I recently played this course. It was quite the challenge, but very enjoyable. The course was in fantastic shape. It wasn't too crowded which made the pace of play very nice. I am looking forward to playing again here soon.

I've played this course many times, and I was very excited to play it again. I read some reviews before booking, stating that the course was in great shape.

Upon arrival, the cart attendant was prompt with a cart, but not very friendly. The assistant/pro working the counter was very concerned with explaining to everyone how the members were not happy allowing outside play, and that it was such a great privilege to play here... I found these comments to be unprofessional and unnecessary, as he should have just focused on checking people in. If DCCC was so great, they wouldn't be on golfnow.com with open tee sheets.

There was a backlog on the first tee, which was about a 20 min delay. I found the course to be mediocre at best. The tees were thin, and the greens were about 50/50. I rolled my ball in the fairway on numerous occasions and drew some bad lies in the rough. Overall I was happy to be out there playing golf, but at $35 I must say that I wouldn't pay much more. Country club "life style" is only a memory from the 90's and earlier. The era of exclusivity and pristine grounds are only found in the upper echelon of clubs, such as Pablo Creek and Glen Kernan. To me, Deercreek is struggling like it has for decades.

The cart attendant when we finished was very prompt and courteous, and the cart girl on the course was very friendly. The inside staff was lacking. We sat down at a dirty table, and no one greeted us, even though they were all standing right there. One just shuffled chairs around. After a few minutes, the bartender took care of us and was very nice. There was a moment when our water glasses were empty and we wanted another round of beer, and the same waiter who was shuffling chairs earlier, walked in, took a look at us, and walked off without saying anything. He looked like he didn't care at all. They get 18% gratuity tacked on to the bill automatically, so why should they care?

Anyways, golf was fun and the experience was good, but the snobby air is a bit much for what the place really is. Another corporate club, budget starved with mediocre service, and a mediocre course, with some remaining core members clinging to a shadow of the glory days.

A 'touch of class' about this track and you had better bring your 'A' game to shoot a good score. The course is in excellent condition and has some very nice T-boxes that give players a PGA feel and look that is very satisfying especially from the 'tips', the shorter tees give the high handicappers.a good chance to shoot a memorable round if they can keep it in play. A tough course for beginners but if you enjoy a challenge, put this one at the top of your list when choosing where to play.

I liked that once I checked in, the range balls were included in the green fees. The course was clean, all sand traps were turned prior to the first start of the day and play was fairly fast. The Starter/Ranger was not around first thing in the morning, but made his rounds and checked all players on the course. He was informative with information as well as wildlife sightings, like snakes. Sad to hear that Deercreek will no longer be participating in Golfnow.com!

See above. A shot makers course. Love #9 where you must be on left side of fairway to get a look at the green. #18 a three shot par five is a great finishing hole because last shot has difficult carry to the green.

The course was in very good shape but tough on the old man.<br/> I should have played the white tee's instead of the blue. Getting over the marsh lands and water on the par three's was<br/> quite difficult for me. I would like to do it again but from closer -up.

I thought the value was very good. The only problem was the community front gate where the guard hassled me about entering. I was a Golfnow single. I told him I was there to play golf and he insisted that I needed to know the name of the people with whom I was playing or I couldn't enter. I said I had no way of knowing the name. He called the club house and gave my name but it wasn't available, I guess. After about five more minutes haranguing me about what was necessary, I mentioned that I got my tee time on Golfnow and he said, "Oh, OK. You should have told me that earlier." Gee, I guess I should have known.

The course was in good shape for late December. The greens were excellent. They were very smooth, rolled true and the perfect speed. I booked a hot deal so that made the value even better but well worth the regular Golfnow rate also and being a private club it never seems overly crowded. It was cart path only the day we played because of the heavy rain the night before had it not been for that it probably would have been quicker pace but the pace wasn't bad.
