Characteristics

The main feature of Los Olivos which distinguishes this course from Los Lagos is the abundance of trees - hence the name - and its smaller size, as well as fewer water hazards.  The greens are smaller, undulating and well defended.  Although both are the work of the same designer, there is no doubt there are interesting contrasts between the two courses: if Los Lagos are based on hazards of water and sand, Los Olivos is strategic narrow tree lined fairways and elevated greens.  The course is best suited for players gifted with a higher technical ability and precision in their game.
