The 10th and 11th holes ruin an otherwise wonderful Palmer course. The pear shaped greens on 10 & 11, are 4 putt surfaces, if you can get on the green. They back up the course and turn it into a 5 hour round. With virtual...More

We always have the best time when we play Deacon's Lodge golf course. We play it at least once or twice a year. The course always challenges us and we have the best time playing it. The staff is friendly and helpful too.

Well-maintained, however just a tad long for me (my buddy and I utilized the red tees to ensure we didn't slow down players behind us - oh yeah, and were in our middle/upper 60's and don't whack the ball as well as we used to).

The menu here is all pub food. The only thing not fried is the soup. Which doesn’t seem homemade. Nice atmosphere but menu is boring. Was told they have the best Walleye sandwich. Since I don’t eat fried food we chose to eat somewhere else.

What a delightful time our group of 12 had at Deacon's Lodge Golf Club. They take care of the little things by greeting guests at the bag drop, using eye contact and smiling (Henry). Wow!! The golf shop staff and first tee greeters make everyone...More

A group of twelve of us had a golfing package including several round of golf, lodging and meals. The golf course is great! Also, the customer service by the entire staff at Deacon's was outstanding.

Deacon's Lodge is an attractive, interesting golf course. The fairways and greens are in good shape. The layout is fun. However, it is absurd to pay $112 for a round of golf that takes 5 1/2 hours. At this price, we should have seen a...More

This golf course is absolutely beautiful! We had 2 foursomes, guys and gals... We all enjoyed playing here so much! The elevation changes on some of the holes made it seem like we were playing a mountain course. Loved 17... par 3... breathtaking!

thank you. we are very proud of our Arnold Palmer designed golf course at Deacons Lodge along with our other two courses at Breezy Point.

Definitely worth the trip. We drove from Chicago and the ride was worth it. The course was tough, but beautiful. Nice clubhouse with a very northwoods atmosphere. Breezy resort has lots of children, so if you are golfing there, be prepared for a little noise...More
