Love this course. Beautiful views and neat layout. Greens are superb. Couple problems. Seems they are doing the bare minimum in maintenance to stay a float. Every bunker was unplayable and it was clearly due to lack of maintenance. Hadnt rained hard enough to wash them out in months. One par 3 on the front had us teeing off on artificial turf mats. Either reshape the tee box to make it work or abandon it altogether. Rough is pure weeds for the most part. Love this course and will play again. Glad they focus on the most important areas but hope theyll start investing some time and money in a few others.

a favorite course at the Lake

What's not to like about this course...one of our favorites at the Lake. It does play long, so you might want to drop down in your tee selection. It is in great shape and there is a lot of variety. Friendly staff.

Much Improved Course Condition

I stopped playing this course a couple of years ago due to poor fairway conditions and inconsistent quality of the greens. I decided to check it out today and was very pleasantly surprised. Greens were in good shape and rolled true consistently. The fairways were vastly improved from previous experiences as were the tee boxes.The rough continues to penalize errant shots due to its variety of and length of the grasses you would find yourself in if you happened to stray.
The various staff members I interacted with today were incredibly pleasant and appeared to take pride in their work and in the course.
I will most assuredly return and bring guests.

Fun Course, Great Views, Average Conditions

This was my first time playing Deer Chase.

Course is very scenic with some fantastic views from some of the holes which are at the top of the valley. The staff is friendly and helpful. ,
I was expecting better conditions of the course based on the reviews I read. The greens were great, but the fairways were long and shaggy. The tee boxes were in great condition. I just with the tree boxes and fairways were cut a little shorter as the grass on all the tee boxes and fairways was long and shaggy.
There are lots of elevation changes on the course which adds to the scenic views. The worst part was the sand traps as many were unplayable being full or water and very little sand.
Overall, I really had a great time and I liked the course. Not too challenging and you can score well.

Nice, quiet course tucked away in the Ozarks.

First time playing this course for our threesome. Very well kept course, with great views from the higher elevations. Greens, fairways and tee boxes were in great shape. Had first year golfer with us and the staggered tees worked well. Riley in pro shop was very helpful as our Golf Now reservation did not show up. He honored our rate. Plan on going back real soon...and likely often.

Fun course

Major elevation changes on some holes. Makes for fun layout, but due to rain on prior days, cart-path-only led to somewhat tiring round of golf. Greens were in good shape, but some of tee boxes were completely bare and sand traps were ponds. Very friendly staff.
