I had played this course a couple times five plus years ago and found the condition to be just okay. This time the fairways and greens were PERFECT.. The fairways were so good i felt like I could not miss an a shot.

The only negative was the bunkers which had very little sand. However the sand/dirt that was there was loosened up enough to make them marginally playable. The rest of the course was so perfect I still gave it 5 stars despite the bunkers.

I’m an index of 12. Played the tips had fun. Some par 4s really tough. Some where you can score. Fairways in great shape. Greens were slow cause of rain the day before. If you don’t find the fairway or rough...it’s a wasteland. I would play it again. Staff very approachable. Not the greatest course in Vegas but a real fun track. Got lost a couple times without the yardage book cause a few fairways are shared. Look forward to playing again

Course is an "great shape"! Green's were very smooth, fairways are clean, pace of play was perfect. The only reason, I didn't give it a 5 star, cause I heard, from my other players, that the bunkers hardly had dirt or sand in them, or it was hardpack? I didn't know, cause I avoided all 103 bunkers! :-) Shot my lowest round ever at 74 (gross)!!

For price, u can beat, great service, range balls & water provided. But note, these are small bottles so bring your own! No water on course or I didn't c a cart girl either?

You are get a sense u playing at the British open, except for the heat!

Course is in great shape,every hole a different challenge. Greens were perfect, could not have asked for more.

If you are thinking of giving this course a try STOP THINKING AND JUST DO IT.!!!

The only problem you will have is that you will have to judge all the other courses you play by this standard!!!!

Thr last time we golfed here was in the winter. The fairways were dry and with few green grass. We came back this summer and the course is in great shape. Fairways, greens and bunkers were all well maintained. Unlike other public courses in Vegas this one is a little pricey but you will enjoy the sparingly spaced out golfers.

Was a good layout and challenge from the tips at 7100

Some of the greens rolled strange. Some where slow while others the ball rolled off with a Tap.

Nice grass practice area included. Along with water on the carts. Clubhouse was near. Inside and out was a Scottish castle.

The course was in great condition. It was pretty hot out here so the greens were not as soft as in the past. They were very slick but fun. The course is amazing and has some great holes. The only thing I was not okay with, and this is not to diminish the great rating and conditions of course. The bunkers are already challenging because you are 5-6 feet deep in a bunker. But here was grass in the bunker sides. I think they should be cleaned up. Again that is my opinion but game will get challenging if you land in one. Overall course is amazing and Rafferty was great.

Reading about Royal Links before deciding to play the course I noticed comments about it having quite a few holes that would remind you of the courses in the British Open rotation. Specifically mentioned were two features of St. Andrews. The Road Hole and a very large bunker named after the residence of the devil. (Can't use the exact word since this review site censors that word as profanity)

#10 at Royal Links was an excellent portrayal of the Road Hole at St. Andrews that brought back fond memories of our round there in 2003. However, I never saw the Hades Bunker during our play at Royal Links and had to ask the Pro Shop after the round where it was. Very Disappointing - I got in the Hades Bunker in 2003 and after playing out of that monster bunker had to have a playing partner help me get out over the 4 1/2 foot sod walls.

After playing 6 named courses in 2003 we expected many other memories but the other holes referenced by signs on the tee boxes at Royal Links were non-starters.

Play the course because it is a good value and is in very good condition. Don't play it hoping for it to give you insight into playing the Open Championship holes.

What a great experience. We had a group of 28 golfers with n early 6:00 AM tee time. The staff was great, providing yardage books and taking care of preliminary details. The course was in great shape!! We had read some of the earlier responses of difficulties but the course was in excellent condition. Both the fairways and greens were excellent. The traps were tough but after all. this was a British open replica course and it was represented well. It is probably a course you need to play more than once to understand that placement is more important then distance. Our group all loved the course ; in fact 4 of us played an extra 18 at great rate. The staff in Stymies pub also did a great job. Our group is looking forward to returning to your great course again.

Great Links course! Thankfully it was not windy as a windy Scottish Links course with these Pot Bunkers would be like playing the actual British Open courses! Had a blast and was paired up with some great people.

Play was fast mid-week, but no refreshment service and Alcohol was suspended until May2018.

Strange Cart damage deposit requirement - must be some history here....

The course is burnt up, a lot more yellow than green. The pictures online don’t represent The actual conditions. Worst thing about it was no alcohol on the course due to a liquor license issue, and their failure to mention that until we were all paid and checked in.

Course condition is awful and way over priced for what you get. I have played over 20 courses in the Vegas area and this one would be at the bottom of my list. The nicest thing about it is the clubhouse... I hope the new ownership can get things together because this was a terrible experience. I will note that the staff we interacted with was top notch.
