The stunning Quarry Course, the first at Black Diamond, is consistently recognized as one of America’s greatest. While the list of awards and accolades is impressive, it could never compare to the experience of playing it. Beginning with the elevated tee shot on the 424-yard first hole, the front nine redefines golf in Florida. You’ll experience dramatic elevation changes, classic bunkering, and fairways framed with thousands of beautiful live oaks, dogwoods, myrtles, and magnolias. While it’s difficult to choose the most outstanding hole on the front nine, perhaps the two par 5’s, the fifth and ninth best exemplify the beautiful, but challenging experience that awaits you.
The Quarry Course at Black Diamond. Simply breathtaking. The 14th, 15th and 16th holes are carved over and around canyon walls and combine challenging shot making opportunities with more awesome views. This magical stretch of holes, called by writer Dan Jenkins “the best five consecutive holes of golf anywhere in the world” ends with the 218-yard par-3 17th. The 17th drops down into the smaller quarry to a green guarded left and rear by 30-foot high limestone cliffs, and it looks like it’s from another world another time.
