Rode the Blacks yesterday 8/21/17 joined by my buddy Nickesquire. Could not pass up the free points that Buena has given me over the years so I played 36 holes for free in around 7 hours total--can't beat that. We had a beautiful day to play with temps in the 70's and maybe a 1 to 1.5 club wind--perfect conditions. Buena runs there all day twilight rates Monday's so if you are a Monday player I would check it out due to the current conditions. No range to warm up on but they have cages and a putting green.

Shorter, tighter tree line layout with undulating greens, afternoon wind and kikuyu tees and rough spread throughout. Always great staff here--Vicki in the pro-shop is a gem.

The fairways-well they are just flat out a treat--just have to rate them an 8.5 which is high for a muni but spot on. Little to no divots(those we saw were filled with sand), perfect lush lies in the fairways and even though thick you still get some roll out if you are a low ball hitter. Higher drives to do not get much roll out here. Fairways are the highlight of the course.

The rough is thicker, grabby kikuyu--would not say that long but can nestle greenside and make chipping kind of tough. Rough was in uniform good shape. Rating the rough 7.5/10.

Was in 5 bunkers over 36 holes, all raked and containing beach sand--Nick had one fried egg and I was lucky to have none. Bunkers rated 7/10.

The greens were in a lot better shape this week than last week. They rolled a little firmer this week and still contained ball marks from others. Minimal bounces and held any type of iron very well--very soft is a good description for the greens. We must have still fixed an extra 3-4 ball marks per green. Rating the greens a 6.5/10.

The tees were in very nice shape. So lush you need a strong tee to keep the tee in the ground. Mostly all the tees are level and the par 3's even are pretty well kept. Tees 7.5/10

With the free rounds it was a no brainer today--would recommend Buena if you want to work on bending the driver around doglegs, work on shorter and mid iron play and deal with windy conditions in the afternoon.

Course is in real good shape. Enjoy

2nd round of the 36 hole beautiful day of golf. Rode the Blacks (68.3-117-5826) on 8/14/2017 teeing off around 2:45pm with my buddy Nickesquire, my buddy Mack and his buddy Brian. POP was 4 hrs 10 minutes waiting for most of the day on the group in front of us. Weather was perfect low 70's and breezy(1-2 club wind). Paid their standard twilight rate of $25.00. Great staff inside pro-shop. Buena has a putting green and some nets to warm up.

They really got the fairways going on here. This is the nicest that I have seen the fairways in some time. Nick and I were commenting these were the best fairways we have seen here ever. Going to rate them an 8.5/10. Ball sitting up perfectly. Lush but contained some great roll out. Perfect combo. Fairly any divots.

The bunkers have pure white marble sand and the two I were in were a pleasure to hit out of (greenside #8 and #18). Rated 8/10.

The rough is very lush and thick here. It seems its mostly Kikuyu. Chipping and pitching can be tough out of it greenside. Very healthy stuff in good shape. Rated 8/10.

Tees were beautiful, mostly all level Kikuyu tees. rated 8/10

The greens were the only real disappointment. They were not horrible but they were super bumpy, thick, grainy and to make putts you had to rip the ball and hope to get the right bounce--lol. To me they just need to be cut and rolled. I did not see or notice an abundant amount of ballmarks so I think with a good cut they would be much better.

Overall I was pleasantly surprised with how nice the course was looking.

Walked the Blues (72.9-131-6875) 8:51am on 8/14/2017 with my buddy Nickesquire joined by two nice older gentleman who were a pleasure to play with but agonizing slow. Our POP was 4:35 but felt like 5:35. We were 2 holes behind holding the course up. Nick and I were in a tough position/situation but made it work. Surprised the marshall did not give us grief. We paid $28.00 on the GK walking coupon with beautiful weather mostly in the high 60's low 70's with a breeze on the back nine.

I just love this course.

Fairways semi-lush with a great amount of roll out. Very few divots or problem areas. Rated 7/10.

Greens the highlight as always--listed at a 11.3 on the starter shack--at least that maybe quicker on downhillers. The greens were glass, smooth and in great shape and holding high trajectory irons very nicely. I am rating them an 8.5/10 bordering on a 9/10.

The tees were mostly lush, level and only contained some minor divot damage on the par 3's. Rated 7.5/10

The rough was in good shape--no problem or bare areas noted. Thick in spots. rated 7.5/10

Was in greenside bunkers on #4 and #5 and #17 all contained good quality sand. Rated 7/10

Strong layout from the blues or blacks--a bit underrated on the slope and rating in my mind.

