I have always wanted to play Royal Links. The idea of a links style course in the middle of Las Vegas always interested me, even further, a replication of Open rotation courses was even more. My son and I had the chance to play on June 20th and a great GN tee time helped further the cause. We arrived and were promptly met by Harvey at the bag drop. Harvey was the man. It was about 116 degrees at the time but we are pretty die-hard golfers so we were very appreciative of Harvey’s attention to us. I mean he really didn’t have to be there as we surveyed the parking lot and observed maybe a total of 10 vehicles (including ours). Got to the pro shop and the staff were incredibly friendly. Once again, we were the only 2 teeing off at 1 PM the next golfer, about 3 PM (which was a single). We got off the first tee promptly at 1 PM. Obviously the course was wide open, so I can’t speak intelligently to any wait time incurred by slow play. I will have to play it again during a peak time to provide a review of that aspect. The course was beautifully maintained. Great lies in the fairways, fluffy sand in the bunkers (108 of them!). The course was challenging but fair. All skill level golfers will be challenged. The “road hole” was amazing, as well as “postage stamp” (my 2 favorite holes). Overall a great experience at a great course.

Course was in very good shape. Greens were hard, fast and difficult to putt. Enjoyable round of golf. Be aware of hidden fairway bunkers. Perfect drive on 9 to find the ball in a pot bunker, dead against the wall of the bunker. Get a course book!

Im from the east coast in LI NY. Was on vacation in the Vegas area. Saw Royal Links Golf Club was rated very high. Decided to play this course with my wife. The greens are very different speeds on each hole. Which I don't care for. Course is wide open and no water holes. Wish I had more time to play more rounds in Vegas. Play early because it's gets mid day.

I don't have much to say. It's a decent little course for $50. A waste of money for any more. Folks were pretty friendly. The only frustration I had was that they let a fivesome (plus a teemate) out in front of us with a caddie. You would think that the Caddie would maintain pace. They teed off 30 minutes before us and we caught them on the 4th hole. After sitting with them on the Teebox on back to back holes with nobody in front of them I figured we would get the invite to play through, but we did not, so we asked them if we could skip a hole and jump in front of them. I am used to golfers lacking ediquite, but I would have expected more since they had a caddie from the course.

Maybe I was expecting more, because I've been to Scotland to play golf. It's a neat concept if you have never been. Bring your laser or GPS because it's not on your cart. Also if you think you in a bunker bring the rake from the cart, it will save you a bunch of steps. I played it early in the afternoon and I would say there was maybe 20 groups out in total. I played as a single and was done in 3 hours because groups let me by.

This course was in excellent condition, fairways and greens were perfect . I was in Vegas for a conference and so glad I was able to get away and play a round. There are serious bunkers strategically placed and I promise will add at least 2 strokes per hole. If I had one complaint was the bunkers were more dirt then sand which was surprising since the course is in the desert.

Very pleased with the coarse and staff. Liked the castle type clubhouse to the little stories on each hole. The call ahead for food at #9 in an English style phone booth was a nice touch. Course is not that long but can see how on windy days it would add to the difficulty. Enjoyed it very much. Surprised it was not busier as the weather was great.

It was a friendly club and the day we were there it wasn't crowded. I had higher expectations as a replica of Scotland Courses. Seemed very ordinary. However. It was in good shape. And we enjoyed our play. Very very windy that day so may be more like Scotland! We like to try different courses when we visit Vegas

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!
