Love the layout

Fairways ok, a couple of the greens were not good but over all enjoyable. Nice to play a course that makes you think. Well worth it, will be back

Lake Diamond Golf Course

Course was in decent shape, some fairways needed to be cut lower. Greens were good and a little quick. Fun course and willl play again soon, good value.

Challenging Course

We play this course every month. We like the back 9, especially. It's in a bit better shape and has a lot of character. Today, we found the greens in pretty good shape--just a couple with some dry spots. Number 10 and number 18 are great par 5s. The pro shop is friendly. We'll keep coming back periodically.

Excellent staff, friendly course

Lake Diamond near Ocala is getting better all the time. It is a great value for the money and we play it often. The staff is very friendly and helpful especially Darren and Terry. We will keep going to this course often.

Golf on a building site

Played here before but didn't know the the whole area around the course is now a massive construction site.

Probably won't go back until it's all complete

Get there early

Experienced the same situation as with my prior play there. Showed up early for 1 pm tee time and staff showed zero control over or concern for players matching up or RESPECT for the assigned tee time. I hurried to 1st tee 1/2 hr ahead of time to catch a twosome i was supposed to play with already teeing off. Yes, I like the course , but not the way Lake Diamond manages play. Singles signing up should beware of this happening.

Fairways and greens in great shape

Fast check in. Free coffee and popcorn. Greens are fast and a challenge. Didn't have a straight putt all day. All benders.
