I got a recommedation to play this course through the Mandalay Bay Concierge in Las Vegas. Apparently they get discounted rates with this particular golf course and its 2 other sister courses (Bali Hai and Desert Pines). I decided to go with Royal Links. Upon my arrival, we had to go through these huge iron gates and then got dropped off at the clubhouse, which by the way, is an actual Scottish Castle! The staff was very friendly and more than accomodating to my needs. Ask for Nacho, by far the best Bartender/Server I have ever encountered at a Clubhouse restaurant ever! Now for the course. If you've ever watched the British Open, you should be familiar with their signature holes. By far my Favorite is the Par 3 Postage Stamp. Only because to the left of the green, is this deep, deep bunker. Standing in it, I couldn't even see over the top of the bunker. They also have a replica of the ""Road"" hole from St. Andrews, minus the buildings surrounding it. I also enjoyed the rolling fairways and challenging greens.

Best part about it is....There are no water hazards! I don't know about you, but for some reason, water really messes with my game mentally...I can keep going on and on about this place, but if you can't afford to play in Scotland, play the Royal Links in Las Vegas. I am definitely going to go back there each time I visit. I'm having withdrawals now just thinking about it. :)

What a unique golf experience. Royal Links was a real treat to play. Just 15-20 minutes from the Strip and I felt like I was in Scotland playing golf. The holes were amazing and the greens were perfect. The fairways were like hitting off carpet. For what I paid, it would have cost me thousands of dollars to play some of these courses where these holes were designed in Scotland. Great overall experience.

If you love the game of golf, this is a must-play course!! This course will test every club in your bag. The course was in amazing condition when we played on March 18, 2010. For those of you not familiar with Royal Links it is a collection of the best holes of the British Open rotation courses, and that it is! It has golf's most famous holes - ""The Road Hole"", ""Hell Bunker"" and ""The Postage Stamp"" to name a few! This course was awesome! Highly recommended! I look forward to playing it again soon!

Royal Links isn't the fanciest course but it does have some challenging holes. A good place to practice your long irons.

What a great concept...all the most memorable holes from the rotation of British Open courses in one 18 hole set-up! My buddy and I started of the afternoon having a great lunch at the club house. We were on the first hole in the early afternoon and were really happy with the set up, pace of play and the maintenance of the course. Why go to Scotland and play in the wind, rain and cold when you can play the Road Hole in sunny Las Vegas?!?!?

super rip off. SANDY greens. interesting holes-but not suprising since they are based on other known holes. course conditions mediocre. staff professional, clubhouse nice. but in general they should be ASHAMED to charge this much given the course conditions.

\nInteresting change of pace for golfers that would like to experience links style golf. Has several memorable holes including a replica of the St Andrews ""Road Hole"" (#17).\n\nVery expensive course with mandatory caddy (even if you get a cart as well) so expect to pay $300+ for a round. Cheaper than flying to Scotland I suppose....\n\nConditioning of greens and fairways is below what one would expect for this type of outlay.\n\nSeveral of the par 4's are particularly challenging and they are mixed well with short par fours that are practically driveable.\n\nGood day out --- but pricey. I'd rate it in the top 5 of places in Vegas to play.\n\n\n\n

The Course
This may just be the closest you ever get to play the holes of the British Open without joining the PGA Tour. Unless, of course, you gain membership and tee it up at the old course at St. Andrews, manage to play Royal…
