I hate to write this because I don’t want them to raise the price, but you can not find a better course for the price - anywhere.

$40 with a cart on a course like this is unheard of. It is difficult with enough variety to keep you interested. If the course wasn’t right on the highway it would be over $100.

Best value around- course is in immaculate shape and getting better each time I play here. Staff is friendly and efficient. Practice facilities are small but terrific. I really want to thank the course staff, especially the grounds crew for making this course what it is now. Deer Creek is a great layout, even when its crowded the pace flows well - did not have to wait to take shots. I am so grateful and consider this my favorite go to course. Thanks Deer Creek staff! Also - a joy to see a coyote and all the birds. Perfect blend of mountains, wildlife and golf close by! Please do keep up the great work!

I am fast growing in love with this course that I did not play as I thought it was simple, not a bog deal mini. It is darn fun, lots of interesting holes, some good length, indeed a challenge but, fine for the average player also if they T it forward

Played here many times and just gets worse. 3 hours to play the front 9. Guy in the pro shop was rude and too busy to answer basic questions. Way overpriced for the course and delays. Plenty of other places to play for less and have a better experience.

Nice layout and in good shape for early April. The back nine have a lot of carry shots so beware of your yardage’s and bail out areas or you can rack up a score quick

I’ve played this course 3-4 times and I enjoy it very much. This course is challenging yet doable. With 5 sets of tees you should be able to play to your handicap while enjoying your round.

Living a little closer to DTC this gem surprised me when I first played at Deer Creek in June. Its a beautiful course in the Summer time, and with Winter well, its Winter, what do you expect.

Staff are always kind.

Challenging in someways, others not. Back Nine'll kick your rear, if you let it.

My husband and I love to golf at Deer Creek. We recently purchased their membership and we are excited to call it our summer home. Course is in great shape for February but sad to hear about the driving range. Pace of play was a bit slow but course was packed before the snow hit.

Love the course in incredible condition for Colorado in December. Pace of play is way to slow. 4 hours 30 minutes on a Tuesday in December stinks. We waited on every shot through out the round

Definitely not what we experienced! GM was wonderful and very helpful when we had booked our tee time for the wrong day. Some people just have bad days.

Went out on a gray day at 4:00 with my teen son. Saw only one group 2 holes in front and one group 2 holes back. Greens are true. Hard course from the back. I don't know who else plays here, but I spend a lot of time fixing an extra ball mark or filling in divots. It seems someone hit from the 3 green to the 5 green, probably a good 6 iron and left two divots in the green.
