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.

great time with the bumpy greens

Greens were just punched but had been sanded and played good for what was done, slower than expected but we were all playing the same greens! Had some trouble with finding balls in the rough - but our fault, don't hit there!?! Lpts of good shots and too many bad, again we were just playing and enjoying ourselves.

enjoyed the outing

Have not played the course for about a year, had a great time, the pace of play was perfect, had to wait very little for the foursome in front of us, the threesome behind us kept us moving but not pushing.
The greens were fair, not super fast but nice to play. Fairways had plenty of grass (we have had rain recently which helps) and the tee boxes were good.
The course is close to us and we play many in the area, will play again soon.

Fun outing

It was a shotgun start and I golfed with another couple that lives in the community. The pace was good we were never held up by group in front of us. Greens, & Fairways were in great shape. Nice layout.

TURKEY SHOOT

Don't go on Tuesday/Thursday afternoon, they have those "shoots". We didn't realize it. Even though they knew we weren't with the "groups", we still had to play as if we were in it - started on the 7th hole. Good pace - no one in front of us but, it got very humid. Didn't play too bad, several pars!! The staff was nice. The golf pro showed us a short cut to the 7th hole. The lady at the desk was very helpful. Nice place to play - we've played there b4 and will play there again!!

Keeps us interested

I think the best part of this course would be the contours and different elements. It fits in the landscape instead of a course just made of long drives and contrived situations
