WO RLD O F G O LF

The world of golf at Royal Oaks Country Club began in 2000 when former World Number One and Masters Champion Fred Couples broke ground with Brian Curley to design and create the Fred Couples Signature Golf Course. This par 72, 7,007-yard course boasts pristine conditions with fast green's speed year-round. Hole #16 is a Club favorite and has become Royal Oaks Country Club’s signature hole with waterfalls and lush greenery. This short par 3 is challenging due to a forced carry and a green that angles away from the tee box. As a perfect host for both intense competition and relaxing camaraderie, the Fred Couples Signature Golf Course encourages play for all skill levels and ages. Surrounded by eight water features to include waterfalls, 180,000-square-feet of bunkers, multi-tiered greens and undulating fairways, this course offers 10 sets of tee boxes, including dedicated tee boxes for juniors. Royal Oaks Country Club believes that the future of golf starts with our youth and here at Royal Oaks Country Club we take pride in the program we’ve developed to strengthen junior and family play.

Our PGA golf professionals come from all over the world and are here to help you grow your game through unrivaled lessons, clinics and academies catered to individual’s needs.
