DEER CREEK GOLF CLUB (954-421-5550)
Florida Golf Course Review
Deer Creek Golf Club in Deerfield Beach, is a premier Arthur Hills championship design that has been recognized with 4 stars from Golf Digest Places to Play. Set in a luxurious
tropical environment, Deer Creek is noted for its exceptional course conditions and country club amenities. Large undulating greens, tree lined fairways and variations in elevation
give the course character and eye appeal. A 2 million dollar renovation during the summer of 2004 means that guests will be treated to even better playing conditions than what
were formerly available. The upgrades along this atypical rolling South Florida landscape include greens that have been renovated with TifEagle Ultradwarf - a strain of Bermuda
that provides smooth, quick putting surfaces. Other changes involve the rebuilding of 4 fairways, 5 tee boxes and the addition of new tee locations on 6 holes. Sand traps feature
new sand, and the drainage systems in the bunkers and throughout the course have been totally renovated. Improvements were also made to the practice facilities, which include
a grass range plus putting/chipping greens.
The 30,000 square foot clubhouse at Deer Creek boasts a Key West design and includes a 2,500 square foot pro shop that received an award as the "Merchandiser of the Year" by
PGA America, plus locker rooms with showers for both men and women. The Deer Creek Grille and adjacent outdoor patio present wonderful views, and feature outstanding
menus, and is open 365 days a year. Visitors will enjoy the waterfall patio and lush landscaping that make Deer Creek ideal for golf parties and receptions. The Key West,
Biscayne, and bridal suite rooms compliment outstanding banquet facilities that can accommodate groups from 30 to 300.
On course golfers will be pleased to find that state of the art GPS is standard on all carts, as are weather covers and windshields. Sprinkler heads are also measured to the
center of the green. Five sets of tees play in distance and slopes 7050 yards/135 slope, 6717 yards/130 slope, 6333yards/122 slope, 5918 yards/119 slope and 5300 yards with a
slopes of 127 for women..
Deer Creek has been called a "thinking man's" course and a fun layout along rolling hills. There are some long par fours and fives, with sufficient opportunities for driver off the tee,
however. The upscale conditioning and exceptional service combine with the interesting design to make this a very memorable golf experience - fair yet demanding, with greens
that are a joy to putt on. Arrive early, stay for lunch or dinner. This is Premium golf ...upscale...and highly recommended! Golf Magazine has rated Deer Creek as one of South
Florida's top two "Best Courses"!
