Challenging course!

This is a beautifully laid out course but so hard due to some super hard par 5’s with water hazards with other marsh hazards on nearly every hole! Bring a lot of balls as you will lose a few! Overall enjoyed the round.

Great course , very challenging

Great course , very challenging, thought the greens were a little slow, couple greens seemed really slow, but we came from out of state where we just played some fast greens, but over all a very good course, Bermuda grass was tough to find balls when you weren’t in the fairway but that’s Myrtle beach area .

Too many women

Woman’s tournament and too much water made this experience less than fun. Great course and good layout, were eclipsed by a woman’s outing. Front nine took us 2.5 hrs. They finally finished on hole 14, so we were able to finish like normal people once they were done. The course had not been mowed in several days, bc of the rain, maybe? Good course, but women are very slow golfers.

Hello, Eric. Thank you for reviewing the course. We would like to apologize for the delay of play during your round. Please know that this is by no means the standard we strive to achieve as we work hard to accommodate everyone who visits our course and allow our guest the chance to complete their rounds. With that in mind, we are working to best control pace and allow everyone to finish in a reasonable amount of time. We will continue to look for ways to improve. We are glad to see you rated the course conditions and layout to be great during your game. Thank you for playing Diamondback Golf Course. We hope to see you again soon.

Beautiful course.

The fairways are in great shape. Looks like they are getting the greens ready for the winter. They were a bit dandy and very slow. Beautiful golf course.

Very nice course

Course in good shape. Greens rolled true.
Great value. Would definitely play again! Not a whole lot of fluff, course was fairly straight forward. Only issue was finding our cart. Pleasant surprise when range balls were included!

Off the path beauty!

Diamondback is a true gem! Late August golf does not get any better.
The course has seen some noticeable improvements in the last few years, and shows the pride of the folks running the operation. The fairways and greens were near perfect, and the rough was appropriately manicured. This course is probably the best course on the Grand Strand as far as providing accurate and easily observed yardage to the centers of the greens. I wish more courses would provide this information as well as Diamondback. Not everyone is married to the high tech devices found today,

Go play it and enjoy a marvelous design, as well as a relaxing and fun round!

Morning Round at Diamondback

Very nice golf course with a very interesting layout. Plenty of turns and bends. .The course was in pretty good shape, but it is more than obvious it gets in excellent shape in the spring, early summer and fall. The staff were very professional and extremely nice. Nice driving range and putting facilities as well. The course is what I would call a second look golf course. I would definitely play it prior to playing in a tournament or competitive round as it has some places you don't want to hit that you may not see the first time (not many, but a few). Good time and I highly recommend it.

Quick round

Played a 2 1/2 round with another single. No one on the course after 1 pm. Extremely hot day, but enjoyed the round. Greens were in good shape after top dressing, but a little slow. Tees, fairways were all in good shape as well. Would get much more play if closer to Myrtle Beach.

I felt the course was in very good condition. The staff was very friendly. The price was very good especially for the course being very good. The greens rolled true but I wish they were a little faster. Had a great time.
