Always a Treat

The great OVI on a perfect Ojai day..what more could you ask for. A great rate to boot! Greens have made a very respectable comeback. We have been waiting several months play, well worth the wait!

extremely slow pace

had a tee time at 12.20, started already almost 10min late, front 9 (which where actually the back 9 - we started playing at hole 10 for weather / temperature reason) had a pace of over 5h. Back 9 picked up the pace a but but we still ended up at and almost 5h round. Expect better for that kind of course / money...

Ojai Valley Inn GC -What an enjoyable round!

I never do reviews but my round of golf today at Ojai Valley Inn Golf Club was a treat! First, $110 for a round including cart and range balls is A STEAL at this exceptional course! It was in great shape and the pace of play was very good. The course is a great layout and the scenery was just gorgeous and relaxing. All the staff was super nice and helpful. My playing partner and I didn’t even care about our score, it was just nice to be on a challenging course and also feel like you are on vacation. I will definitely be playing again at Ojai Valley Inn!

Ojai Valley Inn Back to normal quality standards!

Played 34 holes for my birthday on Sunday. Last time I played at OVI this summer, the greens were in very poor shape on the front nine. They were excellent on Sunday - even the previously damaged 6th and 8th green.
The course was in very good condition from tee to green. The staff was great.
It is a nice resort and a couple things are a bit pricey (Golf and drinks), but despite that it was a great time at a great course on a beautiful day. I look forward to coming back soon.

Gorgeous, but difficult course

Great course. No waiting. Couple of holes with ravines make for difficult play.
