What the club says: Deer Park Golf Club has perhaps the most challenging course in the Lothian’s. The course extends through natural parkland, enjoying stunning views of west Lothian and Fife and an enviable reputation. Deer Park was designed and built by Peter Allis, Dave Thomas and Peter Clark in 1978, and has become one of Central Scotland’s leading Golf & Country Clubs. Deer Park is a challenging but fair Parkland course, with generous tree lined fairways and the occasional pond to capture a stray ball! Strategically positioned bunkering and large undulating greens make this 6,727 yard course a fair test of golf.

The course was in good condition for this time of the year, there were a lot of temporary greens which were not so good but I enjoyed it.

Well laid out

A very well laid out course. The front 9 is reasonably flat so easy walking the back 9 is very hilly. The course was very wet when we played in September and the majority of the greens were close to unplayable

Played yesterday 8th and absolutely fantastic course. Ian the professional was very helpful and polite as was all the staff. Course was very wet underfoot but still played well.
Bunkers due to inclement weather where out of action but that’s Scotland for you.
Course itself is good and there’s a mixture of straight forward holes and challenging holes for all types of golfers.
At 56 in just getting back in after a 35 year absence from golf and this course for me was ok
Handicap 17 went round in 91 net 74. This will come down and date day a return to Deer Park will help.

Fantastic day!

We (three ball) had booked through the Bunkered voucher scheme and opted for the morning coffee and roll and sausage before the golf with the two course lunch following the golf. The staff were very welcoming and friendly and very helpful. The course was in great condition. We were playing from the slightly forward tee placements because it was technically still winter but still very long. In the summer this course will be a monster, not for the cardiac-challenged golfer!
The food was outstanding and the portions were generous, however the biggest takeaway from the day was the staff, just brilliant all round, would not hesitate to thoroughly recommend this course to every level of golfer, you won’t regret it.

Service!!!!!!

A lovely parkland course in very decent condition. A good day out with friends slightly ruined by really poor service by staff. Unfriendly, unhelpful, slow and a bit unorganized!!! Staff members have a good look at yourselves, golfers remember who treated them well and made the extra bit of effort!!!

Course in good condition. Poor customer service

We had an outing here using the golf show vouchers. We chose to take one of the deals on the back of the card. Our organiser encountered a less than friendly welcome from the receptionist as did a couple of our players. Any request was met with huffed tones and we were made to feel like an inconvenience throughout. The food portions were laughable but were relatively ok. Out with the bar and dining experience we had a great day. Course was in good condition with generally challenging greens.

Scorchio day at Deer Park

Played this course in a competition from the white tees with temperatures in the mid twenties. The course was in excellent condition. For once a course where the greens on the course are similar to the practice greens. This course is very much open to outings and so can be quite busy and slow which can be a bit of a nuisance but not enough to deter from visiting again.
Supported by great staff in the clubhouse , food is reasonable and beers are plenty.
