I’ve never played a links style course. It was different but very fun

I just wish they had a distance between 5800 & 6600. Maybe a blended set up

Slow Pace of Play

Extremely slow pace of play caused by course allowing 5-somes. Too bad. I've played 11 of the original holes they copied and none of those courses allow 5-somes under any conditions. Marshall was very rude in addressing the problem. One and done, I will not return.

Nice course but not overseeded, painted

Most courses in the west are overseeded with winter rye to make them playable in the winter as the Bermuda goes dormant. Not royal links. It’s painted fairways. Not worth $125 a round.

Superb

Loved this course. Awesome and fun layout. Greens are beautifully designed. Such that a 2-footer above the hole will end up 6 feet past if you’re not careful. Lots of break out here.

Gem in the desert.

First time playing this course and wonder why it took so long. The course is great along with information on each tee about the hole. Also, great people from starter, inside people and our waitress. Keep up the great work because I will be back.

Fun Course in Great Condition

This was my first time playing Royal Links golf club. I will definitely be back to play again.

You start out by people greeting you at the bag drop and offer to valet park your car for you.
The range is nice with real grass to hit off vs. mats like at many courses in the area.

Course was a joy to play. Greens were a little slow for what I am used to, but very puttable. Pace of play was excellent the entire round. At the tee box, there is a description of a noteable golfer and the course from which the hole was replicated, but nothing at all about the hole itself. I would much rather learn a little about the hole I was playing rather than a notable golfer who won at the course from which the hole was taken and replicated. Provide more information about the hole and some of the things which make the hole famous and notorious.

Overall, great course in great condition. It was fun to see a calm, coyote walking around the course as well as other wildlife. The course has over 150 pot bunkers which add to the challenge of the course. Lots of fun and challenging.

A replica golf course

Consists of replicas of famous holes in the UK. Links-style, with many bunkers. Most teeboxes have a plaque describing significant events at that hole (but nothing on the layout of the hole itself). Unfortunately, the surrounding area is very reminiscent of suburban America! Conditions very good; greens fast. Clubhouse looks like a castle. Staff very friendly and helpful. Recommended.

Challenging Golf

Not for the casual golfer but if you like to be challenged and think your way around a course this place is for you. I had to play shots I hadn’t had to play all year. And there’s USB chargers on the golf carts. Check it out.

Golf is a good walk spoiled...by africanized honeybees

We chose to play Royal Links based upon recommendations from a local club pro. The facility itself is fantastic, a delightful clubhouse/ pro shop, ample practice area and no residences lining the holes. The course is challenging and well-maintained and the pace of play was terrific. A great value for $133,00. Unfortunately, on the 9th hole fairway I was attacked by a swarm of "killer" bees and stung 12-15 times. While running from the swarm I also fractured my right ankle. It was a terrifying experience. Upon entering the clubhouse a few employees were alerted to this event and mentioned, "...oh yeah, the bees on 9." Two things happened that were unacceptable indeed. First, the course staff knew that the bees were problematic and did not alert customers. What if I had been allergic? Second, after learning of the event not one employee asked me if I was ok or if I needed assistance. What happened to common courtesy? Is this a Vegas thing?

Since this post, the GM reached out to me directly and resolved the situation. I believe what he had to say and appreciate his willingness to listen. These types of circumstances will always occur, it is the response that defines character.
