Nice course for the money but not too memorable.

The course is nice but kind of boring. The greens looked really nice but we're not running too fast. The back tee boxes were overseeded and haven't been cut in weeks. I'm sure they don't get too much play back there and want them to grow in nice and healthy. Understandable. The greens can be easily sped up and the tee boxes can be cut, but nothing can be done to fix entitled members. There was a member couple that gave me guff for asking to play through on 10. They thought they owned the place. Overall a nice course for the money.

Gem. Try it. You won't he disappointed.

First time playing here after always wanting to give it a shot. The course we played , Turtle Run, was beautiful. Being our first time, we were escorted out to #1 as they said it's about a 5 min cart ride. Beautiful layout but be ready as most fairways are kinda tight. Nice sports bar here as well. Cart lady saw her a few times. Had 2-3 restrooms on course with option to get a foam cup with ice and water as a courtesy. And the good ice too. We will be back for sure. If you are around Sebring or weary about the drive to here, do it. You won't regret it.

Loved it!

Challenging but fair. Fairways and greens are amazingly great. Some great risk reward holes. Came down early from Ocala for my sons golf tournament and played Deer Run will definitely be back to play again. Clubhouse and Staff were friendly and accommodating.

Wonderful day!

This course has the most friendly staff of any i have played. Very helpful and made me feel like a family friend. Course conditions were excellent and shots reacted as expected. Played both 18 hole layouts and both are wonderful.

Course to ourselves-kinda.

Deer was closed for aeration. Turtle had been done 3 weeks earlier. I was pleasantly surprised that the greens were quite nice. They were slower because of all the rain, but like with most of golf-make the adjustment if you can. I enjoy all about the Sun-N-Lake offerings. The only suggestion that I feel would really improve the experience would be more information (distances)on holes that have doglegs, creeks/ponds, blind shots etc. Not everyone that plays there, are regulars that know what to expect. There is a Par 5 on the back 9(#14) as an example. You can see water from white tee box on rt. but you can't see water in front of you but the very tiny image on scorecard tells you it is there. OK, how far to water? Fairways slope down to water, my rangefinder can't pick up any distances because there isn't anything to bounce off. If you don't have that feature/info on your Golfcart GPS, or on the scorecard you will be guessing. Golf is hard enough-just sayin.

Great Value for the Price

This is not a 5 star course, but it can’t be beat for the price. The course is wide open and very easy scoring. It’s a very old style layout, lacking in visual greatness. Greens have some subtle late breaks, I had a couple putts lip out. Greens in great shape and rolling about 9-10, so not fast, not to slow either. Everything else is in good but not amazing shape. There is NO complaints about visiting here. Staff was great. Food was great and very reasonably priced. We did not get to the range, but was available. I would recommend if you are in the area and want to have a good day scoring.

Worth the extra miles

We played the turtle run course and loved it so much that we booked the Deer run course 3 days later. Both courses were an excellent shape and the price was ridiculous for the value. We will definitely be playing again.

We actually played Turtle Run...

We started playing Turtle Run because of a Juniors Tournament on the Deer Run Course. Then, it started to pour and I lost my 5 iron into the pond between #5's green and #6's tee box, when it flew out of my wet hands, teeing off on #6. Was unable to retrieve it as it was just out of reach, in the middle of the pond. We could see the end of the handle sticking out of the water, about an inch. But, when I came back from the cart barn with some rope, it was gone. Hope to retrieve it before too long.
