Played 6/24 with the GK Gurus. POP around 4:15

Not a whole lot to add from previous reviews...

The course was, in general, in very good to great shape. The highlight of the round was playing a course with ample sand in their bunkers which has not been the case in the area since they’re largely ignored because of Covid restrictions.

The tees, fairways, and greens were all very good. Some fairways were being resodded, but only in places you should never find yourself, so no downmarks from me for it. The greens ran very smooth but were a touch slower than they looked. The rough was healthy, with a few bare spots of most of the holes, usually near the cart path.

Overall a good day, friendly staff, and great people.

Played 5/2 at 10 am. POP 4:10.

The course is in very good to great shape all around outside of very inconsistent bunkers.

Greens were smooth and rolled true at medium/slow pace.

Fairways were very healthy outside of a few spots on 2/3 holes which were sand on dirt.

Rough was not too long but it was very thick and could be tricky to hit out of.

Tee boxes were all great.

It was a good first trip to MS, had heard good things about the players course and though it was interesting layout and a good test of golf for what must have been a very flat piece of land.

Played today with a friend and paired up with a couple local high schoolers who were good players. POP 6:15 because we were stuck behind a some drunk idiots who fell a couple holes behind (not a convenient course to pass a group).

Course conditions were very good. Tee boxes were level and had very good coverage.

Fairways were very nice to hit from and didn’t find any particularly thin areas.

Rough was healthy and not too long. Just hard enough to be penal.

Greens were very smooth with little evidence of the punching done but were SLOW. Had to hammer putts to get them to the hole.

Bunkers were well stocked and nice to hit out of even without rakes.

Played with the GK gurus on 2/12.

It’s hard to add a lot to the previous reviews.

It was my first trip to OQ and had heard so many great things about it and it lived up to the hype.

I was impressed with how much cushion I found in the fairways despite their appearance leading me to think they would be very thin.

The greens were in very good shape. Ball rolled very well. They were quite hard which had to be accounted for when hitting into them, so much so that ball marks were sparse and was tough to make one.

It was worth the drive and I’ll be looking forward to playing this beautiful course again.

Played on 10/5 at 7:20 am. POP 4:20

I was a little hesitant to play after reading the prior review but must say it is patently false. Is this a pristine course? No. But it was nothing like the previous reviewer reported.

The tees were mostly level with good coverage. Par 3 tees had been shuffled around to keep good grass available.

The fairways had good coverage. They were thin in spots and outside of some small isolated areas were wonderful to hit off of.

The rough was thick in spots, the locals warned us they hadn’t been trimmed in a while and would be tough.

The greens were borderline excellent. A pleasure to putt on, rolling true and medium/fast consistently throughout the round.

The customer service was good as the pro shop and restaurant staff were great.

Will definitely be playing here more even if it’s just for the greens.

Played 8/25 at 2:30 pm. POP 4:30.

Usually really enjoy trips out to Olivas despite the longer drive. Today, there was no links in Olivas.

The tee boxes were in good shape and were level, no problems here.

The fairways were long and wet. It made the course play much longer than normal and largely removed the ground game because of how soft they were.

The greens are usually the highlight of this course. Today they were also very soft. Because of the softness they were much slower than usual and many had significant ball mark damage and some had been had portions of them aerated. Very disappointed in the quality of the greens night now.

The bunkers were well stocked and could leave you with a tough lie if you came in too steep.

The rough was minimal but thick, very healthy.

Played 8/6 at 9 am with USCDodger. POP 3 hours.

I came away from this round extremely impressed with the course all around.

The tee boxes were all healthy and level.

The fairways were very good to great and had only a couple very isolated areas that needed some attention. They provided some good cushion which made hitting the ball great but took some roll off the drives.

The rough was thick but not overly penal. Was consistent in areas near the fairways but was a bit spottier once you got away from the fairway.

The sand was well stocked and was fine.

The greens were the highlight of the course. They were big, undulating, smooth, and fast. They held shots very well. Downhillers were a nightmare.

Service was excellent and allowed us to tee off a little early and were friendly.

Played 7/30 at 6:45 am POP a shade under 4 hours.

Teed off with Nick, Vince, and Steve in overcast conditions, cleared up around 10 am.

