Deer Valley Golf Course in Hummelstown boasts one of the most affordable rounds you'll find in the Hershey/Harrisburg area. Since opening in 2005, more than 850 trees have been added and it has matured into a course favored by both visitors and locals. The layout features large, elevated greens and massive multi-tiered tees. From the golf course's peaks, the views stretch all the way to Hershey and the Blue Mountains. The winding layout twists and turns, doglegging left and right. It's a challenging layout round despite the absence of sand bunkers. There is however, thick rough and a number of grass bunkers to watch out for. Water only makes a brief appearance. Deer Valley Golf Course isn't overly challenging but for a fun and fair test, it's an affordable option that also offers some beautiful scenery.

Always in great condition

I play 30+ rounds there annually. Always in GREAT shape, drains well, almost never any “cart path only” holes. No sand traps (probably a benefit for winter golf), but numerous front and green side grass bunkers. Super well maintained. Modest clubhouse, but very reasonably priced beer and hotdogs. Very friendly staff. Great value.

Amazing

This is a great course. Very well maintained. No sand traps. Just beautiful greens, tee boxes, and fairways. Every staff member was very nice. If I had one complaint it would be them trying to pair me with another group. But every golf course tries to do this. When I respectfully denied to be paired and said I play at a fast paced he let me go to play my own game. This place is a 5 out of 5. Going back there again on saturday

Great layout

Only one big problem. #'s 11 & 12 need a bell or something to tell players behind them when it's OK to hit second shot on 11 & tee shot on 12. Otherwise, great course.
