Awesome value

Excellent views, great layout and awesome greens. If you can take advantage of hot deals plus some discounts, it is then well worth the price compared to other courses of similar caliber. Always come back to this course so that should tell you something.

Great course but…

Great course design and conditions! But could use some attention to detail… no starter, mediocre practice range, no practice green, no ball washers, no divot repair sand & seed bottle, no score card or club washer on cart

Fantastic Experience

Great, people, great golf course.
Halfway House was closed, and choice of beverages very limited.
Fee was a little steep.
Highly recommend playing at least once.

Cheers to Jake and Tuesday morning greeter

I was really impressed when Jake the greeter ( I believe his name is Jake) wiped down my clubs after my round, loaded my clubs back in my car, even though I didn't tip him in the beginning

My problem was i couldn't break the large bill I did have, as he brought my cart to my car and loaded my sticks when I first arrived.

The Tuesday early morning greeter is very personable as well. Well done, Deerhurst! I only intended to play once, but I came back a second time and it was worth it.

I do believe their clubhouse must open on Mondays. I would have loved a beer after my first round. Again, I came back on Tuesday, so I wasn't overly offended LoL

Nice track

Pretty wet but that’s not their fault. Would play again because I would know where to hit some of the blind shots. Overall a great golf experience.

Good golf

Golf was good. The course conditions on the day were very swampy but the layout and pace were great. We were told there was a place to get drinks throughout our round but nothing was open or available leading to a very thirty 4 hours of golf. Recommend bringing your own beverages when attending this course.

Great Course -

Have been looking forward to playing here for a while and the course did not disappoint. Stunning views, challenging holes, but amenities lacking due to Covid restrictions. Definitely would play again....but please add in some yardage markers! The 150 at least.
