310 USA Divot Tool Ball Marker Review

Every once in awhile you run across a company doing fantastic work in the golf space and you have to get all of their stuff immediately.

That is what happened to me when I ran across 310.USA on Instagram. What they make just isn't any golf divot tool or golf ball marker but some of the best iterations of those things.

Using Damascus steel, 310 takes their time forging these fantastic items and I got to use them recently on a round in SoCal.

The divot tool was super solid and when I used it on greens the steel made it super easy to repair ballmarks and was so well balanced that it is now my GO TO divot tool.

The ball marker has a bunch of heft to it so I always knew when it was in my pocket and everyone knew whose putt was mine with this fantastic ballmarker and its topographic lines.

310 also sent me a killer key chain piece of metal which I love. Basically I love everything 310 does and you will too if you order their stuff.

Diamond Bar Golf Review

Diamond Bar golf course is not a well rated course. Multiple holes are bordered by the freeway. The course took 5 hours and 45 minutes to play. I took that all in stride and decided to play it anyway.

What I found was a course that had some really interesting holes. Say the 9th hole for example. A completely uphill par 3 to a green that seems like you are trying to hit to the top of a volcano.

The greens can be absolutely perplexing with their slopes and the pin positions were devious to say the least.

Every once in awhile you tuned out the constant freeway noise and could focus on the majestic mountains surrounding the course.

These elements are great but the sum of the parts are too lacking. Parallel holes, the constant drone of the freeways, the terrible course management allowing for almost 6 hour rounds. Diamond Bar suffers from too many defects to be recommended to a golfer. That being said, there are some elements that would be great cornerstones in case the course was ever renovated.
