Very nice course but wet

The course was beautiful, especially the front nine with no homes lining fairways. There had been a lot of rain recently and on the day of play, so the course was soaking wet with balls plugging in a lot of spots. But the layout is great, and I'm looking forward to going back when it's dry.

Excellent Winter Greens

Really enjoyed my first time to play this course. Loved the layout! Lots of variety with the holes. Fairways in pretty good condition considering the level of rain they’ve had. Really enjoyed the firm and true greens. Will play this course again next time I’m on the Strand.

Nice Course

Course had some challenge and was in great shape. Pace of play was fine but had a 5'some in front of us. We really enjoyed the numerous dog leg layout and the greens were fast and true. Overall this is a great course for the amount paid and we would return.

very challenging course!

Diamondback is a difficult course. Between water and wetlands and sand and tight fairways on a few of the holes, it’s easy to get in trouble. The greens are fairly fast and I had some trouble reading them. All in all a fun round of golf ...

Course was very wet due to heavy watering after over seeding. No advance warning of cart path only requirement was disappointing. Over seeding was taking off nicely and should provide good conditions in coming weeks.

Challenging course!

This is a beautifully laid out course but so hard due to some super hard par 5’s with water hazards with other marsh hazards on nearly every hole! Bring a lot of balls as you will lose a few! Overall enjoyed the round.

Great course , very challenging

Great course , very challenging, thought the greens were a little slow, couple greens seemed really slow, but we came from out of state where we just played some fast greens, but over all a very good course, Bermuda grass was tough to find balls when you weren’t in the fairway but that’s Myrtle beach area .

Too many women

Woman’s tournament and too much water made this experience less than fun. Great course and good layout, were eclipsed by a woman’s outing. Front nine took us 2.5 hrs. They finally finished on hole 14, so we were able to finish like normal people once they were done. The course had not been mowed in several days, bc of the rain, maybe? Good course, but women are very slow golfers.
