We love this course. We go to Florida regularly and we always have to play here. It's one of the best we have played in the Orlando area at a reasonable price. Great layout with water coming into play on lots of holes which we like. Never too busy and the course is always in good shape. Staff are very friendly.

Deer Island CC is the hidden gem of central Florida. Great course conditions. Great places to eat afterwards. Try Jeramiah's. If you like 4-legged suit cases, there are a few big ones here! In the Mount Dora area. Worth the drive.

Love this course. It will remain in our trips for a long time. Most wildlife seen on any courses played over the years.

Hour ride from Kissimme but worth the trip. Staff was very friendly and gave us free range balls. Water on every hole but generous landing areas make the course enjoyable for all.

This is the best of all! Golf condition is good with lots of wild life to see. Birds everywhere and were very lucky to see couple of alligators. Very good services. Definitely will play again.

4th time playing this course. A long drive but we all thought it was worth it. It is a beautiful location on a large lake with lots of birds and gators. The course was in great shape as usual. We played 36 holes.

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

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!

Very nice course for the money. It was cold [47 - 52 F] and windy when we played - very difficult conditions. Was fun anyway.

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.
