Type Public
Deer Creek State Park Golf Course is an 18-hole championship course that is one of Jack Kidwell's many designs. On this course, Kidwell, an Ohio native, utilized the scenic natural landscape of mature trees and native Ohio Bluegrass. The course has a gently rolling terrain but it is still easy to walk. The diverse layout has four par 3s heavily guarded by water and trees, 10 lengthy par 4s, and four par 5s. It is a formidable test of your shot-making and course management skills. The long fairways are lined with trees and the challenging greens putt smooth and true. Throughout the golf course there are more than 50 strategically placed bunkers and ten ponds coming into play. In addition to the course, Deer Creek State Park also offers a driving range, practice bunker, and chipping area.

Nice course for everyone

Started playing the white tees. Too long for my aging body. Moved to the yellow and it was just right. The course is well kept and a nice layout.

An above average state park course

Good: pace of play ,only 3 hours. Carts have club washers with soapy water, a nice touch

Bad: ridiculously long at 6,600 yards, red tees at 5,600 yards. Virtually all par 4s are 380 + yards, par fives all over 500 yards. Senior tees are just 5 yards longer than the ladies tees. If you can't drive over 200, forget about reaching the green in regulation. Fairways a little long also, negating any roll.

Most of the par 4s are soft doglegs. Not a lot of variety of holes. A good hot deal of $10 was the highlight. Course is worth that, and a little more, but, that's about it

Nice State Park Course

Ohio has some of the best State Parks with golf courses. Made sure to play this course while we stayed at the cabins. Nice challenging layout. Greens and fairways nice. Course in good shape for mid October. Played with my 13 yo daughter and pace was good. All the staff we met were very friendly. Recommend you bring your clubs if you are staying in the park or nearby.
