Good course, even better employees

Really a 4.5 if I could give. Owner Jeff, club pro Luke & employees Todd & Ben (hope I got all names correct) all are friendly & pleasant to talk with in person & on phone.
We were rained out after nine but got an acceptable rain check to come back. One of our favorite courses when we can get a deal. We’re a “frugal” group so regular fee a little more than we prefer. Highly recommend especially when you can get a good deal

Always Great

Great course layout and always in excellent shape. Staff is friendly and welcoming. Can't beat the amenities. My group plays here 4 to 5 times per year - never a disappointing round. All skill levels will be challenged but good scores are possible.

Great golf deal

Royal Lakes stood up to the over priced Country Clubs. Excellent course. and 2 of the most challenging holes are on #9 and #11. Good luck with these holes!

Solid course

Played after a lot of rain and things were soggy but course was in great condition. Some good driving holes, tough benders, and challenging par 3’s. 11 is tough, requires three perfect shots to beat it. Fun play.

Still Good

Nice course with nice staff. Practice facility is good to get warmed up. Fairways were little slow with the rain we had. Greens were soft and slow from rains today and the night before. I didn’t like fact that pitch marks were in abundance. Some repaired and some not which made for a bumpy day. We can only assume that they were preparing to aerate them. Played here before so I’m familiar with what greens look like. Challenging track with some very fun holes.

Outstanding Course

The fairways were great, greens a little fast. You got punished for hitting into the rough. I enjoyed the course since you had to use every club in your bag.
