One of the "guarantee" courses you'll: 1. get on (even without a tee time), 2, have a good round (wide fairways/soft greens), 3. get paired up with nice people (it's North Tonawanda for cyring out loud!), 4. shoot a good score.

I'm the most unhospitable single you'll ever get paired with, yet every time I go to this course I get paired up with good people and shoot low scores.

The course itself is not going to receive awards for "Challenging" or "tough to navigate". What you get at Deerwood is no nonsense par 4s (all around the 380-400 mark), solid par threes and three shot par fives. What is especially nice at Deerwood, near perfect lies in the fairway. No need to kick it a bit to prop it up. The rough is pretty user friendly, however early in the morning it can be dew wet and tough to get club through.

The three "9s" are the: Fawn, Doe, and Buck. The Fawn is the most recenlty added 9, a tighter, more "Shot makers" course. The Fawn and Doe are "Grip it and Rip it" variety. The staff has always been very friendly to me and equally accommodating.

Would travel: 20-30 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Ranks with the best in this price level

Deerwood has the potential, but it is not being realized.

Course maintenance not up to par. The rough is usually 5-6 inches high. This is a public course where like many public courses, the pace of play can be slow. Here the pace of play can also in part be blamed on the frequency of lost balls in the tall rough with people then endlessly searching for their lost ball. The greens were in deplorable condition with fungus attacking and nothing being done about it. The grass on tees is also much too high.

The course seems interested in only revenue coming in without course conditions being improved. About 5 years ago was still a course to be proud of.

Managements apparent "do not care" attitude is also found in the maintenance workers, starters , rangers and cashiers. They are not the nice or helpful group you find at other courses.

Would travel: 0-10 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Average course for the area, Better courses for less nearby
