Beautiful golf course
Beautiful golf course with many challenging holes and very friendly staff… If I had any suggestions, it would be to move the senior tees a little bit closer to the greens.
Thank you for leaving us five stars!
Continues to decline
I used to love this course and play it regularly. The course/staff has been on the decline for the last couple of years. They had trouble with their greens a year or two ago and had to keep them extremely long to keep from losing them all together. While the greens were in better shape than the last time I played the course (about a year ago) they still are not very good. When I checked in and asked for range balls I was told the range was closed (because it was too wet). I should have been informed of this when I made the tee time (same day). When I finished my round there were 5 or 6 guys beating balls on the range ??? If you want better greens and a cheaper price go down the street to Chicopee. Their greens are in great shape and the range is never closed. Better pace of play as well. Hopefully Royal Lakes will get their act together and become the "Country Club" they claim to be. Until then I wont be coming back.
We're sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your experience with us. We will pass along your feedback to our management team.
Great course, nice layout. If only people would use their sand in the fairways and fix divots on the greens. A little slow on the front. I was a single wedged in between a few threesomes. Finally played through on the back. Overall, a great course and will go back, but tee times could be a bit more organized for a “slow” Monday.
Challenging but fair layout
I used nearly every club in my bag on this course. Great value for the money, friendly staff. It's on my list of favorites that I will continue to play.
A must play in northern suburbs.
Be prepared to have a 5 hour round
This is a SEMI private golf course.. which means that if your not a member... be prepared. Soooo enjoyed waiting all day (not) behind a member and their kids dropping and hitting 2 and 3 balls at time..: yes, for real. No Marshall to help to fix the issue.. Tied up the GC for the whole afternoon. Bailed after 13 because 4 hours had already elapsed. Pointless. I understand that your new to the game, we all have been there however... what are we teaching here to allow this ? Bad ethics. Never coming back recommend you don’t waste your time and $.
Could you give me more specifics into your experience? I would like to know the day, time, and reservation name of when you played.
I do not support practicing on the course because of the experience you endured. This information will help me narrow down who might have been the players.
Thank you for your help.
Great Course for $30
Nice course. Very well manicured. Challenging island hole. Only complaint is there are several holes where you need to lay up.
Beautiful and challenging
Beautiful and challenging course but very busy… many tough but scenic shots ... Break course for an intermediate golfer!
Great course for the money
Royal Lakes is a one of the courses that once you play the course, you'll want to come back and try the course again. It has a mix of easy and hard holes that make you think about how to attack the hole before you hit your tee shot. I like that it's not a course where you just hit driver and wedge on every hole.
I enjoy playing this course, but the greens are usually faster and in better shape. We seem to have some kind of black fungus on the greens. The rest of the course is in good shape and as always, very challenging.
Slow on a Saturday
Very slow, and sandwiched between some foursomes, who were Asians and would not let us play through. We were a twosome. They didn't repair ball marks on the greens, and even though there was at least an entire hole open, never would acknowledge that we were on their tail all day. It would be nice to see some signs to let faster players play through. Just seemed uncourteous to me and my playing partner.
Always a good play
I have played Royal Lakes on and off for some 15 years and it never disappoints. The course is challenging enough and is great for a neighborhood course. The staff is friendly and during the week the pace is very good. Some of the greens have a few bad spots, but the fairways are great and always fun to play. We will certainly be back again soon.
this course is very challenging. beautiful island green on hole 11. the staff does an excellent job to make sure your day starts and ends great. I would paly this course everyday if I could. thank you royal lakes staff for a unforgettable experience see yall again soon
Great day at Royal Lakes. Course is in great shape. Greens were in good shape.with only a few areas of dead spots. Rolling much better than my previous round there. Definitely a great day at a great golf course.
Course is in great shape for this time of the year. I played here few months ago as fairway was getting new growth during early spring and was good shape for that time of the year also.
Great course except slow players
The golf course is great, still little sand on the greens. The worst thing was a very slow group in front of us did not play us through. They looked the course members. You should not make it semi-public if the members don't want the public to play.
