Royal Golf Club, is a Public, 18 hole golf course located in Slidell, Louisiana.
The Royal Golf Club golf course opened in 1969. The course was designed by Gerald Gatlin.
The front nine plays longer than the back nine. The greens are consistently well maintained, There are no sand bunkers anywhere on the course. Water hazards come into play on eight of the eighteen holes.
Don't miss to the left on hole #11, a 305-yard, par 4, which has water down the left side from the tee to green. The finishing hole is also quite memorable. This 540-yard, par 5, features a severe dogleg left fairway with a canal crossing through the fairway twice.
Par for the course is 72. From the back tees, the course plays to 6,655 yards. From the forward tees, the course measures 5,544 yards. The longest hole on the course is #18, a par-5 that plays to 540 yards. The shortest hole on the course is #7, a par-3 that plays to 150 yards from the back tees.
Watch out for #4, a 433 yard par-4 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole at Royal Golf Club is #15, a 165 yard par-3.

Many improvements in the course itself over the last few years. A well kept secret.

My old home course, the course has never been well maintained. The folks that hang around there are nice and everyone makes the best of it, but the course could be so much more with a little time and money. About 10-15 years ago they made some changes that improved the place somewhat, but not enough. There is no sand on the course. Mounding and drainage would help. Greens need to be upgraded to USGA standard - they are horrible when wet. Lots of dead areas due to too many trees and no agronomy to speak of. But, for a place to tee a ball up and go hit it at a cheap price, it's not bad.
