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.

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.

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..

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.

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.

Very impressed by the course. I played a day after very heavy rain and there were no puddles on the course. Lots of bunkers were flooded but I avoided most of them!

Excellent greens and quite true and fast.

Hard off the black tees but more fun off the yellows or whites.

It has a resort feel but very friendly and welcoming.

I cannot praise this course highly enough. I was given a round of golf here as a voucher for christmas from some friends. i brought a friend with me and paid the extra green fee. the course was in beautiful condition and quite quiet. the whole day was fantastic, from the guys in the pro shop to the course itself. Would come and play here again anytime!.

The course was great fun to play. Some interesting and challenging holes with a little water and good use of hills and trees.

Played during winter - only complaint is that course was very wet underfoot at parts including one temp green. Apart from that great course and would play again.
