This course plays a lot longer than the 7000 yards it actually measures. It seems like every hole had the wind blowing against us. There are also no straight holes. Challenging doglegs and lots of water makes this beautiful course play really long. It is long off the tee on virtually every hole (even the par 3's). One of the things I liked about the course was that sometimes the challenge was off the tee, sometimes the challenge was in the approach, and the greens are very fast with good undulation. Overall, a very challenging but fun course.

Got to play this one with a course rater from Golf Digest. It will work you particulary from the back. We both think Freddie Couples designed a good one. Home of a Mid Am this year. Doubt I could ever justify the 50,000+ initiation, rather hang out on the River Oaks or Houston CC wait list, if I'm going to see and be seen. Dang fine use of an old airport. If you are a walker pass on this one. Facilities are nice, enjoyed lunch. Go if you can.

Every hole a challenge.

Only had a chance to play it once, the wind was horrendous, but it may be one of the most unique courses. I don't remember a single straight forward hole. There truly is something special about every hole on the course. Scenery, water, fairway slope, doglegs, traps, islands, challenging club selection (& one windy day) made each hole an interesting challenge. I am used to courses which have a couple of "signature" holes, and certainly Royal Oaks does, but erery hole truly gives you something special to think about. It would play just as well on a more normal calm day. A great layout! I hope to try it again someday.
