Royal Links Golf Club
Vegas Does Scotland
I was familiar with this course when I booked my round. I knew they were trying to duplicate famous holes from the Open Rota. The layout is quite good however the lush conditions are not Open-esque. It was breezy the day I played so I had a chance to work on my knock down shots but forget trying to land the ball short and run the ball onto the green, the ball sticks where it lands. There are no water hazards that I recall but there is high rough. I was pleased that I didn't lose a single ball but wayward shots can be in trouble. I rented a set of clubs and they were game improvement models from Callaway. They did the trick, shot 71 that day. I would like another crack at this course with my sticks.

Great course 15 minutes from strip
You can tell it's going to be a classy course when you have to let them know who you are before they even open the gate to enter the course. Fairways and greens are in great shape. Staff very helpful and friendly.... Will play there again.

Authentic windy day
All in all, I thought this was a fun course. I played on a very windy day so I wish I had my own clubs that have a lower trajectory. Despite that, the rental clubs were very good.
I practically had the course to myself from the first tee to holing out 18, so I played at a very quick pace. I really enjoyed my time, and I'd like to bring my own clubs next time so that I can hit lower shots.

A change from the typical desert courses in Vegas. Staff were overly friendly and once on the course we realized that they knew that we were in for a treat.
