Course is in great shape

Friendly staff., especially Jim. Waited out rain storm. Rain was much needed. Greens held shots and putted well.

Always enjoy this course

We had an enjoyable day playing. Green seemed a little slow. Course was in excellent shape. Only problem was a bad cart. Had to get a different one after 9 holes, but staff was very fast at bringing us a different cart and apologized several times for the inconvenience. Played on a Wednesday and course was not busy. Will play here again.

Over-watered, and under-mowed

It’s been 90 degrees roughly for the last 3-4 days, yet I couldn’t drive the cart through the fairway on the 10th because the whole fairway ranged from “casual water” to flooded. Also extreme amounts of no mow where golf balls were lost, including lost balls in ordinary rough. The “No Mow” has gone overboard and is not managed at all.

Please know that with the recent rain, we are working to get everything up to par and are working to recover the fairways from the water on the course. The current condition is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. We are going to escalate your feedback to our team so we can make improvements before your next game and will continue to work towards an excellent experience by using your comment for guidance. Thank you for playing Deer Valley Golf Club - Championship Course. We hope to see you again soon.

Golf now booking error

Booked my tee time two days prior to play. Drove an hour to play day of tee time and was turned away due to a previously scheduled company outing. Will not be back to deer valley. There is very little communication between golfnow and these courses. Save yourself the time and frustration and just book tee times through the course. This is my 1st of 2 poor scheduling errors that lead to me not playing day of tee time.

Sand traps

Leaves a lot to be desired. Given recent weather conditions they still need work. Overall a great course!

Decent course, deals available

My only complaint is the sand bunkers are more gravel than sand. Rough on the clubs.

Can let it RIP!

Course is very challenging, greens are fast but not too fast... sand traps need some work (after all this rain) but I'll still be back. Shout out the Rob (P-Town champion) and his brother Justin. Nephew and I had a good time playing with you two. Great chipping and putting, you two! Until the next time.

Nice course but stupid layout

The course is in good condition considering it’s been non stop rain here. Very nice tee boxes and greens. However the layout is incredibly dumb. You come around the club house after hole 4 or 5. Then never see it again until you drive back in on 18. There is no halfway house either. No cart person serving drinks. If I would have known that, I’d got drinks before or coming around after 4. So they lost out on some extra money. Friendly staff and good hot appetizers.

Wet conditions

The course was in good shape for the weather conditions. Wish they would have advised me only 9 holes were open.
