Course review

Course was in great condition considering the weather and most of the greens were on, staff were great but course layout needs to be better the course needs clearer signage from 1 hole to the next other than that me and my brother had a great time thanks.

Gem of a course

First time at this course. Always wanted to play it and although my skills with the clubs are not the best and still a work in progress I really enjoyed my round. Nice variety of holes from a fairly flat opening nine to the more challenging back 9. Some really cracking views all round the course with some nice views looking over towards Edinburgh on holes 14 and 15. My favourite hole was the 13th. Blind tee off with a dogleg to the right over the crest of a hill. Staff were welcoming and helpful. Felt welcomed even though I was just visiting. Would recommend to anyone who loves the game to check this course out. You won’t regret it.

Great value

Had played the course many years ago, was surprised just how good a layout it was and will definitely be back to play it again. The greens had been cored which meant they were a little bumpy but to be expected for the time of year. Staff at the pro shop were very friendly and helpful. Overall great value for the money.

Arrogant member

Played this course yesterday great course and very friendly staff.. Can't speak of all member's but one member confronted us as we were playing up the eleventh and accused us of starting at the 10th tee which was not the case very arrogant and downright cheeky no wonder golf clubs struggle to attract new members when u have clowns like him!

This is a must play course

Played a two ball with a 7.30 am start. Course in great condition with very consistent greens. A good all round test of your golf with wide well kept fairways with well placed bunkers and a stream to navigate. Some long par three holes that make you think. Excellent value all round. We particularly enjoyed the ability to order a roll and drink on the eighth to collect on the way past to the tenth. The lady on the reception was very helpful and welcoming, even at that time in the morning. Do not miss this course it is a great experience.

Flat front, hilly back

Front 9 is fairly flat and with the hot, dry weather the fairways were cracked and the burns dry but the greens were in great condition. Enjoyed the back 9 more than the front as some of the holes played blind and were more challenging, plus the fairways and greens were pretty lush. Views from the top holes were great and the climb up was good exercise! Bunkers have good placement and managed to catch our drives and approach shots on a regular basis - only negative is that the bunkers don’t have good sand in them, just dusty, dirty sand with lots of stones. Pro shop was well stocked and staff friendly and welcoming. The course borders on houses and parkland. Worth a visit at a good price.

Ideal for intermediate golfers

Considering the very dry spell of late the course was in a fantastic condition.

The greens were immaculate, and very fast.

Overall a very pleasant experience, and great value for money.

Dissapointing

Played in Oct so have taken time of year into account for review. Paid discount rate (£14). Day was utterly spoiled by green staff dressing the greens with sand resulting in winter greens being played. Totally accept that we had bad luck in that regard but nothing on their website to indicate this was going to happen. My impression is that this course is an after thought in favour of the country club / leisure facilities rather than the 'championship course experience advertised. Sometimes it's the small things us golfers notice like bunkers not having a rake or excessive divets not being replaced by members. My crops for that day was being charged £14 to play winter greens on a course that appears to trade on its name rather than general course condition. (I've also played the course during the summer and it wasn't much better). Staff were very friendly. Course layout for front 9 is straight forward and passable. Back 9 has more interest. Won't be playing this course again and sorry to say that i cant recommend this to others.

Good Afternoon, I am of course disappointed to hear your experience at Deer Park wasn't an enjoyable one, I can confirm we update our website daily with the status of our course especially over the winter months. I believe bad timing has been an issue with our winter programme on starting a week previously. We have had great feedback on all course all year as you can see with below comments and of course would like you and your playing partners to have the same experience, please contact me on istoddart@muir-group.co.uk.

When courses go bad

No scorecard or update on course offered by pro shop. Some greens were covered in sand and you could barely putt, some were spiked and terrible, most were winters. No mens tee markers just play off the womens or boys? The condition of the course was very poor and it seems the standard of management has of the course has gone downhill dramatically. In the end it was a case of walking off. Total waste of money. Won't be back.

Hi Ronald, we are sorry to hear your experience with us at Deer Park was not an enjoyable one. Unfortunately our winter programme had begun the week previously which included our annual coring work on our greens and moved the tees up to reduce course length in heavier conditions. Of course this isn't the experience we want our visitors to have and unfortunately bad timing has played a part here. Please email myself direct on istoddart@muir-group.co.uk and I will be more than happy to invite you back.

Dear Pak

Most other clubs in the area offer about £12-14. This is slightly dearer but no better a course than many other neighbours.

Hard slog the back 9 and hilly compared to flat easier front 9.

Greens were in excellent condition as was course generally..

Great Course!

I tend to play here, there and everywhere and this was the best course I have played in a long time. Well maintained, coped well with the rain and perfect greens. Challenging but not too tough either.

Greens not great

Decent course but greens soft and didn't roll true. A little bit frustrating but to be fair there were a few showers on the day. Don't think that would have too much influence on the greens though as they drained fairly well. Bumpiness on greens caused mainly by footprints.

Great day at Deer Park

Thoroughly enjoyed this championship golf course. Great location just 2 minutes off the M8 and was so easy to get to. The course was in fantastic condition considering the recent rain and the greens were the best I have putted on this year. That's saying something as I try and play a new course almost every week! The views on the back 9 towards Edinburgh were also beautiful. I also absolutely loved being able to phone in a food order from the 8th hole and collected it from the bar after 9 holes! Everyone was very friendly and we enjoyed a drink and a bite to eat in the bar after. Fantastic value and my wife and I will be back.
