Poor course pace and conditions

Took 5 and a half hours to play 18, there was no sand added to the traps. It was like hitting off concrete. Not worth going again. Wouldn’t recommend

Nice course, nice staff

Greens are always in good shape. Pace of play is almost always acceptable. Course was wet from the previous day's rain, but played alright.

Great Value Course

Hard to find a better value than Deer Creek. It’s long where you have to use all your clubs, the greens are in great shape, and the course is in good shape. Outside of the bunkers holding water, everything else was in line with what you’d expect. Had a great time and was pleased with the course and layout.

Great value, fun round

The conditions are very good, with the exception of the sand traps which are nearly unplayable around the greens. in addition, it seems as if almost no one repairs their ball marks at this course. Several putts during the round had to go through someone's unrepaired ball mark.

Nothing special

The course is fine, but having played other courses nearby recently (Balmoral and Tuckaway) this course didn't stand out. It is mostly flat. It was in decent condition. The greens were fine. I just was unmemorable. Great value for weekend but I won't be back.
