Same story every year with the royal and i am damn sick of it at this stage,there was no water in it from oct to march and now again at start of season ,even with water its next to impossible to pass with weed,sorry they were cutting two weeks ago when there was no weed! gggrrrrr really what can they guarantee besides taking your money,Funny though it was fine for the first two years when it opened so ye could all do the green and silver and they could sit back and give themselves a big pat on the back.,Am i been unjust ????
