El Diablo is located in Citrus Springs, an hour north and west of Orlando, 90-minutes north of Tampa, FL and 20-minutes west of Ocala, FL, kind of out in the middle of undeveloped north central Florida. It's just golf here, no development, with a good amount of elevation changes, large, mature trees, not palms tree, lined fairways, both unusual for Florida area courses. The greens are on the small side and roll at a good speed with a little undulation. The layout features a series of unique holes, each presenting its own challenge, in a secluded setting. The course was designed by Jim Fazio and opened in 1988, and was laid out on the existing land without a lot of earth moving. It measures 7,045 yards and 75.3/147 rating and slope from the back tees, with four shorter tees. The course is heavily bunkered throughout the fairway landing areas and around the greens.
