Royal East is billed as a premium golf experience and generally lives up to its reputation. Regretfully the winter conditioning is below the standard expected of a Top 10 course. The tee boxes are poor, and the greens not what you would expect at Royal. In addition, the service and time taken at the halfway house needs immediate attention. Maintaining all conditioning and facilities ratings should be a priority for Royal East given its high ranking, and our group was left disappointed.
