The team at Deer Creek, with the assistance of their parent company Coughlan Homes and through the vision of Hicks Design Studio completed a multimillion-dollar interior and exterior renovation of their wedding and event facility in August 2020.

Deer Creek Golf & Banquet Facility, located in Ajax, Ontario, first opened its doors in 2004 and quickly became Durham Region’s premier location to host weddings, golf tournaments and special events.

“We’ve always held ourselves to the highest standards and are committed to ensuring every wedding and special event upholds the wonderful reputation our community has bestowed upon us.” - Cory Russell, General Manager. “We understand the importance, time, and planning that goes into these events. We’re beyond excited to have completed our renovations, restoring excellence and leaving no stone unturned and no area untouched. Our newly renovated facility will provide picturesque backdrops, both indoor and outdoor, visually preserving memories as captured in pictures and video for years to come.”

What started as a simple refresh, quickly turned into a much larger project that encompassed everything from the outdoor area’s surrounding the facility, to a complete transformation of all interior spaces. In the fall of 2018, the journey began by reworking the exterior landscaping, repainting of the clubhouse, the relocation of the Pro Shop and the addition of a second gazebo for outdoor wedding ceremonies.

On November 1st, 2019 the Gem Room Restaurant began its transformation to become Jerry’s Taphouse, a nod to the companies’ founder Jerry Coughlan. With a 30-plus year history this space took on the greatest transformation, moving from a dated eatery to a completely updated modern gastropub fixed with large TV’s, premium bar area, textured walls and floors and warm bistro lighting.

The biggest transformation to the remainder of the facility began on January 2nd, 2020, with the complete overhaul of the indoor banquet facility. Known for its floor to ceiling windows and beautiful chandeliers, the remodeling has brightened the event spaces allowing the views and windows to once again become the feature focal point.

On the lower level, the Westney Hall was transformed to provide a rustic yet glamourous space with wood beam detail on the ceiling, stunning crystal chandeliers and new wood flooring to complete the vision. Additional windows were added in the cocktail area to provide guests with amazing views of the golf course from every angle.

The Coughlan Room, the most intimate event space at Deer Creek, now shines bright with updated features including beautiful elegant wallpaper, light hardwood flooring and mirrored walls helping to once again bring this cherished and adored space to life.

With so many updates, it’s easy to see how Deer Creek has upheld their reputation throughout their 30-year history. Excellence in their products and events, coupled with superior guest relations, are just a few of the reasons Deer Creek is truly the premier wedding and special event destination of Durham Region.
