Closed

Made reservation through golfnow and excited even though almost an hour trip there and when we finally arrived, it was closed on Mondays. Took my money and it was closed, guess they didn't bother to update it on golfnow... my family should get a free round for the long trip. I'm off on Mondays and we ended not playing any golf that day, bummer... if only they took the time to update that they were closed on Mondays... #@@!@#$$$#@@%%^

Always a great day out

For the day after heavy rain, the course was very good.
Staff excellent as usual
It was bitterly cold but the pace of play made up for it as we moved at our own brisk pace.

First Time Playing

Double book tee times

Nice course. Friendly staff. Good shape.
Only negative thing was that they double booked tee times. Members started on 15 or 16 like a shot gun start and were allowed to play thru tee times on hole #1 which backed up tee times 15-20mins. Pace of play improved as the round progressed, but ended up being over a 4 hour round on a Thursday morning.

Challenging, but beautiful course!

I have played Royal Lakes a few times, and I think it is one of the best courses in north metro Atlanta area. The course conditions were in fantastic condition; the greens are some of the best I’ve played this year! This is a challenging course with lots of variety; some easy, open holes and some tough ones! I view this as a good mental game course (you have to pick your shots wisely and know your yardages well). Don’t be afraid to lay-up and you will usually be rewarded for it. Stay out of the rough during the fall (lost a few balls that I couldn’t find). I will definitely return often and play here. Keep up the great work!

We've very sorry about this mix up. If you booked the tee time through GolfNow.com, I'm afraid they're the only ones who can change it.

Good course, even better employees

Really a 4.5 if I could give. Owner Jeff, club pro Luke & employees Todd & Ben (hope I got all names correct) all are friendly & pleasant to talk with in person & on phone.
We were rained out after nine but got an acceptable rain check to come back. One of our favorite courses when we can get a deal. We’re a “frugal” group so regular fee a little more than we prefer. Highly recommend especially when you can get a good deal

Course was great and very challenging. Other than the greens under construction the course was in great condition and played well. Look forward to coming back here in a few weeks when the greens are in great condition.
