A “Good” course

The way the reviews about this course swing from Excellent to total garbage makes me laugh. First know that I am a tough critic of golf courses and I play multiple courses a couple of times a week.
The greens here are a very solid “good”. I would say that they are the best part of the course and I think the most important. I don’t mind hitting from a thin fairway but a garbage green is no fun at all. With that said the fairways are average. I would say inconsistent at worst. Some bad spots here and there but nothing horrible. The Tee boxes were the worse part of the course. It doesn’t effect me game to tee off from a “shaggy” and unkept tee box but from a pure esthetic point of view I would say they need lots of work. As far as the traps are concern we had gotten rain the night before so they were wet and un raked but what can you do. They were void of grass or weeds. Overall at $37 “ish I would say the course is worth a visit but if I can get on Stonecreek for the same price and that course is much better all around then I would go there. I’m a fan of Royal Oaks and will be going back. BTW, staff is friendly enough but NO cart girl.

A well kept course.

From the tee boxes to the greens, this course plays well and is a joy to play. It presents a challenge for the average golfer and rewards good shots.

Hot Golf

Our round was suppose to start at 11 am, but due to the heat and lack of players we got out at 10:15 am. The course was in very good condition and the greens were in great shape. The course had cold water every few holes and you have to hydrate in these conditions. All in all a great hot golf day.

Slow round rude ranger

Course of good and the lady in the pro shop was nice... That's where the good part ends. We played behind a fivesome and called the pro shop twice for slow play both times they said a Marshall was coming out. The third time he finally did he said they're playing in the allowed time... You're just playing faster. We asked him why they couldn't let us go and again he said they are playing at the pace of play. It's ettiquitte to let others go if you're playing five it's also ettiquitte for a ranger to keep pace and sissy players. Ranger was rude and even went so far as to say and I quote if you don't like it go play somewhere else.. Marion county has many other courses to choose from that are in better shape and a better value. It is clear that this is one of those snooty places that doesn't want outside play. I will be calling the pro shop to complain. AVOID AVOID AVOID this course

Good for afternoon play. A lot of residents play in morning. Always in good shape and pace of play is great as long as you tee off after 12.

Cow Pasture!

Neither Golf Now nor The Oaks mentioned anything about major airiation of the fairways and I mean major!!! There was equipment noise and workers all over the course and 2" spike holes with clods of dirt everywhere! I actually slipped and and fell on the fairway on an approach shot!
NO MORE PAY IN ADVANCE HOT DEALS FOR ME!

Nice conditions

They have kept this course in nice condition through the transition back to the summer grasses. A few tee boxes need grass. But the rest was good. They had just punched the fairways but it was still very enjoyable. . .

Poor maintenance of greens and tees.

The course design and layout was fine, with lovely old trees framing the holes. However, the greens and tees were in poor shape. Even the practice green was damaged. I would not rush back to play unless the greens were in better repair.
