Comments: Deer Creek has good bones and could be one of the premier courses in Jefferson County, given a few years and a lot of work. It was recently purchased by Andrea Politte and she is passionate about restoring the course to its former glory. If her enthusiasm is any indication, I am confident that the course will make constant strides. The course is 25 years old and has a good layout, particularly on the front 9. They are nurturing the greens to add speed. Right now they are pretty slow. Some holes are very, very challenging. For instance, the 3rd hole is a 147 yard par 3 with a very narrow chute from the tee box, with minimal room for error. It is one of the most intimidating holes I’ve played in a while. Many of the greens have 2 sand traps guarding the front. The really cool thing is that Andrea believes strongly in supporting and giving back to the Armed Forces, Veterans and first responders who protect our country. She purchased the course as a way to give back to these men and women and waves their green fees. Her enthusiasm for her course and her mission is contagious. Go play Deer Creek and spend some time with Andrea; you will be glad you did.For more pictures of the course go to: www.facebook.com/mogolftour
