Long challenge but needs work

It can be a long challenge from the tips but really needs some tlc. Tee boxes need grass. rough is a little long. Greens are mostly flat but have many dead or rot spots on them. The layout itself is fairly simple just a few almost tricked holes. Need a map or take a drive to find landing areas. Doglegs are short off the tee and longer second shots in.

Not well kept

Grass was long, even after they mowed the fairways, there were long blades of cut grass covering the fairway, if you hit it off the fairway good luck finding your ball.

Poor Condition

This course is.a cow pasture. It was poorly maintained. The rough was very deep. If your ball goes off the fairway it tak s a long time to find in the deep grass.

Nice Course; heard they're closing it?

I used to play this course years ago when I lived nearby. Got out for a round on short notice. Course was in beautiful shape! Greens were a little slow, but it's not Augusta National. Super friendly staff, very enjoyable day. Understand Deer Run has been sold, and this will be the last season? Get out and play here before it's gone...

Long course

Pretty long course. Fairways are in OK shape but the rough isn't usually maintained,very easy to lose your ball if you don't keep it in play. Greens are slower than average. Not the most manicured place but there's usually some dirt cheap deals you can't really complain about.

No the coffees not free

Greens were unplayable, they had more sand on them then the bunkers, and there were no tee boxes set up. On top of the unfriendly staff, I'm sure there a lot of courses in the area to try before this one!
