First time at Royston - very impressed. Hilly, challenging, great views. Lucky to be in a quiet patch so no other players nearby so able to really appreciate the complex layout and location. Will definitely be back.
Great course, challenging all the way
Royston is a favourite of mine. It is very tough for its length, like an inland links, really up and down as well and winds challenging. You have to think on every hole and if you get a couple of bad breaks the score racks up. But it certainly has made me a better player; and if you live miles from the sea like I do this is the closest to a challenging links you will find.
Don't play this course if your toupee is not secure!
Fantastic course - very exposed to the elements but in excellent condition. My group had a cancellation due to a course closure in Norfolk so we detoured to play this inland as it was en route to our destination. Didn't know what to expect, and we were all very happy with it. Don't think any of us had played in that wind before, but felt it prepared us nicely for coastal links golf! Thanks for accomodating at such short notice.
Hills and more hills
Played this course yesterday and the first thing you notice is where is the first tee, a par 5 away, then all your doing is climbing hill after hill, you need a buggy for sure otherwise you will be absolutely shattered by the end of your round, greens were poor, sanded and not really running true, the only thing I can say is when you are at the top of the course the views are great, but for me not a enjoyable round of golf
What a course!!! It’s been on my doorstop for years but didn’t think I was good enough to play there...everyone was so friendly and helpful (especially when we had to ask a few times where the next tee was). Condition of the course was first rate...we are definitely going back..
Decent but could be better.
Course is very hilly. There’s just far too many hikers, walkers and kids running around on the boundaries of the course. Obviously that is very annoying but it’s also very dangerous. There should be a ban on members of the public walking around the course. They shouldn’t have any access, particularly as the course is extremely hilly and you can’t always see who’s walking across the fairway - you think it’s clear and you hit one and then as your ball is at peak height you suddenly see a couple of heads appearing over the hills - right where your ball is heading.
I got this course for a hot deal at £19 which I think is a fair price, seeing that it is £30-£35 at other times I think is overpriced.

Great pro shop, happy members, the course is un like anything I have played before felt like a seaside links, no water and not really tree lined the rough and the wind protect this course. Many great holes that make you really think about which clubs to use I would recommend this course to anyone wanting a different challenge.
Lovely course after some rain
Played here after a few days of rain and the course was absolutely amazing. Greens, fairways and tee boxes were in great condition. Although not being that long, it certainly is a challenge. My friend even managed to make his first ever eagle. Staff were very friendly too.
Scenic course in a great condition
First time we had played this course, it was tricky but very enjoyable. Greens were in great condition and each hole was like a feature hole! Will definitely play again!
Can’t argue was happy after my round yesterday, well organised For the current situation Although luckily someone was near the clubhouse to tell us to park up the road and report to man on 1st tee Or it might of been a little confusing but apart from that all good.
Great layout and friendly staff
Very good round of golf really enjoyed can’t wait to go back
One of the best and most challenging courses in this area
A fantastic course with everything other than water, presents many challenges particularly for the more aggressive golfer!
You’ll earn your steps!
Great course and layout. So many holes could be “feature” holes.
Don’t expect many easy shots. Always got to consider the change in height and wind certainly plays it part! It’s tough on the legs but the course condition was excellent. Greens were running true!
Excellent golf course and experience
Royston is a unique golf course being a local nature reserve and area of scientific interest on common land. Therfiled heath was a wonderful place to spend an afternoon and we had the entire course to ourselves. Definitely would recommend as an experience and the club shop and clubhouse staff were extremely helpful and friendly.
Challenging in the rain!
This is a unique course, which plays longer than it actually is. From the white tees it is quite a challenge. Lots of uphill shots make club selection interesting. The course is exposed to the elements, so when the wind blows it is tricky. We thoroughly enjoyed our round. I would recommend getting a buggy because it is quite a walk between holes. We parked at the tennis club to get access to the first tee.
Brought back memories
Course as ever in great condition and the hills are as draining on your legs as they always were. Used to play here a lot as a youngster, removal of road holes diminishes the course a little but such is life. Never too busy here because of the physical demands but beware the walkers and families with dogs who often don't show you much consideration- they can ruin the odd shot for you! Very different to most courses in our area and worth so long as your legs can take the slopes
