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.

Water damages

There were some water damages (many holes had muddy fairway) on the corses. Other than that, everything was great. It was good value for the money.

Good track slow greens

While the greens were in good shape, they were very slow. Last two rounds here the greens have been fuzzy and slow. Probably won't come back until the greens speed up.

Nice for the money!

Staff were nice enough, course was in good shape, bent grass greens were relatively smooth but not overly fast.Not an extremely difficult course but has 4-5 holes with water that will get your attention. Overall an very enjoyable round.

Royal Lakes

I played Royal Lakes today with a couple of friends. Even though we had rain just a day ago the course was in very good shape. There were some soggy spots around some of the greens and some wash out and standing water in a couple of the traps, but overall everything was in good shape. I wish more people would repair their ball marks but that seems to be a problem everywhere.
Although my group was playing slow due to a new golfer in our group, other golfers playing up to us were very considerate and we let them play through with as little delay as possible

Just pure beauty!

What a joy it was to once again get to play this course!
Every hole is different and brings out your best, or worst. Very challenging and beautifully maintained. Greens are the best I’ve seen this year.

Outside services gentleman were a little unfriendly and rude

I paid for 18 holes playing as a single at 430. I was greeted by cart attendants at cart walking to 1st tee. He asked if I was playing 9 or 18? Being I paid for 18 that's what I'm expecting to play. There wasnt anyone or there so to believe a single would take over 4 hours he insisted I be back with cart by 8. As I was bringing the cart back after loading up my clubs the gentleman is standing there with his chest bowed up looking at his watch with his wrist shoulder lever out in front of him arm extended out. This was at 20 min before 8 and I had been done for 15 min while loading up. And 2 or 3 more group were still on the course. I just thought it was exceptionally rude and uncalled for with the cart guys attitude from pulling in until leaving. Pro shop guy had great attitude and that was about the only one that looked like he cared and appreciated the business.
