Birthday Surprise

Surprised my sweetheart with a golf day and we spent the night too. We have lived in Ventura County for most of our lives and we had never been here. 20 minutes from home for us. Treat yourself and go. We had a great experience from start to end. Only wish we had stayed longer. Everyone was so great and the atmosphere at the resort was so relaxed. Everywhere we went they were wishing my Husband a "Happy Birthday". He felt so Special. The weather was great, warm with rain that evening. We had a deer run across one of the holes we were on too. Loved our time at the Inn!!!

Give it time to dry

The course was wet and muddy yesterday (understandable) after the recent rains, so cart path only, muddy ball after every shot, hiking through lots of casual water to get to the ball. Greens were rolling well and the course is as green as I’ve ever seen it.

Poor condition & No notice of cart path ONLY

Long time friend had mentioned how creative and nice this course is but turnaround it was just horrible course & condition. When I booked with golf now and drove almost 2 hours expecting to play great course. When I arrived without no one telling us it was cart path ONLY ? All holes grass is very poor condition and muddy. Last we had group front of us playing
5 sums playing horribly delaying our game. They were backed up multiple hole front of their group ?? I mean I could go on but I think it’s not worth my time. This was my first and last time playing paying almost $100 round ?? I don’t think with all conditions above plus wouldn’t worth this money. This course would be similar to Hansan Dam course only pay $35 lol. Golf course should info customers specially GolfNow that it will be cart path ONLY. I really regretted driving 2 hours with paying high cost …

My first time, but will definitely come back for more!

I had a great day playing here. Got to play with 2 nice gentlemen from hole 1 through 9. It is somewhat challenging course (I'm a handicap 18), but loved it. Beautiful course and surroundings.

Beautiful Course w/ Scenic Views

Great facility overall and staff was super hospitable and helpful. Range is one of the nicer ones around. The course was in great winter shape, I’m sure it’s a gem in the spring. Fun and challenging layout, but not a ball stealer. Greens were private club/tournament fast, and some pin positions were daunting. The downside was that there was no ranger, official starter, or cart girl and that definitely had its consequences, but not worth taking away a star.

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.
