What a course and unlike any you will play in Las Vegas or any other locale in the USA. True links challenge with great service and ambiance. My wife and I enjoyed it and she even won a prize on the Postage Stamp hole. If you are going to pay a lot for golf then in my opinion it should be a unique experience and Royal Links does this to the limit. Even if you are a high handicap, the visual layout and challenge of the course makes you a better golfer. Get there early though so as to practice out of the huge bunkers you may encounter on the course.

Let me say this golf course is beautiful. The design is challenging enough even for an advanced golfer yet forgiving enough for even us hackers and kept in excellent condition. I would recommend anyone take the time to play this course for the golf alone let alone the service. For me it was a good round despite leaving my beloved 4 wood somewhere in a fairway on the back 9. I was unable to find her before having to leave back to my hotel and frankly I was devastated as she was my best club in the bag. I thought for sure my beloved 4 wood would be gone forever yet my story has a happy ending. Not only did they find my club but one "Mr. Cabbage" actually drove the club to my hotel on the strip and left it at the bell desk for me! He called to let me know he was dropping her off and needless to say I was thrilled. I was blown away they were willing to do this for me and in turn I would certainly recommend this course or any they own or manage. These guys maintain a great course, took great care of us while we were golfing AND went above and beyond by actually driving my club out to the hotel the day we were leaving! Kudos to Royal Links...where the customer is royalty!!!!!!!!!!!

This is the closest I have found to a true links experience in the US. Playing in February the fairways were brown and the ground dry and firm. This is the way it is in Scotland. Love it. The holes also had the look and feel of Scotland The only other course I have found that is links-like is the Dye Links course at the PGA Village, Ft Pierce, Fl. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Taxi from the strip was $30 out and $40 return.

It is a realy nice course but if you go in the rough good luck finding your ball. The over all course is beautiful. The holes are recreations of 18 holes from the British open courses. Even though I lost a lot of ball I would play it again it is worth it.
