Great course!

Took a weekend trip to hot springs and we decided on playing diamongead, we were not disappointed! The course was phenomenal, had some good dog legs, awesome elevation change, greens were in good condition. Next time I'm in town I will play again for sure.

Pretty layout

Played from whites- 6100 or so. Pretty tight, fairways ok, greens had be top dressed and grass hadn’t really come back that well. Very slow and sandy. No water or ice or a cup to be had except to buy. No water on course. No food or drink amenities to be had. Overall a below average experience!

A challenge for every club

Fairway or creekbed? Take your pick. No forgiveness or second cut of any kind, straight down the creekbed. Elevations are all over the place, mostly all up hill. Dog legs are 150 yards and then sharp turns, nothing you can draw or fade into (and there are a lot of them).

No hot food, drink cart, GPS or any modern amenities on the course.

Greens are half cut-down weeds that jump your ball off line. The course would be good if not for this alone.

You will score higher than your handicap on your first go through it just for not knowing the course.

Would Not Go Back

The layout could be fun if you can overlook significant areas around greens, in the rough right off the fairways and on the tee boxes where there is nothing but mud and or rocks. It’s early season but it’s apparent these areas never have grass or other turf cover growing. Again early season following rain the prior evening, but even still the greens were long and shaggy and fairway grass sparse. We had played Pounce the day before and course conditions were significantly better even though there were rains the night before. We called the number on the website to inquire about cart path only status and were told the course was fully open to carts. I even asked the same question a different way to confirm carts were allowed on fairways and was told yes. We drove 40 minutes to get there only to find out it was cart path only. I told the person checking us in that we had called and were told it was open. He told me I had to ask for the course! Well how was I supposed to know I wasn’t talking to the course when they answered the number from the course website using the course name. When I shared this thought the attendant became very huffy and basically scolding me for not knowing it was actually golf now. Enough said. It was inexpensive to play and we got what we paid for..
