4.5 hr on a Saturday

While 4.5 hrs on a Saturday seems like a decent finish time the round could have been 15-30 minutes faster if Olivas would put out even just one marshal.
If you’re new to the course , be ready for some fun, ocean breeze , and a big wait at # 5 the first par 3.

Course in great shape for January. Love this course and staff ... please start a marshal program and you could increase play times by 20%.

Walked

S . l . o . w . . . p . l . a . y. . . . . . . . . !

Teed off at 1:15 and only finished 14 holes by 5 pm (dark). Too slow...too crowded...waiting to tee off on every hole and to to hit in every fairway and for every green...with a group behind us doing the same...staring us down...making the round uncomfortable... Not worth the aggravation. And a lot of players were quitting shortly after the turn...
