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.

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.

We've played this course several times lately. The greens are very good. The fairways are improved, over several years ago, but still are a bit rough and have some bad grass. It is a challenging course. We like the back 9 better. It has some water and is generally in better shape. The carts are good. The staff is always friendly. We'll be back.

There is construction on the front, I even called before and they claimed it was not part of the golf course. I would differ. Lots of ground under repair, heavy equipment, workers, etc. And the layout was strange - tight and narrow landing especially for second shots. I would not play this course again.

Has a lot of construction going on will be a very nice track when complete. The layout will test your ability bring all your clubs.

Greens and fairway in good shape greens were fast. We had a nice round would recommend.

A lot of construction on the front 9 so will be better when this is complete. However the course was not affected too much but cart paths were dug up in some areas. Back 9 is good. Greens in good shape.
