“Stunning layout but too penal to have fun.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2012

If you're a scratch golfer and really want tested, this is a course for you. If you're an average golfer and don't like losing half a dozen balls playing golf, stay away from this track. Not sure what they were shooting for when it was designed but it's way too difficult for most golfers to enjoy.

“You better hit them straight here”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2011

Black Diamond is not the longest course you will hit, although there is a par 6 650 yard hole on the front 9, but it is a great course in the middle of cow country. Nice fairways, beautiful greens and nice scenery along the entire course. The fairways are tighter than most but the rough is not a severe penalty. There are a couple of holes where they force the driver back in your back so you have to use some strategy, but for the most part you can swing the club you want.
All in all I really liked this course. Worth the visit. Don't go for the club house, you will be dissappointed. Go for the golf. In fact, take your wife to amish country and drop her off at a cheese barn for a few hours and tell her you want to look at a piece of furniture for your anniversary and go hit the course. Sure, she probably put on 20 pounds in free sample cheese but it will be worth it.

“time well spent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2009

i played this course just last week and it is truly an impressive layout they way they have carved out a course in this region is amazing the views are awesome and the golf is pure you have to think on every shot, the course seem to me to need a little help though it was lacking some sand in the traps and the all around look of the fairways was in need of a trim job but the greens were excellent. I will return in the fall not only for the golf but i can only imagine what it will look like in it's fall foilage.

“Three years running”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2003

Our group has played the course three years running and love it! It is challenging to even the best golfers and just plain fun for the weekend hacker. The layout is awesome. Play it, you will love it!

“Diamond In The Rough”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2003

Black Diamond is one of the finest golf courses I have played. The fairways and greens are in immaculate condition, and the views from every hole are absolutely breathtaking. It is hard to argue with putting on a green with wildlife next to you in a perfectly preserved environmental area. I can hardly wait to play this fantastic course once again. It was well beyond my expectations and the 90 minute drive home was spent marvelling at the experience we had just completed.
