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.

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.

Nees work

Must have had some heavy rains. No ball washers. Greens & tea boxes need work. Love the layout but work required.

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.

Good value

The course was in pretty good shade considering all the rain lately. The pace of play was fast and the weather great.

Good day

Considering all the rain and low areas we appreciated the efforts being made by the course management to doing whatever they can to maintain and improve the course.
The fairways were great and the greens are very good.We will be back again and again

Conditions were terrible

It was really hard for me to tell where the fairway and the rough starts because the grass conditions were awful.

Really did not enjoy this course at all. Would not recomment even for $10.00.
