Located in Callahan, Deerfield Lakes Golf Course is less than 10 miles from the Jacksonville International Airport. Its convenient location also makes it accessible from all of Jacksonville, as well as Amelia Island, and South Georgia. The 18-hole layout is player-friendly, providing a good round for all players despite handicap or skill level.

Deerfield Lakes Golf Course's well-manicured greens are medium in size and the lush, inviting fairways are average width. Although it is a forgiving golf course, water hazards come into play on sixteen holes to add some difficulty. There are also bunkers strategically placed throughout to keep golfers from taking the course too casually.

Deerfield Lakes is a laid back muni which is a perfect place to practice your game. Greens are starting to transition but fairways are fine and the ball rolls true on putts. Going to be a shame when this course no longer exists

If any golfer who are looking for the best value, quite, not crowded, and to have a good time with bodies, this is the one. The course lay out good, not difficult for recreational golfer, and this golf course is best one for the buck in Jacksonville, FL area.

I really enjoyed playing here at the first time. and strongly recommend it.

Course nor greeens were NOT iin good condition. Hole were way to close for safe play. Were one fairway ended, another began. Tees are close proximity to the previous green, making errant approach shots bounding off the cart paths while you are teeing off. Cart died after 13 holes. Greens terribly burned out, a lot covered with sand. Extremely disappointed.

Played this course for the first time after finding it online. The staff was excellent and very friendly. The golf carts were well maintained and responsive. The course however was not worth the drive. The fairways had very patchy grass, a lot of dirt spots and were very hard. The greens were inconsistent in grass height which made putting and chipping difficult to judge distance. There were several fairways that contained large pine cones that stopped shots from rolling. There are better courses around for the money.

This a no frills course. Open, flat course. Greens need attention: bumpy, inconsistent, brown fast patches and slow lush green patches. Very good value, but not a 4 star.

I have been playing golf for almost two and a half years and this was the worst day of golf I ever experienced. If I could rate this course lower than a one star I would rate it (-5). First the practice range was close, Cut grass was left in the middle of the (brown) fairway, so even if you hit the fairway your ball may still be lost in the dead grass. The greens were punched and sanded and in very bad shape. This golf course should taken off of Golfnow to save the reputation of this golf sight.

This course is only average but is a good value. We played on a day when there had been little rain the previous days and the course was dry. It was the day after a holiday and we (twosome) played at our pace, finishing in three hours. Overall we enjoyed the round, the staff was friendly, and will play there again.

Bought a 14$ tee time on golfnow not knowing what to expect and showed up to a friendly staff with an uncrowned course. Finished 18 in under 3 hours playing with me and my dad. The course is wide open and in decent shape the fairways are average but the greens are small and really well Maintained. A great course

They had just aerated the greens and added a lot of sand. The course has come a long way in the last year. I'm glad they are finally putting effort into it. Still needs work, but it will come in time. Great course for the price.
