Diamond Hill Golf & Country Club in Dover, Florida stretches over rolling hills where there is no shortage of water. Dry greens are never a concern as water hazards come into play frequently throughout the golf course. The greens vary in speed from medium to fast and the fairways are lined with towering trees. In addition to the water, there are also numerous bunkers that are strategically placed throughout. The golf course has some challenging par 3s, especially if it is a windy day. With several holes playing over water and a few houses close to the golf course, well placed tee shots are essential to scoring well at Diamond Hill.

Course was in great shape, greens are very firm and fast with a lot of undulations. It will test your putting. Our foursome all want to go back and play again.

Best part of the course are the greens. They are in great shape. They run true and are fairly fast. The fairways are average. The ground is hard and they cut them very short so it’s hard for the average golfer to get under the ball or take a divot. The worst part were the starters. They just let people go paying no attention to tee times which can clog it up from the beginning but the two times I’ve gone the players ediquitte has been great and they police themselves. I’ve enjoyed both rounds

This is my go to golf corse. Love the layout. Greens are always nice. Sort of inconsistent but that makes the play more difficult which I don’t mind. Great place to play if you haven’t already.

Played in a league few years back. It was rough back then. This course has been taken care of very well. Best shape I have ever seen. Greens are real nice and the fairways actually have grass! I will definitely be playing more golf at Diamond Hills.

We arrived ready to tee off Sunday at 11:15am. When I called to ask about the pace the staff claimed it was busy but should clear up by our tee time. What was supposed to be a 11:15 tee time ended up being a 12:30pm tee time. There were 4 foursomes ahead of us!! I’ve played the course several times and enjoy it but this was simply horrible tee time management.

Well I have to say the course has always had exceptional greens that are fast and roll true, despite the rest of the course looking like a goat farm. For this I will say the average golfer will appreciate the layout, so if you have never been give it a try. There are houses that line the course, so you will here family arguments on certain tee boxes. No. 15 is a beauty to behold, an elevated green hitting into a oblong green guarded by a well placed bunker, placed perfectly just in case you don't clear the water and come up short, so go long. I have always found the course crowded, even on what you would think would be a slow day. The hired help seem to favor the locals, so don't expect a warm welcome. I would suggest my Sunday group coming here, but the course as a whole,has too many negatives going for it, maybe in the summer when the rates drop, I or we will play Diamond.

The course has fast challenging greens, Day I played was windy and pace of play was very slow.

Lots of dormant grass very hard and tight lies around greens.

Interesting holes, will definitely play again.

I found Diamond Hill to have hardpan fairways and greens so firm that even if I hit a pitching wedge onto the green (which were mostly mounded) the ball invariably rolled off. Staff was friendly, but course conditions were far from ideal.

Lots of hardpan on the course. Lots of roll on fairways, but you had better place the ball in a good position. There are overhanging limbs--too often--on the fairway. If you have even a slight slice/hook the rool-off will get you in deep-deep trouble. Greens were hard, too, and would not hold. Adjustment had to be made for shots into the green!

The course was in good shape for this time of the year. The pace was good until the 15th then it started to back up. I will be back again. It was an enjoyable outing.

When I arrived there were no carts and was told drive your car up and unload your bag. Pace of play was very slow. The greens are very good and a challenge to read. And several doglegs were 90 degrees and not indicated on

the card. On the turn got a self serve hot dog but no one to take your money, just left money on the bar. The staff did not seem to care about customer service.
