Beautiful course

I played here onca rainy day when most golfers cancelled the round. I didn't mind getting a little wet and so had the place to myself. It was a challenging course and probably a bit behind my current skill level since I'm a complete newbie. It was still a ton of fun and I got good practice shooting out of bunkers. Also, shout-out to a gentleman named Robert who was especially helpful and nice. His service made me want to go back.

Above average

Course was in decent shape considering what is going on these days. Greens were hard due to lack of rain and wind so hard to hold greens. But they rolled ok. Would play again.

One of my favorite courses

The greens were not up to their usual standards and some of the rough and fescue has been cut down to make it easier to play but overall the course is worth the price

Nice track

I enjoy playing Roycebrook it’s a classic layout and fair. The bunkers could use some work but the greens and fairways are good

Tough course on a cold and windy day.

Tee’d off at 9am. It was windy and temps around 23. Green were rock hard. Had to land approach shots short for the bounce. Fairways and tee boxes were decent. No beverage cart or water on course. I guess in the cold it gets overlooked. I will play it again because I would like to learn my lines off of the tees. This course will be fun when it warms up. Staff is always friendly and helpful.

Royce brook

I have been wanting to play this course for quite some time, I got a fantastic rate on golf now, well worth the price, I will be back many more times, course is very challenging, greens were a little bit on the slow side for my taste, but rolled very true, you should use every club in your bag, nice elevation changes, this was the east course , if you get a chance go play this course .

I love Royce Brook

Excellent course for challenging but rewarding holes. If you hit to the right place you are rewarded. Miss even by a little and you can be in trouble. Greens are very readable and true. For an unusual January round I was surprised how well the course played. A couple of months from now I am sure the course will be in great condition. A must play course for Somerset County.

Good day

The course was in good condition, greens a little slow. The staff in starter canopy and kitchen were great. Made it worth it. Incredible burger.

Great round!

Pandemic aside, what a great course! Well maintained fairways, thick rough, great greens, I can’t say enough. Only challenge I had was having no flags. First time on the course and sort of threw me off, but now I’m just nitpicking. All in an all, an excellent course. Worth every penny

Course conditions were pretty poor for the cost of a semi-private course. faded grass, patchy roughs, unkempt sand traps with weeds completely overtaking a few. I’ve played this course before and it’s usually very nice, and worth the money. Today it just wasn’t.

The staff was terrific and friendly though, and they navigated the COVID rules terrifically. I’ll come back here again sometime, but right now just not worth $99 a round with plenty of other good courses around.

Royce Brook East

Its Very Simple If you want to find your ball keep it in the Fairway. It may be because they were just re-opening but the 1st cut of the Fairways were extremely penalizing. I'm not a great player but shoot in the 80's. I lost 4 balls at least.
The course is in great condition otherwise. The staff was excellent and followed the safety protocols to a tee!
