Deerwood's front and back nines have two par threes and one par five. All 18 holes were designed to allow golfers to use their skills in the placement of shots to best arrive at the green. Several of the holes span natural preserves or water, and have well-placed waste and sand bunkers in the fairways and guarding the greens. Greens are generally fast with variations of break and undulation. The course is well marked with yardage markers. Yardage to the center of the green is marked on fairway sprinkler heads. Each golf cart has a pin placement chart.
