"Deerwood Club proudly boasts about many member benefits but perhaps the greatest treasure can be found behind the kitchen doors of the Clubhouse. (Executive Chef) Gary McKinsey and his team have often prepared and cooked to-go meals for our special occasions and family gatherings. They could not be more friendly and accommodating. Most importantly, the food is outstanding. Everything from hors d'ouevres  to entrees to Pastry Chef Joanne McKinsey's sweet desserts are great! The menu varies but the compliments we get from family and friends at every event are constant and universally positive. I strongly recommend treating yourself to Deerwood to-go!"

"I would recommend this venue to every couple looking for a place to celebrate their union. The event planner, Denise Brilli, is so accommodating and brings lots of experience to the table. She listens to what your visions are and does everything in her power to make it happen. My experience with her is one I will treasure and will not hesitate to contact her when my other 2 children are ready to get married."

"Very nice private country club. This is an excellent place for dinner meetings. The staff was very professional! I was very impressed."

I recently had the pleasure to collaborate with Deerwood Country Club on a baby shower event. Denise was wonderful to work with - very accommodating, flexible with my changes and incredibly professional. The pastry chef knocked it out of the park with the cake and cupcakes she made for the event which complimented my decorations perfectly. The team, venue, and experience were amazing. I can't wait to work with them again. Thank you Denise and the entire Deerwood team!

"We picked Deerwood for a parent's 70th birthday party- with planning and preparation very much like a wedding. The Club feels and looks sophisticated, but the atmosphere is relaxed and inviting. The view out the back is just exceptional. The food quality and presentation were on par with the a 5 star restaurant. The staff (Denise, Melanie and Eric, among others) were friendly, professional and accommodating. From the initial meeting months before, to the final minutes of the party ending, the staff made us feel like they wanted us there - nothing was ever a burden. and request were handled with a yes sir and action. Honestly, we really never had to lift a finger, except for just showing up. On a couple of occasions, the bartenders went so far as to see that I couldn't slip away from greeting/hosting guests and brought me over another drink without me even having to ask. Overall, just a great experience. Well worth the money."

"Denise at Deerwood made our experience quite amazing! We had so much flexibility and ideas to help make our wedding day that much more enjoyable. Denise communicated very effectively by email whenever I had any questions or my fiance wanted more information. The venue is beautiful and I wouldn't have had it any other way. I hope you choose Deerwood for your wedding day as well!"

"Thank you so much for the Deerwood CC staff's hard work to make our wedding as perfect as possible. Everything went smoothly all because of the Deerwood CC full staff! My new Husband loved the mac N Cheese surprise. He said it was the best mac n cheese he ever had! We were bummed that we didn't take any home.  · Everyone said the steak and the food were cooked to perfection. The cocktail hour display looked beautiful, at least of what I saw in pictures. We didn't get to have our 15 min in the room, BUT we loved the fact and appreciated it so much that the food and beverage director (forgot his name) went above and beyond to deliver the hors d'oeuvres and champagne during our photo/video shoot. It was a fun moment for us; even the photographer took some pics of us eating the food. The Golf cart was super helpful and on time and made the video/photo shoot run quickly. The waiters and waitresses were very accommodating and kind. The cake was completely perfect! The design and robots was more than I could ever imagine. Oh and the cake itself, EVERYONE said the cake was DELICIOUS. I was nervous that people won’t like sweet potato in general, but everyone was raving about it, they wished they weren't full, so they can eat more. The bride room was so helpful throughout the night. · Everyone loved the bartender! The drinks were on point. He was very accommodating to our guests. Denise was very helpful through this whole wedding process and worked with my parents during the planning, in which all the hard work brought us a beautiful wedding day."

"We recently chose Deerwood for my daughter's wedding, what a great decision!! The wedding area is extremely scenic with the backdrop of the lake, the cocktail hour out on the veranda is spacious and inviting. Denise Brilli, the catering manager was amazing to work with and doubled as a quasi-wedding planner, lots of good recommendations. The food (salmon and filet) was as good as any steakhouse and the cake was amazing. Kudos to the entire team at Deerwood for making a special occasion absolutely perfect!"

"When my daughter got engaged we looked at a variety of places as a potential venue. We ultimately chose Deerwood for my daughter's wedding and last Saturday was the big day. To say that the day was perfect would be an understatement! Denise Brilli was an absolutely phenomenal person to work with throughout the entire process she provided great suggestions was very responsive and made the event go off without a hitch. Our guests gave rave reviews for the food as well as all of the servers. Ron did his usual amazing job behind the bar and kept everyone happy. Additionally, the Chef made an amazing wedding cake which was as tasty as it was beautiful. Regina and I enjoy being a member at Deerwood and we are even prouder after your entire team made a special day one that was even more memorable. Our guests repeated over and over again how great the team was and how great a choice for Deerwood to be the venue. Please pass along my compliments to your entire team for the great party and the great time had by all of my guests. "
