There can never be anything more dynamic a course in Orlando than the Diamondback Golf Club. And that is even with half of it generally bare. This is one of the highly favored, average-priced courses that golfers go to in Orlando for their golf vacations. No unusual displays, nothing too fancy. There is just a lot of golf and a lot of fun all in a single location.
Designed by Joe Lee, the Diamondback Golf Club was opened in 1996 and measures 6,805 yards from the tips, playing for a par of 72. What makes this golf vacation destination really interesting and a hit among golfers – local and visiting alike – is the fact that for a course that follows the natural contours of the land, it is highly varied in terrain. It is a salad bowl of natural swamplands and virgin forests and flat lands – all that texture can be experienced throughout the 18 holes. It feels like a little bit of Florida and a lot of other places. Oaks and pines with a little helping of citrus groves compose these woods that give more than enough distance and danger in between holes and greens.
Generally speaking, the Diamond Golf Club is fun and playable. This may not be the easiest and most relaxing course in the world, but hey. Nobody wants to be a sixth grader in a kindergarten course! Every round here is also an explosion of different emotions and reactions brought about by the levels of excitement that almost every hole gives. And each golf trip here will definitely be different from the last; no wonder golfers come here over and over and over.
