Good course poor pace

This course is hit or miss with pace of play. Some rounds flow great and we finish in a normal time frame (3-1/2 - 4-1/4 hours) but other times (like Sat Jul 13 at 5-1/4 hours) it is painful. When it's like that you can't get any groove or flow going so our game isn't that enjoyable. Greens ran true with the course in good condition and we really enjoy playing there but the pace (what else can I say).

Who takes care of this course

Grass is overgrown, greens covered in divots and bumps, trash all over the course, sand traps are like hitting off the cart path, tons of crab grass and dead spots in the middle of the fareway, and the dirt on the dead spots on the fareway are rock solid. The quality of this course is abysmal. Save your money cause this course isn't worth it at all.

Tough greens

The course is in good conditions. The greens are hard to read and very unpredictable and fast. There were some slow women groups in front, but the Marshall instructed us to skip two holes and come back to play the one we missed. Applause to the management!

Better than expected

After reading some other recent reviews, I was a bit hesitant to go play this course, but I ended up being pleasantly surprised. We played the East and North courses and they were in good condition minus a few ground under repair areas that were being tended to. The greens and fairways were overall in good shape as well. We were let out as the twosome that we booked and not paired with anyone, which is always a plus for me. We finished our round in just under 4 hours, which is almost unheard of in golf today, so that alone will get me to come back again. The starter was also very friendly.

Fast, enjoyable round

East course was wide open, we played it in record time, hour and fifteen. North Course was fairly quick until we ran into a few groups. Conditions were excellent, tees, fairways and greens!

This course is generally acceptable.

This course is near from my residence to approach easily. It's generally acceptable expect to develop the condition of bunker as well as fairway.

Tough cookie

This course isnin fantastic shape but it is not an easy course. It has narrow fairways and some of the greens are small for difficulty. Had an awesome round, can't wait to play it again and beat this score.

Fun layout, needs maintenance

Having played Royal Vista multiple times, I based my ratings on the most recent visit.

Tee boxes: poor. Definitely needs maintenance. I've played here about a half dozen times, and they definitely need maintenance on it. All boxes had way too much grass, some were too hard for a tee, some were ok for a tee.

Fairway: fine. You were rewarded for a good shot, definitely.

Rough: if there isn't some tournament happening soon, then the rough was too much.

Greens: good roll, receptive to quality strikes. Greens were definitely the best part of my most recent RV visit.

POP: a bit of slowness, even with the marshal moving about. Some more encouraging could have moved the POP a bit more.

Challenging but under seasonal seeding

I enjoyed my first experience at Royal Vista, but the North Course was closed due to maintenance, so I played South/East courses. My buddy and I was joined by a regular player at this course and he advised to come back in a month, around May 1, when conditions will be more favorable. Nonetheless, the course was challenging with driver and long irons required. Pace of play for 18 was between 3 1/2 - 4 hrs, since many regulars stayed away due to North Course closure. After play the Clunhouse has a large open Pro Shop and separately a large upscale 19th Hole Lounge to relax, eat, drink, and play pool or watch many positioned TV’s. I look forward in returning to play the North/East Course.

Always enjoy playing here

I have been playing this course for 20 years. It has gone through some nice renovations, Green condition has improved a lot, although some tee areas are not exactly level, overall is not bad. Staffs are always polite and friendly. Other players always let us ( 2-some ) out first since we’re always get there earlier than our tee time. I will definitely come back for more as long as they keep being accommodating and maintain the course condition like this.
