Royal American Links
Course very exciting
Course is very exciting but little bit simple. But I would like to recommend to my friend later.

Fun golf for every type of player
Royal American has a lot of fun holes to play for every type of game. Whether you hit driver off the tee or irons you can make your way around the course and find a way to score. Has a great mix of scoring holes and holes that make you want to break all the clubs in your bag

Only reason for low rating is the time of year and with a few tee boxes closed $30.00 is WAY to much. A few of the tee boxes were closed and a few were in bad shape. Other than that course was in good condition for the time of year.

In good shape and a great deal for $29 on Golfnow.
Fun course with nicely maintained fairways and greens. Has a few target type par 4's that are not too long but also has some over 400 yds . A few of the par 5's are reachable . Overall a great course

This course combines easy holes with some difficult ones. In midseason it's usually kept in pretty good shape.
Overall, it's a pretty good public course. However, a bit pricey for the number of choices in central Ohio. It's well worth playing if you have never done so and a bit off the beaten path. But the clubhouse and facilities are nice.

Great conditions for late fall
I played this weekend and the course was pretty open due to being 40 degrees. Greens were fast, pace of play was great. A good mix of challenging and scoring holes. Will definitley play again

I played Royal American for my first time on the second weekend in October. I got a great deal on the greens fees through GolfNow and had a great experience overall. We could tell that the greens had already been aerated but they were done so well and must have had been long enough ago that it wasn't a problem at all. In fact, the greens ran really well and were very fast. I play a lot of courses around Central Ohio and I play about 30-40 rounds per year and I can say with the utmost confidence that these were some of the best greens I've seen on a public golf course ever. These greens would rival the greens of private courses I've played too. The layout was really interesting and there are plenty of challenging holes. My only negative experience had nothing to do with the actual course but instead was the slow service in the grill room. Apparently someone had called off that day but that doesn't explain why it took 15-20 minutes at the turn for my foursome to get a brat and some beers. Oh well, I'll definitely be back. Awesome course!

Not worth it due to terrible pace of play
As I walked to the pro shop, I encountered a fellow golfer who had just finished his round,and who was very unhappy about the pace of play. We started at 3:00 and had to literally wait 4-5 minutes after finishing each hole--and sometimes even longer before teeing off. There were frequently two groups ahead of us waiting to tee off on a given hole. This can be controlled by how many people you send out within a given time frame. It was obvious that Royal American was more interested in making money than it was in providing an enjoyable experience. Needless to say, we were unable to finish our round due to darkness (and trust me, we tried). Needless to say, I will not be a repeat customer to Royal American.

A great links style set up.
royal American is one of the best values in the Columbus area. I played for $25 including cart on a Friday afternoon.

Awesome in the fall with the trees and foliage. Course was wet after a rainy night. Fog rolled through but was awesome. Friendly staff. great course.

Disappointed! Course needs TLC
I love the layout of this course and have played there numerous times over the last several years. But my last round was a little disappointing. The fairways were okay, but the tee boxes and greens were not what I'm accustomed to at Royal American. Definitely not worth the $55 greens fee. Therefore, I would not recommend this course right now. For $25, yes. $55 or $60, no way.

Must be Accurate
The course had wet conditions which actully helped my game. I tend to hit long, which allowed me to place the ball with little run. I really enjoy this course and can be challenging with all the hazards.
