This course had elevation changes all over, tee shots are at a premium otherwise you are looking at a wall of 60 foot pine trees for your approach and that rarely ends well

The course was in great shape, the only issue I had was they were watering the greens between groups, the greens went from quick to slow from hole to hole depending on whether they had turned the water on or not, drastic change in speed,

Put timers on boys and water at night, the greens are hard enough without you changing the speeds and making us stand in the fairway waiting for the water to get turned off

22 Deg., sunny and little wind. What more could you ask for? One of me and my wife's favorite courses with it's great scenery and the fact that you get two kinds of courses, links and traditional all in one challenging package. Course has greened up nicely and since they are now able to water the greens they are in good shape. Love the 10th. This time it got me but there's always a next time.

I play diamond pretty frequently, Tuesday was my second lap around this year and I’m not sure I’ve seen it in better shape. It drains so well and the greens are in phenomenal shape. They’re wet enough that they’re receptive and holding shots well and still rolling beautifully and are relatively quick for the time of year. For $35 w/cart after 2ish it’s a no brainer. Like what they’ve done with the 3rd hole making it reachable for the bombers, 11 and 12 are still bad holes in my opinion but the rest would stand up on any course around. Well done BD!

First round year here this year and surprised how good the conditions were considering the late start to the season. Greens are greening up and pretty smooth to putt. Very few winter kill spots. Supposed to start at 2:04 but the tee sheet was open and we started early. Round in under 4 hours. Course should be perfect in a couple of weeks with some warm weather and a little rain.

I have been playing Black Diamond since it first opened and it is still my favorite course in the area. It's mixture of link and wooded holes, combined with elevation changes makes for an extremely enjoyable round. Course always seems to be in great shape.

Given that the course just opened it was in excellent condition. The setting is beautiful in the Hills South of Peterborough. Some of the holes are on the quirky side but overall it is a great golf experience.

It was very cold but we still enjoyed our round, definitely a course for the long ball hitter, it requires some patience on a few holes because there wasn't to much of the fairway that was flat , guite challenging but a lot of fun

Tuesday off work, decided to play a round and ended up playing with 3 members who were teeing off at the same time. Players in front were verrrrry slow, and no marshals on a Tuesday in October so round took longer than necessary :-( BUT members knew the course very well, and had good fun playing a round with them so all was well in the end :-) Thanks for a good day on the golf course
