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!

tough layout, if possible you should play twice - once to gape in awe at the layout and beauty of the course, once to try to keep the ball in the fairways.More

thank you for the compliment. Try playing three times, once to enjoy the beauty of the course, once to keep the ball in the fairway, and the third time to combine the beauty and keep the ball in the fairway at the same time. Hope...More

This course is on an amazing piece of property, very beautiful golf course. Well maintained only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is that I thought the greens were a little shaggy and could have been a little faster. Best part was my ace...More
