  • On August 1, 2016...Parks & Recreation Director Steve Pohlman just announced at the city council meeting that Royal Tee Golf Course has ceased operations and released their staff. 
  • The fairways are in pretty fair shape, but this course needs some money. They say they are working on the traps, but they are just bad. Perhaps some money and hard work can improve things. 
  • Basically, I had a good 9-hole round of golf. The Greens were mostly in good condition, and the place was due to the weather very wet. The operation in the shop was first "played friendly"and later his unfriendly. Here you could improve still strong.

  • I work there, and all the efforts that are being put in with the new management is very commendable, the work crew was entirely replaced and with all the efforts and care and concern of the new management will soon bring this course up to 5 star course if not better.... It's a process and joining this club and course now will be an investment once the course is brought up to it's potential and speed..... This course will be featured in future publication's and golf magazines as the best of the best, so take my suggestion as someone from the inside that your membership now will save you alot in the future.....
  • New management and Staff have made a Great difference! We think if you haven't been at RTGC in a while you'll be pleasantly surprised!
  • All around relaxing
  • I will be fair to this facility and also honest to the readers of this review... I've played this set of 3 - nine hole layouts (King, Queen, Prince) over the past 4 years when vacationing down here (my in-laws live in the gated community). In the past, the course has been immaculate but with brutally slow (nearly fairway speed!) greens. This spring/summer, the course undertook a major operation to replace all 27 greens and reshape/re-size/re-speed them. Stimps have gone from 6-8 to more traditional role speeds with the remodel. The efforts are coming along exceptionally. However, there have been some speed bumps. The Return of the Queen Queen was the first to be rebuilt and has nearly matured back into mid-season form. The green speeds are fantastic and the roles are fairly true. By far, this is the 9 you need to demand to play. It will require shot-making thought process through the loop after you get two early easy/wide holes. Kings Court The jury is still out on the king, as the second to be rebuilt. The greens still show quite a bit of sand and are still a little slow due to growing in. It was the second 9 in the rebuild process and its growth has been stunted by near record summer rains in SW Florida. The layout remains the same in most respects, and is probably the crowd favorite for being not too hard. Prince... or Princess? The prince has problems... MANY. First of all, the reconstruction was delayed multiple times due to the rain mentioned above, causing the re-opening to just occur apx two weeks ago. Due to this many flaws are apparent, as I feel it was reopened WAY too early. The greens are heavily sanded, causing your putts to be inaccurate and randomly stalled by the surface... not fair. The fairways and rough was constantly displaying a drab gray coat of dead mowing clippings/thatch due to it being mowed back down to size. Residents reported that the grass on some areas was 2-3x normal size (rough and tee boxes mainly). Thus, you end up with tee boxes that are all weeds, some that were made of so little grass/weeds that you were teeing up in a sand trap (imagine your feet twisting as you tried to hit a driver out of a sand trap.... same feeling), and one that was completely fresh sod that people are simply going to trample and destroy. This nine should not be opened for another few weeks so that it can mature. However, the course management feels otherwise. DO NOT PLAY THIS NINE if you can avoid it... or demand a discount to counter the sub-par conditions on it. Overall, this facility will recover and get back on its feet soon. I expect my visit in 2014 to reaffirm my faith in the operation after it has a year to mature. If the conditions of the greens on the Queen are indicative of the entire course's progress, the entire 27 will be back to a top tier course within a year. However, in the interim, use discretion before you play and be aware of what you may be getting into!
  • I have played most the courses in Cape Coral and Royal Tee is by far the best. The staff is very friendly and course plays great (even if I didn't!!).
