This course is always in perfect condition. Beautiful bent grass fairways. If this course was closer to Indy it would be $75. Great course for the money and a steal on Golf Now hot deals.

Played an outing here, so it's a bit of a struggle to really get my thoughts right (always playing in fairway, no bunker play, etc).

Really cool place though, lots of humps, bumps and hills, with some weaving in between trees. Conditions were pretty good and some fun holes that will require you to know where you're going/how far to hit, etc.

I'm playing a regular round here in a few weeks, so I'll post a more thorough write-up after that.

Royal Hylands is a great course and hard to beat the value. The location of the course is about 45 minutes from Indianapolis and if they were closer to the city could certainly charge more. Great layout except for hole number 10. Always in good condition.

One of my favorites in Central Indiana!

I wish I could give more than 5 stars in the “Value for the Money” category. It is such a beautiful, interesting, and well kept course. It’s so good that it’s becoming my new home course in spite of being 45 minutes away. The greens are always in excellent condition and they are as challenging as it gets around here. If you haven’t played Royal Hylands you really won’t regret the drive.

I've been playing this track for 30+ years and feel this course is a gem. Greens are severe, fast and true. Longer holes are beasts. Short holes are tricky. The easiest hole will whip your tail. Staff has been nothing but pleasant every time I've been there. Golfnow deal let us play for 15 bucks.

One of the best kept secrets in the Indianapolis area. From the service of the staff, the conditions of the course, the pace of play, and the grilled chicken sandwich afterwards, you couldn't ask for more. If only this course was closer to home, I'd play here 3/4 days a week.

Royal Hylands is one of the best golf experiences in the area. It has challenging holes throughout. The greens are usually pretty fast. The price is reasonable for the quality of the course. But the GolfNow hot deals are not as good as last year. But it's still a good deal for what you get. The condition is always excellent from tee to green.

I was very surprised by this course. From the first hole till the eighteenth there isn't one hole that in anyway resembles any of the other holes. The fairways are perfect, they could be putting greens if cut shorter. The greens are very challenging, and I suppose that for the superintendent finding easy pin placements is also challenging on some of the holes. Driver is not always the best play off the tees as placement can be critical. The greens are kept very well and are a very nice speed. My only complaints are the condition of the teeing grounds both on the course and the practice range. It's not that they aren't maintained with plenty of grass, it's that it is a challenge to find a level surface to tee up in. I'd recommend using a sod machine to cut the grass off the top of the boxes, level them and replace the sod.

Thanks for the very enjoyable experience.
