I have been bowing in this league for 5 years and now because the workers don’t know what they are doing our team has to put a $80 reservation fee to hold our spot. I think it’s time to bowl at another house. Anyone know of a FUN league??

We had our childs birthday party here a few weeks ago and had a bad time. When we got to the center our host was still getting our stuff together and didn’t have our food order. We had our party here because it was close to home but I should of just went to Upland Bowl. My friend had her childs party at Upland and everything was GREAT! When I asked to talk to a manager they said she wasn’t in and no one in the center could help us. I ask the desk person to have the manager call me and it’s been over 2 weeks and no call. FYI if your going to have a birthday party call Upland Bowl.

Make new friends at the bowling alley!!!

wow no comments for awhile. did the center get rid of Vanessa? I havent been , or maybe all got tired of beating a dead horse(vanessa). good luck

Comment Date: 1/22/2011 Name: yeah right
problems can be fixed with right maanagement team. Vanessa is not the answer. Time to get back to basics. Besides if team cant have team capt.(vanessa)team falls apart.Lead by example not bynot showing up.Also did they not just put in new score keepers on lanes.That was good (snicker,snicker)investment kinda makes me want to continue here

Comment Date: 1/20/2011 Name: Bowler too!
Pins constantly off spot, Racks slow, Lanes break down, But possibly the most walled up shot in the citrus belt.

Comment Date: 1/20/2011 Name: bowler
This place is always having problems and taking a long to fix them the place needs a remodel bad

Just heard that the GM of Deer Creek is on sick leave due to Salmonella poisoning….I suggest everyone steer clear of the snack bar until it is cleared by the health department!

Comment Date: 6/20/2010 Name: ? Helpful Bowler
Did Ted ever help with your problem? In the past I called and he said talk it out with the manager. When I call she was never in. I called from the inside the center and her staff said she wasn’t in. That’s crazy since I saw her come out of the bathroom.

Hi fellow bowlers. I’m a new female bowler to the area. I went into the pro shop at deer creek on Sunday to get new equipment and the guy there working was extremely helpful (and kinda cute!). I can’t wait to go buy more stuff! I’m so glad to be bowling here now. The lane porter was very nice as well. And also very attractive!! His name started with a “c” but can’t remember what it was exactly. All of the staff is very helpful and the center is very clean.

Comment Date: 6/14/2010 Name:  Concerned
I think I heard it all, besides Deercreek having a non-existent manager, she is a victim. A victim who likes to spread lies about people who do not post on bowling2u! Vanessa, stop running your mouth about people, it only proves you are your own problem!!!

Comment Date: 6/10/2010 Name: Other Observer
Thank you “Helpful Bowler” You have been, well….helpful! This will come in handy.

Comment Date: 5/27/2010 Name: Helpful Bowler
The e-mail address is, I agree if you do not like the manager, send your complaints to Ted and I am sure he will get tired of hearing about it and finally put this to rest!

Comment Date: 5/10/2010 Name: Other Observer
Oh, I’m sorry Vanessa but at the time of that post the snack bar did have a “B” grade. As for being at the center for the vegas hi rollers league, well I guess being onsite for one of your leagues is better than nothing. Maybe this isn’t the right forum for complaints. Does anyone have Ted Stallings email address?

Comment Date: 5/9/2010 Name: Observer-23928329372
Im pretty sure that they have an A rating- might want to re- check that before you post smack
And I have seen the Manager there every Friday for Vegas High Rollers. Not sure what your problem is with her, but you might want to get your facts straight before posting lies.. as that seems to be the case on this blog

Comment Date: 5/8/2010 Name: DC BOWLER
Another successful season of bowling. Thanks to the Deer Creek management & staff for their hard work to make it the best bowling center around. Looking forward to bowling this summer.

Comment Date: 5/2/2010 Name: Vegas Hi Rollers Bowler
How does Brunswick with all their rules let one of their bowling lanes get a “B” rating in their snack bar. You would think management would make sure they didn’t get a “B” when they don’t let you bring in your own food. But then management is never here.

