Local course

Course was in good shape. Traps were water covered and lacking playable sand. Greens were a little slow compared to previous rounds.

Great public course

Today was the first time in a long time that I had to quit after 5 holes because of slow play. I was alone, and caught up to a threesome, who wouldn't even offer to let me play through. I would have caught up to a foursome, who I'm sure would have let me play through. What happened to being courteous on the course? Hope I never run into people like that again.

Dependable and in great condition

Was able to finish 9 in under 1hr. 30 minutes on a Sunday afternoon. Course in surprisingly great condition considering the recent lack of rain. Had a great round.

poorly managed

we were not told about the league that started 90 minutes after our tee time so ended playing the same front nine holes so we were disappointed we were not informed.

Deer creek

Played on a Thursday. Pace of play was good even after 10:00 price drop. A lot of singles and doubles, unmatched. Fairways and greens were in great shape. Rough is fair, you could find your ball and hit out. Traps were in a strange condition - half sand and half dried mud. Sand was soft but dried mud was like chipped hard pan. Sand traps don’t appear to have been raked. Perfect golf day if you like 75, sunny, and just a hint of breeze.

I enjoy playing this course. You cannot beat the price of $25 to play. The only downside was the pace of play. It was very slow. Having someone on the course to help remind groups to keep pace with the group in front of them, would be helpful.
