“Challenging course”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

This was a very challenging course. Lots of hills, very interesting shots, but fun to play. A little pricey but they give Senior citizen discounts.

“Love it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

I golf around at different courses, and this was a very enjoyable time, a bit different, just not the same flat up and back fairways. Very nice course!

“Not for the faint of heart”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

If you can hit your driver dead straight then you might enjoy this course. If you miss the narrow fairways by even a bit there's a good chance you won't find your ball. The rough is more like British Open gorse. Golf is supposed to be fun and it's not fun when your knees are knocking on all 18 tee shots. My advice would be to look at it from the parking lot (what you see is what you get) and decide for yourself if you'd like to give it a try. Personally, being a bogey golfer, I need a little more room to spray it around.

“Stunning layout but too penal to have fun.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 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 stars Reviewed September 8, 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.
