Perfect Sunday tee time

We only had one golfer behind us and the course was in good shape despite the rain. There were a few mussy spots but manageable

What happened to cutting grass

We lost 4 balls because of it the higher grass. The course should have been shut down because of all the water and the tall grass. The greens were fine. I’ve played this course several times and it has never looked this bad

The course was absolutely in perfect condition. The greens were good and the fairways were good. Some tee boxes were a little less than good. I love the layout but the drainage problem is HUGE. We were almost up to the floorboards with the water on the cart path. It was cart path only, and it was so hot and so humid that it was really a sauna. We quit after nine, and they graciously gave us a 9-hole rain check.
I don't think we'll play again without asking if it's a cart path only day. We lost several balls in standing water. The course was beautiful but access to the course was not.

Horrible

Course was in extremely poor condition, greens were nice but all else was terrible. If you weren’t in the fairway it’s a good chance you lost the ball. Rough was extremely overgrown and under water.. Huge irrigation problem and cart path only. Not a fun day at all.

The course needs to be better maintained. Several tee boxes were in rough shape and the grass is too high just off of the fairways. Far too many weeds around the greens.

Course was soggy in spots and the rough was a bit tall. Thiss was VERY understandable considering how rain we have been getting. Best bet is to stay in the fairway. If you do that, it’s a very plea to place to play.
PS liked the 19th hole a lot

Enjoyable

Played 7/13/21. Overall nice experience, course getting better and better despite being very wet from recent heavy rains. Young man in pro shop friendly, cart guys were excellent. Greens were good, rolled faster than usual. Need to clean up some forced carries… can’t see fairway from back tee on queen 6 or green from back tee on queen 7. Should be really good when summer rains are over.

They have it ALL!!

This is my GO TO track! Quite honestly like all courses there’s areas that are a bit rough but overall this place and it’s staff and most importantly the courses (3 separate 9’s) are all drastically different and no 2 holes the same. You can score great or have your butt handed to ya quickly on a hole so play wise but feel free to go for it if you’re an advanced stick. The tee boxes are all in good shape. The greens, every one of them are lush and depending on the weather and cut they can be sluggish to quite slippery and speedy and they will break in spots so heads up! The food is AWESOME and affordable with a fantastic chef so try anything as you won’t be disappointed. The cart girls have everything you need and you’ll see them frequently which is fantastic and they are so nice. Now let’s cover the staff…… they are the absolute finest folks in town. They care, they help and are on the ball when it comes to getting a cart right to your car so tip these great guys and gals as they’re top notch! And granted it may not be of the elite clubs in Florida I’d never trade these people or the great golf for the arrogant and downright rudely overpriced other courses in SWFL. Nobody deserves how others treat us local’s to spit on us for the snowbird money. At Cape Royal they are always grateful to have you play and dine outside or in the awesome bar. So get on here and book a round or 10!! Best in the Cape!

Since it's the rainy season here in Florida, the course was a little soft, but I didn't see as much of a drainage problem as there has been, but some of the cart paths are like low water crossings at times. The course has some beautiful holes, and some challenging holes and I think it plays well for all levels of golfers with the tee boxes, etc.

Long course with lots of water

Played the Prince and King courses from the blues, definitely felt like a longer course than my usual executive par 60; even the par 3's were long. There's water on every hole, usually denoted by palm trees where it starts and ends, unless it's super obvious. Be accurate off the tees, or bring a dozen balls, your choice!

Greens were in great shape, a little fast, but it's been pretty dry lately. Fairways were similarly nice, but the rough was a bit more... well, rough. Grass was spotty and clumped in the rough; sometimes, your ball would lay up against a clump of grass and the rough shot was much harder, sometimes it was almost like hitting out of the fairway.

One thing to note, there was no water on course, just at the clubhouse. If it's hot, which it was when I played, make sure to get yourself an extra cup of ice.

I liked it

Overall the course is playing well. Greens rolled smooth, Fairways and tee boxes were in good shape. I was looking forward to trying the Surf Board Golf cart. I had watched the video and signed the waiver, but upon arriving, the man in the clubhouse said none of them were working.
