No pushover Muni!

For the price, I wasn’t expecting much. I just wanted a cheap round to play with my wife. I saw the sub 5500 total yardage from the tips and figured it’d be an easy round, like the muni near me, which they shuttered and sold to a developer a couple years back. Looking at the fairway from the first tee, nothing dissuaded me from this illusion. Then I got to the green…

To say the greens were contoured is an understatement. They are no joke! In fact, they are this course’s primary defense. On #2, a 185 yard par 3 over a ravine, I landed about 8’ from the pin, above the hole. Facing a downhill put, I gave it proper respect and barely tapped it to get it rolling on my line. It missed by 1” on the pro side and should have stopped within a foot, but it didn’t. It slowly crept past and then kept going, building speed and rolled off the green, down the hill, and ended up 15 yards away, 12 feet below the level of the green. An easy par, quickly and disastrously turned into a snowman!

I learned my lesson on my second time through, after the turn (it’s a 9-hole track), and humbly and appreciatively carded a 4.

Very fun

Very fun. Lots of elevation change. Great for solo play. Way nicer than I thought it would be for the price.

Royster Memorial

Awesome muni course that features scorable par-5’s and the par 4’s are short but a little tricky with holes that either have tight fairways or water you must carry with changes in elevation. For a $18 (holiday rate for 9) muni course, the tee boxes and greens exceeded expectations

Course is Longer Than Stated

I believe the yardage for this course is understated. Measurement must have been taken from above not having topography consideration (hills and valleys esp. hole nos. 3 and 7). It is still a nice course to play but add an additional length club on many holes.

Nice Little Course

This course is short but challenging. Very nice staff and in very good condition. 9-hole course but recommend trying it. Can’t beat the prices.

A Hidden 9 Hole Gem

My son and I played this 9 course for the first time. The clubhouse was somewhat hard to locate but the attendant was very friendly. The mountain like scenery was nice. This would be a difficult course to walk. Course conditions (carts, greens, fairways) were fine.

An Amazing Municipal Golf Course

This course is extremely nice for the cost. While it is only a 9 hole course, there are quite a few challenging holes which includes one blind tee shot. I’ve played at a lot of other courses within 45 miles or so of this course and paid a lot more for courses that weren’t in near as good of shape as Royster. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. I will be playing here again and often.
