The Pines at Diamondhead Country Club was the first of two 18-hole golf courses built on the property. The semi-private course opened in 1969.

Designed by Earl Stone, the Pines measures 6,817 yards from the longest tees and has a slope rating of 134 and a 73.5 USGA rating. The golf course features four sets of tees for different skill levels.

The major challenges for both courses are their tree-lined fairways. The Pines Course has well-placed bunkers and water that comes into play on many holes.

Golf Digest rated the Pines Course as the sixth best public course in the state for 1996.

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.

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.

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!
