Mr Q

We played this course couple of years ago and was really looking forward to round today, it's appears that course has been let go a bit, tee boxes not well marked out, bunkers have weeds and big stones in them, will be in no rush back. Photo below is not worse bunker.

Rough Greens and shabby bunkers

Greens were patchy, rough, hairy, impossible to read leading to a frustrating round. The bunkers were poorly maintained, little sand and most had grass growing in them!!

Rough rough

Down Royal is the only place you can play short of heading to the coast, on a wet day. It is well-drained and offers playing opportunities where many other courses would be closed.
The course is interesting, some holes where the tee shot is blind, 2 doglegs and particularly in its par 3s, two of which are well protected by water.

I have seen improvements in the course management in the last 2 years, however the rough is still left very long and a good drive that rolls off the fairway is unfortunately not findable. With the new handicap system, this course is considered easy however you will loose balls in the rough and that makes playing to the HC difficult.

It has the potential to be a great facility but just needs a little more care and attention.

Great course for first timer

this course offers a great range of challenging shots but with my bad skills I felt like it was 70% water but had a great time
