Starter met us in the parking lot with a cart and it was all great going forward. We had a noon tee time and aside from a short wait at the turn we got done in 4 hours. The course was in good shape but seemed a little dry. This seems to be the case at all courses as we have had a dry season. The green fee is at the top of the range for conditions, but we would not hesitate to go back and probably will soon.

We had a 5 some in front of us and 3 holes open front of them by the time we got to the 9th hole.

We had a 3 some behind us that push us all day.

The ranger would ride by but not speed up play.

5 hour round of golf, slow even on a Saturday

any serious club golfer should avoid this place on weekends if you want to avoid 5-6 hour rounds. They book far too many duffers making this a family picnic outing with no sense of play, rules, courtesy or consideration for the course or other players.

For $32.00 travel a little further and enjoy your round

Nice course and will play again. I like the layout which includes some elevation changes. some short but challenging par 4's, and some very challenging par 3's.Greens were in good shape and reasonably fast. Fairways were ok and rough was in very poor shape. Had some bare lies in the rough. I would attribute the poor conditions in the rough and fairways to lack of rain this winter. I have played this course twice and both times the pace of play was slow (approximately 4.5 hours to finish the round both times). The first time was due to a slow and particularly loathsome forsum. The second time was due to a crowded course. Overall the course is very nice and we will be back.

We were the first group on the course, and I am glad for that. We played on a Monday. I have heard that if you wait later in the day (After 9am) it gets backed up quick. Greens are immaculate, tee boxes and fairways in good shape too. Staff was very friendly, even offered to take me back to my car when I was dropping off the cart.

The e-mail I received from GolfNow after booking online quoted the price as 2 x $33 plus $9.60 = $75.60, with $4.98 payable online, leaving $70.62 to pay at the course.

In fact we were charged 1 x $32 plus 1 x $35 + $4.69 tax = $71.69.

I don't really care about the $1.07 extra, but I don't understand why the course charged differently from the online booking???.

Please accept my apologies on behalf of the Diamond Hill staff. The standard golfnow rate rings up as $32. Sometimes this point of sale system will ring up different rates when checking in multiple people, and we have to manually change to the correct rate. It sounds like 1 standard $32 golfnow rate and 1 $35 regular rate (either weekday morning or weekend midday) were rung up at once. I will be sure to alert the staff to watch for this issue.

Thank you!

The condition of the greens were pretty rough and some of the fairways.... The rough was hard ground... overall not too bad! I'd play again, hopefully with a little better conditions!

It's a fun corse to play. I've played it twice in one week.

If you like rolling hill this is a place to play " hills for Florida out side of Tampa "

The 2 bad parts

1 No ranger out on corse to keep the game moving

2 Lazy golfers not fixing there divits on fairway and greens.

If you have not played ever or not played recently.

It's a must at this time. I'm a single digit handicap, and the blue tees were fine. The USGA recommendations were great and helped this course.

Very ungilated and totally diff than the other courses around it. New owners spent slot of time making it playable and enjoyable.

Go play I'm glad we did.
