Covid 19 lockdown

Finished a great round right at lockdown time. Course was busy but staff had everyone spaced out and pace was pretty good. Greens rolled pretty good for this time of year. Grass is starting to come in good.

Raised golf cups

Because of the Coronavirus Royal Lakes have raised the golf cups on every golf hole. This is not golf anymore This takes away about 30% of the game away.
I'm not sure how this is preventing the spread of the virus. This is not distancing. i just didn't understand why the course elected to do this.

Thank you for your review. We did this so people are not sticking their hands in the cups to retrieve their balls. The goal is to reduce the touching of communal spaces as much as possible. If everyone sticks their had in that cup, then the virus is easily transferred if one of those people was ill. All that we do is in an attempt to keep our golfers as safe as possible. We hope you'll return again in the future.

Good value

Great course for the money. I like how they’ve tried to minimize the virus risk. I’d enjoy it if the left the pins above ground after things are back to normal. It improved the pace of everyone.

Royal Lakes

A few areas of the course is still pretty wet. About the time this course is in prime shape, I’m worried the Coronavirus will have everything closed. Beautiful day to be on the golf course

Great layout

This course is a great layout for all skill levels. Has some beautiful holes especially around the lake. Risk reward is always in play making you decide whether to play it safe or take a risk and go for the greens.

Good course considering mid winter conditions

It was cold so course was not busy. They were completely caught up from an early morning frost delay so pace of play was around 3 hrs. For an 11:10 tee time

Greens were good, as were fairways, bunkers were great.

Good course, nice folks and a good value

Great potential but not up to par condition-wise

Overall condition of the course wasn’t up to par. The greens were a little slow but were by far the best part of the course. As for the fairways, rough and bunkers; they definitely were not maintained properly. Overall for the money, not a bad value but in comparison to other courses they need to tighten up tee to green.
