Great golf is the hallmark of Black Diamond Ranch and it has received countless accolades since the opening of the Quarry Course in 1987. The 18-hole Quarry Course is a Golf Magazine Top 100 pick. To reach the Top 100, a course needs 18-great holes. Here 13 are great, and the five that play over, around, and down into an abandoned quarry are just spectacular.
The forty-five holes of golf include the Quarry Course, The Ranch Course, The Highlands Course and Diamond Dunes, a 4-hole, par 3 course. Designed by Tom Fazzio these courses are not only challenging but also offer amazing views.
