This course was in very bad shape. The fairways were awful. It was only $20 to play but wouldn't play it if it was free. My group ended up playing 4 holes and left because it was in such bad shape. We played several courses over the weekend. We flew in from North Carolina just to play golf. We played all the local courses near us. You can play a lot nicer courses for close to the same money. We chose this course because it had decent reviews. Fairways were full of sand and patchy grass that wasn't green. I wouldn't recommend this course to anybody. Not even sure how they get business. This may be the course for you if you like hitting out of sandy fairways and don't care about your game or your golf clubs. I never leave reviews but I didn't want anybody to waste their money like we did.

Played the course once in a while. Not the best but I can get on in High Season. Greens are generally good

but the fairways still need work for the most part.

The people that run the place were friendly and very helpful! One woman drove home to retrieve sun tan lotion for us!

The course was long and well worth the money and travel time from the villages.

I will be back for sure. Five stars!

I always look forward to playing lake diamond. Greens are in great shape. Fairways are a bit sparse but a great value for the money. Very slow play due to a foursome who didn't have sense to let people play through.

I was really impressed of how much work that have put into the course. The tee boxes are in great shape, the fairways are really great with green grass, the bunkers are in great shape, the greens are super, slow but that is something you have to get use to. I will be recommending this course to all my friends and the Pine Oaks golf league buddies.

Played Sunday afternoon - only 9 holes as we had other things to do. Fariways were very plush, greens were cut nicely - made for a perfect afternoon. The windy day created its own challenges that added to the fun. Counter worker was very nice.

The course as I understand is on the way towards better conditions. Overall, we thought it was a good course with adequate fairways and better than average greens. The front nine as mentioned in other reviews has lost a bit of it's view due to subdivision clearing of the woods. The back nine is very different with it being a more established residential area. We were impressed with the need for a shot maker course. Keep the driver in the bag most of the back nine. Let the big dog eat on the front. We will be back for sure.

We used to play Lake Diamond because it was so cheap. Now there is new management, it shows, the fairways were bad. Now you can see how improved they are with new grass growing all over and they are being tended to. The greens were average but now are nice and manicured although they still have too much off a crown. It is a challenging course and a lot of fun

This year has seen a rapid rise in the cost of golfing at this course. it is an average course but its green fees are only a few dollars below the best courses. You have to question whether you should spend a couple dollars more and play one of the better courses in the Ocala area.

Fairways are a lil rough and hard but the greens are nice. I was impressed. Maybe when the new homes get built, the course will get better. I recommend this course, especially for practice. I couldnt pass the price. Im definitly going again.
