Deer Run Golf Club
8661 Deer Run Dr, Victoria, MN 55386
Hospitality and fast play. These are two things this course really focuses on and does a great job with. As a foursome on a busy Saturday morning we played in 3.5 hours. Staff was very friendly with no stuffy vibe anywhere. Greens and course were in very good shape. Conditions equal to some of the best in the Twin Cities. Clubhouse has lots of interesting character and driving range has auto ball feeders which is a rare treat; although you will be hitting off a mat to use this feature. Brand new golf carts for 2020 are also top of the line and a pleasure to use!
Greens, traps, flowers, etc were in excellent condition. Tee boxes and fairways were also very good. Clearly lots of attention paid to maintenance!
Well balanced course in terms of variety, risk/reward, forced carries, and green undulations. Offset a little bit by several blind shots and some holes that were pretty tight to each other.
Excellent level of finishing touches throughout the course and very nice elevation changes. Trees, water, sand, and mounding had good visual appeal. Lots of housing may be a detraction for some.
Pace of Play: Fantastic (Busy Sat morning)
Walkability Score: C
