Back nine deal for 25 bucks

This is my regular course and maybe should have known better than to play on fathers day as typically there is a lot of one time golfers for the year that go out on Fathers day or Thursday of Thanksgiving.

However, with the 25 bucks for back nine my brother and I signed up with an early morning tee time only to find utter chaos on the 10th tee box (a six-some and a threesome) and asked the starter if they were going to call names or what was the order...?
Reply- "no order just go wait in line."
The six-some let us go in front of them, the 3some was paint drying slow, pace of play needs to be monitored and then enforced!!
seriously, 4and 5 practice swings to only hit a 30 yard shank is too much to watch every shot for every hole!

Great shape and a challenge

Olivas is in great shape right now and the greens are fairly smooth and fast.

Pace is very good. A great place to play with challenging pins and great layout.

Walkable and Fun Upscale Public Links Course

Nice playable, fair, yet challenging enough track with multiple sets of tees. Very good fairway conditioning, and greens are coming along rapidly after aeration 10-11 days ago. In another week or two they will be outstanding.

The course is very walkable, I highly recommend it since sometimes the carts can be on the older and bit more rundown side.

The driving range is ‘hit off grass’ on the weekends, a plus in my book. 4/5 and recommended.

Great layout but need maintenance

They changed layout a lot. Very challenging. But need little better maintenance. If the wind picks up it would be very difficult golf course. For the first timer, it’s hard to aim fairways from tee because it’s flat and wide open. Once aeration is done, green Weill be nice. I love this course.

Good value

Always enjoy the course.
Pace of play would be helped with a marshal.
Food/beverage service is terrible.

Morning back 9 is a great value

The layout and conditions are excellent. Played the 7 am back 9 in 90 minutes on a Sunday and loved it.
Club up one for the heavy air that early in the morning.
