Beware the Water… and Alligators

Admittedly, expectations exceeded reality as I thought it would be a much more picturesque course. But the course was okay and reminded me of a typical community golf course that winds through the neighborhood. While it’s a good value for the money, I’m not sure the value justifies driving an hour outside of Orlando to play with so many other options available. With that said, it is definitely a very challenging course with water - and alligators - everywhere.

Water on every hole.

Challenging course with water playing a part on every hole. The greens were hard and fast but fair. The fairways were hard also which led to some rollouts to some strategically placed bunkers. We enjoyed seeing gators, some swimming, some sunning and one walking across a fairway.

Fun layout but greens spotty

I last played Deer Island about 20 years ago, I think the routing has changed. But for a course that's in the middle of nowhere, at the $75 price point I need a little bit more grass on the greens, I'm expecting to putt on them, not through them. The rest of the experience was just fine.

Wonderful course.
Everyone is extremely helpful and friendly.
Favorite course we play when we come down to Florida. It’s away from the craziness of Orlando. Such a peaceful calm round of Golf.

Great Course

This a great venue and could hold it's own with many of the courses charging over $125 per person. We paid $75 and you can occasionally find cheaper rates on Golf Now. Would highly recommend this course!
