Deer Island Country Club Reviews (26)

1/23/2014 - Challenging course with a lot of water. Good condition for January.
- Michael (Allentown, PA)

1/8/2014 - Well maintained course. It was quite challenging as the 2nd round of our trip with the amount of water coming into play, but I would certainly play this course again.
- David (Mississauga, ON CANADA)

1/8/2014 - Very challenging layout that could use GPS for first time players. Fades and hooks will get you in trouble on many holes!
- Rejean Boudreau

10/18/2013 - This was the second time we played this course. Pretty scenery and plenty of wildlife.
- Kathleen (Williston Park, NY)

5/6/2013 - Very scenic, excellent layout, some super par 3 holes.
Bargain!!!!!!
- William (Mechanicsville, MD)

3/16/2013 - Very nice course for the money. It was cold (47 - 52 F) and windy when we played - very difficult conditions. Was fun anyway.
- Greg P (St. John'S, NL CANADA .)

3/8/2013 - A real good test for us hacks. Weather did not cooperate so we didn't see as much wildlife as other years. Looking forward to next time.
- Terry (Mounds View, MN)

3/3/2013 - Worth the drive north. The course was in great shape with an excellent staff.
- Mark (Rhinebeck, NY)

2/26/2013 - The course was in great shape. It was worth the drive for the price. Our foursome will play for years to come.
- Mark (Rhinebeck, NY)

2/22/2013 - As part of our golfing trip we always go back to Deer Island. Very relaxing. Out of the way a bit but worth the drive.
- Gilles (Ottawa, ON CANADA)

9/12/2012 - Our absolute favorite course,anywhere. Play every year during my time share week. Play on weekday and you almost have course to yourself. We always play 18 in morning, have a very good lunch in restaurant and play another 18. Replay rate fantastic. One time a bald eagle had lunch and watched us while we played a hole. The scenery, layout, challenge everything awesome. Buying a house here if I can every afford it.
- Bill Stires, Phila. PA ()

5/11/2012 - Beautiful layout pretty shots played 36 holes long ride worth the trip.
- Edward (Providence, RI)

3/16/2012 - very challenging course and in great condition. it is a must play just to see the alligators and wildlife. Its a bit of a drive to get there but well worth it. We will return next year.
- Kenneth (Greenfield, IL)

3/10/2012 - This course is a very tough challenge. Would recommend for mid to low handicappers. Lots of wildlife and scenery. The course is in very good shape.
- Robert (Inver Grove, MN)

3/5/2012 - Great course. Well worth the travel

- Mike (Peoria, IL)

11/11/2011 - The best course we played over the entire weekend. Great inexpensive food and an excellent course.
- Gary (Jacksonville, FL)

4/7/2011 - Very challenging (132 slope). Water and sand in play on every hole. It felt like every stroke. 2nd time for our group and worth the return trip.
- Dale (Flushing, MI)

3/24/2011 - Deer Island, is a course out of the way which is worth traveling the extra distance to get to. It is a great course where you WILL see Alligator's and snakes, what a great nature escape.
- Tom ()

2/28/2011 - An enjoyable course that our group must play every year. Water on every hole makes it a challenge, however.

2/28/2011 - Always a fun place to play, and we visit every year and will continue unless surcharges get out of line with other area courses.
- Mike

2/25/2011 - We enjoyed this course even though it was a bitterly cold day. Obviously lots of water and a challenge but not too much for me as a 19 handicapper.
- Sarah (TW17 8lt Shepperton, UNITED KINGDOM)

2/18/2011 - This course is a favorite for one of our players and is actually a good layout but well off the beaten path from our location near disney.
- Ted (Normal, IL)
