Have played this course often. Staff is always freindly. Layout is great. Fairways were in excellent shape. Tee boxes were spotty but staff is addressing them to improve conditions. Same with greens. A great value. They are even offering a play all day promotion with lunch!

Deer Run is starting to shape up nicely. There are still some green issues but they seem to be working on that. Compared to 3 months ago the course is much better. Fairways are looking very nice. I went out at 1 pm and played in a little under 2 hours so that made it fun. I hope they can get all the greens up to par, pun intended. I have always liked the layout of the course. Tight fairways and trouble on most holes if you don’t keep in the short grass. Summer rates are usually pretty good. I don’t feel this course should ever be more than $20-$22 at most. Staff is friendly and they have decent burgers. I give th course a solid 3.75 with a good chance to be a 4 once the green get there.

I play here once every 6-8 weeks and have seen some improvements since my last visit in March. Fairways are the highlight, whereas the greens and tee boxes still need some help. Handful of the greens still have a long ways to go but all of them are still playable for the most part. Pace of play was pretty quick being midday and mid-week and very hot. Wasn't a big fan of being paired up since it was fairly empty but understand their need to save on the extra cart. Definitely worth hot rate, but wouldn't go over $20 or $25 until more improvements were made.

The greens and tee boxes are in absolutely terrible shape. The fairways are decent but nothing to write home about. They chardge me $20 for a round at 2:30 in the afternoon. That course at that time of the day should be about $10. You can go down the street and pay $11 at Casselberry and get better course conditions.

Tee boxes have improved since I played a few weeks ago although some are still rough. Some sand traps had no sand but understandable for all the rain we received. Couple of greens were sanded for aeration but most were pretty good. Fairways not as wet as I would have thought although there were wet areas to stay clear of. Weather was wonderful seeing as it had rained ten straight days but the rain brought out the green and the birds. Enjoyable day!!

Great clubhouse folks...was good to sneak out on a Friday to the neighborhood course. This course has struggled with greens for as long as I can remember, but there are signs of life. I'd re-do a hole. #2, put the tee box next to the pond on 1, add a fairway bunker or two and you've still got a legit 4. It's kinda weird to hit an iron from the tips and have a 3 wood home.

I have been playing here on and off for over 20 years. The course right now is in poor condition. Tee boxes are barren, you have a hard time finding a decent spot to place your tee. Greens have weed patches and dried out areas. Tee boxes on par 3’s have no grass, just green dirt. Areas around greens are dry and make chipping difficult. Fairways are a mixture of weeds and grass, very uneven. I was very disappointed to see these conditions. I was a member here for 5 years and the course was in better shape. Hate to see it this way since it is convenient and close to home. Restaurant has been good for awhile, good food, and reasonable. Hoping conditions will improve but looks like it may take awhile.

I have played here plenty of times over the years but I hadn't played here in a quite a while so I called and asked how the course conditions were before I made the tee time and I was told it was in "very good condition". This didn't surprise me because it usually had been - not perfect by any means - but very playable conditions when I've played in the past. The guy I talked to just outright lied. I don't expect courses to say "don't come here, it's in bad shape, go play somewhere else", but some honesty is expected. There are greens where there are large patches of dirt, sand, patched areas, even holes. Many tee boxes are a mess - just sand and dirt. If I had pictures I would have posted them so you golfers/reviewers can see what I'm referring to. I certainly don't expect PGA conditions, but I do expect the staff to be honest when asked so expectations can be lowered or I can consider playing elsewhere. Also, the cart girl drove past us three times without stopping to ask if we wanted anything...until the 17th hole.

The fairways are playable and the starter (older guy with glasses/white beard) is very nice.

If you want to play within 30 minutes of downtown Orlando, and aren't going to be picky about conditions, you can play here for $35 including lunch. Personally I'm taking Deer Run off my list of courses I play.

I play courses based on recommendations and reviews. This course rated good for the money so we gave it a try. I think the reviews were way to high. We had a mid morning tee time. One the first hole there there several groups waiting to play. A few groups asked to start on back nine to speed up the front and were rudely denied. The tee boxes were complete sand. The fairways weren’t much better. The greens were average at best. The food was excellent but expensive. For the money I would pay a few more dollars and play a better course. The cashier was less than polite but everyone else was very nice. There are a ton of courses to play in Florida and this is off my recommended courses. Good luck
