The course is definitely a challenge for all. It has sand, water, trees and some narrow fairways. The greens are large and in excellent condition.

Where is the sand?

Deer Creek is a great course - fun, tough lay-out. Lots of trees and water carries. The only knock is that of what has to be close to 100 bunkers on the course, none of them have any sand. They are like mud pits. I have the same knock on Prairie Highlands - all mud and no sand. Great Life needs to fix this to keep these courses at the top of the KC must play list.

Nice course and layout

Deer creek is a very nicely designed course, with rolling hills, treed fairways, and well bunkered greens. The fairways were in great condition and the greens, while looking alittle beat up, rolled nice. The staff acted as if you were intruding on their turf, less than pleasant to say the least. But if you can get past that, it would be a course I’d definitely recommend.

Nice couse, but...

Deer Creek is a nice track, however I likely won't go back. The rough, fairways, water hazards, and greens were in pretty good shape. The problem is the sand traps. I know maintaining a golf course is expensive but if running a golf course is what you want to do then run it completely. The bunkers are ridiculous. They were completely unmaintained. Weeds growing in them. Unranked. Mostly unplayable. The starter told us to just play it like a ground under repair situation, but if that's the case, then lower the course rating. The bottom line is that it could be a nice municipal course. But as is with those sand traps, it really is a poor example of a golf course. Too bad.

Great layout but another Great Life course gone to crap. Bunkers unplayable and greens in fair shape at best. It’s a shame!

Very Nice Course

Deer Creek is a very nice course. Interesting layout and beautiful setting. Sand traps need work and it would be nice if they had a practice range.

If you reserve DC on golfnow be sure to bring a confirmation

Booked the tee time with GolfNow even though I called before and they told me Deer Creek was now a PRIVATE course. When i show up for my tee time to check in, the attendant asked if I was a Great Life member, I am not. He informed me one of my group must be a Great Life member in order to play but none of us were. NOT SURE HOW/WHY THEY ARE STILL ALLOWING TEE TIMES ON GOLFNOW IF IT IS A PRIVATE COURSE. I was told I could golf but i must pay the Guest Fee of $60 instead of the $39 Hot Deals rate that I booked. But he finally looked at his system and found out my rate was prepaid. Nowhere in the email I got from Golfnow does it say "Prepaid".

If a course is so-called "Private" why are tee times being offered on Golfnow?? And if I am able to book a time at your course why am I being given the third degree when I show up for my reserved tee time?

I used to play this course all the time before it went "private" but that will be my last round at Deer Creek.

Not worth $65

95% of the bunkers are unplayable. They are either washed out completely, full of weeds, or as hard as a baseball diamond. The greens are in good shape but the tee boxes still need work and someone needs to really trim most of the trees back from the tee boxes. They have become overgrown which cuts off most of the angles into the fairway, and does not allow for the grass to grow. There are no marshals so if you get stuck behind slow players...which you will you are more than likely in for almost a 5 hour round. Pace of play here should be 4 hours or less. Very limited beverage cart service even on the weekends, and the guys in the pro shop do their job but are not the most friendly.

Decent course, needs a little attention

Overall a nice course and a decent price but I will say the bunkers are garbage. A little TLC would go a long way. Course itself is challenging enough but not overwhelming.

Great life claims another one

It’s probably been 4 years or so since I played this golf course, not near as nice as the last time. My experience has been when Great Life takes over a golf course the quality of the course starts to worsen. I can see it starting here. Oh yeah, didn’t see a drink cart till the 18th hole. That sucked.

How did you almost get hit here? Was it the group behind you hitting into you? Did you call the Golf Shop? From my experience whenever you contact the golf shop with issues they are good at responding especially.

Great layout, poor condition

Played 4/20/2018. Great RTJ layout, unfortunately the course is a mess. Half the bunkers have no sand, the other half only partial sand. Absolutely no landscaping unless you like weeds and dandelions. Condition reminds you of a $20 muni. 2 two somes were behind a very slow four some.and we NEVER saw a marshall. Green fee for this condition is WAY out of line. Find somewhere else to play.

Did you call the golf shop about pace of play? My experience is if you call the golf shop they can help speed up the pace of play.

Challenging but worth it

I’ve played deer creek about 5 times this year it’s a challenging layout lots of trees and trouble if you aren’t accurate with your shots and the greens can be really fast and hard to read sometimes. The course rewards focus and course management. I played Tuesday 12:10 with a $25 hot deal tee time it was a blast, pace was great, and weather was great.
