Walked the Blues (6530-71.6-127) on Monday 3/27/2017 with my buddy Mack and his buddies Ricki and Brian. POP was 5 hours on a ridiculous windy 25-35 mph gusty day. Wind was so bad had a 60 yd chip in on #7 and on #9 was green high on the left just left of the cart path–our group was putting on #3 and the Buena boys high school team from the white tees on #3 hit a drive 3 feet from the pin–all 4 of us stared at each other, looked back at the tee and laughed–it was a minimum 3 club into the wind difference. Downwind holes fun–upwind holes hang on.
Great staff and practice areas at Olivas–paid $18.49 on a promo teeoff.com deal.
The greens were in very nice shape–super soft on chips and irons and putting medium speed. The only rock hard green on the course is #16. Fixed a couple extra ballmarks from the 3some ahead of us that cut in front of us on #10. Greens are in real nice shape. Rated 7.5/10
Fairways are in good shape–they have pretty much dried up from the rains. They are semi-lush, mostly green and we saw a lot of white GiR circles in the fairways and chipping areas. Rated 7/10
The tees are in very nice shape–very lush teeing grounds, mostly level rated 8/10
Was not in any bunkers but they looked to be in great shape- raked with thicker white beach stuff. The rough is nice and lush lining the fairways. Fairway rough rating 8/10. If you get in the deep stuff beyond the cartpath its waist high US Open stuff–probably a lost ball
I love this course–recommended.