The course was demanding off the tee with little room to miss on either side, and was, overall, was in very nice shape from tee to green.

Tee boxes were all level, had great coverage, and minimal divot damage.

The kikuyu fairways were very healthy and had really nice surfaces to play off of. The healthy kikuyu of course doesn’t provide much roll out which makes the course play a bit longer than the yardage.

The rough was healthy and thick. It wasn’t long enough to ruin a decent tee shot but still made to think about how it would affect your shot.

The greens were generally very good. It was a damp morning so the greens sped up a touch as we made it through our round and they dried off a bit. The ran very smoothly and were not quite as quick as the looked. There were a few spots of unrepaired pitch marks but were pretty isolated.

I did not find myself in any bunkers but saw some very well hit shots out of them today by my playing partners.

Saw the marshalls a few times who were friendly and the beverage cart making rounds about 10 am.

The service in the restaurant after the round was great and the food was very good too.

Played in the gk cup team match play outing 7/28 with Johnny, Mattias, and Evan. Was a great group to play with.

Overall, I was very impressed with the conditions and layout. The conditions were above to well above average in most facets, it’s clear the management is putting their resources into improving the course.

The greens and surrounds were the highlight of the course. The greens were quick and rolled well. Evan did a great job of fixing as many pitch marks as he could since there were quite a few out there. The surrounds were well maintained and provided good lies which meant you had options for trying to get the ball close to the hole.

The fairways and rough were also good to very good. Sure, there was a little browning in spots, but the grass was just brown, not dead, so they were fine to hit off of. There were a few wet spots.

Many of the bunkers had very new sand which will be nice in a few months once it settles, but was a brute to get out of since it was so fluffy ( I was not in any but this was the consensus of the group).

The biggest area in need of improvement were the tee boxes. Especially on the par 3’s they were pretty chewed up, were put in funky spots to avoid previously used spots but that lead to uneven and sometimes downhill lies on the box.

Service was excellent from check in, club cleaning taking me to my car and taking the cart back, and in the restaurant.

Made the double loop on 7/23 at 8:30 am. 4:14 POP

The highlight here was the greens. They were the qucikest (medium fast) and smoothest I’ve seen them in years. They played pretty firm, and held well struck shots well.

The fairways had good to very good coverage and were a pleasure to hit from.

The rough looked like it hasn’t but cut in weeks in some areas. In sports it was typical 2-3 inches but in others was closing in on 9-12 inches and was a brute to hit out of. Had a playing partner lose a ball because we couldn’t find it left of 7th hole.

Tee boxes were level with good coverage as the move the par 3 tees around quite often.

Always think the layout here is a bit more interesting than Given credit for and peovides a good golfing experience despite no range.

Played 7/15 at noon. POP 4:45. Course is in as good of shape as it’s been in a while.

Tee boxes were pretty good outside of the par 3s which were pretty chewed up and could use some rotation.

Fairways were good to very good throughout with a few exceptions that were pretty limited in size.

Rough was thick in spots, thin in some, and dirt in others.

Greens have been consistently healthy and rolled very well since they recovered from the most recent punching. They’re finally a bit quicker than they were past few months. Still not fast but not crazy slow at this point.

Had a great time playing in the GK outing.

The short version: the conditions throughout the course were very good to excellent in all facets.

The long(er) version: arrived a little early to check out the course and facilities. The clubhouse and restaurant were both very nice. Made my way over to the putting green near the first tee and it was rolling very nice. There was a bit of rain in the hour leading up to our tee time so it wasn’t all that quick, but the speed on the greens steadily picked up throughout the day. The rain softened up the greens a bit which made them very receptive to shots with most clubs and were rolling true.

The tee boxes and fairways were excellent to hit from. We ran into a few soggy areas in the fairways but with the unexpected rain it’s not a surprise.

The rough wasn’t terribly thick but it was a challenge to advance the ball with linger clubs and made club selection crucial from the rough.

I didn’t find myself in any bunkers so I can’t comment from personal play but my playing partners all said they were well stocked and after they dried a bit from the rain were very nice to hit from.

Overall the course provided a lot of variety in holes and stunning views both on and away from the water holes. As always had a great time with the GK crew and looking forward to my next outing and trip to RB.