Comment Date: 4/25/2010 Name: Observer
BOWLER: Employees reflect their leadership…..A team is only as good as their manager. Its unfortunate but Deer Creek doesn’t have a very good one right now. D.C. has had many managers and they will have many more.

Comment Date: 4/11/2010 Name: BOWLER
deer creek lanes would be better if all the employees communicated well with each other

Comment Date: 3/25/2010 Name: Steven S
I noticed a “B” rating in the snack bar, I there a problem? I hope it is not a problem with rodents or insects. I will not be buying food there til it’s an “A”. I hope they do not get made at me for bring in outside food until they bring up their grade.

Comment Date: 3/20/2010 Name: kegler
I love to bowl, and have never had a problem at this alley. I pay for shoes they give me shoes, I pay for food they give me food, I pay for booze they give me booze. I have fun bowling and dont care who the manager is!

Comment Date: 3/4/2010 Name: Concerned
DC BOWLER, its obvious that you don’t have more important things to do like work, if you did you would not be posting on this site! Pull your head out {deleted} and stop calling people losers for posting an opinion, if the opinions were not true you would not be saying a word. SOMETIMES THE TRUTH HURTS!!!!

Comment Date: 3/4/2010 Name: Observant17/ response
Is this not a forum to get your opinion out on how a bowling center is ran? If you do not like something this is where you put it, Right? Just as it would be if people were happy with how things are done. Unfortunately there is not enough positive responses to show what a great job is being done!

Comment Date: 3/2/2010 Name: DC BOWLER
I kind of wish I was a pathetic loser that had nothing better to do except for making stupid comments about a manager. However I have more important things to do like work. How about those of you that are unhappy with the Deer Creek management or staff quit bowling there. You will be doing all of us league bowlers a favor.

Comment Date: 3/2/2010 Name: Observant17
All of you who have posted negative crap about Vanessa and Deer Creek…you need to grow up and move the hell on. If you don’t like her, that is fine, but just shut your mouths keep yourselves. GO BOWL SOMEWHERE ELSE!!!!!!

Comment Date: 2/20/2010 Name: Concerned
After reading all of the previous posts, it’s amazing this person still has a job. Hopefully Brunswick will come to their senses and remove this manager. She is obviously not capable of running a bowling center. Just an observation, not need to attack me for an opinion.

Comment Date: 2/20/2010 Name: Nick
I made a mistake! I Have had so many problems since my last post on B2U.COM. When I went to mention my problems to Vanessa and she was not there, I was very disappoint. I must have been wrong in what I thought was never having problems with the lanes and things are done pretty quickly. So I guess I am like the rest of you trying voice my frustration on this site, I am very sorry for saying all of you are just keyboard warriors because I am one also.

Comment Date: 2/20/2010 Name: Observant
I went to Upland to practice in the morning around 9 am saw the new manager there and thought why is she here is the morning, when she should be here at night when the bigger leagues start? So when I showed up for my 6 pm league she was still there. Why does the new manager work need to work so many hours when the DC manager does not show up to work? does not seem fair!

Comment Date: 2/20/2010 Name:  League Bowler
I have bowled across the country and have never seen a bowling center ran so poorly. This is the first center where the manager is never around for leagues or open play. Who is there to talk to or voice a complaint a seventeen year old kid who does not care? That must come from the top when the manager does not care why would the employees?

Comment Date: 2/11/2010 Name: everyday bowler
Is there a new manager at deer creek? I saw a tall blond there I did not know who she was. I thought the girl who had the baby was the manager, Is the blond is a temp?

Comment Date: 2/9/2010 Name: League Bowler
How often is Vanessa really at the alley? I’m a regular at Deer Creek and I rarely see her. Poor management skills. How do you run the place when you’re never there? I have nothing good to say about her. I think it’s time for a new GM?

Comment Date: 2/9/2010 Name: Observant
Is the dc manager working a lot more hours now because there is a new manager at upland? I guess when the old manager at upland only worked 15 hours a week 20 hours looked great. She must know she can�t work 20 hours a week anymore when the upland manager is working 60+. I have not seen that kind of dedication in a long time, the new manager must be an American!

