I was booked as a single for the east course but the three some I was to be put with were a no show. With that said they sent me to the west private course. Was fantastic. Would pay to play that one again was worth the cost and if the public one is half as nice well worth it as well.

I have played Royce Brook several times over the years and I was always impressed by the the quality. That ends today for me. I remember that the golf carts used to have screen with yardage distances and course hazards identified. This is NOT the case anymore. All of the greens are surrounded by sand traps and almost ALL of these hazrds have NO sand but are dirt and mud. I had 3 triple bogies for my final score of 90 due to this nonsense. simply unplayable. It was revealed that new management didn't share the need to invest in sand. This is a BIG mistake. Stay away.

It was cart path only due to tremendous rains the past few days, but the course felt pretty dry. Greens were a little slower than normal, but still a challenge.

We teed off behind a golf outing and waited every shot all day! 5 1/2 hour round on a week day! Terrible! Royce Brook should not have people playing behind outings this is the 2nd time in 3 years this has happened to me! I really enjoy the course and am playing in an outing for the Hillsborough fire dept on Monday June 10th but probably will not play there the rest of the year! Very disappointing!

I’ve played more than a handful of rounds here. Enough variance in time and day to feel confident that the pace of play is always slow here.

What makes it worse is the total absence of rangers. Slow play being one thing. But entire foursomes in the woods looking for someone’s 7th shot is unacceptable at this price point.

It’s a challenging course with decent enough conditions. But to drive that far and pay this much to clock in just shy of 5 hours with a 7am handle tee time is no bueno.

I played the East course today, a course I've played many times. I was injured last year and did not play golf so this was my first visit to the East Course in 2 years. It was immediately apparent to me that the bunkers on the course were very limited in sand, and mostly very hard and thin, making bunker play difficult to impossible. To be fair and honest they became worse and more numerous as we proceeded around the 18 holes. I told my playing partner that something must be said to the staff when our round was finished. So as promised I went into the pro shop to let the staff know how poor the conditions were to which Elsie said "yes, they've been that way for quite some time" ... now this course charges in and around $100 for a round of golf. I have enjoyed many rounds there in the past and accept the cost as being worthwhile, but for them to acknowledge poor conditions, and to admit they've been that way for some time is not being considerate to your customers. I would NEVER pay $100 to play there until the bunkers were all maintained properly! And in my opinion it will take a lot of work to make that happen. Very disappointed!

Very slow play here but a nice course.

The FunGolf golf app works better then there own app.

A yardage book or course map would be great. I’d pay $20 for one if they were available.

The staff and store are great. The burger and coffee delicious. I love the short game practice. I don’t like the driving range with plastic floor. Impossible to adjust tee height and very windy.

Pace of play was very slow.

Took 5:30 to finish 18holes on a Saturday. Most of the time waiting.

This is the third time I’ve played this course. I played this course a number of years ago and thought it was a pretty nice track. I just got home from playing the course today April 18, 2019.

The round took us (5 hours and 10 minutes), yes, I said 5 hours and 10 minutes ,on a Thursday and we teed off at 1 PM.

There was no ranger to be found. The groups in front of us were so slow, it was like dying a slow death. At the turn I asked the “ranger“ if they could send somebody out to move the groups along. He said we do not send the Ranger out during the week, only on the weekend.

I will never never never never never play this course again. Every hole we waited 10 minutes. That is complete B.S. !

the course was wide open in front of these two groups. I was shocked at the poor conditions of the course. The bunkers look like they have not been touched since 2017. It’s a shame because this course a number of years ago was pretty decent. Today was the last day this course will see me taking money out of my pocket to give them. I felt bad because I invited some buddies to play this course and I told them it was a nice course. We drove an hour to get to the course too. If it was closer to my house, I would’ve walked off and got a teetime somewhere else after the fifth hole.

Royce Brook is Crap !

Save your money,

I had a good group of guys in my foursome and the weather was very nice.

That’s where it ends.

No excuse, just laziness to not go out and ask them to pick up the pace. After the second warning, you move them to another hole.

Terrible experience

Royce Brook is our home course. Or at least that's what I tell myself because it has everything you could want especially for the price. Often we pay the same at other courses and there's no water on the course, no beverage cart, and some part of the conditions are off. Not at Royce Brook. Tee boxes, fairways and greens are always in much better than average shape, all amenities firing and plenty of staff to make your day go smoothly. Sunday was packed and we played in just over 4 hrs. Hughly recommend.
