Golf Course Information
Deer Run GC boasts a classic layout a very playable and challenging par 71 golf course. Approximately 6300 yards from the black tees, 6146 yards from the whites and 5040 from the reds - Deer Run GC has maintained the length of most classic golf courses. Though many modern courses can be stretched to 7000 yards from the back tees, too often this emphasize on length comes at the expense of shot making. One of the problems with the modern PGA Tour is that it has become a game of long driving and putting. We still believe in the joy of playing a variety of shots and the chess-like skill of course management.
Dont think that you cant use your driver at Deer Run (I use it on every hole except the par 3s). The layout rewards accuracy and intelligence there are many ways to play these holes. Classic courses emphasize the relationship between risk and reward many modern courses are considered penal layouts, meaning that there are no options and that the ball has to be hit to certain spots only. We believe that there are many ways to play golf: left-to-right, right-to-left, high ball flight, low ball flight, etc and that a good layout can provide a fun challenge to different styles.
But even an enjoyable course can be ruined by slow play. So we have full-time starters and rangers to insure a proper pace of play. We also have beverage carts and a call-box on the ninth tee for more substantial food to be picked up at the clubhouse (after youve hit your tee shot on # 10).
We have a nice practice facility: a driving range with target greens at 100, 150, and 200 yards, two putting greens, and green side and fairway bunkers.
