Greatness in the Gulf Coast

The entire experience was top notch. Did not know when the tee time was booked, 2 days prior to play, that the greens had been airified a week before on the Cardinal course. The staff gave us a discount because did those. The greens we still healing but rolled pretty true. The rough was thick, so a missed shot made for difficult scoring. The fairways were the highlight. Will play again soon.

Alright course

Decent course, super slow rate of play. Sat behind a 4 some that dribbled balls to the green but wouldn’t let anyone pass. Also had multiple staff members come to talk to me about the way I dressed.. even though they all saw me in the clubhouse. I was wearing khaki shorts and a tiger woods like athletic shirt. I was told that “owner saw me and didn’t like the way I dressed”

Best Golf Course Experience!

I have played golf for 45 years, and I've played some very nice courses. Diamondhead is spectacular. The staff is friendly. The fairways are wide, and the greens are fast. No two holes are alike. The overall condition of the course was excellent. I play to play Diamondhead frequently now. The scenery was remarkable.
