Mostly Great Condition - Terrible Pace
Pros: The condition of the course on the tee boxes, fairways, greens and the driving range were outstanding. The layout is interesting enough and provides a decent challenge for a mid-handicapper. The scenery is also very nice. Also, a very nice looking clubhouse as well.
Cons: The bunkers were not very good, most weren't raked, some had been completely abandoned, such as the long bunker that lines the picturesque green on the par 3, #12 hole - it looked like a war zone, it was very disappointing.
The biggest gripe is probably the pace of play. I play here on average of once a year. On a normal weekend my group plays as early as possible and typically finishes between 3-4 hrs. I've never finished in under 5 hours at this course. The course does not appear to provide rangers to encourage a good pace of play either.
Between the bunker conditions and pace of play it's a hard sell given the price of this course with so many other gems in the area at a better price.
Thank you for your feedback. We're constantly and consistently putting all of our efforts into making conditions great, so we appreciate you noting the Pros and we are definitely working to improve bunkers. We are disappointed to hear that pace wasn't to your standards - we didn't have any complaints over the weekend, and our starters were monitoring times per usual. We apologize if there was oversight on the part of our rangers and we will review your feedback. We hope you would consider giving us another shot in the future.
I have played twice this year and it has been sunny and windy both times. I love the layout and will keep coming back
Sorry we missed the chance to say THANK YOU back when your reviewed the course. But...THANK YOU! We appreciate the kind words and hope you've had another chance to join us this season :)
Excellent bet if in Coliumbus OH area
Played on a whim and enjoyed the course. Except for the power lines crossing the 1st and 10th tee shots (which killed one of my tee shots), definitely feel like you're out in the country. Course has good variety in design and was in good condition.
Thanks so much for the great review, RavensGolfer! We appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback and hope you'll visit us again when you're in the area!
Very nice course
very nice fairways and greens water comes into play on a lot of holes.
Thanks for taking the time to review our course, hope to see you again in 2016!
Typical winter conditions. Just good to get out and play in Feb!
Always nice to get in a winter round! Thanks for the review, hope to see you again this season!
December golf was amazing ! Staff was friendly & had a good sense of humor. Beer was a lil pricey, $18 for a 6 pack of Miller lite. Greens was a lil hard to play with all the sand but I guess being December I really can't complain. Would love to play again next year when it's warmer. Definitely would recommend everyone go play this course.
Thank you for the great recommendation! It's always great when you can get out in the winter and have an enjoyable round. Hope to see you soon!
This course is top notch. Will definitely play again. Well worth the money
Thank you for the fantastic review! Hope to see you again soon.
The past year has been very good to Royal American
Much improved course. Great greens! Bunkers are well maintained. The areas that needed attention are getting it. Staff was great and they have a nice selection of craft drafts. Cart paths need work, but no reason to not make the drive out. Well worth it.
Great place to play
Played here before & the course never disappoints. The greens are near perfect.
This was my first time playing Royal American, and it was pretty fun after it stopped raining and lightninging. I did have one of my worst rounds in a while here but if I didn't hit six balls in the water, it wouldn't have been that bad. Even after some rain the greens were still pretty fast. After the round I went to get something to eat, and it was 3.25 for a hot dog. I've never seen a hot dog that much overpriced. Anyway it still was pretty good. With everything I said the round was pretty fun and I hope to come back soon.
