Deer Creek Golf Club
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.

The course was in excellent shape in comparison to several other local courses, and you get your money's worth with this course. Water comes into play on most holes, and this course is definitely challenging.

Fun course design and playability.
The course layout is challenging but fun. Course sets in lowlands and was extremely wet. Carts were on path only which slowed the pace of play. Greens were a bit rough (recently aerated). Weather was good, so a good day to be out of the office.

Rained over night so the course was extremely wet and played longer than normal. Great layout with tight fairways, but not that long.
