Deerfield Golf & Tennis Club
Deerfield Golf Club in Newark, Del., is a 145-acre public course, billed as a “natural treasure.” The 18-hole championship course gets the moniker thanks to its surroundings -- the ancient forest of White Clay Creek State Park. The 145-acre play, acquired by the state of Delaware in 2005, is a par-70, 6,323-yard golf course that features rolling terrain, smooth bent grass putting surfaces and scenic vistas. The mix of memorable, distinctive holes adds to the difficulty, as does the memorable, heavily wooded setting and dramatic elevation changes. Before or after your round at Deerfield Golf Club, enjoy the large putting green, full-service practice range, or lighted tennis and paddleball courts.

Golf Advisor: Top Courses in Delaware
All of the course personnel were extremely courteous and professional. Course was in excellent condition. I highly recommend that you play this course.
They need a Ranger on the course to police some of the Knuckle heads out there. It shouldn't be put on the golfers that are there for a relaxing round.
real challenging course
Deerfield is in great shape right now. The greens are firm and fast. The fairways are in fine shape and the bunkers are perfect. The elevation changes really add to the difficulty of the course. With the greens as tough as they are, even the short par 4's are hard to score on. The staff is great here and the pub has great food and drink. This is one of the best facilities in the area.
Annual Dads Day outing
First time playing our annual Dads Day outing at this course. Will definitely return. Excellent staff, course, and amenities. Highly recommended.
Course is in wonderful condition. Lush and green. Greens are sloped and tough to 2 putt if you are on the wrong place on the green. Didn’t have to wait on any hole. 4 of us played in well under 4 hours.
Crew and staff were Covid-careful and courteous. Course was in great shape- all in all, a wonderful Experience. Did not rate after round amenities because of current restrictions, but facility is beautiful.
Never had to wait
Played quickly about 3.5 hours. Greens run true but are fast,fast, fast. I seemed to be on wrong side on every hole. Fairways in great shape. Wish they would fix the Golfnow phone app.
when I booked with GolfNow They said it was 18 holes with a cart when I got to the course. There was no cart. And no pull cards either.
Great staff, course meh.
The staff here is awesome. They were great and totally accommodating and very hygienic re COVID-19. I didn't love the course. It is nice to have hills on a course but there were a lot of severe hills, blind shots, etc. Course condition was okay but not great. Bunkers were flat out bad.
I would love to play this course after the Covid 19 Virus is over.
Ear plugs please
Got there early. Course was empty.
Asked to go out as a solo. Denied. Paired with a non stop " I know this course better then anyone" talking person. Talked for 3.5 hours. He shot over 120 easy. Other then that bunkers were half n half. Half great, half horrible. Still winter. Can't wait for the season. Love the layout
Always a good Bang for your Buck
This course is well kept, very hilly and always seems to have that tee time open for the time you want when all else around are sold out.
This course is very challenging when considering the terrain of the course. I had a lot of fun playing this course. The course itself is in excellent shape and the staff working there are very professional and very friendly. This is one of my top 3 favorite courses to play in Delaware. I recommend playing this course if you have the chance, you will not be disappointed and will certainly get more then your money's worth.
