Richmond Hill, Ontario L4E 1A2
In the hills just north of Toronto, you have an opportunity to traverse the high and low ground of DiamondBack Golf Club just like touring pros who have played big-time tournaments at this highly respected layout.
This Richmond Hill course, which opened in 1993, appears daunting with its humps, bumps and forced carries. But it is surprisingly playable for less skilled golfers, while better players have a great time attacking it and meeting the challenges doled out by designer Rene Muylaert.
The front nine is defined by hill and dale and lots of water, while the mature-looking back nine dips into valley lands carved out of thick trees. The island green on No. 8 is one of many highlights. The dramatic bunkering and varied green sites are key parts of DiamondBack’s diabolical charms.
