The rest of it I just wasted.

Reviews/Notes

Royal Links Golf Club is a compilation of holes from The Open Championship (British Open) venues.  They aren't exact replicas, as the holes at Royal Links are to have been inspired by the originals.  The holes come from Royal Lytham, Royal Troon, Prestwick, Royal Liverpool, St. Andrews, Royal Birckdale, Royal St. George's, Murfield, Royal Cinque Port, Turnberry, and Carnoustie.
 
I found myself a bit disappointed by the course.  I suppose it is because it is hard to re-create the ambiance of these holes (not that I've ever played any of them, though).  There were several holes that I found interesting but the course as a whole was not in the condition that I had seen from other reviewers.
 
As with so many British courses, you will find a lot of nasty little bunkers in the fairways and near the greens.  I found though that these never came into play on several holes.  Either my drive was clearly short of them, or clearly beyond.  Perhaps that is because the original holes play with or into a consistent wind.
 
The one aspect of the facility that I felt was above average was the clubhouse.  It was very authentic look and found it to be very quaint and comfortable, and just enjoyed the overall look of it.
