Amazing Classic Course

I love this course. It's not long but it requires strategic and precise shots to accomplish scoring. George Thomas is an all-time great course architect and this course is a testament to that. You start by playing out from the Inn and weave down into the valley and surrounding property in a supremely enjoyable routing. Memorable holes are littered all around the course and kikuyu grass provides a proper challenge from the rough. Strategic short par 4's, both short and long par 3's and tons of elevation change makes this arguably the best public course for the money in Southern California. Highly recommend it for elevated resort style golf.

Everyone's favorite

Ojai Valley Inn & Golf Course is the one place where pretty much everyone I ever speak with about it, agrees that if they'd had their druthers, they'd play and stay at Ojai Valley. The price, however, is a little steep for players who may tee off three or more times a week. Otherwise, a favourite course with terrific after-round food and drinks.
