Diamante (Dunes)

Davis Love III/Mark Love, 2010/Paul Cowley, 2016, 2016

Diamante’s free-form architecture rests gently on the land, and the absence of any hard lines let the golfer’s eye soak in the delightful contrast between the dazzling Pacific Ocean, the dunescape and the emerald playing surfaces. Its random green contours are noteworthy as is the construction technique that left micro-undulations in the fairways. Spectacular ocean views often come with the price of atrocious playing conditions but not here. (Down 34)
