Play It Again!!

This was our multiple time in playing this course for its scenic views and course layout. What a great course to challenge each of your drives, approaches and chipping. Do you think this course is too easy; try the 18th par five and then decide. We will play it again!!

Fantastic Day!!

What a wonderful course. The greens and fairways were perfect. Very scenic and forgiving for errant shots. The spacing between tee times were calculated perfectly allowing for a comfortable round with a foursome in front and twosome behind. The staff were very accommodating. I am ready to. book my next round there.

Slow play

This course can be played by 4 average players in less than 4 hours, many of the groups in front of us just didn't understand that you need to keep pace with the group in front of you...Marshalls need to help ...

Average Great Life Course

The course needs work. Great Life courses seem to be just under par in that way. The fairways need work and the tee boxes are pretty bad. But the staff was great and it was easy to get on the course. It was basically a get what you pay for kind of course.

Florida visitor

Slow play with 2 groups waiting on most tee boxes and no marshalls. Tee boxes bad shape and fairways need help. Traps unplayable. Good news is greens are the best feature. Low rates attract beginners, golfers who play 1 or 2 times year, and seniors. Will never play this course again.

UnGreat Life

Every course that Great Life has bought were absolutely ruined. Royals Meadows has made a comeback. They have finally done some work on the tee boxes. They are not perfect but better than pure sand they used to be.The sand traps are playable, although they were rain filled today. The fairways were in good condition. The re-sodding is paying off. Still striped but playable. The greens in good condition. A little woolly and the holes are not sharply cut. Grass grows over the edge of the hole. A great value, hard to lose a golf ball, and plays very fast.

Shot building course

Great course for working on your game. Two of my 3 lowest rounds were recorded here. Greens always in good shape, medium speed. Fairways good except in really
hot weather.

Decent course

The course is filled with a variety of holes--short and long par 3's, with par 4's and 5's that may test longer hitters even. Decent shape for so early in the year. Basically, it will be a good course for most of us sometime hackers out there, and it offers good play for the $$ spent.

Love This Course Except for the Fairways

Most of the fairways are strips.
Other than that, the greens were in great shape and it's a fun course.
