Deercroft Golf & Country Club
Have played here in prior years when it seemed more like a muni. Must say that they have some of the best greens I've seen in the area in the two months that I've been here. Hope the improvements continue.

A True Hidden Gem
The course is located in the middle of nowhere! It is, however, one of the best courses in the area for the money. The staff is friendly, the greens are great, and the view is nice. The ONLY minus would be the brown fairways. I understand it is that time of year, but other courses in the area shell out for the water bill...of course, that being my only negative thing about the course means if would HOGHLY recommend playing here to everyone.

What a turnaround
Had my first hole in one here in 2008 then went back in 2010 and was ashamed to admit it was at a course like this. Swore I'd never go back. Kept reading about the new owners and the desire to get the course back in shape so gave it a shot because of a discount coupon. Last Aug. played this and couldn't believe it was the same course. Honestly unbelievable the turnaround they've made.They should be proud this is in great shape. Now a must play.

Excellent course. Played my last round December 1, and the course was in great shape considering the time of year. Fairways still had about an inch of fluff to it so you can hit the ball with the accuracy you desire. The greens were amazing. All 18 (and practice) were in the best shape I could ever imagine. Tee boxes were nice and soft. By far the best course I have ever played. Owner Ted is such a nice guy. Staff members are just as quality. Can't wait to go back.

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
