"Thanks again for your thoughtful hospitality in allowing me to visit Olivas Links yesterday. As usual with Forrest's designs, it exceeded my expectations. Most important it's fun and playable for all skills levels, and very deserving of the national recognition it has received. A tip of the cap to your superintendent and his staff for the great playing conditions, and to your professional staff for their courtesies and helpful insights. I will take advantage of every opportunity I have to brag on Olivas Links. Wishing you all continued success"  -Jeff Blaugrund (Arizona)
