I played this course earlier in the season and was very nice ! Winter conditions are not as good . Sand traps filled with water or leaves or both! Greens are bumpy and SLOW!

No surprises

Considering I played on 12/31 the course was in rather good shape. The greens were in excellent shape, for December and I hope they remain this way. I'm looking forward to see what the spring brings for this course, hope the trend continues upward.

I shall return

Interesting layout, more so on the back 9 which is more open, too. Solid par 3s that are challenging, but not overwhelming. Pace of play on the front was about 2 hours, but back 9 backed up considerably. Could have used a starter and a ranger to maintain pace of play. There was none in site and group in front of us got slow and people had gone off the front separately when they should have been together. For the money paid, not great. But, still a great time! Let’s get back to normal and so glad you’re open!!

Pleasantly surprised

Considering there wasn’t a starter and I had to check in inside for a prepaid round with a person who obviously was frustrated because of ,I was pleasantly surprised .
The course is in great shape except for the sand traps ( mostly filled with water). Also , pace of play was without any delay .

Nice track

Course conditions(fairways and greens aerated. Greens also had a heavy dose of sand) did not merit $100 green fees

Royce Brook Round Sunday Nov 8

Played this last Sunday. Great weather....course in decent shape. Some bunkers not draining well but others were in great shape in spite of no rakes. Foursome 2 groups ahead were slow and could have used a ranger to remind them to pick up the pace. Would play there more often but do think it’s over-priced vs other options.

Play too slow. No Rangers to speed up play. Many bunkers filled with water.
