Wow. Just played the Royal after playing the Ocean a few days ago, just as good if not better! There are so many beautifully created holes, especially the par 3’s which are all over water (or a massive cliff) was so pleased to par the...More

We played here as part of the amateur tournament and had a great week. The course is amazing and the views are stunning - the 16th is terrifying! Can't wait to play it again next year!
