The emphasis at Royal Oaks is not on distance, but rather focuses completely on hitting fairways and contoled play. Tee shots intimidate to the point of nervouse breakdown. Greens are stimpmetered at 13+. The only thing I would suggest is more elevation change. All the same, a beautiful course.
If you can get on, you should play this course. I was fortunate enough to be allowed to play (for free!) b/c of a friend in the area. Big fan of the large pine trees and picturesque landscaping.
Pros: Amaing scenery, Tour level course, Challenging
Cons: Private / expensive, Difficulty past many, Relatively flat
