    »Black Diamond Ranch Golf & Country Club-Quarry Course

    On this magnificent course, five holes surround an old quarry. The entire course is full of hills, but the stark walls of the quarry are the trademark. It is remarkably beautiful and challenging. One of the great mysteries in Florida golf circles is why this track doesn't have the reputation it deserves. Play this course if you get an opportunity to do so. This is a private golf course.

    »El Diablo Golf & Country Club

    This very well regarded central Florida course is another fine piece of architecture from the Fazio family. El Diablo Golf & Country Club is visually stunning, with a wide variety of trees enveloping its fairways. A number of massive oaks are particularly beautiful. The landing areas are well defined and there are some elevation changes. The hills result in a blind shot or two. The par-3s, par-4s, and par-5s are very long from the Gold tees. This, combined with a formidable 147 slope rating from the Gold tees, should prompt an average player to choose the Blue or White tees.
