Best course in central Florida
Our twosome played in less than 3 hours with very little waiting. The course is in excellent condition better than any other course in the area. Everything was prepared for the impact if the virus. Felt safe and all staff were very friendly. Great time. Highly recommend
With a big front pushing through the area you can expect winds to be gusty, and boy were they. Probably a steady 15 mph to gusts of 25 mph. Made for a day of club choices not usually needed.
While the fairways were in great shape the greens had been verti cut and not up to their usual shape. Given a few days all will be as normal. Great course to play.
Should not have allowed players
Being a golf now vip for several years, I become upset when I book tee times to find the course is being worked on when I start to play. It is important for the course to let GN know what conditions are going to be taking place the day of play. This was not a pleasing day for us to be playing at Royal Oaks. First problem was the greens were sanded and they were putting water to them . The ball picked the sand up and putting was not a pleasure. Next thing that was a problem was the fact they were using powerful spray to treat the greens and aprons to kill insects on the course. We were rushed to stay ahead of the contarted equipment that was injecting the surface. Why did they even have a tee time if they knew this was going be scheduled ? Plus the workers who were pulling cups as soon as we walked off the greens would drive up and talk while we were putting. Poor management I would say. Normally I enjoy this course but today we should have not played. It was a waste of time and money.
I played this course several years ago and virtually placed it on the back- burner.
It was a pleasant and inspiring occasion to witness an almost complete resurgence , a renaissance if you would of the course.
No longer was there the old standard Floridian club house but a new resurgent modern and energized clubhouse and staff. The check in was painless and the starter was upbeat and succinct in their briefing of the course and it’s condition.
We found the course in supreme shape. The fairways and the rough cut to exacting standards and the greens a little slow but perfect in the roll, give and mysterious in the read.
The woods and shade exemplary as was the ability to find the wayward ball. A distinction the few clubs seem to grasp. Shot shape and precise irons are paramount on this course.
A beautiful challenge to any level of game.
Hurrah Royal Oak
Great course will play again
Course is getting better all the time
My wife and I had a good day of golf at Royal Oaks.
Fairways are getting greener as spring arrives. Best shape since we've been here . Will certainly go back.
Nice track in a residential area 20 minutes outside of Ocala. While there were homes along the fairways, they were well set back. Greens were in excellent shape. Fairways and teeing areas were a bit scruffy hence the 4 star rating. Good variety of holes. Enjoyed our round. Excellent pace of play, in part due to early start and impact of Covid-19.
Sat morning round
Not sure what course others on here played. While the greens were reasonable, the rest of the course was trash. No grass in the fairways or tees. Spotty at best. Pace of play was also very slow. Wouldn’t play here again with other reasonable courses in the area.
Fun course in very nice shape. Great value and a good challenge for your game.
Great course. Maintained well. Greens very good. Overall great deal and fun course.
Good course, terrible Ranger
Course condition was good, greens were fast, the problem is and why I will not play their anytime soon again is because of Ranger.
When the ranger comes up to your group half way down the fairway on the 1st hole and is lecturing on pace of play with absolutely no one on the tee box, once again 1st hole, needless to say he has no clue, our round started at 10:45 and 10.52 and ended before 3:00.
Great course for the price
As a hot deal, this course is fantastic. Not your typical Florida public course. Has plenty of trees and sand, but little water. Good fairways and greens.
Friendly Place to Play
This was my first booking through golfnow, and it couldn't have gone better. The pro shop staff were great, even to the extent of helping to pair me up with a member couple, giving me some female company to tee off with.
The greens were fine, fairways a little patchy.
I thoroughly enjoyed my afternoon.
Good day of golf
I play here quite often. The greens are still in good shape but the fairways are spars. Many bare spots lead to dirt lies with no grass under the ball. Hopefully the transition from rye to burmuda will happen quickly to help alleviate the problem.
The course was in good winter condition as was the weather. Winds at 25 to 45 mph made for a golfing experience worth remembering. The best news was the temperature which was above 80 degrees.
