Possessing a little something for everyone, Royal York is an extremely varied course with a good mix of challenges. It is described by some as “deceivingly difficult”, and the course has a reputation of being able to adapt to the individual play level of almost any golfer.
Novice and intermediate players should have few problems at Royal York, as long as they play within their abilities.
However, because the course has many possible short cuts to the green, better golfers may be enticed into taking chances in many places, with the appropriate rewards and/or punishments for those who take up the challenge.
One hole capable of always demanding a golfer’s best is Royal York’s long 6th. This 518 yard par five has a double dogleg and presents no direct or easy path to the green. The green itself is protected by a bunker to the front left and can be tricky to putt on due to its undulating surface.
