Deer Creek Golf Club
Played deer creek a couple times and love the layout and course itself. I gave them the benefit of the doubt that my first two rounds were busy weekends and can expect to be slower pace of play. However, this time I was 6 hours + into my round on hole 17 it dawned on me they never have Marshalls/rangers out enforcing pace of play. I'm surprised they ask for $68 on a weekend and not enforce such a basic golf policy. On the other hand, the restaurant had just smoked some pulled pork and that sandwich was legit. Our foursome will be going elsewhere to save our time but may stop in for some food next bbq day

The course is very nice for the beginning of April. Pace of play was very slow though. Front 9 took 3 hrs and back 9 took 2 1/2 hrs. Part of the issue was it was a nice early April day and every hacker was there. Also it was cart path only. It is still a great course and I will definitely be back.

Course was in good shape for March. Had a fun time playing. Course had several challenging holes with great views of nature and neighborhood houses. Highly recommend this course.

The greens were fantastic! Great speed, beautiful role, and the fairways were pretty good considering its right after the winter. The only down side was the pace of play was awful, we did not tee off until almost a half hour after our tee time. Then the time to play still took another 4.5 hours. But the course was fun and challenging, the bunkers were in great condition along with the greens. I would play again, but never if I was in a time crunch.

A fun course, but some customer service would be nice
Showed up for my 9:44 tee time in time. Was told every thing was good to go. BUT ....... every thing was not good to go. I was told that it would take 10 more minutes to get me out. A half hour later a group of 7 (3 some & 4 some) tee off. They did not want to include some outside the group. I hope the course charged them for the 4th spot, but I doubt it.
They were just winging it. Finally they sent me of the back with the first 2 some of the day making the turn. I waited another 15 to 20 minutes. I then filled out a 3 4-some when a the fourth did not show.
I guess they were catering to everybody. But not to me. Made it work, but the execution was lacking.

Cart path only...understandable...but stacked -up play with no marshal translates into 3 hours + to play the front nine. That's rediculous. Wasn't able to fit a 6 hour plus round into my day, so had to leave after 9. Not a good day at Deer Creek.

Sweet tough track
Deer Creek is one of the toughest courses to play in the Kansas City area. But it's definitely one of the nicest courses. This Robert Trent Jones design is always in pretty nice shape. I just love the lay out. The holes are interesting. The first hole is a tough dog leg left...it requires a long tee shot and then you have an uphill approach. But the second hole has a nice open fairway with a wide green. The third hole is awesome....long and then a tough green with a creek in front. It always keeps you on your toes. There are some fun par 5's and some long par 3's. Bring your A game and enjoy this sweet track.

Find another course.
Great course if you are not into playing good golf courses and are just out for a good time. The course is jammed into a subdivision, there is no driving range, the greens were in terrible condition. I was able to count seven other holes in view from the sixth tee box. Tight fairways running adjacent to each other make this a dangerous course. We paid about $50 to play, I would not pay more than half that in the future.