Highly recommended.

Rode the blues this afternoon 8/7/2017 on an EZLink promo code special for $16.49 with my buddies Nickesquire and Mack. Weather was breezy(2 club wind) and in the 70's beautiful weather. We played 27 holes in 5 hours--great POP finishing the 1st round in 3.5 hrs.

The fairways are just flat out green and beautiful, Very full and lush with your ball sitting up nicely. They have grown out some since my last round here. Rated 8.5/10

The tees are PGA tour quality--level, lush, green and striped beautifully--rated 9/10

The rough is lush, beautiful and very green --if you are off the fairways past the cartpath they have really grown it up US open style or worse. Rated 8.5/10

The bunkers are more on the firm side for Olivas. Looks like they have some hoses around some of the bunker areas and looks like they are wanting to do maintenance around some bunkers. Most of the bunkers were firm and crusty. I was 3/3 on sand saves today but beware they are not in the usual 9/10 category. Rating the bunkers a 7/10 today with a couple of them not even being raked.

The greens were really the only semi disappointing aspect of the course. More than the usual share of ballmarks. Rolling semi bumpy and very grainy. Rating the greens a 6.5/10.

Overall the tees, rough and fairways are beautiful. Greens are so/so--still highly recommended--great course.

Walked the Blues (72.9-131-6875) this morning 7/24/17 teeing off around 8:50am and finishing around 1:20pm for a 4.5 hr POP behind an entire Women's club. Joined by Andrew and Dean for a very enjoyable round. Paid $28.00 thanks to the GK coupon which is a steal for morning golf on this course. Weather was perfect 75 degrees and hardly any wind with what felt like humid conditions.

The Lakes course is in great shape right now.

Fairways beautiful mostly semi-lush green grass--ball sitting up fairly nice--very few thin lies and a treat to hit from. Rated 7.5/10.

The greens were listed as a 10.5--seen them quicker but they were still quick today and putted like glass. The lakes course always has beautiful greens. I actually stuck a few wedges in that had some backspin so I thought the greens were super receptive if you had spin or high trajectory irons. Rated 8/10

The tees were beautiful and level--very few divots only on par 3 boxes. Rated 7.5/10

Was in one greenside bunker on #7 and one fairway bunker on #12 that were perfectly raked and contained nice quality sand. Rated 7.5/10.

Rough was healthy around some of the fairway edges and green edges. In good lush and green shape. Rated 8/10.

This is a perfect course in the summer--great layout from the blue's or blacks--with the GK coupon a no brainer--highly recommended.

Walked the Blacks (73.0-130-6818) this afternoon 7/18/2017 joined by a very nice kick-back couple. Paid $16.49 on a teeoff promo special--declined the cart that came with the deal. POP was a shade under 4 hours waiting behind multiple 4somes on a very busy beautiful summer Monday at Olivas. Felt humid for Ventura with hardly any wind and mid 70 temps.

The course is just in fabulous lush shape. Not sure what was more lush--the fairways or tees.

Fairways were super green/lush with no problem areas. July is the best time to experience Olivas's fairways. Rated a 8.5/10.

The tees were rated a 9/10 for me. Rarely do I give a 9. Lush, level and cut beautifully with no damage on the 4's or 5's and very minimal damage on the 3's. Looked like they had the tees in different positions today. The black tee box on #16 has filled in nicely.

The greens were in good shape. Rated a 7/10 for me. I probably fixed an extra 4 ballmarks per green while waiting on the group ahead of us. It seems at Olivas since the greens hold so softly that the ballmarks really sink in here. Putts were smooth today. Some nice challenging pin placements today(number 3 on the pin sheet).

Was in fairway bunker on 7 that was raked beautifully and contained the right amount of sand to hit a wedge out of. Was not in any greenside bunkers but historically and looking at them today walking by they are always cream of the crop.

The rough is lush/green and in great shape surrounding the fairways. Very sticky stuff in certain parts. I hit a bomb on #2 and was 1 foot off the fairway with my ball sitting down almost 3 inches in thick rough. Rough rating 8/10.

The staff here is great, the practice facility is great, great weather, great twilight and super twilight prices, great layout--one of the better courses in SoCal for your wallet.

Walked the Blues playing "Super Super" Twilight yesterday evening 7/13/2017 at 6:10pm on my home course with my buddy Matt finishing the front nine, then holes 10-12 and then hole 18 in 2 hrs. We paid their $15.00 walking rate and got 13 holes in--great deal---their super twilight starts at 4:30pm so it's plenty of time to finish 18 this time of year. Playing late at 6pm was beautiful--still in the low 80's weather wise at teeoff but hardly any wind and the course to ourselves.

