What a pleasant surprise in the middle of the beautiful WI farm country. The course is a nice walk in the countryside. The first course I ever played that had a cornfield as the out of bounds area if your drive went a bit too far right. The greens, fairways and tee boxes were all in great shape. A couple of blind tee shots, but overall the course was very playable. My wife and her sister felt the course was very fair for women. Each hole is a little different. Spectacular views of the whole county after a straight uphill par 5 first hole. Fun clubhouse to enjoy a beer too.

I like this course because there are 3 different 9-hole layouts that you can play. I played the Ridge & Prairie courses. The course was in good condition & the greens rolled true. We got behind 3 foursomes on the back nine that were each playing a scramble, so it slowed down quite a bit. Overall it was an enjoyable round.

I happen to play DV a lot and always enjoy playing there. The course is well maintained and the staff is awesome. The greens are taken well care of, fairways meticulously mowed and tee boxes aren’t scorched. I would suggest bringing along some bug spray depending on the time of year you are playing. It also gets a little windy as well. Adam, John and Todd are great guys and are very helpful. Definitely worth the drive, time and money.

Everything about this place was unbelievable. The staff was incredibly friendly, especially the general manager. I was an out-of-town player from Ohio and yet I felt as though I've been playing there for years.

The course is stunning. Hands down the best course I played in Wisconsin, and I played 5 rounds, at 5 different courses, in 5 days. You can't possibly beat the value either. The driving range is immaculate and the greens and fairways were flawless. I'm a pretty "picky" golfer and I give Deer Valley an A+ all around.

For reference, I played this course a day before Hawks Landing and I regret not playing Deer Valley two days in a row.

I'd like to personally thank the staff for greeting me with open arms. I will DEFINITELY be back.

Some of the faraways we're a bit dried out but still very good. Played in July and some holes were soggy due to lots of rain but now they are in good shape again. Fun course to play. Pace of play great. Staff very friendly and helpful.

The biggest challenge may be figuring out what hole you're on. At one point, I couldn't find #9 Prairie and asked two ladies - they were looking for # 9 Valley. I gave up and played #9 Ridge, then went to #10 Prairie. My GPS was lost too. The course is very hilly, and has some long holes with steep drops, and also a steep climb on one hole. Lots of open space, but a few major hazards. Fun, but I don't keep score. Scorekeepers may not enjoy it as much.

The course was very crowded, unsure if there was a party going on or what. There was a group of 6 golf carts surrounding the 9th green screaming and literally having a party there. Was very disruptive to anyone teeing off on any of the other holes. Very disappointed. Saw a least four groups of six on the course as well.

The Facility has 3 nines that are laid out next to each other. this often lead to confusion as to where the next tee is located. signs listed hole numbers but gave no indication of the shape of the hole making it difficult to figure out where we were going. When 2 or 3 of the 9's had holes next to one another it took extra time to figure which tee box to go to and which green we were to aim for or where it was located

I had a very good round despite the weather. the weatherman was wrong again, it wasn't supposed to rain until mid afternoon but started at hole 2. i ended up playing super well on the back 9. i was driving the ball very well which is a bonus on this course. i love the elevation changes. great day overall although i was soaked when i was finished. It's not a super long course but is challenging. greens are in very good shape for this time of year

Deer Valley is a very scenic golf course that will offer some very unique challenges to any golfer at any of the tee boxes. The vistas from the top of numerous hills is equaled by the views from the base of the valleys. A must to play at least once to enjoy the play and the view. This would not be a course to play without a riding cart unless you like the challenge of mountain climbing. Staff was good and there is a snack bar/clubhouse.

I've played this course 3 times now and had a great round every time. The scenery is pretty incredible (especially the Valley 9), and the course has some really interesting layouts taking advantage of the hills and valleys. Conditions when I've played have been pretty good. Not country club nice, but well above muni, and for the price it is a phenomenal value.

Staff are always friendly. They figured out on their own that they overcharged me a couple dollars for our round and came and found me to give me a refund.

Great course, and for the price I don't know that you can do better.
