The Dunes Course by Davis Love III
Diamante’s Dunes Course, ranked #36 in the world by GOLF Magazine in 2019, weaves its way through spectacular Pacific dunes and boasts amazing views of beach and ocean from nearly every hole. Add to that an awe-inspiring 14-acre practice facility, clubhouse restaurants and bars, retail center, on-course comfort stations every three holes, and Diamante’s signature service, and you’ve got an unforgettable golf experience. When Dunes Course designer Davis Love III first arrived on the Diamante site, he said, “It was like pulling up to St. Andrews.” Golf on the Dunes does share some similarities with the classic links courses in Scotland and Ireland–but here, the weather is warmer, the sand is whiter, and the sea is bluer.
TGR Design Golf Course: El Cardonal
The Tiger Woods designed El Cardonal course is Diamante’s second championship course and Tiger’s first-ever golf course design. Influenced by the old-style courses of Southern California that he grew up playing, Tiger created a course that brings back the need for strategy in golf–with several options to navigate each hole. The result is a course that challenges expert players, but provides options for those with higher handicaps as well. With Diamante’s signature on-course comfort stations and dramatic long-range views of the Pacific Ocean, natural arroyos, and native dunes, El Cardonal is a golf experience not-to-be-missed.
TGR Design Short Course: The Oasis
With a common goal of growing the game of golf, Tiger and Diamante teamed up to create Diamante’s third golf course facility–The Oasis Short Course. This 12-hole par three course surrounded by lush vegetation (including nearly 400 palm trees) and circling an 8-acre water feature is the perfect place for experts to hone their skills and beginners to learn the game.
Dunes Putting Course
The newest round of golf at Diamante could well be our most distinctive golf experience—and also our fastest. The Dunes Putting Course sits right outside the Clubhouse, on the scenic plot of ground that once housed the old par-4 18th hole of the Dunes course. This unique putting layout consists of 15 holes, laid out in a continuous loop that changes every day. One day you play the East course, the next day the West—their names reflecting the direction you play on the first hole. The Dunes Putting Course features three par-2s and twelve par 3s—and hours of fun for families and experts alike.