I am so impressed with the fairways at Rustic. Rustic sits in the hot Simi/Moorpark area and the fairways were mostly all green and lush with just a few browned out spots--but that's nitpicking. For sure they have a nice summer grass with padding going on. They should be commended with the heat we have had to keep the fairways in their current shape. Rated 7.5/10.

The greens were very slow in my opinion for Rustic's standard. Mostly smooth with a couple of late afternoon/early evening poa bumps. They had some awesome challenging pins that I have never seen before--as I rarely play this late on a Thursday. Greens were holding nicely. rated 7/10.

The tees are beautiful here--just like the fairways. Mostly all level and lush 8/10

The rough is a mixed bag--some lush spots, some thin spots, etc. hard to rate--generally in decent shape.

Bunkers always raked and groomed--most bunkers play almost like firm/waste bunkers.

Recommended--great fairway and tee conditions and above average green conditions--a great walk, a great price and a nice/layout.

Played late this morning 6/26/2017 as a part of the Gardena Police Department Fundraiser shotgun scramble teeing off at 11am with temps around 97-100 degrees with a brutal POP of around 5 hrs 25 minutes. Read all 3 reviews prior to playing here this morning and they did a great job of illustrating this private course up in the hills of Whittier. I was joined by my brother in law, Brandon and Andrew.

The highlight of the day was winning the long drive contest--but that was probably the only highlight--our group probably lost 20 balls today--I did my fair share losing 4 balls on my own. The best way to describe the layout is super hilly, elevated tees shots, blind tee shots, tight tree-lined fairways and the main issue I had was the kikuyu grass--not a big fan of it chipping around the greens(never had been--never will!). This is a target golf course that does give you however the chance to grip and rip but only on a couple of holes. My one friend said it best years ago--any time you have a 130 or more slope from the white tees alone you know its going to be a great test of golf.

The conditions I thought were fantastic for the beginning of summer and knowing probably how hot it can get out here.

The fairways I thought were the highlight of the course. Super tight, lush mowed super green kikuyu grass. In perfect shape--I am rating them a 8.5/10.

The tees were mostly all level and lush kikuyu tees. Most of the par 3's were filled in nicely. Rated 8/10.

Wasn't in any bunkers but they looked to be raked and on the firmer side.

The rough was very sticky kikuyu grass surrounding the fairways and greens. In very good shape. Rated 8/10.

The greens including the practice green looked thick but rolled nicely with minimal bounces--would say medium speed and held approach shots like darts. Rated 7/10

Don't know if I will get a chance to play this private again but would like another shot at it now that I know what to expect.

Recommended for a change of pace if you get a chance.

Walked the Blues (71.6-127-6530) this afternoon 6/19/2017 on an EZlink 20% promo deal for $16.49 teeing off at 2pm with my buddy Mack and his buddy Ricki. Passed on the cart today which was included with the price. Weather was high 60's-semi foggy with light winds. Perfect day for golf. We waited behind a slower 2some and a slow 4some ahead of them coming in with a POP of 4 hrs 30 minutes.

Not a ton of changes condition wise from my last round here weeks ago.

Fairways green, mostly lush with nice padded lies. Today there were a certain number of fairways punched that seemed to be random from hole to hole. Rated 8/10

Greens were soft, putting fairly pure--groups ahead not fixing ballmarks--would venture to say I fixed an extra 3-4 ballmarks per hole besides mine. Rated 7.5/10.

Was not in any bunkers but they looked raked and in nice shape.

Mostly all the blue tees are level and in great shape. Some of them might even be too fluffy. Rated 8.5/10 and probably the highlight of the course.

Rough was thick in spots just off the fairways. Was in great shape shiny green and lush. Rated 8/10.

The lakes between 11/12 and 13/16 are dried up with no water in them.

You can't beat the weather in Oxnard or Ventura when the Valley's are hot. Great layout here, great staff, great prices. Highly recommended.

Walked the Blacks(73.4/133/7028) this afternoon 6/12/2017 joined by my buddy Mack and his buddy Brian. Our POP was just over 4 hrs waiting some on a 3 some ahead of us. Weather was mid 70's, breezy on the front with the wind dying some on the back nine. Great staff checking us in. Looked like they got some newer mats on the driving range. Paid their standard twilight rate of $22.00 which starts after 2pm Monday through Thursday--what a deal.

