Good course for the money

Only major complaint is there should be a ranger on the course pushing folks along who are playing slow. Some of the greens and sand traps need attention but we still enjoyed our round.

Course Needs a Real Starter and Ranger.
They let foursomes out ahead of singles and doubles. Pair people up and keep the groups moving. FIVE hour rounds are Really SAD

Good course

The fairways where in great shape but the bunkers and greens where not so great. Bunkers had weeds and hard as a rock the greens where damaged need some attention. No drinking water on course.

I’ve been playing this course for awhile and seems the attention to detail has fallen. I will continue to play a this course but something must be done .

I expect the little things to be there at the course price.

I played Royal Lakes on a Friday and did not see the cart person on the back nine at all. All but one cooler stand had a cooler of water in it and the greens were pretty burnt. I can understand the greens as the course can’t control the weather, but not having coolers and a cart person made me give a bad review. You should be able to do the little stuff and make the course worth the fee charged but this course did not make the par for that.

Good course with room for improvements on greens

All staff were great. They were polite and professional.
They even put ice and complimentary water bottles on each cart. As far as course condition goes, greens were in bad shape and it seems nobody was repairing ball marks. Greens in general were very slow and we had to putt it really hard. Also, I understand they had some heavy rain over previous night but bunkers were basically muds, not sands, with water puddles so most of them were unplayable. I may not play there again unless I pay less than 30 bucks.

Nice course...Slow Play

Royal Lakes is a nice course with a good lay out but the pace of play was something not to be desired. I remember a group on the green, a group in fairway and 2 groups on tee box. This should never happen IMO.. Course was a little rough around the edges but it is played continuously this time of year. Some areas need attention.....edging,cutting, and sod replacement

Had minor issues with residents that were out on the course. Slow afternoon, guess they thought no one was out playing the course…Still, look forward to playing this course again.

Soggy Day!

The course was wet but playable after summer storms hit the area including taking out power, internet, etc. in the clubhouse. The Staff was extremely friendly & allowed us to play first & pay after due to the technical issues. The course is an interesting layout with a few tricky hole designs that will test all levels of skill. Put this one on your must play list!

No power or carts

The clubhouse was struck by lightning and there were no carts so we were unable to play. The club pro said to request a refund on here and it would be refunded back to my card. Thanks!

The course was in good shape, the pace of play was good on the front 9 but the back 9 was very slow. No course marshal to check pace of play. Overall the course is very good.
