My recent trip out to Royal Oaks was a great experience. This is a well designed, appropriately priced course that is clearly a couple steps above your average course. I especially love the angles of the approach shots and the undulations near the greens that can leave golfers with some challenging chips…or flops, when they fail to hit the green. Holes like #2, #4, #5, #7, #12 and #17 come to mind in particular. The course is a great mix of short interesting holes such as #2 and #16, along with a few long holes such as #4 and #14 that provide a constant variety throughout the round. This isn’t one of those courses with little variation that begins to feel stale after some time.

The greens are a little slower than I would have expected, but they rolled pretty true and were not overly beat up from play. The fairways are a little more mediocre. They’re bentgrass, but each time I have played there they have not seemed to be particularly plush and the lies are so-so. They’re certainly a long way from some of the other bentgrass gems such as Dauphin Highlands, Colonial or Iron Valley. I’m not even sure they’re as nice as Rich Valley, which also has bentgrass. I understand bentgrass is harder to maintain and I also realize Royal Oaks is not charging as much as some of the aforementioned courses, so that is why I’m not going to outright ding them, but I can’t give them four or five stars either. The tee boxes all seemed to be in pretty nice condition. Though I did not use them, it appeared the course had some nice practice facilities too.

I highly recommend Royal Oaks to all area golfers. This is truly one of the better courses for your money around this area.

This course sits across the road from the Lebanon Country Club so it has some stiff competition and, having played both, comparisons are inevitable. And so it goes, this course starts off impressive with a really challenging Par 5 that demands and accurate third shot to a small green. Then #2 is a shot Par 4 but with an interestingly huge waste area guarding the small green. So you have to be strategic and not hit it too far. Hole #3 is a challenging Par 3 and then a really nice Hole #4. These first four holes are in beautifully landscaped surroundings and you settle in a nice serene and "naturally aesthetic" round. And then the total disappointment, You move into an open area for #5, #6, #7 and #8 and a housing development with back yards right next to the fairways. Ruins the concept guys. The back nine, was done right, with some challenging dog legs and a big lake surrounding a difficult to hit Par 3 and equally hard Par 5. Nice surroundings and no houses. Please, please...either a golf course or a housing development. Which is it? After playing this place, I'm afraid it holds no candle to the monster across the street.
