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.
What Our Guests Are Saying…
Your team makes managing events and raising money for Junior Achievement easy. Everyone on your staff is polite, professional and responsive, and our guests took notice. Thanks for the great work.
I have been going over the event you put together (for us) and was wishing you were the first course I ever worked with. What a difference! Most of this I used to have to learn and do on my own. You make it so easy! I appreciate all of your expertise in the area of golf.
