JUST GO PLAY THERE!

Tees, fairways, traps and especially greens all in wonderful shape. Always enjoy this moderately easy tree lined layout. Get a good deal from Golf Now.

Royal Oak Experience

The course is challenging but the fairways are in poor condition. Almost no grass. Most shots are like hitting off of hard pan. The greens are fast and in very good condition, No extra amenities were open.

Consistently Great!

Have played Royal Oaks several times and have never been disappointed in the condition of the course. Today's round started out a little cool and warm up nicely. The rains held off but the winds increased as we played the last four holes. It was overall a good day, very enjoyable especially seeing the turkeys run around the course.

Greens Fast

Drives must almost always be on fairways, if not you'll struggle with the challenging trees that surrounds this entire golf course. The greens were nearly impossible to judge the speeds, not much undulations but lightning fast. Had an enjoyable round.

Greens are so good. The rolling of the ball is so true . The leaves are in the woods and not on the course .

The course had too many leaves on fairways and greens. it was hard to find the ball in the fairways. The fairways are very tight, no grass or very little. Sand traps needed raked and worked. Greens , however are very good and the ball rolls out nicely. They are on the fast side because of the cold weather and being rolled..
