Deercreek Country Club

Officials know Deercreek's Robert Miller-designed layout brings out the competitive golfer in each of us with its challenging carries, demanding doglegs and sentinel pines lining the fairways.
Great shots are applauded here not only by your playing partners but also by the wing-beat of snowy egrets, ducks and great blue herons. Fast and true, our greens rise like emerald isles guarded by bunkers and gentle mounding.
