Royal Scot Golf Course Clubhouse

Clubhouse and Amenities – Rating 6.22

The parking facilities at Royal Scot Golf Course, one of the best public golf courses in the Lansing area are excellent, boasting two spacious lots and a convenient self-serve bag drop. The golf clubhouse, while modest in size is in good shape and offers decent amenities that include a putting green and driving range. The carts and cart paths are of average quality.
Patrons can enjoy a diverse menu with plenty of food options and a fully stocked bar in the resturant which may become one of your favorite places. However, the selection of apparel is notably limited, and the range of golf equipment extends only to small items such as balls and tees. Customer Service is always top notch. Additionally, the complex appears larger thanks to the presence of a sizable bowling alley, catering to those who may be a league bowler but not avid golfers. Golf Lessons are available.
