Deerfield Events, There's Really Nothing Like It.

What Our Clients Are Saying…

Thanks again to the Deerfield staff for another successful event! Our guests always rave about the venue, and the service is always top-notch. I thought lunch was great, so kudos to the Chef. Even with the snow flurries….still a great day. Thank you!
-Karen Stauffer, Delaware Restaurant Association

“All I can really say (about our event at Deerfield) is that it was “just great.” Everything went perfect and I couldn’t have been more pleased. I want to particularly commend Steven, the young man who directed the set-up and serving staff. He was absolutely “tremendous”. He was attentive to every last detail and any request we had for him was handled promptly and with a positive “can-do” approach. I was really impressed with this young man and feel you have an outstanding employee in him. All the serving staff (was) also excellent. They worked hard and did a great job.”

“Certainly my compliments go out to the Chef for the outstanding meal that he served us. The Chicken Marsala was just fantastic. I was also very impressed with the “kid’s table” as well, and I could tell they really enjoyed the chicken fingers (and) macaroni and cheese. All in all, I couldn’t have been more pleased with everything. You can be assured that we were very pleased with the Deerfield and will certainly return again next year.”
-James Regan

Originally built by the DuPont Corporation for its employees in 1955, the club was called Louviers Country Club. In 1994 MBNA purchased the club from DuPont and built the new clubhouse ballroom and recreational building, renaming it Deerfield. In 2005 the state of Delaware acquired the 145-acre property to protect the land from development. The club is part of Delaware’s White Clay Creek State Park supervised by the Delaware Division of Parks and Recreation. In February 2006 the Division of Parks and Recreation retained Forewinds Hospitality to manage the property. Deerfield opened to the public for the first time in 51 years on April 14, 2006.
