Nice course

Course was in pretty good shape considering it being mid February and the over abundance of rain. No sand in traps. Very hilly terrain. Course presents lots of uneven stances, even in the fairway. Several hole have pretty tight fairways and landing areas. Challenging but fun for a the average golfer.

Come-in round the mountain course

Too many side hill/side slope fairways to really be considered a good layout. Half fairways require a tee shot that misses to hill side and ball will roll off into fairway. Actually hit four fairways dead center and ball rolled off side of fairway out of play. Tee boxes needed mowing, as well as greens. Unfortunately hole five, guy actually came out and mowed green. Which increased green speed by 75% so putts previously coming up 5-6 ft short now rolled 10-12 ft past hole. Then four holes later greens were unmowed and shaggy again. Other than length, greens were decent bent grass with big patches of poana. None of bunkers were raked but they all had sand. Played on hot deals rate, - $20. It is not worth $40 normal rate. Quite a ways from Knoxville but probably worth drive if you get discount tee time and like playing different and unusual courses. There were several scenic views of Norris Lake from elevated fairways and tee boxes.

Horrible Course!

Worst conditions I've every played on. Greens were like Shag carpet, tee boxes had 2 inches of sand where you would tee off. Was the highest price course within 40 miles and was disappointing. Otherwise course had a good layout and staff was friendly.

Hilly

Beautiful surroundings and all in all a good course. Although obviously this summer the greens have been struggling so they were slow & kept a little longer. Yardage markings can be hard to see other than the 150 markings at times so bring the gps. The course is very hilly with extreme elevation changes in spots so even when carts are allowed on course expect to do some walking up hill in roughs and other places with severe slopes. The surrounding area & views make this place a beautiful course but bring “A” game & be prepared to do some hiking.

No Greens at Deerfield

Poorly maintained, confusingly marked and bafflingly designed, The Greens at Deerfield has to be one of the worst courses in the country, The course design wedges holes into a bizarre layout with an overuse of elevated tees and narrow landing areas. The greens at present are a travesty. The signage is not helpful. I cannot recommend this course. I'm grateful that I'm only out 20 bucks. Disappointed.

Worst greens EVER

Playing golf for the last 17 years, This is by far the worst greens I’ve ever played on. The ironic thing, this course being called The Greens at Deerfield is hilarious and a slap in the face to anyone that plays this course. The practice putting green was in decent shape, so how can they maintain it and not have one green on the course that was not dead. Not a single one. Please don’t waste your money or time going to this course,

Unfortunate Timing

Course lay out very nice. Greens in horrible shape due to aeration and hornets buzzing all around. Thousands of them on every hole except for three holes. Luckily no stings but ridiculous. Maybe just this time of year? Not sure. Course lay is beautiful with incredible views. If conditions were different would have played again during my week stay on Norris lake.

Nice course

I've been playing this course for over ten years. For the past three years owners are striving to make this course for average golfer more friendly. Pick your tees carefully because it will kick your butt.. Great course with some very tight fairways. I do hate 3 holes on this course. They are #9,#10, and #17.

Unique Great Shape Fun

went thru Golfnow to book. always a plus.

First, Justin at the counter was super nice and helpful. i had never been there before and he gave me a rundown of the course that was surprisingly accurate. i felt right at home from the start.
Second
the course runs beside the river and flows up and over the side of a large hill. it is mostly cut thru the hills, but the holes at the river were unique and fun.
this course was a breath of fresh air compared to the other courses in east tennessee that are straight forward and ordinary. depending on your skill level, you can decide to tee of over water or play forward and not take the chance. par 3’s were accessible, but gaurded by banks or grass bunkers and not always with your boring bunker. trees lined most fairways with trouble on one side and bail outs (banks) on the other. there was this one par 4, 16 i think, that you tee’d off from the top of a hill. you could see out towards the river and deer crossed the fairway as we started to tee off (incredible view of most of the golf course).
there was a great grill at the club house.
clubs, hats golf balls and your usual clubhouse amenities were available.
Finally,
this was no course to walk, but a must play if your in east tennessee. i was very impressed. every hole offered something different.
i think justin’s last name is roundtree, if you call or go, give him a shout.
