Royal Manchester Golf Links
Wonderful course ruined
They might as well close. The greens have been destroyed by some sort of a disastrous chemical application. What a shame, because their greens were the best in the entire region---bar none Feel so bad for them..

What happened to the greens
this course is quickly becoming the best in all of York county. I'm sad to report the greens are in terrible horrendous condition. An the price does not reflect how poor they were. Burned up an diseased. Almost looks like someone put the wrong chemicals on them. Was even told by a member they are closing the course down because of the problem. Fairways an tee boxes where great. Ruff is thinner now so you can find stray tee shots an approach to the greens shots. Wish I would have been warned about how bad the greens were. Had a friend in from out of town an really bragged the course up to him.

All greens dead.
All greens were completely damaged. No grass at all on greens. Only dirt. Course told us the greens were killed by application of chemicals that were recalled. Course will have to completely replace all greens including practice putting green. I like this course and will play again after greens have been replaced.

Great Course and Great Value
Golf course was just two weeks away from being perfect. Coming out of aerification and greens were still coming in. Excellent staff and rough we thick.

I've played here several times and will return. This was the slowest round I've played here at 4 hrs 45 mins. Has always been in great condition. I hope the pace of play was a fluke

Good course to play!
I enjoyed my round here. They recently aerated the greens (3 weeks ago) and the holes were still visibly and the greens were a little bumpy but other than that it was good. I'm not a huge fan of links style golf but I would definitely play this course again.

Give it two more weeks!
Greens were rough. Still aerated hole everywhere. Good layout on front nine but back is pretty crammed. Both 9 have great finishing holes The course is short from the whites.
