A sad decline Of a great course

the course was in very poor condition and at times you had to move your ball on the green in order to put because the greens were so terrible.Inconsistent greens in terms of speed was maddening. The cups Were smaller because the grass over grew the edges. Some of the tees were in terrible condition. This course used to be fabulous but Poor maintenance is obvious.The course does not drain well and some of the fairways were wet and spongy and it seems that the lack of maintenance includes no effort to remedy this problem. I will not play this course again until I see better reviews

Nice!

Course has some grass trouble over July and August but has recovered nicely. Greens were really nice. Course is in great shape. Staff was very friendly. Pace of play was 3.5 hours for a foursome. Great time!

Poor condition

I took my son here for the very first time. We were both very disappointed with the conditions of the greens and fairways. I remember this course being one of the better courses to play in the area. Unfortunately, we will not be back anytime soon even though we received a certificate to play it again with cart fee.

Rough Shape

Once a very nice course, it was in extremely poor shape from fairway to greens. Had a good price through Golfnow but certainly can not recommend this course in its current condition.

Not sure it can get much worse

Have played this course once a year forever used to be a gem. Has gotten progressively worse over the last 3 or 4 years. Have had a couple rainy years but play numerous courses in the county and nothing has deteriorated to this level. Don’t waste your money. Will take years to make playable again.

Course Damaged

Although the layout is fine, the condition is very poor: greens, tee boxes, and fairways all need help. All thre show signs of significant damage.

Very serious damage in fareways and greens, one of the poorest conditions I have played in in recent memory, sadly.

Could be a nice course

This place could be awesome, for the past 10+ years the greens have been terrible. And the whole place is coming down around it, it’s a shame this could be an awesome facility!

Terrible Condition

I had golfed at this course a few times before. The last time was about 2 years ago. Whoever is in charge of ground keeping has let this course go down the tube. Tee boxes that look like a nice courses rough, patches of dirt and sand on the greens. 6'x6' patches of dirt/mud/crab grass on the fairways. They have a nice facility and solid layout, but the conditions are just awful.

Poor greens

Course was in ruff shape. A ton of ball marks on the greens. Some of the greens were dead. Mother Nature hasn’t been nice to them. Its a solid lay out.

Not worth it this year...

I could blame the rain and wet conditions that caused the course to be a mess, but as an organization your expertise is in golf course maintenance. Couple that with Lebanon CC not being anywhere near as in rough a shape, this was certainly a HUGE disappointment.

I took two foursomes down there and frankly was embarrassed that I picked this course to play this week.

Greens are burnt, most fairways are a mess, the tee boxes are like hitting out of the rough and no where near as groomed as they should be. At $45 a person you expert more for the price of admission.

Royal has been a great course in years past. Sadly, those years are long gone! I won’t be back this year again after this weekends round. I was that disappointed.

Great course

It was in good condition as of July 1, 2019. A little work being done here and there, improvements being made, I presume. A few low areas that were a little wet, but nothing that affected our play. Will go again.
