What can you guys tell me about The Wizard? Never played and I don’t think I have ever heard of it.
I’ve heard of Diamondback but have never played it.

Played Diamondback last year. The rough was terrible. We lost a ton of balls in our foursome that just rolled right out of the fairway. Good Luck.August 19, 2022 at 7:58 pm #51248Jim KavanaghParticipant
Wizard is where you go when you absolutely have to break 80.August 20, 2022 at 2:24 am #51263Rick KimbrellParticipant
I have played Diamondback many times. I STRONGLY suggest you try and play a practice round there. It plays tight and requires you to not spray the ball.August 20, 2022 at 6:25 am #51264Tom DoughanParticipant
Don and Sir Rick are both correct. I played Diamondback on Round 4 last year. I enjoyed the challenging layout and hospitality from the employees. However the rough was ridiculously long. We lost balls all day (including 1 of my own a foot into the rough) even when all 4 of us saw where each ball went. I also advise scouting the course so you can get familiar with the holes and the drives you’ll want to hit.August 20, 2022 at 7:17 am #51265james mcdanielParticipant
all you really need to know is the slope is 139…at lest for the distance my flt will play it. hey scott, 6200plus yrds for us old guys? really??

James: I saw the 139 slope and really can’t believe it. That says it’s a pretty tough course. I don’t believe that I have ever played a WA Course with a Slope greater than 130 as they are usually in the 125 range.
Scott: Is this really the WA’s intention?
