After shopping several venues for our Sons wedding. He and his bride-to-be chose Deer Creek. Following the choice, we negotiated what we thought to be a final price for the package deal and even had a locked in amount given to us (of course we were silly in thinking that the amount would stand as it was a verbal agreement given by people who are not responsible for what they say, this is in their own admitted word). Well, we should have scrutinized the entire process far closer and with more diligence. As we found out, the word of the event planners at the facility was worth less than Monopoly money. They changed up the pricing after promising to keep it at or below the dollar mark discussed (claiming that their contract stated what was necessary to relieve them of responsibility for what came out of their mouths, never a good idea) I have always been taught that what you say, you are responsible for. Sadly, that is not the case at this facility. At the event, we experienced a mix of ok & sub-par service, the very first item on the buffet for the guests was very solidly frozen shrimp, then we had to contend with having to hunt help down for a number of service related issues only to find them invisible for most of the evening, then the buffet was closed unceremoniously and early after the agreed upon service of remaining open until the event was concluded, leaving several late arriving guests unfed, then the items that were supposed to make an appearance - namely chocolate covered strawberries, never even showed up, none.....Then we were billed for double the amount of the main meat course and of course, you guessed it, it never was served......All-in-all, not a failed event, but nowhere near what a childs wedding is or is imagined to be. I would suggest before booking this venue, you look elsewhere first and wherever you go, make sure you protect your investment and your memories with an attorney reviewing the paperwork and an ironclad agreement that you personally make sure is executed as agreed upon to the satisfaction of all involved. Whatever you do, do not count on a verbal agreement or a handshake with people representing this venue, they have told me they are not responsible for what comes out of their mouths as they do not remember anything they say beyond a few moments of having spoken it, those items are like everything else today, fleeting and undependable. I hope any and all of you reading this post have a better experience than our family did and wish you the best in your event.

We had an amazing Valentine’s Day Dinner last night at the Golf Club and I just wanted to share my experience. We made rather late reservations, 8:00pm and the event was scheduled to end at 8:30. When we got there it was about 10 after 8, but we were greeted with smiles and a welcoming warmth. Although most guests had already eaten, the staff made sure there were fresh servings of the entire menu on the buffet for us to choose from. The menu consisted of Crab Legs, Prime Rib (carving station), Stuffed Chicken Breast, Grilled Asparagus, Garlic Mashed Potatoes, and more… A full desert bar with luscious dessert cakes and coffee / tea. Champagne was also included! What a delightful evening! We were totally stuffed and the wait staff was very attentive. If you would like to attend the next event at this country club, I’d suggest you go to the website and sign up for the news letter, that’s all I did, and I am not even currently a golfer! They will keep you informed of what’s coming up and I can promise you that you’ll totally enjoy any event you attend. Hats off to Deer Creek Golf Club!
I played Deer Creek on a brilliant Saturday afternoon - perfect weather break after the incredibly hot and dry summer. The course was in excellent shape, especially given the extreme conditions in Kansas. The greens, fairways, and roughs were all well manicured. That said, the service was quite poor. I have never had a six hour round -- until yesterday. Tee off time was 2:42 and we finished up at 8:42. In front of our threesome was a twosome, a fivesome (two who were walking), and another twosome. There was no one at the starter box to organize those waiting to tee off and we never saw a marshall on the course. The saving grace was the brightt, friendly, and enthusiastic young woman who was driving the refreshment cart - she sold plenty of beer yesterday. I really enjoyed the layout and the challenge of the course and would consider playing again, but probably not on a weekend, unless I have six hours to spare.
Played on Sept 19th and the course had just been aerated so the greens were furry and rough but that is to be expected. They had just experienced a lot of rain so the course was soaked and everything was a little over grown but playable. Deer Creek is challenging course and requires lots of course management. I only hit driver 4 times off the tee (now where to hit it on many holes). It is very tight with water and trees on every hole. Good but challenging experience.
Beautiful course and was in great shape, that is....except for the bunkers. They are mostly all washout areas that havent been kept up. Also, They really need to look at taking some trees down that are within 50 yards of the teeboxes. Several holes have overgrowth of trees within first 50 yards that make you have to tee off into a ten yard channel between the trees. Its rather annoying. Love the course but they really need to look at playability off of about 4 teeboxes.
I played Deer Creek today. Granted it was after a rain storm, but I really doubt the recent rain had much to do with the conditions of the course. I have always been a big fan of Deer Creek, but I am not headed back to play any time soon. #13 has been converted to a par 3 and the bridge on #17 is out of commission. On top of all of this, it took over 5hrs to play.
Golf is a great game - enjoy a sport requiring concentration and discipline while you commune with nature. Take in the beautiful setting carefully maintained by skilled staff. Enjoy a beverage with your friends, crafted by the friendly bartender in the clubhouse, or right on the course when the cart comes to you. Stay tuned as conditons are improving on this course!
Golf was great, and the course was challenging and definitely was worth the wait. Stopped into the Mulligans grill on the turn to buy some quick food and it turned out to be fantastic! Cheddar jalapeno dog was Great for the value. Nothing but good things to say! I will definitely be back. Maybe tomorrow? Who knows...:) thanks
Its a tough golf course. But some tee boxes were like sand traps and they let people drive golf carts all over the muddy fairways. We had to use three different cart during our round because the carts kept running out of juice. The group in front of us also had a very slow and broken cart.
Deer Creek is back! They just replaced all the greens in October of 2010 with new A-4 Bent and reworked all the greenside bunkers. The greens are playing a little slow for grow in and the new sand in the bunkers is great. The course should be in championship shape by late spring of 2011.
