Amazing facility. 18 holes of replicated Open Championship courses. Each tee box has a plague with the hole that was copied and a history bit. The bag drop guys and starter were extremely friendly and polite. Tees. Fairways and greens were in great shape. Stay out of bunkers as they are very deep and unfortunately being in a desert environment there is very little sand in them. Some bunkers were muddy, (especially the postage stamp hole, left side of green) this is only reason for 4 stars on course condition. Highly recommend playing!

Not worth the money even with a golf now hot deal. It's a $30 course at best. The greens were poor. Course was really dry. Play Spanish Trail, the Piutte courses or most any other course before you play this one.

Our foursome had a great round. It was a last minute booking on a busy Vegas Friday and tee times at the time we needed to go weren't readily available except here. So glad we came here. The course was fun! Loved the different holes and the staff were great too.

Great round of golf

Course was in fantastic shape

Lots of fun

Only one little complaint

The practice green was lighting fast but when we got to the greens they were very

Slow

Took a little getting used to but the course in general was great

Would recommend anyone looking to play in the Vegas areas play here

I'm probably a little too critical since I've played many of the Scottish courses that are represented on this course......similar but not the same. Greens weren't very good.

Really fun to play the course in such windy conditions, truly felt like a British Open. It was a really fun layout and wasn't far from the strip at all.

Only negatives were the pace of play (5 hrs 15 mins) and the conditions on some of the greens - would have expected better given the rack rate is over $200 for certain times of day.

This was my first time playing Royal Links and right from pulling up to the gates it was impressive. Excellent staff upon arrival helped with bags and car as well as quick directions around the clubhouse.

Clubhouse was very nice and had everything well laid out. Nice big putting green and driving range had multiple targets as well as good balls and tee's provided.

It was February so the course wasn't in perfect shape, but I could tell in the mid season it would be nice to return. Weather was nice and the pace was decent enough except for one or two holes, but who cares when on vacation if you wait 5 minutes.

I would go back again and play for sure.

I chose this course as my first selection while here in Vegas and it was inspired. From the minute I arrived the staff looked after my everywish - food, beer all really top value. The course was really well prepared and latex out. I particularly liked the description of each hole laid out on each tee.

I would recommend this for everyone who visits Vegas. I will definitely ba back.

Despite positive reviews, I was a little skeptical of a Scottish "replica" course in the Vegas desert. However Royal Links is anything but gimmicky. Course conditions are terrific, layout is challenging yet fun, staff is incredibly friendly, and the pace of play was excellent (just over 4 hours on a Sunday afternoon...and saw the marshal at least 3 times). Can't say enough good things about Royal Links...really enjoyed the round and will definitely be back!

Course had a great variation in holes. If the OPEN greens are the same as these then I have respect for anyone who can win there. Greens were in great shape for the winter months, same with the fairways. When I played very few people out on the course so play was great.
