Why More People Choose Deer Creek for Weddings

A wedding comes only once in a lifetime, it’s a moment, a fleeting time of magic that is over before you can blink an eye; but the memories of a great wedding will last forever. Finding wedding venues in South Florida that can meet your expectations and create the best memories, that’s a challenge.  More and More people are turning to golf courses, namely, Deer Creek for weddings.

The Key West Ballroom is Deer Creek’s answer to those who are searching for wedding venues in South Florida that far exceeds expectations, but not the budget. South Florida is an extremely competitive market when it comes to wedding venues, which is why every venue claims to be the best. However, Deer Creek Golf Club has the elegance and variety that is not so easily matched by other South Florida wedding venues. Below are just some of the reasons why Deer Creek is one of the best wedding venues in all of South Florida.  

The Awards 

Wedding Wire has given awards to Deer Creek for weddings. Our golf and country club wedding venue in South Florida is currently the couples’ choice awards winner for 2015 and 2016.  

Indoor or Outdoor 

The Key West Ballroom is an exceptional indoor location that was built for banquets, but is perfect for weddings. The recent renovation may have been well over a million dollars, but the resulting atmosphere is priceless. The hall is perfect for wedding receptions, and the surrounding waterfalls and cascades make an outdoor wedding just as spectacular.  

Location 

Stop thinking of wedding venues in South Florida that involve the beach, it’s tired, it’s cliché and retro, but not in a good way. More couples choose Deer Creek for weddings because it has the traditional feel that is so often forgotten these days. Deer Creek is conveniently located in Deerfield Beach, Florida, just south of the expensive city of Boca Raton, and north of the hustle of Fort Lauderdale wedding venues.

You Can Still Play Golf This Winter!

Winter can put a stop to many of the things that we enjoy: sun bathing, swimming, days at the beach…but it doesn’t have to put a stop to your golf game! Whether you are dealing with a chilly cold front here in South Florida or you are taking your golf game north, Deer Creek Golf Club has a few tips on how to stay warm on the green. So don’t worry, you can still play golf this winter!

Keeping warm is the first step to a successful round during winter. Most of our body heat escapes through our head and hands, so keep those covered! Invest in a warm ski cap and a good pair of gloves. You probably are not going to be able to wear your gloves when you play, so a good tip is to bring along some heating pads and stuff them into your gloves or pockets; they will warm you up fast between rounds. While you are playing, it is probably not a good idea to get around via golf cart. If you do not keep moving, your swing will get stiff and your game will suffer…so walk the course!

For the game, we highly suggest bringing some colored golf balls. There is nothing that will kill the mood like searching through the snow for your white golf ball. Golf balls can pose an entirely different problem as well: their temperature. Warm golf balls travel a lot farther than cold ones, so try to keep them warm in your hands or pockets until you are ready to use them.

You do not have to forgo your favorite pastime during winter. Whether you are playing in South Florida or on an icy, northern golf course, there are plenty of steps that you can take to make sure your game is on point year round!

How to Stay on Par with Your Golfing New Year’s Resolution

Roughly 90 percent of people do not stick to their New Year’s Resolution, so if you chose learning golf as yours, we have some tips on how to stay on par with your resolution.

Invest in golf: Purchasing proper golfing attire and equipment will help increase your chances of actually stepping foot onto a golf course.  Making yourself feel comfortable and confident on the course is half the battle to actually learning how to play well.

Practice putting: By starting simple, you can learn the basic techniques of golf, and when it comes down to that last small putt at the 18th hole, you can be sure that it will not take you five tries to make it in.

Find your technique: Find what moves work for you and what types of clubs are best for your swing and drive. Off the course, pick up your clubs at home and practice your swings. If you typically go to the gym every day, trade it out for an hour visit to the local golf course instead; you will be surprised at the amount of exercise that you can get from your beginner swings and chasing after golf balls.

Hire a Pro: Hiring a professional golf tutor will make it so that you do not slack on keeping your New Year’s resolution.

The more time and money that you invest in golf, the more likely you will be able to master your New Year’s resolution, and the more that those 100 golf balls you lost in the course’s lakes will be golf balls not missed. 

Give the Gift of Golf

As we approach the holidays, you likely have started thinking of what to get your loved ones as gifts this year. While many children probably want electronics, game systems, iPhones, etc., there is another gift you can give that your child the chance to try something they might fall in love with for life: golf. By giving golf lessons or a membership, you can help your child learn the game of golf, which is a smart move for also learning the game of life.

Even if your child has never played before, children are usually excited about everything—which makes childhood the ideal time to introduce golf into their lives. At Deer Creek, we offer lessons for golfers of all ages with expert tips like perfecting your swing, how to play short game, and basics like what to use each club for.

Check out our South Florida golf school offerings, or simply schedule a few lessons with a golf pro. This season, give the gift of golf!
