Played this afternoon 9/10/2018 twilight with my buddies Brian and Mack. POP 4 hours. Weather was breezy and nice around 78 degrees.

This is the best I have seen this golf course in a very long time.

The fairways are like lush PGA carpet surfaces. They must really be watering out here lately. Perfect lies. Rated 9/10.

The tees were very lush and mostly all level. Great shape. Rated 8.5/10

The rough was green, lush and in great shape. Rated 8.5/10.

Bunkers looked to be in good shape with deep thick nicely raked sand.

The greens were soft, contained many pitch marks that we fixed and rolled semi-smooth with minor bumps. Rated 6.5/10.

Other than the greens which are not that bad the rest of this course(fairways, tees, rough) are all in the 8.5 range.

Highly recommended.

Walked early this morning 9/4/2018 for my b-day round with friends. Weather was very nice overcast, little bit of wind and cooler temps. Met by nice staff inside the pro-shop and starter was really nice(even had his friendly dog) right by the putting green.

I love this course. It was in very nice condition as it usually is.

The fringes/aprons were re-sodded and are very lush and green.

The tees are mostly all level with most of the par 3's being filled in with sand.

The greens are super soft on approach but are rolling beautiful. Around a 10.5 on the stimp and in great condition.

The fairways contain padded lies and are in great shape. Mostly green and semi-lush.

Was in fairway bunker on #12 that contained some high quality sand.

Rough was mostly uniform and in healthy shape.

Great mix of tough par 4's, some scoreable par 5's and some tough par 3's. POP was great today at 4 hrs. Great golf course.

Highly Recommended.

I walked the Black tees yesterday 8/27/2018 with one of my best buds visiting from the Midwest. POP 4 hours, weather nice low 80's. I have played this course as my home course since it first opened. I have not seen the fairways, tees and green side rough in nicer shape than it was on Monday.

The fairways were lush, mostly all green and provided excellent padding. Staff is to be commended as it gets hot back here in the Canyon. Rated 8/10.

The tees were excellent, level and lush and in great shape. Rated 8/10,

The greenside rough was a 9/10. Lush, beautiful to chip out of.

I will not rate the greens today as it looked like on some of the front nine greens there were sections that had been recently punched with super small holes. At current time the greens look great to the naked eye but they are soft and slow. I am sure in a week or so they will be rolling their true normal beautiful self.

Was not in any bunkers but they all looked raked with firmer sand.

Wonderful display of some really tough par 4's from the Blue's or Black's along with some score able holes mixed throughout the round. Still one of the if not the best back nine's in the County.

Highly recommended.

Walked the Blacks today 8/20/2018 with my buddy Steve. Used the GK coupon which was $28.00 to walk. POP 4 hrs. Weather was nice a little humid with temps around 80 degrees. Great pro-shop and starter. Nice putting green similar to course greens and a big driving range.

Always love coming here. Great challenging layout from the Blues or Blacks--always well conditioned with great pace of play. Fun holes here and you will use every club in your bag.

The greens were listed as a 10.6 and were rolling at least that maybe closer to an 11 on the stimp. Pure rolls with some of the back nine greens having a minor slit that looked like it was just healing up. The greens have a perfect mix of really holding irons with spin yet rolling fast and pure. Rated 8/10.

Fairways had nice semi-lush padding. Never a bad lie in the fairways. Rated 7.5/10

The tees were mostly all level and were lush and in good shape. Rated 8/10.

The rough was green and lush and in great shape. Aprons were green and lush and soft and in great shape as well. Rated 8/10.

Was in 2 fairway bunkers on 3 and 13 that were raked and in perfect shape with compact sand. Rated 8/10.

Very highly recommended.

Played Monday 8-13-2018 with buddies. POP was 4 hours 40 minutes behind a packed tee sheet. Paid $25.00 to walk which on Monday's is their all day twilight rate. Weather was very nice in the low 80's and a bit humid. Staff here are so friendly. Hitting cage to warm up in--no range. Nice big sloped putting green--no frills bar and restaurant.

My buddy who had not played in over a year was visiting from the Midwest and Buena is such a nice course to get back into the game--we had a great time.

The fairways were lush, tightly mowed turf with only a few brown spots here and there. This is a summer course that is always very well maintained in the summer. Rated 8/10

The tees were mostly level and very lush. You needed a long tee peg here. Good shape. Rated 8/10.

I was only in one bunker on number 13 that had nicely raked sand. I dropped some balls in some of the bunkers with some of my buddies on a few holes and the last review was correct some of the bunkers seemed thin but not to bad. Rated 7/10

The rough is green, lush and around the greens is a nice challenge. Its not to high but a great way to describe it is sticky. The aprons here are not meant for bump and run and are sticky as well and they are in good shape. Rated 8/10.

The greens are super soft and are really holding shots well at this time. They are rolling medium speed. Uphillers can be a bit slow. Rated 7/10.