Comment Date: 2/5/2010 Name: Nick
Love how you all can talk as much {deleted)as you want when its the internet……. I’m willing to bet you’re all best friends and buddy buddy with the employees when you’re there bowling. Pathetic if you ask me, all of you are just keyboard warriors. I’ll keep bowling at Deer Creek, its an awesome center. Rarely ever have problems with the lanes, and if I do, its normally fixed pretty quick considering how busy they can be. If half of you didn’t have chips on your shoulders and attitudes to begin with, you probably wouldn’t have near as much “problems” as you seem to.

Comment Date: 1/11/2010 Name: just a bowler
all you new people beware, if you dont kiss vanessa’s butt she will not like you and do all she can to make you leave. maybe we should check her visa as it expired but she still as a job.

Comment Date: 10/28/2009 Name: agreeing
you are right just a bowler, that guy ,Russ, is a dufus. He does have a personality of a rock and comes across as a stupid. Vanessa is only one step up from him. My god where do you find these people, is there a “dufus R us” site you guys apply at.

Comment Date: 10/6/2009 Name: just a bowler
Wow I thought Vanesa had the personality of a rock but this guy who is in training for a GM spot I think his name is Russ,is one of the dumbest boneheads i have ever come across. He adds to problems not helps them. I noticed him gone for over a hour at most times when we were there. He just stares at you without helping, plus we think he would make a great game show host as his next job or maaybe a guy who helps them ” COME ON DOWN, YOUR THE NEXT BOWLER AT DEERCREEK” ROFLMAO

Comment Date: 7/23/2009 Name: bowl4fun
The center is a fun place to be, everyone is nice, which is an accomplishment considering how many crabby bowlers they have to deal with daily! It must be difficult to deal with all the different leagues and events but they seem to do pretty awesome. Bowling is a fun sport, right? People who get crazy and rude for no reason need to grow up and stop thinking that the ground they walk on needs to be worshipped.

Comment Date: 6/22/2009 Name: JoAnn
Vanessa the manger is rude. She should teach and explain to her employees instead of yell at them. I heard she is on a visa from Canada, GO BACK, and give the job to an AMERICAN

Comment Date: 6/22/2009 Name: league bowler
hey deercreek bowler(aka…Vanessa) maybe you should go back to Canada and let a real American have a job,you illegal alien whose visa has ran out

Comment Date: 6/19/2009 Name: Deer Creek Bowler
Hey League Bowler- you should maybe take some spelling lessons before you decide to post trash about things you know nothing about.

Comment Date: 6/18/2009 Name: somebody
too bad they wont print all the stuff they say about you Vanessa we all know that you are the one who writes all the good stuff about yourself

Comment Date: 6/7/2009 Name: Deer Creek Bowler
This is funny- Vanessa must be flattered that all you do is sit around and post comments about her. Her name must taste good.It seems to be in your mouth alot.
I agree with long time bowler below, you are definately a disgruntled employee for sure that apparently is in love with Sandy.
Go to West Covina- please

Comment Date: 6/5/2009 Name: league bowler
I see that {deleted} Vanessa is still here. She blows!!!! Why is Sandy not back ? I here they are in love with her in West Covina!!!! I also hear that that center is bringing in more money than Deercreek and WC loves their LEAGUE BOWLERS!!!! PLEASE WAKE UP AND BRING SANDY BACK

Comment Date: 5/14/2009 Name: League Bowler
Cold pizza and stuck to the box. They call this bowler apprecation??

Comment Date: 4/20/2009 Name: joe blow
What are the managers hours and when Vannesa is not there who is the asst. manager? The people want to know.

Comment Date: 4/7/2009 Name: league bowler
Way to go Jennifer, this is the treatment from Vanessa, A so called long time manager at Deercreek .She is the rudest there is, cannot follow through with any of her so called managerial duties WAKE UP BRUNSWICK, bring back Sandy and make her manager, someone who will get it done

Comment Date: 4/4/2009 Name: Jennifer
I been bowling at Deer Creek of and on for years and the service I got her the last time I was in was bad. When I asked to ask to a the manager they said she was in. So I asked when will she be in the staff said they didn’t know. I went back a few days later and still no manager to be found. I asked the girl at the desk to have her call me and I’m still waiting for the call two weeks later.

