Occupying a 180-acre property, the course at Castle Royle Golf & Country Club was designed to USGA specification by Neil Coles in 1994.
Castle Royale promised so much, yet delivered very little. The exception to this were the putting surfaces that were some of the best I have played on.
The course was very boring, huge bunkers that were not actually that well placed in all honesty and the open, wide feel left little to the imagination.
Some of the course is starting to show signs of maturity as trees grow but in reality it is a very open, not very exciting layout. When you can see 5 or 6 flags from one tee box, you know it is going to be a forgiving layout.
I enjoyed my round here yet felt no impulse to return anytime soon.
Some of the best greens you'll ever putt on. The course is a bit American style with huge bunkers, water, and very wide holes. It is quite uninspiring in places, but worth playing just for the fast and smooth greens.
