Deer Creek Golf Club
I love the layout, but the players before were not respectful to the course. Divots everywhere. Footprints in all the bunkers. Its to bad as it could have been an enjoyable round.

Will be playing it many more times. Twilight rate is phenomenal. Very friendly staff.

Mediocre at best
After reviewing Deer Creek's website, I was looking forward to a first class course and round. I was highly disappointed. The fairways were in decent shape, but the greens were covered in ball marks and seemed neglected by both the players and the ground's crew. Also, the course severely lacks signage. After exiting multiple greens there were numerous forks in the cart path with no signage to the next tee box. Please stick a simple sign in the ground pointing towards the next tee!! Furthermore, multiple walkways to the tee boxes and greens were dilapidated. Also, 40% of the cart paths had severe cracks, potholes and large pools of water due to lack of drainage and maintenance. The state of the bunkers was pathetic--large pools of water, several feet of Astroturf visible due to neglect in sand refilling). The course was challenging, but based on the lack of maintenance and groundskeeping, I will not return.

Greens were shaggy, but not terrible. Fairways were in good shape. Short rough, which is always a good thing. $20 for a round after work is absolutely unbeatable!!!

Same old problem
I've played at Deer Creek a handful of times and have always experienced the same problem. Not sure if they can't maintain a logical tee sheet or try to cram too many folks onto the course. Whatever the cause the result is always the same: slow, slow, slow. And this was on a Thursday afternoon! It should NEVER take 5 hours and 45 minutes to play 18 holes of golf.
On the positive, the course is very green and lush right now.

Only second course ive played since moving from Socal. Very challenging and fun to play. Only neg was it should have not been open for play after all the rain. It was a muddy, soggy mess. Will be back after it dries up.

Really wet - not the fault of the course
the course was extremely soggy, but with all the rain we've had it's not surprising. Course was the same as I remembered, greens could have been in better shape, lots of ball marks not fixed.

Soggy Conditions Understood, Poor Maintenance is Not
Previously, every time I played Deer Creek it was with friends and they booked the tee time. The course was usually in fair shape and playable. This time, when I came back to K.C., I wanted to book a time somewhere a little better than usual for my family's typical golf outing. We saw the price Deer Creek offered for a weekday tee time and couldn't pass it up. After playing the course, we could see why. The sand traps were beyond "under repair" and in full-on mud puddle status. Although there was heavy rain in the area, limiting the grounds crew's ability to mow in the fairway, the rough could have and should have been cut. Because of the rough length, we spent a good deal of time looking for balls that were only a few yards off the fairway. Plus, I don't think it is too much to ask to notify golfers on golfnow.com that the greens are still recovering from aeration. Lastly, it is not out of the realm of possibility that a supposedly top-tier course such as this would have drainage in the fairways. With a drainage system in place we would not have played mud puddle to mud puddle and the price I payed would have been worth it.
