Royal Links Golf Club
Loved the Track
I really liked the course. I played with two high handicappers (+20), they did not care for the course. The one guy said - "the only reason I would go back is to find all the golf balls I lost." I think he lost 6 balls in the tall grass - but he was erratic off the tee. I am currently a 5.4 index that is capable of shooting +15 on any given day. I loved the course and will definitely play there each time I travel to Vegas. I shot +9 - first time I played it. Play the correct tees and you'll find the course is very fair. I'll be back - I loved the course!

Nice course fun to play holes that mimic open courses.

Royal Links is a great experience. Booked tee time through Golf Now and had no problems getting on at 7:00 a.m as a single. Got paired up with another first-time single. Played in about 3 hours. Course was in great condition. Greens were punched about 3 weeks ago and the practice green was the worse one. All others were rolling great. Staff and service were outstanding. Even valet parked my car at the bag drop. Enjoyed the hole descriptions at each tee box.

Royal Links is a great course.
Course is in excellent condition. The staff was very friendly and the food and drinks were great. Keep your ball out of the long stuff and don't waste your time trying to hit out of it. We hit 3 balls in and found them and tried to play out and no one was successful. The starter mentioned to us about not trying to go pin seeking, that the greens would not hold the balls, but we found that the greens accepted shots much like any other US course. It was a fun round and I would go back.

Royal Links is royal disaster
We were not told that the greens has recently been aerated and as a visit payinging $90 green fees, this was nothing more than playing on some local club that is more hype than anything.
Pace of play was absolutely terrible and was backed up the entire day. I can get that at home.
We has to ask to get a ranger out on the course to push players
After playing cascata and Paiute the days before, this is a total let down and would never recommend it
Course not in great condition

A Royal Disappointment at Royal Links
My group was very disappointed to see that the greens today had been aerated a few weeks ago and we were not told this when making the reservation, The greens were in terrible condition and had we known, would not have played this course. Also, the pace of play was poor with several groups holding up play, but not course rangers to push them along. The course has a nice layout and otherwise is a reasonable, but not another a special course to okay while vacationing in Las Vegas.

Royal rip off
The course was in great shape with only about 6 or 7 groups out on course so we could have played quickly if we wanted but took time and enjoyed the track. The starter and other attendants were awesome with some helpful hints to getting around painlessly. My only complaint was the pro shop. I shopped around and paid $69 per person at 1130am. 20- 50$ cheaper than other "deals". They tried to charge $75 bucks for rental clubs. RIDICULOUS . I could have traveled my own there for cheaper. The guy working looked at my price and said I got a good deal so there was no discount on clubs. I huffed and puffed a bit and they dropped it to "the rack rate". I thought standard rate was the rack rate. So I advise u to get quote ahead for club rental or just bring your own. They were nice callaways at least. Course was awesome and a lot of fun. Watch out for pot bunkers

We love this course!
We play Royal Links on every Las Vegas trip, and this trip we'll play it on the first day and on the last day. Knowing the history of each hole is fun (each is patterned after a significant hole in the British Isles: Royal Troon, Prestwick, St. Andrews, Muirfield, etc.). the 2nd nine starts off with the famous "Road Hole" of St Andrews!
This is a well maintained challenging golf course, with a great restaurant for a little relaxation after your round. The entire staff: from the groundskeepers to the starters to the pro shop employees to the restaurant staff, are fabulous!!
