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.

Beautiful course

Course was in great shape. Very nice greens and fairways. I cannot wait to go back to play again. It was definitely worth the little over an hour drive from my home.

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.
