DIAMOND

Diamond-9 features long and narrow fairways, hazard carries, interesting doglegs and small targets. Golfer's have little margin for error off the tee. Diamond's 4th hole was among the Top 18 Holes in the Toronto Sun's 2002 Golfer's Choice Awards.

    TIP FROM THE PRO

    Using a fairway wood or long iron, your tee shot should favour the left side of the fairway. A high, soft shot is preferable to this firm, well-guarded green.

    TIP FROM THE PRO

    Long hitters must be wary of using driver off this tee, as it brings the fairway bunker into play and increases your risk of finding the water on the right. Note the pin position on this long narrow green.

    TIP FROM THE PRO

    Situated above a valley along the right side, this hole can reach up and bite you if you’re not careful. Take note of which way the tree tops are blowing, as you may not feel the wind on this hole.

    TIP FROM THE PRO

    One of the best par 5’s you’ll ever play. Take what this hole gives you, as greed will be penalized. A fairway wood or long iron off the tee, followed by a lay-up to the 150 yard marker is the smartest play.

    TIP FROM THE PRO

    A solid left to right tee shot will leave you with a mid-iron to this three-tiered green. If you hit the wrong section of the green, expect a roller coaster putt where 3 and even 4 putts are not uncommon. Par is a great score on this hole.

    TIP FROM THE PRO

    A tee shot right is trouble and left is worse. Playing from the short grass is key to success here. Note the colour of the flag, and trust your yardage as the hole location can be deceiving from the fairway.

    TIP FROM THE PRO

    Another solid par 3 awaits. Choose your club wisely, as this green is shallow, guarded by four bunkers, a creek in front and O.B. at the back. Good Luck!

    TIP FROM THE PRO

    A solid tee shot down the left will catch the down slope, leaving a short iron into the green. A large undulation bisects the green, so keep your approach shot near the pin to avoid a devilish putt.

    TIP FROM THE PRO

    Your best shot at getting home in two is to bomb a drive down the left side of the fairway. If going for it, check your yardage carefully as it’s all carry over the pond that protects the green.