Comment Date: 1/29/2009 Name: Long Time Deercreek Bowler!
I have bowled a Deercreek since it opened, and I must say Vanessa has been one of the Best Managers that have come through that place, and I have seen many managers come and go. If you really have that kind of personal vendetta against her, your either an exemployee making a vandictive personal attack, or just a unhappy person that has nothing to do but attack good people without being held personally accountable on the internet. If your that upset why don’t you show some class and grow some b*lls and personally discuss your issues with the Manager. I am sure she will be more that happy to try to help. However if your accusions are baseless and you need to hide your identity by posting garbage on the internet, I am sure more garbage will come out of your mouth.

Comment Date: 1/2/2009 Name: league bowler
with all the bad pubicity on vanessa, i heard there is a petition to remove her from her duties WHERE DO WE SIGN!!! Send her back to Canada, BRING BACK SANDY AFTER VANESSA IS GONE!!!! Also maybe we should make the drive like Sandy and move all leagues to West Covina

Comment Date: 12/31/2008 Name: Vegas In Motion
Our league is happy to hear Sandy is back with Brunswick. Maybe we will have to move to West Covina. We miss her so munch, she always took care of us. Since she has been gone things are not the same.

Comment Date: 12/3/2008 Name: vanessa needs to be taught a lesson
wow vanessa (current store manager)…o I mean “Laughing all the way”…
Seems that more than just your employees have your # down. How unfortunate for you. All the backstabbing that goes on there. Constant headache I’m sure. A monster created only by yourself. Nice to see Sandy at Brunswick West Covina. At least Brunswick didn’t feel the need for her to leave entirely. I wonder how that makes you look to upper management. LOL. You had an awesome staff. But you’re the boss right? Have to make sure you show’em eh v? I am amazed at how long you have held on to your job. I would imagine your time is almost up. Sure you can feel it too

Have you seen the other girls at this place? One Hot Blonde after another!

lesslie the wife of the pro shop owner is hot!!!!!!!!!!!!

Comment Date: 8/4/2008 Name: sunday night bowler
this sunday night i dont know why or how uoyr employee would even allow this to happen but a patron was allowed to use the mike to announce that someone food was done by saying ” hey doushe bag your order is up” i dont think that was right. i at first thought it was an employee namede Derek and was later told he wasn’t the one But your snack bar crew should be scolded for even allowing this to happen I will pull my team out of this center if I hear nothing has happened to the center or at least those employees who thought that was funny

Comment Date: 7/30/2008 Name: outsider
whats wrong laughing ???? DOES THE TRUTH HURT

Comment Date: 7/23/2008 Name: outsider
you are a sour puss vanessa enjoy your job while you still can other people in that center can do your job and run circles around you doing it too

Comment Date: 7/23/2008 Name: outsider
ok laughing , how about leading by example instead of screaming and cussing namecalling instead of trying to fix a problem by making it into a bigger one a good manager will teach rather than scream a good manager will go out of there way to show than scream and cuss a good manager will not let things build to the point that league bowlers are not getting the fun of bowling in this center I keep reading that the manager comes down and talks to people and I have never seen or heard her do this while I’ve been there It seems like all she does is hide in her office agood manager will see things that should not have to be requested to fix them but notice and make sure they get done before a customer requests it to be fixed

Comment Date: 7/22/2008 Name: Laughing all the way
hard to believe the people can not think of anything better than- the center needs a new manager and the manager needs better customer service. No reasons, Nothing. Very Original. Try to think of something better that may be impressive and worth pondering. And I am sure that the Manager would fix the bathrooms if you requested it

Comment Date: 7/22/2008 Name: sunday morring bowler
manager needs to do a better job with customer service. The restrooms smell like piss both of them. the only good thing that the center has are the lanes.

