Deercroft Golf Club
Deercroft Golf Club, often described as the “Sandhills’ best kept
secret”, was the
home of the PGA and Senior PGA Qualifying Rounds in 1986 and
Golf Club, nestled in the heart of the Sandhills’ 10,000-acre wildlife refuge,
has also been called the “sleeper” of the Sandhills since opening in 1983.
The fairways are rolling and lush, and the greens putt true. In
addition, the greens are well bunkered. Several long shots over water are
required while playing this course. Deercroft has a 90 acre lake that winds

The 18-hole "Deercroft" course features 6,566 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 72 . The
course rating is 72.1 and it has a slope rating of 130 on Bermuda grass.

Pinehurst area, Deercroft offers a wonderful round of golf and is a course
you’ll find yourself returning to again and again.
The course is impeccably maintained and the setting is great for a relaxing
getaway. Deercroft isn't all that long, but accuracy is demanded by the pine
trees lining the fairways which love to slap down
errant tee shots.
Shot placement is important on several holes as well. On my first couple of rounds
here I fired off some blistering drives that left me feeling pretty good, only
to find myself without a direct line to the green and forced to lay up with a
Carved from magnificent pine forests, Deercroft offers one of the most
scenic and challenging tests of shot making in the North Carolina Sandhills.
