Fabulous course .Would play again for sure.

Our group of 13 PGA WAnnabes have played Deer Island in the past. Found its layout challenging and somewhat intimidating then and it was no different this time around. It is a true test of placement golf, sometimes only a matter of a few feet makes the difference between a well placed shot or a disaster. We all really enjoy play on the course.

Challenging course with a lot of water. Good condition for January.

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.

Very challenging layout that could use GPS for first time players. Fades and hooks will get you in trouble on many holes!

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.

The course was in great shape. It was worth the drive for the price. Our foursome will play for years to come.

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.

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.

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.