I always love the weather and the all day twilight rates are great on Monday especially if you can get out early in the morning. Some parkland holes here with a awesome mix of shorter treeline doglegs. A very fun short layout that is well maintained. I would recommend this course to any golfer. Have Fun.

Walked the Blacks for 27 holes today on a hot humid day even for Ventura with temp around 83 degrees and about a 10 mph wind. POP was 2 hrs for first 9 holes and 4 hrs for second 18 holes. Joined by my buddies Mack and Ricki for the last 18 holes and played with 3 nice older gentleman the first 9 holes. Lots of people out at Buena today--ventura is cooler, Olivas is punching and it was their all day twilight rate today at Buena. Great staff(Vicki) in the pro-shop. No range here to warm up just cages. Nice big putting green.

The greens were rolling fairly smooth, soft and I thought slow. They were in great shape holding mostly all shots like darts. The greens here are big and undulating and fun to putt on. They can get creative here with pin placements in tucked spots. Green rating 7/10.

The fairways at Buena are in great shape. Padded lush lies--hardly any problem areas. Super should be commended. Rating 8/10--closer to an 8.5.

Tees in very good shape--you could even say some were too lush. Mostly level. They have brand new black tees on 12, 13 and 15. Number 13 is now for sure the toughest hole on the back nine with the tee pushed back some 45 yds--great fun par 4 now into the breeze.

The rough was green, lush and in good shape. Rated 7.5/10

Was not in any bunkers but Buena like Olivas always has nice thicker sand raked beach type of bunkers.

Overall Buena fit the bill for a quick round. Course is in real good shape--take advantage of their Monday twilight rates but get an early tee time if you do--recommended.

Late review---Walked the Blacks a couple days ago with my buddy RGM2525. Paid their
late sunset rate of $21.00. POP 4 hrs 20 minutes behind a packed tee sheet. Weather was 1 club wind and around 80 degrees. The staff here are so nice. Practice facilities are great. For sure a summer course in really nice shape.

The fairways were lush, padded and great lies all day. 8/10

Bunkers looked to be all raked and in great shape with soft sand 8/10

Tees were very lush--almost to lush where a small tee might not work. Great shape 8.5/10

Rough is green, lush and in great shape just off the fairways. Most of the dry red hazards do not have any water in them. Rough rating 8/10

The greens just had a small 1/4 micro punch that effected putts some. I am sure in a week or so they will be back to normal. With the maintenance I will not rate the greens today.

Great layout, weather and prices. Beat the heat and give Olivas some business. Highly recommended.

Needed to get in a quick round and saw an online TeeOff.com promo code at Camarillo Springs for $14.00 with cart on a British Open promo code for today 7/23/2018. Rode the Blues this morning being let out an hour early by nice staff. POP was 3 hrs 5 minutes playing through 5 groups. Not sure if I have ever played through that many groups. Looks like they might have had a shotgun tourney (based on the cart assignments I saw) this morning teeing off before the groups I played through. Thankfully I just missed the tourney. Weather was mid 80's with a 1-2 club breeze at times.

The course is in about as good condition as it was couple weeks ago when I played here. Its not in super or pristine condition but it is playable. The layout, price today and the quick round all had what the doctor ordered.

The greens were again the highlight of the course. They were very soft on approach. They rolled medium speed--would say a 9.5 on the stimp. Very few ballmarks, healthy and shiny green. Rated 7.5/10.

The fairways had mixtures of lush green grass, sections of thin fairway grass and some hardpan areas here and there. Overall they played decently but seemed dry in many spots. Rated 6/10

Was in one fairway bunker on #4 that contained raked firm sand easy to hit out of.

Many tees were un-level and you needed to hunt for a level stance. They were very thick and green to the naked eye. Rating 6/10

The rough was again a mixed bag today. Some hardpan, some brown area, some really thicker nestled down deeper stuff that did not look bad to the naked eye but would sink down deep. Great layout and for $14.00 with a cart--they got me back out on this course.

I Walked the Blacks this morning 7/16/18. Played with Mack, Brian and Ricki on a beautiful morning to play golf. Humid mid 70 temps with a 1 club breeze for most of the day. Paid $28.00 using the walking GK coupon. POP was 4 hrs 25 minutes.

The Lakes course from the blacks is the longest course in Ventura/Santa Barbara counties and you really get a work out walking up holes 1 and 2, green from 14 to 15 and from 15 green to 16 tee.

Very friendly staff, marshall, cart ladies. Nice practice range, 2 separate chipping areas and 2 big putting greens for both the Lakes and Vineyard Courses.

The greens were listed as a 11.8 on the stimp. They were flat out beautiful. Rolling pure and quick without any blemishes. Best of both worlds as they took to high and soft iron approaches. Rated 8.5/10. Some of the better greens I have putted on in a while.

The fairways were semi-lush with really nice padding and still some roll out for players that like to hit it low off the tee. Rated 7/10.

