In great condition

The greens are fast and tricky and fairways just slightly brown in places but no bare patches or cracks. For m just too many bunkers

Kevin

First time playing the course. Really enjoyed the challenge, weather was not so kind making a few of the holes very long as we were off the whites. Could do with a few more bunkers......not. The 18th is a stunning finishing hole all par 3's are tough. Great day

Great Bunkers

There are a lot of strategically placed bunkers on this course so your bunker play will probably get a good workout. Facilities here are 1st class with excellent practice facilities and clubhouse.

Superb Castle Royle!

Played Castle Royle yesterday as part of a society day. Teed off mid-morning, slightly overcast but dead still with no wind. Greens quick and true to begin with, but as the day warmed up and the sun came out, they got really quick and were an absolute pleasure to play on, despite the potential to make you look silly at times. Bunkering excellent on this course, lots of them and strategically placed to make you think your way round. Not a bomber's course at all, only two drivers hit all day as 3-wood or long iron for position made much more sense. Tee boxes excellent, fairways good despite the lack of rain over the past few months. Would happily play this course every week!

Great course, well designed with superb greens! Also has great practice facilities. Plays a little bit like a links course, with fast undulating greens, open and windy.

The experience is slightly pro tour with lots of bunkers, 6800 yds and the need to hit high soft landing long irons and rescues. Pack a 5 wood if you play there. Some of the entrances to greens are tiny yet there is huge space for an errant drive. Essentially its a rip it with a driver course requiring very little shape or control off the tee. Early greens have steep slopes that make you wary despite being a pretty flat course. Greens were very good in July 14.
