Great Day at Diamondback

This was my first time playing Diamondback, and I had a great day. The staff were friendly, and I was pleasantly surprised that range balls were included. That helped me get a good warm up. I had a little of a wait behind some other groups, but the pace was pretty good. The course was in very nice shape. Fairways and greens were dry and firm. Just enough water and sand to make it interesting. I recommend this course, and plan to play it again.

Challenging for short hitters

I am an average (HCP 26) senior golfer and had difficulty clearing several water/marsh areas, even after laying up and being well positioned. Today the greens were very slow -- needed to be cut.

Greens very bumpy

Nice design but greens not in good shape, they don't roll true. Lots of bumps and looks like a fungus problem.

Disappointing

Got a good deal on Golfnow so I wasn't concerned about the half hour drive. The course however was wet making for a sloppy game. Insufficient ball washers to clean the clubs after shots. No drinking water. Containers were there but no water. Greens were inconsistent, some holding shots while most bounced like pavement. Not a fair layout for high handicappers or women. Too many carries over hazards (water or bunkers) in front of greens. I liked the challenge because I am a single digit handicap but my wife did not enjoy it because of the long carries.

the fairways were in great shape

The staff were all friendly. the pin placement one front nine seemed to be on a downhill slip. Backside greens were very bumpy. The pace of play was not fast but but it was a beautiful day still enjoyable! We were paired with a fun couple We had a fantastic time

Nice Course

Diamondback is a nice course for the average golfer. Due to the rain the couple of days before we played the course was very wet and it was cart path only. We enjoyed our round in spite of the conditions.

Over booked

This was our third time playing this course. I should have learned from the first 2 that they habitually over book. Waited over an hour to get off from scheduled tee time. We were paired up with another twosome and play in front of us was very slow. We will not go back or recommend this course.
