Immaculate

Diamondhead has always been a favorite of mine. The new greenskeeper has done an excellent job of restoring both courses to their original state. Well worth the money!

This course has some good challenges would be best played in dry contitions.

Course was very wet, unfortunately they had a very wet winter and it rained almost all day before our day of play. Greens were in excellent condition for winter time play. Cart Path only not a real issue, course relatively flat.

Great Course

Diamondhead has 2 courses. Today, we played the Cardinal. Challenging course, especially on the greens. They're nice, and like glass, so your speed has to be right, and your lines on. Fairways were nice, grass was plush, and sand traps were soft and maintained. A great value, and they have great specials. Props to the starter on 1 for some nice tips, too. Will be back.

Very fair course and in good shape

The staff was more than friendly and easy to deal with. The starter knew a lot about the course and offered value information at the 1st tee box. Play was swift with no waiting.

very friendly staff, and very helpful.

thouroughly enjoy the course, the greens were in excellent condition! Level tee boxes which is rare for us females to ever have, and the fairways were very neat. The rough was even user friendly! The only problem I had, was that the staff in the 19th hole/bar were extremely slow! Took forever to get waited on, and only when we notified them that we would like to have a menu and a drink did they wait on us, and we were sitting at the bar! None the less, the food was fantastic and the portions were fantastic!
