I just got off the phone with CMCC and they said they are 4somes only now. I was wondering if anyone has been there recently to actually confirm that there was no 5somes on the course?

This course is less than a mile away from my house yet I never play there due to the POP issues. I would be more than happy to play here more often if the 5 some issue is gone which results in faster POP.

The courses in OC as well as other counties stopped allowing 5somes due to Covid. I played C.M. Lagos in June and July and I never saw a 5some on the course.

I played there twice in the last month and never saw a fivesome. Both rounds were early morning and both right at 4 hours

Breaking my multiple year non-participating streak here.

I went and played Los Lagos two weekends ago. Saturday 8:45ish time. POP was 3 hours and 10 minutes on the front 9. #4 (first par 3) literally had four groups waiting on the tee. I still don't know how that happens. I left after 9.

I was optimistic because most places so far, POP has been much better with spread out times and no 5somes. We teed off on time, but it was slow going from the start.

The reason this course, Los Lagos, has pace of play issues is the first 4 holes. 2 par 5's with one reachable, the hardest par 4 on the course and then a 190 yard par 3. These 4 holes add up to waiting for at least 3 times on the first 4 holes and then everything backing up moving forward. With 3 par 5 holes in the first 6 holes, with at least one reachable and the other two, people think they can reach and the fact that it is not all scratch players out there playing, this does not bode well for pace.

The only way to stop this is 15 mins. between tee times and that will never happen. It is not the 5 somes but they dont help

There was a vote about 10 years ago with the ownership group and the mens club about swapping the first holes of mesa linda and los lagos. That would create a long par 4 to start Los Lago and may have helped the POP issues but it was shot down. CMCC loves money too much to switch to 15 tee times and as long as they keep selling every tee time it will never change.
