Deercroft Golf Club
The best kept secret in the Sandhills awaits you with today’s feature: $19 for 18 Holes with Cart and Range Balls at Deercroft Golf and Country Club in Wagram near Southern Pines ($38 Value. Expires October 1, 2013.)
Just a short drive from the historic Pinehurst village is the magnificent Deercroft Golf Club. Golf Digest describes this course as the "Best Kept Secret in the Pinehurst area" and readers of GolfWeek named Deercroft as one of America’s Best Courses for six years running. The accolades have earned Deercroft hosting duties for two PGA qualifying tournaments and several PGA Senior Tour qualifying events. But even with a storied history, the new management team is preparing to take this course to the next level by collaborating with renowned golf architect Kyle Franz on a major renovation for Deercroft over the next few years.
Though on the outskirts, Deercroft Golf Club is part of the legendary set of golf courses located in the Pinehurst area, and the list of awards and fabulous golfer reviews just go to prove that Deercroft is worth the 20-minute drive. Originally designed by Gardner Gilley, Deercroft is carved from towering pine forests and is one of the most scenic in the Sandhills. The beautifully maintained bent grass greens and Bermuda grass fairways are highlighted in contrast to the majestic lake on the property that spans over 70 acres.
Golfers can choose from any of the four sets of tees, ranging from a challenging round of over 6,500 yards or a more laid-back on at just about 5,000 yards. All 18 holes play to a par of 72 and can be difficult, with a slightly above par course/slope rating of 72.2/131 from the back tees.
In addition to a world-class golf experience, Deercraft Golf Club also offers practice facilities that are great for touching up on any of the rusty elements of your game. The bar and grill creates a relaxing environment to celebrate your victories or mend your wounds.
