Pleasant Surprise

Very pleasantly surprised to find such a nice golf course and community a little off the beaten path. Easy to get to though. Beautiful clubhouse. Fabulous bent grass greens. Such a joy to be able to putt consistently compared to all the mini-verde you have to play on nowadays. Cart paths were exceptional. Hole layout and distances were well marked. Most holes are rolling and fairly open but a few tight shots here and there. Will definitely come back again.

This course is fun and challenging

The tee boxes were in great shape, fairways had some thin spots, appears to be because of hard winter, Greens were in above average condition, ran true and were ssemi- fast. Will definitely be back.

Worth the drive

This course is one of the the hidden gems on Golf Now. Its in Shelby NC so it is a little bit of a drive from everywhere but well worth it. Nice range, putting green, and a very challenging chipping green. The views are nice and the fairways are mostly wide. Bring your short game as the greens are large and unjulating. If you happen to play on a windy day this course will give you all you can handle. Great value!!

First Timer

Staff was excellent and very friendly. Course was somewhat difficult due to the speed of the greens and especially with the sloping of "every green". Confused on several holes as to which way to go and even played to the wrong green on hole #17 due to confusion. No rakes in several of the bunkers and sand was not in good condition. Would like to try again in the summer when grass is better and greens are grown in a little.

Good Day for Golf

Great deal found on GOLFNow. I am ready to go back. Beautiful course that is challenging but not overwhelming. If I had to complain about something was that it took 20 mins for hotdogs. Next time I will Pay attention to the sign on Number 8 that recommended for you to place your order in ahead of time. Otherwise, a fine establishment.

Course is in good shape.

Greens are in great shape except for #10 at the front left corner and that is where they decided to put the hole on the day I played. Just wish players would fix their divots, not only here but at every course. Bunkers could use some more sand.

A True Test!!

Deerbrook is one of the nicest courses in the foothills of NC. Friendly staff, and excellent facilities. Be sure to bring your A game, as their greens are fast and challenging! A true test of any skill level!

Good Golf in December

This was our first time golfing in NC during the winter months. The greens were in very good shape. It was different playing in the dormant brown fairways. Just a different look and feel. This is a nice course with a nice layout. Would like to play in the summer months. I would recommend this course although maybe not for beginners

Great Day!

course was in terrific shape given winter conditions. While the Bermuda fairways were dormant the turf was easy to hit off of. Greens were perfect, quick and smooth. The course is generally pretty forgiving so it can be a fun day.

This course is in great condition!

Great course! Very challenging for all handicaps. I will play there again very soon. The staff seemed very pushy at tee time, but they were very busy and I understood. The biggest negative was paying 4 dollars for 10 range balls!!!

This course is challenging but fair, and in great condidion.

Have enjoyed the course both times I have played it The white tees are not too long enough for average players and the fairways are wide. The greens are in great shape but can be quite challenging.

Deerbrook

Played Deerbrook on 11/08/2014 and it was a beast. The golf course was in great shape for this time of year and the greens were smooth and fast. It was a challenge playing because their was so much wind and all the pin placements were put on the side of hills and couldnt get the ball to stop near the hole. On some of the holes when the wind picked up the ball would move when you would go to putt. But for $25.00 on a Saturday we had a lot of fun.

Great Value

Got a great last minute deal on GolfNow, likely due to possible bad weather. Worked out nice, as it was cloudy, but never rained. Course was wet after about 3 inches of rain over past two days, but very playable. Some traps had standing water, and were washed out, but this was understandable due to recent storms. Bent greens in very good shape and fast. Quite a few ball marks show on greens, but these are repaired marks and I believe they show due to significant play, and probably the soft quality of the turf makes repaired marks evident. Overall, these greens were a pleasure to putt on. I played it down in the fairways, except on a couple of occasions I cleaned mud off my ball. I believe that Deer Brook is generally one of the better values on GolfNow, and in the greater Charlotte NC area.
