    Excellent course, great price
    I played at RSC in March 2020 and paid $42 thru Golfnow. Having played at other popular courses in the Kissimmee area at over double the price, RSC was by far the best course, hands down. Many of the other courses were so badly damaged and hardly maintained. At RSC, the tees, fairways and green were immaculate. The greens rolled true and in beautiful condition. I really enjoyed the round, with beautiful scenary, course layout and friendly staff. Next time, I would play all 3 courses. Great job RSC!

    Great condition Course
    Played there last weekend , was looking for a course that was good but not charging the extremely high prices that are common in Florida at the moment. We have played a couple of courses that were good value in that they were cheap but were not even worth the low price. Royal St Cloud was an absolute delight great condition fairways and greens

    Golf Course fine, staff extremely helpful and very friendly
    We arrived at Royal St Cloud Golf Links just after 8.30am on Tuesday morning 28th January, and could immediately see just what similarities there were between here and a traditional British golf Links, the wind was blowing and it was cold, members and staff resplendent in down jackets and bobble hats, not your typical Florida scene. The course is set up as three loops of nine, and it does by its very nature lead to a potentially disjointed game. We started on the Blue nine, and were due to play the White nine second, half way round the starter changed us to the Red nine, and I can only say he did us a massive favour, we bypassed a longish queue waiting to start the White nine and our game manage to continue without too much interruption, we skipped round the second nine in under two hours, even though we had never seen the layout before. Any course you haven’t played before is always going to pose challenges, but St Cloud does give you a fighting chance, there are no lakes hidden behind banks, massive deep bunkers located just over a mound and therefore out of sight. Keep the ball in play and you will return a decent card. We enjoyed the experience, in spite of the wind and cold, if we had more time I would certainly like to give the course another try, and at $49 plus tax it represents excellent value for money

Been wanting to try this course for some time. Honestly, we were a bit disappointed. None of the 4 of us consider it to be a real "links" style course. There are very few trees, yes, but that's about as "links" style as it gets. Conditions were very good. Course is well-maintained. Greens are smooth and fairly quick. One true "pot" bunker on the first hole of the blue course. The rest were traps and bunkers you will see on any other course. No shaved areas around the greens where you might use your putter instead of a wedge. There really isn't a memorable or signature hole that I could see. They're all pretty much the same. We played 15 holes before the lightning drove us off the course. I'd play there again; but I would go out of my way.

Play it each trip and it rains at some point in our rounds. But we keep coming back. Pro Shop staff refreshing and friendly and make you feel welcome. Course in very good condition. Restaurant closing as we entered. Disappointed, but they refered us to another good location.

A nice course, but as previously mentioned it has pretty slow play. Ranger asked group ahead to speed up. But no follow-up and ended up just shy of 5 hours for no reason. Carts in rough shape. The greens were true, but very hard and lighting fast which slowed play.

The course itself is in excellent condition and a unique challenge. Slowing the greens, disciplined rangers would make all the difference in the world to make this place perfect. If you prepare for slow play, you will love the course.

Played here over the New Years weekend with my 12 yr old son. What a great place. We loved it. The staff is friendly, nice clubhouse, course is very well maintained, unique and fun to play. The greens were smooth and fast, fairways were perfect. We played the white - blue 9’s and it feels like a true links style course.
I can’t imagine a better value in the area. Was about $80 for my son and I to play 18. The only thing I could say negative is it was a pretty slow start. Took a while to get through the first 5 holes or so but sped up considerably after that. But it was a beautiful day and I was with my son so I was kind glad it was a little slow. Took about 4:45 for 18 but I imagine this was probably one of the busiest times of the year for them. We will definitely be back when we are in the area again. It was a great day and great memories with my son.

A warm welcome greeted our party of six from Scotland which helped to make the golfing experience really special . We enjoyed a mix of the three nines on a well maintained course with greens of very good quality. A real treat for anyone visiting the area

This is a nice golf course, especially for the money.

However, the golf carts are terrible and not maintained well.

The worst part is that the carts do not have wind screens. Of course we ended up getting soaked during two isolated storms.

Since it’s a links course, there are not many options to shelter and the windshield would have helped at least a little.

Was told by management that they won’t get windscreens because they want to keep costs down.

Penny wise and dollar foolish.

The course caters to the locals and if you stop at the 19th hole, you’re likely to experience loud and obnoxious golf groups.
