Royal Links was built to honor the rich history and tradition of the game of golf. Designed by Dye International, this links-style course features holes inspired by eleven different British Open rotation courses, including the Road Hole and Hell Bunker from the Old Course at St. Andrews and the Postage Stamp from Royal Troon. Other courses in the loop include Carnoustie, Turnberry, Royal Liverpool, Prestwick, Royal Lytham, Muirfield and Royal Birkdale.Monuments were erected at various locations throughout the golf course indicating the spots where great moments in British Open history took place. A Champions Wall stands near the all-turf practice range honoring American champions of the British Open.

Golfers may choose to engage the services of a professional forecaddie adding to the "Scottish" experience. These forecaddies are knowledgeable about the history of each hole, as well the location of the 108 pot bunkers, some of which are hidden. Walking caddies are also available and are required for those who choose to walk.

Royal Links was recognized as the "Best Course in Las Vegas" in the 2006 Review Journal "Best Of Vegas" poll and one of "America's BEST Courses" by GolfWeek. Located less than 20 short minutes from the world-famous Las Vegas Strip, the castle-style clubhouse hosts a nationally recognized golf shop, which was ranked as one of "American's Best 100 Golf Shops" in 2004 & 2005 by GolfWorld Business. It is stocked with name brand apparel, equipment, quality art and collectables. The shop also offer rentals of the Callaway X2 HOT clubs and FootJoy shoes.

The clubhouse is also home to Stymie's Pub, an authentic re-creation of a British pub, serving traditional fare like fish and chips, bangers, as well as breakfasts, salads and sandwiches. An on-course beverage cart service is also available. An English style call box is available at the 9th tee, providing golfers the opportunity to order lunch as they make the turn, or to have the meal delivered to them on the course.

Adding some gaming excitement to the round, Royal Links offers a "Beat The Pro" challenge for all golfers who wish to test their skill against course personnel on a Par 3 "closest to the hole" contest for merchandise credit in the golf shop. Royal Links Golf Club is also features the ParMates program, a female caddy service that was designed to add a unique extra experience to your round of golf.

Royal links gives you the opportunity to play a number of holes inspired by famous links courses in the desert. If you choose the twilight rate the price is very fair. The course is in good condition and very recommendable. It is only 20 minutes from Las Vegas Boulevard.

I will say I enjoyed my time at the Royal Links. Had a great experience from the gentleman outside, the pro shop, and the bartenders. All where super friendly and nice for everything. I just don't get that in Colorado courses. Thanks I will be back on my next trip!!

Has a golf outing with a friend of mine. We had 4 courses lined up to play. This was the first and we were hyped based on all reviews we had seen. To be fair we played on arguably the hottest day of the year and the first day of Summer. It was 117 and that's a conservative estimate. It... More

Recently played Royal Links and have to say, it was a very average course and way over priced! I played golf last summer in Scotland and in no way was this course comparable to the MUCH more affordable course there. One annoying issue was there was literally NO sand in the bunkers, it was like hitting off concrete. Also, we... More

I typically shot around 90-100 at my local courses. I shot a 121 at this course. It is tough! Bunkers all over the place. And if your drive doesn't land in the fairway...good luck. Rangers are a bit aggressive on pace of play. Course is pretty cool. Just wish I could of enjoyed it a little more and not spent... More

It had been 15 years since last playing this course. During that time, they have dropped the forelady approach. Clubhouse and bag drop is very nice. Restaurant was OK but pricey. Course was in great shape for the middle of Winter; they had eliminated some of the deep heather, opening the course cup a little, but the fairways were very... More

The Royal Links Golf Club in Las Vegas, ( a Walters group) is one of the best and most interesting places to play golf , especially if you like links golf or want to fantasize about playing on one of the"old courses" in the world. This 18 hole course will cost you $99 to play. The service from the caddies... More

Think you've got game? Prove that theory here. One of the most consistent, flat out tough tracks I've ever had the delight to swing away at. Target points seem benign, but they're just not. Diabolical pot bunkers lurk everywhere - a linear dance of avoidance is supremely necessary. Two shot escapes may run as high as 1 in 3 (for... More
