Staff was friendly. Burger after front nine was great. Greens were super fast, held pretty well, smooth, but green design and some of the pin placements made it like miniature golf. Very disappointing. I'm a scratch and played from the 6600 yard tees. Wasn't overly difficult except for the silly greens and poor hole locations. For this reason alone, I wouldn't recommend the course.The on course coyote made you pay attention. One more thing, the size of the "postage stamp" green was disappointing. Could land a plane on it.

Very nice! Great conditions and each hole was totally different. However... many bunkers are hidden from sight and without knowing where they are, shots that look great can end up being miserable. Also, the bunkers are supposedly exact replicas, so depending on which British Open hole they are modeled after the sand- no, make that dirt- can be anything from nicely playable to "forget about advancing the ball and just go out backwards". A couple of greens were also completely hidden from sight, making for even more anxiety.

But I truly liked it... it was a unique course opposed to the typical Las Vegas offerings and really very interesting. I've now played 3 "British Open tribute" courses (Texas & Florida before) and this was the best of them, but it was hair-pulling to hit a nice shot right over a bunker to the green only to find out you ended up in a deep pothole that was hidden from view that will cost you, or nail your drive over a hill only to end up in yet another hidden bunker.

Everyone in our group had trouble putting, as the greens can be diabolical in disguising breaks and speed, but you may be a better green reader.

Anyway, don't take this as a negative review, it was truly an enjoyable day of golf for us all. I'm 65 years old, a 9-hdcp, playing from the whites and I shot 82 with an 8 on one hole, so the course was very playable. Just be sure to buy a yardage book and steer clear of those hidden hazards!

I've never been to Scotland and may never get there, but we thoroughly enjoyed Royal Links as a substitute. We experienced the unique bumps and rolls of a links course, hidden bunkers, bad breaks, and surprisingly quick greens. Course was in good shape, not immaculate but didn't expect it to be. Had a great time playing famous holes like the postage stamp and road hole. Staff was ultra friendly and got us from our car to the tee in 10 minutes as we arrived right at our tee time. Finished last two holes at dark as pace of play is going to be a little slow with so much trouble to get into especially if you haven't played there before. Not a course I would play weekly, but next time we come to Vegas, we will definitely be back at Royal Links.

Royal Links was a fun course to play if you have never played it before. As a golf lover, I enjoyed the history surrounding this course as it was explained to me on tee boxes and in the yardage book. Rolling hills everywhere, and bunkers everywhere. The greens were difficult We played on a very windy day and that made it tough. I don't know if the course is worth $100+ which is what it usually costs, but if you're like me and will probably never play a British Open Course, it's nice to see what some of the best holes look and play like.

This course is very overrated for the price. I played in Nov 12 as a single couldn't even get done in 4 hours. No GPS in cart course was really burned out and the layout was very gimmicky. Much better course for the money is Bears Best wonderfully maintained course and cheaper. I'd pass on Royal Links.

many guests complaining on pace of play and treating the staff with disrespect and anger I must say the staff at Royal Links definitely knows how to handle their guests. Personally I think people have too much entitlement these days and use complaining as a way to get things free. Yet Royal Ljnks staff treated everyone like royalty even after they were cussed out. The pace was slow but when things aren’t perfect you make the best out of it. I made a business deal with a player on the group behind me. Had it not been slow and we had not talked the deal would have never happened. Take the good with the bad people. The staff definitely did all they could I saw the marshal all day. Good job Royal Links and keep it up! I will be back!!!

Wanted to play to at least to the road hole number 10. It took three hours and 15 minutes to get to number 10. There were three foursomes of buddies in front of us with another threesome in between. We Tee'd off at 1:30; would not have finished by dark. The Marshall came around once and said " he had to move them up two holes" after the fifth? Really? He in essence shut down the course. The course was average except for the postage stamp hole and the road hole.Very disappointing day. Way over priced. Clubhouse was spectacular however.
