HAINES CITY, Fla. (March 27, 2007) - You might play Diamondback Golf Club the first time with your driver out. The next time you play the golf course, you\'ll leave it in the bag with the cover tightly sealed with duct tape.
Better yet, leave it in your car. Better yet, leave it at home. You might want to consider putting it in a safe deposit box
Diamondback is a parkland course set out in the wide, empty spaces of rural Polk County, southwest of Orlando. But the course squeezes itself into these wide-open spaces, with its tight, narrow, tree-lined fairways with tiny, itty-bitty, shifting, hard-to-hit landing areas.
The first time you play it, you will lose many golf balls, unless you\'re Fred Funk or a laser-guided smart bomb.
\"This is a course-management course,\" said Brian Whitaker, who has played it many times. \"It\'s not a smack it as far as you can and go find it course.\"
If you do smack it, you will not find it, if you\'re a little wayward. The fairways are bordered by the sort of thick growth familiar in the undeveloped parts of central Florida. Then there is the matter of the course\'s namesake, the diamondback rattler. What I\'m saying is bring plenty of golf balls if you plan to use the big stick.
