Over the years my friends and I have played Kings Deer quite often. We just played again early in July 2013. The greens are in horrible condition--not only are they not green but they are very bumpy and it's a pure guess whether a good putt is going to turn away or a missed putt is going to go in the hole anyway. So we have agreed we'll not be back for a few months when there's a chance the greens will be playable. But having said that, I still give the course the "average" rating because we paid $40 each, which included greens fee, cart, and free lunch. It's the lunch in the much improved dining area that allowed me to give a rating of three instead of one. The menu is much expanded from past days. The dining area is very attractively laid out with nice, clean, green tablecloths. The service was also better than in the past as they have hired at least one or two new waitresses. For our $40 fee we were allowed to pick anything on the menu and there were some good choices. So we had a great lunch in a pleasant setting and decent service. As for the course, I can only say we all played the same greens so no one had an advantage. And we did have fun.
