Great for beginners

Short coarse that is fine for beginners but for $40-$50 better to spend the extra $20 and play a regular sized course as you will get more golf out of it.

Walk in the Park

Great course layout designed for Families and beginner to intermediate golfers. Diamond in the Ruff is especially pleasing to the eye since it is very nicely groomed and has flowers everywhere.

Suggest you walk the course in order to really enjoy the atmosphere and get a little exercise.

A Beautiful Golf Course

We had a lovely round of golf at Diamond in the Rough. The course was beautiful with detailed attention paid to the flowers and flower boxes at the club house, starters hut and throughout the course. It was a lovely walk and a wonderful way to spend a Sunday in August.

Cottage country golf

The course is ok. A little dried out. The greens were pitted and dry with quite a few areas missing turf. I wouldn't go out of my way to play this course but would give it another shot if I was in the area.

Beautiful setting

A lovely find! Well groomed, a bit damp but that was based on morning dew and season. Enjoyed the game....8 and 9 were particularly challenging!

great day all around

This is a a nice course especially if you want a quick 9. Usually not too crowded in the afternoon. Its in excellent shape. Not long but scenic, challenging holes. My wife and I play it regularly.

Greens were terrible

The course was good, but the greens were terrible. I have never played on a course were you had to really hit the ball on the green. Greens were way to slow
and made golf not fun. Not that the greens were difficult, but the ball when struck seems to have breaks on it. Greens had to much of a sand base.
I would not recommend this course to anyone.

great experience for all levels

Would have given full 5 stars if they'd given us a heads up about the greens being air aided. Expected this time of season but nice to know ahead of time.
super friendly staff, best 9 hole course I've played, very pretty surroundings and over all great experience !
