Played Los Olivos in March 2011 on annual golf trip to Costa.
Staff pleasant enough, we got a decent enough welcome and staff were fine when we finished our round. Prices a bit steep at the bar though so beware!
The course itself was wet through after a couple of days torrential rain - it had been closed the previous day. The 15th should have been closed, it had standing water everywhere, and there was nowhere to find relief. This aside, however, fairways didn't have too much standing water on the them.
With the exception of 4 or 5 holes, you can hit your ball pretty much anywhere and be in play. There is one section of the course - 3 through 8 - that is very "bomb alley", but that aside it's ok.
Greens were decent enough though a lot slower than what we'd played all week. Bunkers were atrocious, real low quality sand full of big pebbles/stones. Tee beds and fairways were well kept.
It was without doubt our slowest round of the week, almost 6 hours in total with absolutely nowhere to go. We've since been told it's pretty stanbard for Mijas, but the problem is it's not a good enough course in my opinion to justify a 6 hour round!
It was ok, but there are better around for the money and as such it wouldn't be in my mind to rush back.
Played Los Olivos Friday 29/9/06. Course in great condition. Not that difficult a course but good fun. Suited our handicap range (15-21) so might be too easy for better golfers. Long round with occasional wait on tees.
Played both of these courses in April and I would not go back again. It was in appauling state! The rounds were 5 hours long. So its come bottom of all the courses I have played abroard and at home in the UK. Leave for others to play.
We played both Lagos & Olivios on a friday, and both courses were in top conditions. The greens were fast and true. The fairways in mint condition. Fantastic golf, and not too slow either. Great surroundings as well.
By far the worst conditioned course i have ever played, weeds on the greens and fairways and tees. Nearly 6 hours for a round!! waiting on every tee for the groups in front.
Fantastic, enjoyable day out. From the girl at the starter desk to the bar staff everybody really friendly. Course itself was a joy to play and the three holes round the water (6,7 and 8) were good fun. Thought I'd managed my first ever hole in one on the 15th but wasnt to be. Not too expensive and is a good challeng for a mid to high handicapper, low handicappers may find it reasonably easy. Playing this and Los Lagos later this year.
Played Lagos last week with a society.
The course was in good condition although the greens were a little unpredictable.
Only complaint was that the course was very busy and the round therefore very long - nearly five hours.
The marshals did their best to hurry everyone along and were very friendly.
Worth a visit.
Played both courses in 1 day. Los Lagos in the morning which we found stunning (great holes in great condition and took 3.75 hours for a 4-ball- we were paired up). Some really interesting holes and well placed water.
Played Los Olivos in the afternoon. Course is newer and less interesting. Unfortunateley, the marshalling was poor and it took 5.75 hours by which time, we'd lost interest.
We'll play again but only Lagos in the morning.
Check out the rebuilding on this course being carried out at the moment , and for the foreseeable future.
Los Olivios 20/04/00
Los Olivios. After a pretty non-descript opening hole, this course really grabs a hold of you. Some stunning holes which will get you thinking about every shot. The greens are in first class condition (take a putting stroke with you cos it is impossible to develop one on greens as fast as these). Nice driving range to get your muscles loose before your tee of time. All in all a class golf course. Not too hilly (24 guys all carried clubs round and no complaints) and if you get the right tee time, should not exceed the 4 hour mark.
Found both courses to be in good condition with some very challenging holes, although it was very busy and they were doulble teeing from 1st and 10th.
All in all worth a visit but I would suggest Torrequebrada or La Cala (suggest you get a buggy for either of these!!!!!!.....you'll need it!!!)
Los Lagos - Spanish for the lakes - is a beautiful course and an excellent test of golf. The water in those lakes affects you on 4,5,6,7,8,10, 11 and 13 with 5 and 6 being probably the most awkward. The par 3 11th is a lovely hole as are several others and the overall setting is superb.
Los Olivos is a lovely course but at points very hilly.\r\nA very demanding last hole par which must be one of the longest in spain as well as beening uphill.\r\nA par 3 also consists of about 100ft drop from tee to green.
