We have played this course multiple times over the years as my in laws live close by and have always told people to play it if in the area. I’m not sure I would recommend it right now. The smell in many areas of the course in many areas was almost unbearable. The smell of sewage or dying vegatation near all the water holes was distracting at best.

The biggest difference in what I saw was the speed of the green. Extreamly slow and left unusually long and hairy! In past rounds this was the highlight of the course in that the quality of the greens was the best in the area.

Hoping both issues are temporary and corrected on my next round.

Course was in great condition. I thought the greens and fringes were artificial they looked and felt so green and plush. Fairways, tees, and sand were well kept too. Will play again if I'm in the area.

Not the first time playing here, however I was surprised that my tee time was a shot gun start.

Greens are true and the course is in good condition.

The course was in super condition and considering the effects of the recent hurricane was better than anticipated.

Got a good deal with golfnow and will keep looking for future deals.

We play it whenever we can get a deal,and are never disappointed

First time playing this course and right from the time I entered the pro shop I knew it wasnt going to disappoint. Great bang for the buck and friendly staff. The little things really add to it like having towels in carts for you. Ipads to keep score. Ice makers and water every few holes for hydration. Absolutely a great experience.

First time playing courses in the Sebring area, and I thought this was one of the better courses. Fairways are plenty generous. Greens rolled nicely, and held a good shot. We played the Turtle course. Foursome of guys two groups ahead took a full 4 hours to play, so being in just a twosome it felt especially slow.

Played Deer Run 6 times and Turtle Run 4 times between February 4 and 10, 2017. Best value I ever had playing in Florida. Greens were outstanding and fairways were good. Turtle course is more visually pleasing and Deer more difficult. Played both at 6000 yds, Pro shop staff were great especially Kay. I would definitely go back.
