Slow play

Very slow play today. Groups in front were not golfers and there were no Marshall’s on the course to push them along or monitor behavior. Twice saw groups park at the edge of the green and at least once drive across a tee box. Just goofing around on the green and tee boxes really slowed play

Nice place to relax and enjoy a sunny day

This is my home course for day because it is very close to home. Been playing here for 20 plus years. It changed owners a few times but maintained decent condition anyway.

Staffs always been nice because I kinda know them all and they know me by first name.

Will come back whenever I can. It’s always worth it

Would recommend

Located in Diamond Bar/Walnut, this course is a gem. We played during a holiday week so it was very crowded. Managed to finish in over 5 hours. I do enjoy the layout and the shape of the course was good for it being a public course. There are 27 holes. We played the South and East. South is short and very narrow with a lot of ob on both sides so it presented a challenge for me since I'm long and crooked off the tee. The East side was longer and wide which I always take advantage of and like. Weather was perfect and I made 3 birdies shooting 6 over par. Got to spend time with the family from out of town so it was special for me. I would recommend Royal Vista to anyone.

First Time Playing

First time

Great value. The greens were fantastic. Fairways were very thin in spots and over watered in others, but generally in good shape. A lot of blind shots, so challenging for the first time at this course. Will certainly play this track again with knowledge.

First Time Playing

Veterans Day

First timer here. Booked earliest open tee time on GN (6:56), and we finished at 11:20....being Veterans Day it could have been much worse but we were pleasantly surprised. Fun course. Positives: pace, value, staff, layout, elevations, greens. Cons: bunkers (pure dirt/mud), fairways sparse or muddy in many spots, no cart girl, many tee box seemed unlevel, lots of debris on all fringes around greens (cuttings, clippings, punch debris) All in all fun round and would do it again. Not an easy course for beginners.

No food here!

You would think on prime time weekend play you could get food, think again. No food here big waste of snack shop. If they would hire a couple of Mexican ladies to work burritos, tacos, burgers it would be a hit...Store inside has great prices on all golf stuff.

Grubby

This course is pretty junky, dirt patches in the fairways and in the rough. Greens are nice, but the rest of the course looks like crap...bunkers have sand that is not the typical sand and of course not maintained whatsoever. Probably never play this hunk of junk again!

Good Saturday morning round

For a holiday weekend the pace of play was great, we finished in 4 hours and 10 minutes. Were not held up at a single hole. Course conditions were good and the weather was hot and sunny. This course tends to play slow so a round at a regular pace is nice. Paired up with another two-some who were nice and enjoyable to play with.
