Challenging!

This course is great if you're looking for a challenge. Narrow fairways, island greens, lots of houses around the back 9. There is little forgiveness along the edge of the fairway as the vegetation is high surprisingly high and there are marshy areas on nearly every hole. Greens were a little faster than I was accustomed to.

The course is laid out well and in really good shape. The staff was friendly enough.

I wouldn't play here weekly. But it's definitely on my list to play again!

Well worth the price

It's in it's correct price range. Good greens, good layout, some elevation change. An all-around good test of golf.

Enjoyable round!

Great course layout. Plenty of tees to choose for your handicap level.
The pace of play was the only downside. 4:45 was ridiculous for that course. Never saw a Marshall the entire round.
I would definitely recommend and play again.

Course is fun, challenging, and beautiful

I golfed this course for the first time earlier this year (2018) and really enjoyed it. The course itself has very pretty holes, great views, and is a bit challenging. I will continue to golf here as I love the layout. The only drawback is that the driving practice range is mat only and in very poor condition. However, the practice chipping & putting areas are nice.

Accuracy will give you a good score.

Very nice course.
Course was in very good shape - tees, fairways, and greens.

Staff was nice. Helpful in finding tees and getting setup. Have not played here for several years. Will go back.

Focus on staying in the fairways, especially from the tees. Course knowledge will help as there are a few surprises.

Starter told us to f*** off

The starter literally told us to "f*** off" when they messed up our tee time.

Great Course! Best value in Denver.

Deer Creek is in great shape. Best value in Denver. Course is long and challenging from the black tees. Greens are true and reasonable. Several long par 4’s which gave me a chance to use my new 3 wood. Starter and staff were friendly. Pace of play was excellent - nobody on the course Friday PM. Deer Creek is the best course for consistency - played here over 20 times now and always feel I got a great value. Never had any issues, never bored. I could pay three times more and drive three times further but why when Deer Creek is here. Thanks to the staff for making Deer Creek a beautiful place.

Solid Place to Play

I was visiting family and wanted a good place to play. After reading the reviews about it being fun, yet challenging, I booked my tee time. Course was busy, but didn’t feel crowded. I was able to play solo and finished in about 3.5 hours. I really enjoyed the layout and would definitely play here again!
