Deer Run Golf Club
Would have to pay me to play here again
This course was terrible mostly because of the quantity and lack of class of other players on the course. I heard yelling during my backswing and had my ball stolen out of my own fairway twice.
Additionally - the course is in awful condition. Most of the cups were not fully cut. The fairways were pure mud. The rough was way too long.

Rough was extremely long
Have played here before and was never impressed, but the course has actually gone downhill vs last time I played here. Rough was extremely long which made it very difficult to find your ball if you weren't in the middle of the fairway. The 2 best things about the round were:
- saw 6 deer run across the fairway into nearby woods
- had the course to ourselves, which made for a nice leisurely round. sad thing though... a beautiful Fri afternoon and nobody playing here. Maybe they all knew about the condition of the course.

This course shouldn't have been open. There was a LOT of casual water, every shot was plugged. Driving range wasn't open, all greens were airated. We played the first day the course was open, owner admitted that the course was closed the day before our round, but she couldn't close our day because it "would kill them." Links course in the middle of a corn field. Go play somewhere with a higher elevation in early season.

Depends on when you play
This could be a really nice course but I don't think they have enough employees to keep it up to snuff. I play here quite a bit. Sometimes the course is in great shape, other times the greens seem like they haven't been moved in a week and the fairways and rough need some work. Other times, all is good. Granted, Iast time I played was mid-October and there were so many leaves you almost couldn't play. The lady in the club house needs to work on her PR. Rude is a strong word but makes you feel like you are simply in the way.

Played on the wrong day
Three days of torrential rain left course in soggy, wet condition.
Greens were still nice and drained well. Fairways were pretty mushy, course is fairly flat so drainage was a problem.
Staff is friendly and clubhouse is spacious.

Golfed in an outing. Staff was very professional. Very organized. The course was in very nice shape. The greens were running good. The food was some of the best I've had at an outing.

Deer Run on a Saturday
I feel they may be under staffing the course...the pro shop where you check in was empty, and 4-5 people were lined up at the bar getting drinks. After a wait, I came back and the person at the bar called me over to check in. Also, so fairways looked like rough on other holes. Finally, there was no starter and I had a 5 to10 min. wait on each tee box.
