Bring your "A" game and course-management skills to Royal Oaks in Moncton, New Brunswick. I consider myself lucky to have carded a 107 yesterday.
At one point I carded five "sevens" -- everything from double to quad bogies -- in a row. Notwithstanding this sorry fact, I definitely recommend a round at this Canadian Maritime gem. As a "deal" or "value for your money," this course ranks up there with Kananaskis outside Calgary, Alberta. Although the course is inland, it very much looks and plays like a links course. The course is very well-designed and maintained with carpet-like fairways and greens.
Green fees of $65.00 -- what's that, about $ 22.50 (USD)? -- make Royal Oaks a "must play" when in Moncton.
