Very enjoyable course!

Course was in great shape, tees to greens. Just the right length with multiple tee boxes. Carts were the best- course GPS, USB ports, and the most cushioned seats ever on a cart. 2 thumbs up for sure!!!

Nice fairways

Disappointed in pace of play on last 6 holes as two groups of 6 came out of nowhere ahead of us and really slowed things up. Up to that point we had a nice pace. No Marshall on duty and people need to learn to take better care of the course by replacing their divots. Tee boxes were really a mess from divots.

Great Round

We have played Deer Park a few times this year. The Course is in great shape. It turned out to be a very memorable round as I got my first Hole in One on the Par 3 15th hole. It was a great day

Course needs more signage

Very nice course but needs improved yardage indicators (painted stakes) for 100/150/200 yard distance. Pace of play affected by searching for distance.

Also should have better signage for holes that criss/ cross across parking lot

No garbage containers or ball washers on course is a unacceptable.

Nice course but could be excellent.