Was in 2 greenside bunkers on #5 and #16 that contained nice softer sand that was raked and a pleasure to hit out of. Rated 7.5/10

Tees were mostly all level and semi-lush and in great shape. Rated 7.5/10.

The rough around the fairways have grown up and there were some thicker lies for our group today. Challenging and in good shape. Rated 8/10.

I love the back nine here it has so much character-did something today that I have never done and that was reach #14 in 2 shots(from the blacks) with two absolute bombs. We had a back left pin today on the next hole #15(par 3)--that might be one of the tougher greens around when they put the pin where they did today.

This course is very recommended--had a great time today.

Rode the Blacks 7/9/2018 with my buddies Mack and Brian on a Teeoff.com promo deal for $20.49. Teed off at 2:30pm POP was 4 hrs behind a pretty full tee sheet ahead of us. Weather was low 80's, very humid with a slight breeze.

Love their practice area, staff and prices here at Olivas. It was around 100 degrees in Moorpark/Simi so driving to Olivas was a good call.

The greens were super healthy, lush, green and putted medium to slow. Fixed 2-3 extra ballmarks per hole. Got to really hit putts firm here to make em. Rated 7.5/10.

The fairways were lush, only few burned out brown areas. Great lies all day. Rated 8/10.

The tees were all level and were lush and in great shape. They have re-sodded the black tees on number 17 and it looks great. Rated 8/10.

Was not in one bunker the whole day but they all looked raked and had great beach sand in them.

The rough along the fairways was in great lush shape, green healthy. Rated 8/10.

No water in the hazards along 11/12 and 13/16.

Our group had a great time--love playing both Olivas and RiverRidge in the summer heat.

Walked the Blues this afternoon 7/2/2018 first twilight group out at 2pm with my buddy RGM2525 and two nice singles Jason and Macey. Weather was perfect low 80's with a slight breeze and one of the reasons I tied my personal best score at Rustic today!--very little wind today. POP was 4 hrs 10 minutes. Paid their walking twilight rate during the week which is $22.00. Great staff.

They have re-rated Rustic and I think they are more on the mark now with the Blue rating going up to a 130 slope and the blacks now at a 135.

Fairways were the best I have seen Rustic this year. Semi-lush with decent grass coverage in most areas. You might still encounter a harder pan lie here or there but they looked good to this golfer. It gets real hot out here in July, August, September so I commend the staff for how nice the fairways are at current time. Rated 7/10

The greens were two total different courses. Greens were generally all rolling true. The front nine greens must have just been watered and not rolled. They were slow for Rustic's standards putting wise. The greens on the back were firmer and putting awesome. Our group did fix and extra 3-4 ballmarks per hole. Overall would rate the greens a 7/10.

The tees were mostly all level and they looked like they had just done some past verticut maintenance on some of the tees. They were not there usual lush and green self but looked decent. Rated 7/10.

Was in greenside bunkers on 2 and number 12 that contained raked semi-firmer sand that was easy to get out of if you opened the clubface enough at address. Rated 6.5/10

The rough here around the fairways is always the poorest part of the course. Dry, hardpan in areas and clumpy. Rated 5/10

Greenside rough is beautiful lush and very green just off the fringes. Rated 8/10.

Always love playing here--recommended.

Walked the Blues this afternoon 6/29/2018 with RGM2525 in very breezy(2 club wind) conditions. Weather was around 65 degrees. We flew around this hilly course walking in 3 hrs 15 minutes even waiting on a couple groups on the front and back nine which we eventually played through. We paid their walking twilight fee of $20.00 which starts at 2pm. Friendly staff--putting green right next to the 1st tee--did not use the range. Pro-shop old school and their carts did not have roofs which looked totally cool and old school as well.

First time playing here--- first impressions were that it is a fun, tighter tree line course where multiple holes you are bending the driver right and left. Multiple trees come into play off the tee and sometimes on approach. Ron and I hit beautiful position tee shots on #16 and they have one of the biggest trees I have ever seen in my life guarding the green--you actually have to hit a punch shot to get to the green--I thought it was pretty cool. Some in course and off the course out of bounds comes into play which I encountered once on number 2.

The greens rolled quicker than La Purisma but were just a little bumpier. Not bad overall. They were very soft as well on approach shots. Rated 7/10

The fairways were thinner to semi-lush--if you hit a low ball here you will get some roll. Fairway rating 6/10.

The rough was pretty poor and dry here--some clumps of dead grass, some hardpan and some lusher portions--total crapshoot on what you were going to get. Rated 5/10.

Was in one bunker on number 1 that was in very good shape with softer sand. Rated 7/10.

The tees were fairly lush--some teeing grounds were un-level and you could almost always find a good stance.

Some course knowledge could come in handy on this course with sightline off tees. For $20.00 it was worth the green fee--it was fun but I would prefer La P, Mission Club or River Course at Alisal over this course. I would still recommend this course if in the area.