Comment Date: 7/17/2008 Name: Laughing all the way
comments posted on a sunday? coincidence? I think not

Comment Date: 7/13/2008 Name: It’s time to go
This center needs a new manager.

Comment Date: 3/18/2008 Name: Sunday Night
I was at the alley on sunday and some league guy bowled a 300. It was so cool to see. The guy at the desk said league bowlers do it all the time. I think I’m going to start bowling in a league.

Comment Date: 2/19/2008 Name: Jessica
We have so much fun when we come here. Jason is so hot!!

What started out at Upland bowl ended at Deer Creek. The New Years Eve party was more money at Deer Creek but at the end of the night we had so much fun I didn’t care how much it cost. They gave us pasta and had lots of prizes they gave out.My family will now start to bowl here each week.

Comment Date: 12/29/2007 Name: Love to Bowl
Just stumbled on this site, and read the comments. What is that dudes problem, the one bitching about being an “established league bowler for 25 years”! If he was so “established”- why is he on here bitching? Man, people are crazy- get a life and grow up

Comment Date: 12/17/2007 Name: Mark
We had our holiday staff party on the sunday and this place ROCKS!!! We had a great time. The food and beer were great. Sandy and her staff ROCK!! We come every year and will be back.

Center record broken this morning- 855 series!

Comment Date: 11/3/2007 Name: League Bowler
Another 800 series this morning- and the guy shot 237, 300, 300! Insane! The lanes are awesome here- my average is up over 20 pins this year so far.

Comment Date: 10/19/2007 Name: Vegas Classic Bowler
Congratulations Russ Wells on your 825 series on Wednesday! Deer Ceek has had MAJOR honor scores in the past month, awesome!

I was in for open play and had a great time. When I was there a company party going on at the same time. Everyone was having a great time so I met with the Sales director and she helped me book a party for my company. She was very helpful with ideas for my event. When it came time for my party everything went great we had a wonderful time.

Comment Date: 10/7/2007 Name: League Bowler
This place has great service- we bowl twice a week at Deer Creek- and we have never had a problem. There was actually another 800 series bowled this morning when my team was there making up games. The people are always nice. They seem like they are having fun while they work- what a great job. We are always treated like we are valued, and the Manager even comes down and talks to us. We Love this place!

I had my childs birthday party at deer creek lanes and we had the best time. The service was great everyone was friendly.

Comment Date: 10/1/2007 Name: League Bowler
Good Job Mark on your 824 series last week.

Comment Date: 9/18/2007 Name: League Bowler
Apparently, atleast from what we are being constantly reminded of, Deer Creek has absolutely “no need or desire” to have leagues in this house. I find this to be quite odd seeing that a bowling center with all that guaranteed income from full leagues is a happy bowling center?? Whoa to all us bad people who have the oddacity to patronize an establishment on a Sunday evening. Personally, as an established league bowler for over 25 years, I am getting tired of hearing that Deer Creek makes more money on open play and we are just in the way. Maybe Deer Creek should close its doors to league competition and have nothing but open play? Atleast then when the center goes up for sale I can bid on it and remind Brunswick how to run a center!!!!!

Comment Date: 6/15/2007 Name: anonymous
The employees are great- and the Manager is awesome! She really cares about her customers and employees- you can tell. Clean, and good menu in snack bar.

Comment Date: 9/18/2006 Name: JUSTIN YOUNG
I like to say the word cucamonga! I bowl on leagues with billia and wild bill. Willde bill shot 276 and billya liked the snack bar and bowled 42 consecutive games.

Comment Date: 3/19/2006 Name: Jamie
I think that this bowling center has good people there in charge.

Comment Date: 11/24/2005 Name: n/a
Lane conditions are always nice but your staff has some big chips on their shoulders – they need some serious people skills.

Comment Date: 10/25/2005 Name: bob ferris
I absolutely love this place! I have been to bowling centers in many different states and I would have to say that this one is my favorites. Their employees were very courteous and their lanes, shoes and balls are in top condition! Their party hostesses are great too!
