"Poor pace of play"

Although the course was nice, the extreme amount of players on the course at one time was disgraceful. Zero rangers dictated the pace of play and that resulted in massive bunch up at the tee boxes. It took one hour to get through two holes. One group just jetted out in front on us as a twosome in between two groups of four and slowed everything down. What's worse is the staff pretty much did nothing to prevent the slow down.

First round since November (I live in MI) and couldn't have picked more fair course to start out our week long golf trip.

Wide open fairways and greens that were in tremendous shape. Pace of play was horrible, but it was a beautiful afternoon and with the fairness and value of this course, can see why!

Wow I could not be more satisfied of my round of golf here. Got a great deal here on GolfNow ($30)! Course was in great shape, color red 9 holes was fun and tight. Great friendly staff. The only bad part was the fact that we had to wait about 20min past our tee time to start off, but who cares, the weather was perfect and I got paired with a great group of people to kill the time. The pace of play was great after we got started. 10/10 must play this course if you're in the Orlando area. You will NOT be disappointed.

It was a perfect beautiful Day for golf. Only trouble was that the course booked to many players and our tee time was over 45 min. delay. Very frustrating! Has to wait extremely long on each hole for the first 9 holes.

The second nine opened up a little and the pace of play was better. I like the layout and the course was in good shape but will not play again because of the time delay!

Overall conditions from tee to green were pretty good. We played the white course and blue courses. Plenty of challenges with fairway traps and water.

You are rewarded with good course management and with links-style greens made it nice for putting up from the fringe areas. Sand in the traps was a little hard and not very deep so your club tended to skip off sometimes causing an occasional skull shot around the greens.

Overall great experience, staff could have been a little friendlier but other than that great course for a great value.

My wife and I discovered this course 10 years ago because of their marketing slogan (at that time) "Don't let the price fool you". Fast forward to the present, we have played a lot of courses in the area. Royal St. Cloud is still the best value for the money. The course is always full, but we have never experienced a slow round of golf. They do a great job getting everyone out. We've had some very enjoyable rounds being paired up with other folks every time we have played. Love all of the "reminders" at every tee box to fix ball marks and divots....very creative.

Our 4 guy golf week in winter group from the frozen north and we've been checking out local courses for the past 8 yrs.

This is the 5th time we've played at Royal St Cloud and each outing has been a pleasure. It's become our "go to" place to play in Orlando area.

Can't beat the price and value for our golf dollar.

Had a 9am tee time. They were actually running ahead. Paired with a couple locals that were very helpful. Fairways in decent shape. Greens a tad slow but putted true. Got around in just over 4 hours without feeling rushed. At $40 best value around by far.
