“Overpriced for the condition of the greens”

The Diplomat Golf & Tennis Club

Attraction details
Reviewed 30 April 2014

I know it's Florida and keeping greens in good shape is tough, but they could do better. They were uneven, with exposed sand showing through and so hard that it was almost impossible to repair pitch marks. (Good news, you had to really hit one up there to leave a mark. Bad news, enough players did so that there were many, many marks.) Also, the first two holes are incredibly badly marked. I could not figure out where to aim my tee shot on either one, even with the help of the on-cart GPS, and wound up way off track despite hitting the ball pretty much where I was aiming, for once. (A few holes from the end I found an overview of the course, which would have helped - hidden on the GPS, not on the back of the scorecard - which is printed sideways for some odd reason.) The fairways are wide and in decent shape. Lots of water on the front nine, less so on the back, and no real rough assuming you stay out of the palm trees. (There's some spinach-like stuff that passes for rough on a few holes, but it's only an inch and a half deep and super easy to hit from with at most a one-club effect on distance and no grabbing of the hosel.) It was relatively uncrowded on a weekday April afternoon and I finished in three hours, which was great.

had lunch here recently and was extremely disappointed! VERY LIMITED MENU. Since the hotel has closed and the eating traffic is non-existent the food menu has suffered greatly! The menu
was so limited I could not decide what to order. And when my food choice finally did arrive it was sparse to say the least. Don't eat here if you have a hardy appetite!

This course is worth a visit. Well maintained, not too expensive and fun. Good service in the pro shop, great greens - what more can you ask for?

Nice mature golf course. Well laid out. In really nice shape although the greens were a little suspect at time. The greens were like putting on a pool table. I didn't have a 2 put more that once. Couldn't read them to save my life. I would play it again. Surprisingly inexpensive.
