The North Course opens with a narrow par 5 that will challenge your skill at keeping your first drive in the fairway. If you move your ball right or left you will have to handle a few well developed trees for your approach to the green. After a simple lay-up shot you should have no problem hitting this large undulating green. There is a Water Hazard marked by Yellow Stakes and Out of Bounds clearly marked with White Stakes.
Hole Number 2 has had considerable grooming over the years. From the Blue Tees there is still a narrow tunnel that opens to a clear fairway with a slight dogleg left. The green is reachable in two if you do not pull your shot off to the left. Once on the green you should have no trouble reading these well manicured greens. There is a Lateral Water Hazard marked with Red Stakes and a Water Hazard marked with Yellow Stakes.
Hole Number 3 is a straight par 4 with Out of Bounds clearly marked with White Stakes on the left. Your approach to the green is easily handled with this large green but, some golfers have found it is simple to put their second or third shot over the green.
The Forth Hole appears to be an easy par 3 but there are some dangers waiting as you make your approach shot. There is a Water Hazard marked by Yellow Stakes in front of the green. We have also placed a Walled Bunker with a 3 foot incline, for your pleasure, on the left. Remember the green is guarded on the right by one of our soft sand bunkers as well.
Hole Number 5 is a beautiful dog-leg left which needs a drive of about 250 yards to set you up with a clear second shot on this par 5 hole. There is Out of Bounds on the left that is clearly marked but hardly ever comes into play. With a nice second shot you will have no problems landing your ball on this large green in regulation. After you 2 putt you will feel good about walking away with a par.
Aside from the Out of Bounds on the left, Hole Number 6 is a fun hole. There is a slight dog-leg right but the fairway is open enough for you to reach this green in regulation. You need to be careful reading this green as it has a deceiving break to the left.
The Seventh Hole is the Signature Hole at Deerfield Country Club. This is a very challenging par 4 that requires a long straight drive to have a shot at reaching this green in 2. The green is guarded by a creek about 140 yards from the front and an elevated green making it best for the average golfer to lay-up in front of the creek before going for the green. This well bunkered green will excite you when you are walking off with a boogie.
The Eighth Hole is a beautiful par 3 with an elevated green. You should go up a club if you want to hit the green. Be careful of the two bunkers that protect the sides of this large green. If your shot is short it might find either of these sand traps. Once you are on the green you will notice that your are faced with a large green that has several levels to test your green reading skills.
Hole Number 9 is slightly on the narrow side but not much trouble awaits if you are slightly off line. A well placed shot will offer you a good look at the green in hopes to land your second shot on the dance floor. Two putts and you are in with a par. Count them up and enjoy the turn.
Hole 10 is a straight away par 4 with most of the trouble on the right side. A good tee shot is left-center giving you an optimal approach shot to this deep green. Be careful because long is dead as OB lurkes behind this green.
Hole 11 is a great example of Deerfield's "risk and reward" layout. Big hitters can gamble off the tee box and try to carry the bunkers that come in from the right side of the hole (be careful because water comes into play on the left side). Your approach shot will be to a 2-tier green that slopes back to front - get on the correct level or a 3 putt is likely.
Hole 12 is a challenging par 3 that leaves little room for error off the tee. Hitting this big green does not guarantee par! Tip: stay below the hole!
