They are located right on the course, so we were able to sit at our umbrella table and watch golfers go by. We have stayed at other places, but Deer Run is by... More

Nice golf course, well maintained. Greens can be tough. The owners are very gracious. The club house is neat and clean. Bar is big with lots of cold beverages. Room's are to the small side but very clean and comfortable. We where there for 3 night's and will definitely be returning again.

Never having golfed on an island, my husband and I recently gave Deer Run Golf Course a try. The weather was far from ideal with temps in the 40s and mist. Needless to say, when we started out we were the only ones on the course. In our opinion, it wasn't inexpensive at $49 and the course itself is in... More

A nice golf course nestled on Washington Island. Watch out for the wind however, a little breezy, but nice on a hot day!

This is the only place to play on the Island. It's a short but relatively fun 9 hoes. It's a little expensive for the quality and location.

Very pretty little course. The owner was quite friendly to us. We played a lively round and thoroughly enjoyed it.

A great walk, open enough to spray the ball. Greens need work as they are upside down bowls. Tee's need to be redone but its always full of nice people as always at Washington Island.
