Black Diamond in Lecanto Florida represents not only one of the most unique developments, but also one of the most exclusive communities in Citrus County Florida.

Visionary developer Stan Olsen, has created what many refer to as the finest golf community in the state of Florida, due largely to the world famous Black Diamond Quarry Golf Course.

Never one to turn down a challenge, Stan Olsen set out to create the best golf course possible from an abandoned limestone quarry, then add a premier golf community around it, and he succeeded. At Black Diamond the homes do not intrude on the golf course, instead a Black Diamond home melts into the scenery and landscaping as if it belongs there. Surrounded by large ancient oak trees and verdant pine forests each Black Diamond home has more privacy than most communities.
Set only minutes from the Gulf Coast, and with a bounty of sunshine, the area is well suited for active Florida living and golf year round. The gamble was a success, Black Diamond offers what many were searching for, an escape from the hustle and bustle of city life, but still offering quick access to the metropolitan areas of Tampa, Orlando, Gainesville and Ocala Florida. Opened in 1987 the Black Diamond community was immediately put on the map due to the unique Quarry Golf Course.

There are three outstanding golf courses at Black Diamond. The Quarry Course will leave the most seasoned golfer awe struck. Repeatedly rated among the world’s best golf courses, the Quarry Course plays right up to the edge of the limestone quarry and then dives straight down into the abyss with dramatic views of the 80 foot cliffs as you play the green at the bottom of the quarry.

"Black Diamond's Quarry holes are the five best consecutive holes of golf in the world." says Dan Jenkins, of Golf Digest. All credited to famous golf course architect Tom Fazio.

The Ranch golf course at Black Diamond, also an 18-hole golf course, offers rolling hills, misty meadows, abundant oaks and pine trees as well as two lakes and plenty of sand traps. In addition to these two fine golf courses the newly completed Highlands golf course at Black Diamond rests atop a hillside at the highest elevation in Black Diamond. The 9-hole Highlands golf course offers lush fairways and breathtaking twenty five mile views on a clear day.
