Place your drive down the centre of the fairway to avoid the waste areas down both sides of this hole. This is a relatively short hole but check your yardages and take enough club to reach this heavily contoured green.
Hole 2 – Corridor
The best advice here is to keep your ball straight down this long and narrow corridor. Play your percentages, carefully pick your landing areas and steer clear of the deep greenside bunker.
Hole 3 – Jaws
A short but deceptive uphill par 3 hole. This elevated green location makes club selection very important. Should you fall short of this undulating green then the Jaws located well below the green will gather in your ball.
Hole 4 – Fox hole
Although this hole appears to be very narrow from the tee, there is actually more room available than you think. However, don’t allow your drive to slide too far right as the fairway falls sharply off into the waste area and your approach into the semi blind green will be blocked off by tall trees.
Hole 5 – Wall
This is an average length par 5 hole with a green that hangs out over the lake. A right to left tee shot is required here, although too far left as your ball will either end up a long way below the fairway or in the scrub vegetation. Should you manage to find the higher section of fairway, then it may be possible to reach this green in 2 shots, providing that you can get over the wall!
Hole 6 – Plateau
A green located on a high plateau, with steep sided slopes and a strong cross wind make this a really tough, target par 3 hole.
Hole 7 – Faldo’s choice
Faldo’s choice is simple. Either play safe towards the higher ground or go for the green in one shot. Either way the green slopes from left to the right towards 3 deep greenside bunkers with dense native vegetation all around. Which ever way you choose to play this hole, accuracy and control are of the utmost importance.
Hole 8 – Twins
The tight line off the tee is between the 2 large pines and the 2 bunkers set into the bank of the lake. Providing you manage to avoid both sets of twins then you will be rewarded with a shorter pitch into this difficult green. Should you take the more cautious approach and play down the centre of the fairway, then you will have a much longer approach shot into the green which must carry over the cavernous greenside bunker.
Hole 9 – Straight home
Time to head straight home with a well placed drive that will hopefully avoid the 4 fairway bunkers. Ideally, the right side of the fairway is preferred as this will present you with a clearer view into this heavily bunkered green complex with the sanctuary of the clubhouse just over the ridge.
Hole 10 – Waste
The ideal drive here is a slight left to right shot, but be careful not to over do it, as a waste area protects the inside of the dogleg, whilst the narrow green is protected by a large Pine tree.
Hole 11 – The Long
As the name suggests, this is a very long hole and a true par 5 even for the big hitters! Try to shape your drive to turn the right and around corner. This will set up the best position from which to plan the rest of the hole. With your second shot steer clear of the lake down the right and with you approach, be careful to avoid the deep hollows and the mound which protect the right half of green. You will have to work hard for par here!
Hole 12 – The Dip
Depending on the wind direction, your shot across ‘the dip’ could play quite short or very long. Be sure of your club selection and play for the centre of the green.
Hole 13 – Deception
Play down the left side of the fairway in order to open up the green. Too far right and the fairway bunkers come more into play and provide the deception. Check your yardages!
Hole 14 – The swing
You must swing your tee shot from left to right on this long par 3 which plays downhill towards the lake. Anything shot of the putting surface will feed towards the waste areas. Carry too long and surely you’ll be in the lake !
Hole 15 – The Glen
The Glen appears to be wide open and presents the opportunity to open the shoulders for a long drive. However, a carry over a waste area, deep bunkers, an undulating fairway and a narrow green make this a more difficult hole than first perceived.
Hole 16 – Pond
This is an average length but narrow par 5 hole, that requires you must shape your drive from right to left. Should you avoid the 3 fairway bunkers, and then going for the green in 2 shots is a real possibility; however the green is protected by deep bunkers, a small pond on the left and a large lake to the rear.
Hole 17 – Front to back
This par 4 may be short in length but will present a tough test of ability. You must find the fairway off the tee before playing your approach into this elevated and very narrow green which slopes from the front to the back.
Hole 18 – Mountain peak
Drive long and straight towards the mountain peak on this the longest of the par 4 holes. You will need to shape your approach shot from left to right around the Pine tree in the centre of the fairway and make sure you take enough club in order to find the putting surface.
Hole 19 – The Black Hill
From the shadow of the clubhouse, guide your drive onto the higher ground down the right side of the fairway. This will present you with the best line of approach into the green situated on the top of the hill. A drive down the left and you will leave yourself with a tricky blind pitch over a deep greenside bunker.
Hole 20 – Eucalyptus
After an easy start, Eucalyptus presents a much steemer test. From the elevated tee position, you are required to turn your ball from right to left around the corner. From the fairway, you must play a controlled approach shot into the green which is set on the slope of the ridge and protected by the lake on the right and a pot bunker on the left.
