Teamed with another golfer and had the course to ourselves at the 8:30am tee time on Sunday. Enjoyed the course layout even though 3 fairways were soggy from heavy rains the night before. Good test for all players.

I've only been golfing for about two months. This course was very challenging for me being a beginner. The clubhouse was very nice, staff was friendly and the fairways in good shape. Most of the greens were in great shape, but there were a few holes where they needed some love. Most of the rough parts were on the outer perimeter of the green, so putting wasn't really hindered. I agree with previous posters that the course needs yardage markers, signs indicating what hole you're on and if its a par 3, par 4 or par 5. Other than that, I enjoyed my visit and will play here again.

From the moment they greet you at the bag drop, until you drive out of the parking lot at the end of your round, the staff really do appreciate you playing at their course. The club house has a good menu that will satisify most hungers either between 9's or at the end of your round.

The course is in fabulous shape and you can see the improvements are being made.

The greens were a bit rough due to the late frost they recieved... but even after 3 inches of rain 2 days ago the course recovered well with no wet spots.

Fabourite par 4 is number 4 .. a dogleg right with water to carry and an elevated green with water on 3 sides ... You need to be careful on that second shot. Anything too far left or long and you'll fall off into the water.

Favorite par 3 is number 9. 128 yards all carry over water .... They removed the bunker that was in front of the green.... but the ground is so soft that a shot missed short will plug ....

Overall a great course and challenging from all tee blocks

Highly recommend you put Diamondback on your playlist

We were not told it was cart path only until we read it on a sign on the first hole. The group playing behind us stayed on top of us even though we were waiting on the group ahead of us the whole round. The greens were in bad shape from airateing, need more sand rounding. Would not play there again.

We heard the course was okay but at this time it's not in great shape. Apparently they lost their greens last year and you can tell because they slice seeded them and they were only about 60%. Fairways were marginal. There are no tee markers to tell you what hole you are on. Outside of the 150 stake in the fairway, there are no yardage markers. There are no ball washers on the course. This course has potential but it needs time to recover from whatever happened and it needs a significant investment in basic on-course amenities.

Diamondback is a challenging course as the tee shots are pretty tight. Greens and fairways in decent condition and play moved right along. A little out of the way but all in all, a good value for the money.

It had rained heavily the previous day so the course still had several wet spots, including the sand traps. About half the greens were in poor shape, but still puttable. Challenging layout, with trees lining all holes. Second time playing the course and will play again the next time in Myrtle Beach.
