Deercroft Golf & Country Club
Greens aerated 2 weeks ago, and were a little on slow side

There are too many better options in the area...
Several people had told me that the course was in great shape and playing great. I've been coming to the area twice a year for the last 20 years and had never played Deercroft, so I decided to give it a try.
I got a hot deal on Golf Now for $19. When I arrived the staff was extremely helpful and attentive. However, the driving range was a bad joke. I've literally seen pastures in better shape. Grass was two feet high and there was debris and heavy equipment strewn about the range. I also noticed that the smell in the men's room was particularly bad. This is a small thing, but just doesn't speak to an upscale golf facility.
Once on the course, (playing as a single), I zipped through the front nine. However, I caught a group in #10 that informed me they were part of a tournament with 4-5 groups. They suggested I replay the front nine or do something else. Hmm, nobody in the pro shop mentioned this. All the same, I wanted to see the rest of the course so I just took my time and played the back nine slowly.
The fairways were in very good shape. The greens had been aerated two weeks ago, (in spite of the fact that the course website indicated otherwise), and while they'd begun to recover the grass had been allowed to grow and they were very slow. But to me, the unforgivable sin was the condition of the tee boxes. They were terrible! I know they greens have to be aerated twice a year and I know the fairways can be tough at certain times of the year, but there is no excuse for bad tee boxes in my opinion.
There are so many great courses in the area that I just can't see going back to Deercroft. It certainly wasn't a bad day for $19, but I would have been really disappointed if I had paid full price.

Played this course for the first time on a beautiful fall day. Very Pinehurst like without all the uppitiness and overhead. Modest facilities but very friendly staff. Great layout. Challening but fair. Greens were in great shape. I was told this course was in disrepair until the current owner put some serious effort into bringing it back. It shows. Its about 25 min south of Southern Pines and seems in the middle of nowhere. But very worth the drive and a great value through GolfNow. A Hot Deal would be a steal here. I'll definitely play here again.

Best value in Pinehurst area
Staff was very professional. Course in great condition. A truly hidden gem in pinehurst area. Only thing lacking is a bigger more well equipped pro shop

I love this golf course!
My friend and I played Deercroft and had a great experience. The greens are second to none. The fairways were in great shape. The layout is a lot of fun. We had a wonderful day of golf and will definitely be back.

I have been making the trek from Ohio to the Pinehurst area for 10 years now in the late summer / early fall to play golf. This was the first time I ventured to play Deercroft. The experience was top notch all the way around. The golf course was in great shape. Greens were perfect. Awesome layout. The staff was friendly and made you feel like you were a member. We played 54 holes that day and enjoyed every shot! I will make this golf course part of my normal rotation from this point forward. Thanks to Ted, Christy and the rest of the staff for a great day of golf. Highly recommend giving Deercroft a try.

A great day of golf on a beautiful track!
My wife and I played Deercroft after seeing excellent reviews on this site. Ted, head pro and course manager, warmly welcomed us and gave us a brief course orientation. He has worked tirelessly with his family for 3 years to bring the course back to its former glory, and has succeeded with every aspect of the playing course. The greens were true and well manicured, the fairways in overall very good condition and the tee boxes in great shape! Our day was memorable after a boxer puppy with no collar joined us on hole 3 and rode in our cart until the end! Ted and his crew managed to return "Max" to his parents by sending a mass email to local homeowners. That's the level of care and kindness we saw throughout our day, and we look forward to our next visit! Thanks Ted,kristi and crew for a great day!

Staff and course the best
Staff could not have nicer and made you feel like you have been there a 100 times.
Real nice greens a little slow just like I like them.
Fairways nice only cart paths could use a little help.
Would recommend to anybody for a great play.