Hole 21 – The Pots
This is a short par 3 hole with a heavily contoured and well-protected green. Four very deep pot bunkers guard the front with a fifth bunker to rear. Be sure to find the putting surface or you could be in the sand for a very long time.
Hole 22 – 3 Sisters
Guide your tee shot past the tall pines and the fairway bunkers to set up a mid-iron approach into the green. Check your yardages and be careful to avoid the three sisters who are waiting to catch any misplaced approach shot.
Hole 23 – Split
The fairway for this par 5 sweeps from the left to the right then left again to the green and is split by a belt of dense natural vegetation. Place your drive between the two tall pine trees that frame either side of the fairway. Carry the natural vegetation and aim to land shy of the line of sight bunkers to leave you with a short pitch into the green.
Hole 24 – Aquarius
The only required carry over water on the entire course. Either play to the right of the two pine trees onto the safer high side of the fairway, or take the more difficult line to the left of these trees. Naturally, the more difficult line will be rewarded with a much easier approach into this green. Whichever route you take, be sure not to go long with your approach shot, otherwise you will end up wet!
Hole 25 – Step
From within the chute of trees, try to shape your tee shot from right to left into the green. There is a steep step in the putting surface so ensure that you find the correct level, otherwise a three putt or more may be on the card.
Hole 26 - A tight squeeze
As the name suggests, it is a tight squeeze through the trees to find this fairway. Try to place your drive as close as possible to the two fairway bunkers, as this will provide you with the best view of the rest of the hole.With the narrow fairway, it may be prudent to play for this green in regulation and place your approach shot shy of the two greenside bunkers that protect the green.
Hole 27 –Lakes
Keeping your drive down the centre of this final fairway is essential here. However, with the cross winds that sweep across these lakes, this may not be easy thing to do. The best line of approach into this green is indicated by the old gnarly pine that sits on the slope. Club selection is important again, as you need enough club to carry over the corner of the lake. Come up short and you will have a wet end to you around.

Wonderful week pampered. for the 2nd year in a row in this hotel we have celebrated christmas and new year. Everything is good. operation is super, nice and helpful staff.
Pool (indoor given the time of year) is top and the wellness area. Food is made fresh enough, a different theme done every day . Actually no comments. top.
bAmazing hotel and facilities. There is always staff nearby if there is ever a problem or a question. Extremely clean and tidy.
The staff were extremely helpful when my daughter hurt herself. Nothing is too much trouble. Excellent
food - spoilt for choice. lots of variety in the main buffet restaurant. Ate at 2 of a la cartes, at a cost of 10 euros each. A bit miffed at having to pay extra ....but was well worth it. Rooms amazing, loved the walk in shower and Dove accessories. Everything you could possibly need.
Staff very helpful and (most)very friendly. Everything everywhere very clean and well mainned. I generally like to visit different resorts and don't return to same place, however I am seriously considering returning to the Cornelia Diamond again this year.
We were 4 adults on the golf stay in october 2015. It is the best hotel we have been on and we have been many beautiful places! there was absolutely nothing to put a finger on. We had several special requests during the week, they solved it all! the food is a chapter all to himself and i can not describe. Usually i get tired of buffet food within one week.
Where did i simply not the buffet through the week we were there! i have never experienced anything better and we could constantly see and feel how the staff did everything to food had to be perfect - and it was!
We have spent a week at Cornelia Diamond and it was by far one of the best all inclusive resorts we've ever been to. The food is really diverse and plenty, lots of children activities, polite staff, huge rooms, nice setting of the surrounding area.
In short, we are looking forward to re-visit this excellent hotel.
KLEK, STANISLAW TADEUSZ – (STANISLAW1972)
This huge hotel is a great place for vacations provided that you can afford it. If you can, it is worth it. A lot of swimming pools, many of them connected allowing nice and long swimming, a long and wide beach, nice sea, a lot restaurants indoors and outdoors, bars (all inclusive!), huge variety of meals, every night there is a show - enough to say: worth going!
Room Tip: Room with the direct access to the swimming pool is the best
DOBSON, DAVID FREDERIC – (DAVE E)
“Fantastic Hotel & Staff”
I don't often leave reviews but thought i needed to for the cornelia diamond. We travelled as a group of 3 couples, the boys played golf, the ladies used the spa and chilled out. the hotel and staff were amazing, they could not do enough for you.
The food in the diamond restaurant was outstanding but the specialty restaurants were out of this world. We used the asian, the steakhouse and the turkish restaurants and i would highly recommend. I will now judge all other hotels by this one, thanks to the hotel staff for a great holiday, we will be back.
