Great Golf Course

I have always enjoyed playing at the monarchs of Royal islands. The maintenance is done very well the course is always in good shape and it is very forgiving for the intermediate golfer.

Everything but the greens we're horrible. Played the tips and tee boxes had no grass and fairways had more weeds than grass.

Usually very good but Needs Help

This course used to be a Hidden Gem, very reasonably priced and usually in excellent condition. Played this course the morning of July 4th and unfortunately I have to say that it's gone downhill quite a bit. The tee boxes barely have any grass on them and the fairways have Tufts of grass to where your ball actually gets caught up in them. Some spots in the fairways are also bear and do not have grass. This did not used to be the case. I would like to say that with a little bit of water and some TLC that this course could be a good one again. All this being said, for only $17 it is a pretty decent deal.

Getting better, some parts getting worse

Played the course again today 6/26 and the greens are much better than they have been in the past, somewhat slow but looking good, fairways are in fair condition, some areas are patchy but by far the biggest drawback where the tee boxes. Over half of them have little to no grass growing on them, just bare dirt and weeds. This course has the potential to be magnificent, but it needs work . Worth the price this time of year , hopefully rain will help it over the summer

Repeat player

Played here four times in the last six weeks. Find the fairways very forgiving. Tee boxes not in the best shape. Greens are large targets but require extra firm strokes to get close. I find that 3 putts have been more common here for me than at any other course that I ve played in the area. Pay attention to your putting attempts to get close. Fair pricing and the staff is very courteous. Will be back with firmer putting strokes.

It's going downhill

I've played this course a number of time and it has always been in very good condition and a great value. This last time I played tees were bare, fairways patchy, and greens were poor.

Wide open space. Forgiving fairways.

Got out at 7:30 am as a single. Played about 13 holes with no delay. Final holes followed two groups in. Finished in under three hours. Greens putted rather slowly for the second week in a row. Good value and conditions for the money. Will play here again.

Worth a round

The course in general was OK, although we only played 12 holes before a thunderstorm arrived and we finished at that point. The greens were good, but the fairways were in a few places, quite patchy. The tee-boxes were the worst part of the course with hardly any grass on them. If you don't mind that then you should enjoy it.

Good Layout / Very Poor Condition

Greens aerated, and need ,much watering; tee boxes have no grass; fairways need water and fertilization and weed killer applied.

Individual working at pro shop needs to develop a "personality".

A bit slow

Course was decent. Play was excruciatingly slow. Also had to wait for mower crew at a couple of holes that didn’t seem to care that he was in the way and backing everyone up.

Course condition

I play this course quit a bit but have not in the last 5 weeks
During this time the condition of the course has seriously regressed. The greens are still in good shape but t boxes and around the greens as well as many areas in the fairways have little to no grass on them.
This is a real shame because it used to be a favorite golf course What is happening?

Great layout

Beautiful course, in great condition. Fairways are very nice and the greens look beautiful. The only negative thing that can be said is that the greens may be the slowest in the state of Florida.Regardless, it is worth the money and the drive to Clermont.

Deceptively tough course with a few blind shots. Fun to play. Greens were not cut when we played and puts were slow and bumpy.

Great layout

Really a beautiful course. Greens in nice shape but a little too slow. Lots of changes in elevation for a Florida course. Drive over an hour and a half to play the course and it was worth every minute.The 19th hole was a little limited but the friendliness of the staff more than compensated. We will make the trip again.
