Fairways have only a few bad areas

Greens were cut flat but the invading grass clumps, even tho' cut flat will become an issue soon. Kill them ASAP, to let greens fill in open spots.

Have played here several times and will return, you must be able to hit the ball - can't just expect it to roll for the distance. Many times there is a hazard and you have to hit over it on the fly, many rewards for these shots. With the rain we have had, the water level is very high, some wet fairways also. Greens were good, fairways had lots of grass as did the tee boxes. Had to wait some on the front nine then the group quit, ouR game went much faster.

Better be hitting the ball well and online or you will need a lot balls to play this course... Its a little hard to off the beaten path but a nice drive out to it and really pretty golf course if you like views of water....Could be in a little better shape but well worth the price to play...

Nice layout with water coming into play on every hole. Errant shots will be penalized. Fairways not in great condition but acceptable. Greens somewhat slow but true. Some blind shots require knowledge of course to avoid hitting the ball well and finding it in water. Nice challenge and a course everyone should play at least once.

I'm surprised the pace of play is so good because you could stop and admire the view from every hole Course in very good condition and challenging. Price was very reasonable this time of year. Since there's virtually no drinking water on the course they should have a cart girl. Love the course and the experience. Will come back

Played the course many times in the past. It's been in better shape and in worse shape than this round. Greens were a little inconsistent with some rolling really nice and some a little slow and bumpy but overall a pleasant round. Fairways were good, tee boxes a little iffy. The beauty of the course is it's ... beauty. This is just an incredibly peaceful and scenic course, especially if the weather is good. Tons of water and wildlife and the layout is interesting and a good mix of easy holes ans challenging holes. A definite must play, especially if you score a HotDeal.

This golf course is one of the best in this area, fairways, greens, golf cars, and practice range are in pristine condition, really enjoy this course every time I played there, my only complaint is the mosquitos, please do something about it. I will continue playing here, but I must bring with me mosquito repellent. Ps: mosquitoes I only find them on the side of the fairway and by some greens areas.

I I took a friend his first time to deer Island, and was disappointed. I know we had a lot of rain but the sand traps were horrible I lost my ball in for sand traps the weeds were so thick . The rest of the course was fine the grass was long. It’s been over year since I’ve played deer Island, but for the price I would go back again and just have to stay out of the Sandtrap‘s .

Greens where in terrible condition, we used to play this course a lot years ago and loved it. Really is a nice venue, but the greens really were in tough shape. The three guys I took there were really disappointed and probably won't be going back.. I will when I hear it is back in good condition because I enjoy the course.

Travelled a long way to play this course and we were not disappointed, it was worth the trip. The course it’s self was both interesting and in good condition. The greens had just had some work on them but we knew this before playing. The staff were very friendly and made us feel welcome. Couldn’t complain about the pace of play we had the course to ourselves!

Great track and layout, played at the 6,800 tees, so got my monies worth. Greens were just pinched and sanded, which I was glad to see in a maintenance perspective, and I still made a few good putts. Traps were good. The Negative was the course is full of weeds, fairways, rough, all over the course, need to take care of this issue.

Hear, Hear. No grass was visible on the "greens" . Estimate two to three inches of sand on the greens and big holes punched all over. Hugh disappointment after a long drive to get there. Other than that the buggies are very nice.

not a lot of drinking water available on the course. be sure to bring your own water/sports drink

greens were being aerated which made for bumpy and slow putting, but it allows you to go right at the flag on approach shots

The title says it all. Course is a wreck. No water to drink on it either. Staff ruder than any course I've ever been to. I'm a golfer who golfs at least twice a week for 40 years and this was the worst experience ever. I will never go back the layout is really good....what a shame. Mud everywhere weeds in bunkers unkept. greens were mud.. buyer beware .the only thing g that was up to par was it had a nice range
