Waste of time

Course pace was insanely slow. It took 3 1/2 hours to play 9 holes. I left after 13 holes. Tee boxes were horrible. Most of the fairways just as bad. Some greens were quick and some you needed a driver to get it close. Plus all the bumps you have to deal with. Definitely NOT going back or recommending to anyone i know.

Course staffs are great!

I have been playing here for many years. There were staffs changes but overall the staffs have been always great and helpful. There was an issue with my tee time when I booked. I was confirmed at 6:15 am and got confirmation from GolfNow as such. But, it was not a valid tee time since sunrise is 6:50 am at this time of the year. When I arrived the tee time shown on their system showed 6:23 am which is still too early to let us out. Fortunately, the starter Bret whom I knew was nice enough to let us out a bit earlier when it was still a little dark but we could start playing. It was a great round as always. Thanks to the friendly and helpful staffs at Royal Vista!

Passing me by

We played a foursome and at a fair pace. And we were passed by twosomes , four times in our round.

Which caused us to wait at Tee boxes on the next holes

Marshall’s all over the course ( there 3 separate 9 hole courses) but didn’t seem to have an issue with the other groups passing us up at Will.

Little frustrating

Not a bad course, just a bit dry

The course was fun. My friend and I started at 8:23 on Saturday and had about a 5 hour round. We had a rough day out there for half the holes after joining another twosome. The fairways were a bit burned, but the course provided a good challenge. The greens were just aerated, which I knew going in, so putting was bumpy and slow, but all in all, not a bad day out there. I'd play again when the greens are in good shape.

GREAT COURSE

I PLAYED SEVERAL ROUNDS ALREADY THIS YEAR AND ALWAYS HAD FUN PLAYING GOLF IN THIS COURSE.

THE ONLY DOWNSIDE IS THE RANGE BUT I USUALLY DON'T HAVE TIME TO USE IT SO, IT DOESN'T MATTER.

Great course for the value

I have been playing this course for many years. The condition has been improved for the last few years. Staffs are always friendly and helpful.

I consider this is my home course and will play here whenever I can.

Bad visit again

I played this course a few months ago and didn’t enjoy the round very much. I gave it another chance today and it was just as bad. The pace of play was brutal again, probably worse this time. I understand it’s saturday and always busy, but there’s several things that can be done to keep pace of play at least decent. The entire staff just makes excuses and no one really cares. It’s starts by booking so many tee times close together, to the starter not controlling teeing off on time, to the Marshall not enforcing pace of play. I won’t be back.

Will not let you walk on weekends

Even with excessively slow play and for no good reason they require you to take a cart. I prefer to walk whenever a course is walkable as this is how the game is meant to be played.

Poor management and careless staff

A buddy and I booked a round of golf on GolfNow for a Wednesday 7/11 and got there bright and early. We paid for North/South which I was looking forward to playing, instead they started us on south and wanted to finish on the east course. Unfortunately my buddy was made aware of a family emergency during play on the 7th hole. We drove to the course together so I had to rush him home to his family. We rushed to the pro shop to see if we can get a voucher for a future 9 hole round so the staff member went to the back to ask his manager what they could do. He took his time while he was very aware I had an emergency to attend to then finally brings me a business card. The manager must have been too busy to deal with paying customers. Things come up, accidents and emergencies happen, instead of being understanding and making things easier on us we ended up just wasting valuable time. This is my first ever review of an establishment, I’m writing only in hopes that the owner reads this and gets his staff together for a long lesson on customer service.

I have not played this course for some time because it used to be very slow play, but not on 6/27/18 when I played.

I will play this course again soon and hope that the pace of play is good as it was on 6/27/18.

The staff was very friendly !!!

Pick up the pace

My friend and I liked the course but the pace of play was very poor. As we were waiting for the group in front of us a group behind us were yelling to play. Of course we couldn't or we would have hit the group in front. The marshals need to ask the groups to move on a little quicker or let the group behind play through. I am not a prejudice person but the Asians that play seem to play like they are the only ones on the course. To many practice swings and then after they hit the ball a couple of more practice swings. I try to get along with everyone on the course but it does get a little frustrating.
