Course Reviews


Played here at least 10 times. Every single time I went, at least three of the greens were had dead grass patches. Every single time I went, the management gave me attitude, "Oh I don't know if we can get you out today...John, do you think we can fit them in?"
John: "Maybe, yeah I think only today though"
Manager: "Alright just book a tee time next time"
(I book a tee-time)
(Arrive at the tee 5 minutes early, in my cart ready to go)
(10 CARTS IN FRONT OF MINE)
Clearly this club has a misconception of who they are and who they are not. They think they are a ridiculously nice course that everyone has to play on. Wrong.
And the above statement regarding twilight rates, they DO NOT HAVE TWILIGHT. I will never be playing this course again in my life, and I sure hope that I can convince you not to.

edit: Agreed, ROUGH IS VERY THICK. Expect to lose your ball even if you know right where it landed. Steer clear of DEER LAKE!

A goat ranch only play one course with more different grass then this course

A fairly interesting course. Fairways are sometimes wide and other times quite narrow. Water comes into play on several holes Nice scenery. A little more difficult than an average course. Course has a bar with a good selection of drinks. Some of the greens could use better maintenance though. This course over all is well worth the money spent for a round.

The twilight rate is a great deal. My only complaint about the course is that one the holes (i think it was 12) had a chunky green.

Good golf course to go whack the ball around. Moderately rolling and wide fairways provide a decent challenge. There isn't a great deal of elevation change, but enough for those that want a little challenge. Only real cons to this course are the driving range (which is a good hike from the parking lot), and the putting green (which has virtually no undulation).

Wide open course. Bermuda grass not ready for good play in early April. South side of highway more difficult play.

I only play Deer Lake on weekends after 3. Their twilight rate is a good deal at $25 with cart.

A great course. The rough is thick, the fairways and greens are nice. Good food, nice people.
