Another Great Round!

Annually several of us travel from Chicago to see family and play golf in the LA area. A MUST stop over the last several years has been Ojai. We found the course in excellent condition from tees, to fairways, to greens. Ojai is in much better condition than other courses we played during the week. Every time we play here the staff is helpful and the pace of play excellent. There are multiple elevations throughout the course, beautiful landscaping, and a sense of history. For the intermediate player, the course is challenging and will reward good shots. We will return next trip.

Great out of the way resort

Worth the drive from LA. Historic old resort looks cool. Course not too difficult. Lots of elevation changes. Pretty views. Yardage on the shorter side so easy to overpower hazards and score. Play in the am have lunch the drive back to beat rush hour. Zach said will do it again.

I want to keep it a secret

Love this course, the staff, and the restaurants. I really wish I could do a poor review to keep it hidden.

Fun course! Enjoyed it very much except......

The course was in pretty good shape except Hogan's Hollow! That green was overgrown and not cut. Not sure what was going on as we weren't notified.

Ojai Valley Golf was fantastic!

Ojai Valley Inn & Spa was fantastic. We had breakfast before our round at the The Oak which was superb. The golf course and the weather could not have been better. We had one issue on the back nine where the short uphill par 3 green was having an issue so they hadn’t mowed it for a few days…otherwise, the course was in great great shape!
