Royal Manchester Golf Links
Excellent, Top Notch Course!!
This course is excellent. Played for the first time Aug. 9 which was a day after an Asian Tour event. The course was immaculate. The greens were very fast, the bunkers were nicely raked and the fairways were beautiful. You have to stay in the fairways because the rough is treacherous. It's not very long, but it's a nice challenge.

Great Course Great Price
Very nice course for a very affordable price! Needs a tee box between the whites (6300yds) and blues 6900yds

Greens need aireation.
Greens very hard. But excellent condition. Speed not excessively fast. , but don't get in situations with downhill putts. Fairways gorgeous and generous. Not a long course. Also not a course for risk-taking off tees. Hitting at the 150 markers works well. One exception was No. 14, where you want to keep well right of the marker because typography of hole takes balls hard left once they start bouncing and rolling. Definitely wear hat and sun protection. There is no shade on this true links course.

Great course for the money
Happened to get paired with one of the teaching pros. Between him and the course layout and upkeep it was a very enjoyable round. The course rewards accurate drives and good putting.

Interesting golf layout.
Even though it was not my first time to play, it had been a year & a half, it brought back fond memorries of past rounds. First time playing, I had birdies on
6 & 13 so naturally I fell in love with the track. It is a
course that you must think your way around & definately keep it in the middle if possible. I found the sand traps to be unforgiving due to the hard surface underneath & difficult to get under the ball.
Cost me several strokes in scoring. All told, it was
a very nice experience.

Best Course in Area
Royal Manchester is a fantastic golf course!
Be careful of the fast putting greens, yet putt very smooth and fair. The greens can be difficult to hold as they as hard.
The fairways are cut very short and are excellent. If you're not real familiar with the course it may be difficult to know where to hit the ball on dog legs and other blind shots.
Like all links course don't hit offline line or you will find very thick rough. The sand traps are the best I've played.
The two water holes are number 9 (par 5) and 18(par 4). Number 18 is a great finishing holes for aesthetics.
There are many water stops on the course for those who like to stay hydrated.
Did see a wild turkey(by himself for some reason)) on the course (number 17).
I'd come back here at any time.

Outstanding Links course
This was my first experience with Royal Manchester and I was amazed at the quality of the course and the condition and speed of the green. I did not have a tee time, but arrived and they paired me up right away. The driving range was excellent as was the practice putting greens. I live near the Poconos and am visiting the area with my wife at the Quilting expo in Hershey, but would drive here to play this course again with friends. If you are in the Hershey area...THIS IS A MUST PLAY!