I was most impressed with the fairways here. I need to check when I played here last but I can tell you that the fairways have improved since I have last played here. The back nine fairways seemed even more lush than the front fairways. Some nice cushion padding for irons. Rated 7/10.

The greens are just flat out awesome. They held higher irons with spin well but putted and chipped very quickly which is the perfect mix. Fixed my share of extra ballmarks while waiting for my playing partners to finish their putts. Rated the greens 8/10

The tees are super lush, green and mostly all level. A couple of tees looked almost PGA tour like. Rated 8.5/10.

The rough around the greens is nice and lush--rough around the fairways is a mixed bag--lush in spots, thin in spots and even hardpan dirt in spots--this would be the only area the course needs to improve. Greenside rough rated 8.5/10--fairway rough rated 6/10.

Was not in any greenside or fairway bunkers but they looked to be in good shape, firm and raked.

Tried the blacks today--very good test of golf especially on the back nine.

Love my home course--recommended for sure at this current time.

Played Moorpark CC riding with the GK gurus JohnnyGK, RGM2525 and Itslikeimsaying this morning 6/5/2017 teeing off around 11am. We took our time enjoying the day with a POP around 4 hours 35 minutes not waiting on any shots. We played the Black tees at (73.0-138-7010). Weather was perfect low 80's with a little bit of a breeze cooling things down some.

Moorpark has a great practice facility with a nice grass driving range, nice chipping green and a huge putting green. Starters here are always so friendly and nice.

The course is in very good shape.

The greens were super soft and holding irons like darts. There is more and more poa creeping into them. I remember when I first played here they were all bent grass greens. They were rolling very nice for the amount of poa that was in them. The pins today were tucked and challenging. Moorpark CC has many green complexes where you can tuck and hide pins which makes accuracy with your irons very important. I thought the greens were rated a 8/10 for me.

The fairways were nicely padded and mostly lush in all places. Mix between dormant and light green in color for the most part. Rated a 8/10

The tees were mostly lush, level and sand divots on the par 3's were filled in nicely. Rated 8/10.

Was in one bunker on Canyon Crest #7 that contained raked nice sand that looked crusty on top but had plenty of sand to splash out of. Rated 7.5/10

The rough was very healthy and green lining the fairways. It was a club grabber. Would say 2-3 inches in places and was a nice contrast to the more dormant color fairways. Rated 8.5/10.

Moorpark CC is a canyon course that really puts the accuracy on the driver and iron play on most holes. You must hit the ball fairly straight to score well here or there is doom lurking. I personally think its the perfect mix of a tough course while still providing fun and shot value for any type of player. Amazing layout and views make this course one of the better courses in all of Ventura County. Highly recommended.

Rode the Blues (71.6-127-6530) yesterday afternoon 6/3/17 teeing off at 2:20pm on an EZlink promo code deal for $24.00. Joined by my 3 buddies Mack, Matt and Pedro. We had a blast playing in 4 hours 15 minutes not waiting at all playing in what felt like Scotland morning weather. It was 90 degrees in Moorpark yesterday--when I arrived in Ventura it was 65 degrees, super foggy with a light mist and about a 7mph wind for most of the day--it got downright cold the last 2 holes--

Super staff(logan,Michelle) got us checked in and ready to go. They have the grass range going on weekends. This is a super place to practice chipping and your short game--they have a huge putting green, huge chipping green including a practice bunker similar to the bunkers on the course.

The fairways are in very good shape--mostly lush and green with enough padding under the ball. They just had their City Championships last week so this is the time of the year to experience nice rough and fairways conditions at Olivas. Rated 8/10

Speaking of the rough it was thick and green just outside the fairways. If you venture past that it has really grown up outside of the cartpaths up to above waist deep--my buddy had two drives outside of the cartpaths where he was barely able to advance the ball 5-10 feet in front of him with a full swing--nasty stuff! Rated 8/10

The greens were super soft! They were a little to slow for my taste but rolled fairly true. To give you an idea how soft they were on #5 we had an extreme front pin--my wedge that I hoisted super high stopped just on the front of the green and actually backed up some on the downslope--he he--normally it would release a good 10-15 feet by the pin. Rated 7.5/10

Was in greenside bunkers on 11 and 18 that were just in perfect shape. Nicely raked beach sand that is thick that you want to really thump. Rated 8.5/10

The tees were just flat out beautiful. Level, lush, green and not too many divots. Most par 3 divots were filled in nicely. Rated 8.5/10.

Course is in real good shape right now--recommended.
