge. This is one of the best courses we play. Back 9 a little repetitive, but that is my only complaint. There also have the best bratwurst on their grilll

A great round, nearly ruined by slow play

Course is excellent, with very challenging greens. Pace of play terrible for We'd. Afternoon. Four groups had the entire course backed up. Took nearly 3 hours to play the front. Told the shop about it, and was told "we have a lot people here today." Not true. We went back and played the front a second time in 90 minutes. We would have been here nearly 6 hours otherwise.

This is a great course, don't ruin it by allowing slow play.

Challenging

I was referred to this course from a couple buddies that had played here multiple times in the past. I was very surprised at how challenging it was from the start. It rained early in the morning, but was dry the whole afternoon. The course started slow and wet, but once it heated up the greens were super quick. Clubhouse was nice and those there were friendly. Cart didn't have a scorecard or pencil on it coming from the barn. Most tees weren't flat and the ball was always above or below my feet. Greens were the toughest part of the course. No complaints here, but I misread putts all afternoon to break the opposite way which is not normal for my game. I paid $28 to ride as a single, and played in about 3.5 hours after being held up by multiple foursomes in the final 4-5 holes. Overall, really fun, challenging course and would play again in the future. Shot 45-39 for an 84 from the blue tees.

Bad course management

Played today and the course had a outing scheduled before my tee time. They NEVER came out to check the pace of play, and allowed the outing to back the entire course up...9 holes holes took over 3hrs, and the course seemed to worry about the wedding going on instead of the golfers on the course...was only willing to give a 9 hole rain check, or play the front 9 again ..even after we drove over a hr to play the course. Instead of sending someone out to regulate the pace of play....Who's going to drive over a hr to play 9 holes...smh
Love the course, but wont waste the time to drive back over a hr to play again after today, was a waste of money and time...

A best kept secret!

This course has everything, in terms of challenge and quality, for all handicaps.

The quality of the course, the carts and equipment, and the restaurant are first rate.
I would recommend this course to all.

It's worth the drive

No one in front of us, no one behind us.....life is good.

The course was in great shape. The greens were excellent. Each shot and each putt was a challenge; most enjoyable adjusted 97 in recent memory.

Enjoyed the round

I met my son halfway between Cleveland and Columbus. Found this course on Golf Now. We were both amazed of the layout and the condition of this course. If anyone says Ohio is flat needs to play this course. It was extremely challenging with lots of blind shots. The greens were in great shape. We are already planning our next meet up halfway and this will be the course.The staff were freindly and helpful.
Look forward to playing again.

As nice of a public course as one could find.

Everything about Deer Ridge is top notch, GPS, an excellent brat at the turn, and a 3 hour round. Course is impeccable, very well manicured, with a lot of workers on the course. Greens are large and rolling, yet roll true. There are multiple tees , so all can find a reasonable tee to play from. One of the best courses in Central Ohio.

Poa Annua Issue

Ive always liked this course with very two different sides but i have to say i left a little disappointed this time. Ive never seen the poa annua on the golf course this bad. Every green was affected pretty harshly. I know it was a rough winter and ill be back soon to see if they have remedied the issue. Great design and usually great conditions.
