Like a second class golfer this is your place. The attitudede demeanor and class of the gentlemen working behind the counter is what I would expect in a third world country. Sad, when the staff has to propel their own egos at the expense of...More

This course lacks a club house, but it is still a great way to spend an afternoon. Interesting course and not too difficult.

This isn't really a links course by Scottish or Irish standards but it still is a nice and challenging course. My Mom and I come here regularly for a tournament. We'll be here again next week.

This is the twin to Beaunaventura and a longer and more challenging course. You even get to see the ocean on a hole or two. This is also a fun and beautiful course for less than $50. Play early to avoid the winds from the...More

I played Olivas back in early 2002 and with it being an old farm it was hard to pick out what was fairway and what was pasture. The new design is challenging, long par 3's and nice greens. Green speed wasn't terrible slow but average...More
