Walked the Blacks today 12/11/2017 teeing off 30 minutes before our scheduled twilight time of 12 noon. Joined by Brian. Our POP was 3 hrs 30 minutes not waiting on any shots until hole 15 where we caught a log jam and finished with a nice twosome for the last 3 holes. Weather was in the low 70's with a slight breeze(hardly any wind) and sunny and semi-smoky conditions due to the close by fires. Nice staff at check-in. Had 10 minutes or so to use the nice practice facilities. Paid their standard twilight rate of $29.00 walking.

Have not played here for a little bit. The biggest difference I saw were the greens today. They were in very nice shape--had that glassy December quick vibe and a couple putts and chips could really roll out on players today. Not to many ballmarks but a couple foot marks here and there as even though they putted quicker the greens here are still soft and hold irons like absolute darts. Rated 8/10.

Fairways provided nice cushion lies--would say color of the fairways have turned half dormant brown and half green. Still always a pleasure to hit from them. For December these fairways are better than your normal courses. Rated 7/10

The tees were level, some par 3 black tees with divot damage--number 17 you come to mind(probably use 2 full bottles of divot mix from my playing partner's cart. Overall par 4 and 5 tees in very nice shape. Rated 7/10

The rough just outside the fairways is very green and lush and in beautiful shape. Rated 8/10. Of note they knocked and weed wacked down many native areas not in play just in front of tees and around some native areas I am assuming due to the nearby fires and the way the Santa Ana winds blow from Santa Paula directly to this course.

Was in greenside bunker on #8 and #18 that contained nicely raked damper beach sand that was easy to get out of and thump. Rated 7.5/10.

Great layout--not a lot of people on the course today--recommended.
Out this afternoon 12/4/2018 walking the orange tees joined by my buddy Mack and his buddy Brian and a nice single. We teed off at 11:50am 10 minutes early and finished at 4:20pm for a POP of 4 hrs 30 minutes--we played the front in 2 hrs and then had a 3 group back-up on #10 tee. Weather was beautiful maybe 1 club wind and around 70 degrees at tee off. Paid the walking twilight rate of $19.00 which considering how nice and lush the course is might be one of the best deals in VC county.

Soule Park should be commended on current conditions--very lush and green fairways with very little problem areas. Rated 8/10.

Greens looking and rolling beautiful. Very little to no ball marks, holding very softly on approaches and actually rolling medium to fast. In great shape. Rated 8/10.

Tees mostly level and lush--rated 7.5/10

Was not in any bunkers but they looked to be raked and in good shape.

Rough generally lush and green and in good shape. Rated 8/10.

I just love this course--especially for the rates they charge. New management is really keeping it up nicely for the start of December. Recommended.
Out for the Black Friday experience this morning 11/24/2017 at Soule Park. Walked the Orange Tees joined by my buddies Matt and Rick. We were quoted $28.00 to walk when we booked our time last week. When we showed up this morning they wanted $40.00 to walk. After going back and forth for a couple minutes they honored the original price of $28.00 they stated on the phone. Weather was perfect mid 80's with light breezes and the POP was 5 hours on the busiest day of golf. We had a 10:24am tee time and teed off around 11:10am and finished right at 4:10pm. Never seen this before but they had a marshall in the 1st fairway waving groups on the tee to hit down the hill with groups in front not even out of the way--kind of weird but I guess it worked.

The new management at Soule Park really has this place green and lush from tee to green. Also added some new white marble beach sand in some of the bunkers--#3 and #16 come to mind if I remember right.

The fairways are very lush, full coverage with very few problem areas at all. They must be watering the tees, rough and fairways cause this is the best shape that I have seen Soule Park in this late in the year. Fairway rating 8/10

The tees were lush, semi-level--some tees need minor leveling like #5. Rated 7.5/10.

The greens were rolling very nicely. Soft and holding nicely on approach--fixed some ballmarks from the groups in front of us. Huge Gil Hanse green complexes and you can have some real long lag putts here. Rated 7.5/10

Most of the bunkers had the old brown clay like sand that was firmer and then there were holes like #3 and #16(both par 3's) that had new white soft marble sand. Thinking they are trying to convert all the bunkers to that white marble stuff. White marble sand bunkers rated 8.5/10. Clay like bunkers 7/10.

Rough lining the fairways very lush, green and in good shape. Rated 8/10.

Very fun layout with a couple strong par 4 holes #8, 12, 14 and 15. Plenty of scoring chances on the par 5's #4, 5, 11 and 18--beautiful scenery and great prices.

Recommended with the new management changes.
Walked the Blues today 11/20/2017 teeing off a couple minutes late for the 1st twilight group off around 12:05pm. POP behind a packed holiday week Monday crowd was 4 hrs 55 minutes--we just finished with enough light to see our last putts drop. Weather was epic and a big reason I tied my personal best score ever at Rustic. It was 70 degrees with no wind--just perfect golf weather. Was joined by 2 nice singles that were bombers--had so much fun today. I paid $22.00 which is there twilight rate walking Monday through Thursday.

The fairways at Rustic are semi-lush with some roll out. Rated 7/10.

The rough just outside the fairways are clumpy, sometimes bare, sometimes nice rough--a bit inconsistent--Rustic gives you plenty of room to bomb it so it gives the course some more "Rustic" character. Rated 6/10.

Greenside rough in most spots very nice and lush. Rated 8/10.

The tees are mostly all level and in good shape. Rated 7.5/10

The greens are in awesome shape. Maybe rolling close to a 10.5 on the stimp, not to many ballmarks present. Rating the greens a 8/10. They are firming up on approach shots that do not contain spin or height.

Was not in any bunkers.

Rode the Blues yesterday afternoon 11/10/2017 at 12:25pm on the second round of a all day play Underpar voucher for $60.00. Joined by my buddies Matt and Nickesquire for a POP of 4 hrs 30 minutes waiting behind multiple groups. The group in front of us had a player swinging and missing on several tee shots and a junior in the cart that was not playing that was rolling down hills, walking in bunkers and not leaving the green areas with her father chasing after her while we were waiting to hit--must have been a holiday--lol.

I last played here in 2008 for the GK/PLGA event when the Q-school guys were there that week. I remember the course just like it was then--a very fun and challenging layout. I actually prefer the Legends layout more but this golf course is very similar other than maybe not as many severe doglegs. Still enough teeth on tee shots, undulating greens and rough to keep any skill level honest.

The greens were a step up from the Legends course. I rated them a 7.5/10. Rolling very nicely--very few ballmarks, undulating and holding iron approaches nicely. For both courses if you are short sided here the way the green complexes are and the rough is you are really going to be working to save your par's.

The fairways were in good to great shape. Would rate them just a step below Legends at an 8/10. Mostly green and lush lies--very few to no problem areas.

The tees like the Legends course were semi-lush to lush and mostly all level. Rated 7.5/10

The rough was similar to Legends maybe not as punitive as far as length. Maybe 1.5/2 inches thick, lush and green. Rated 8/10

The bunkers were hard packed and the worst part of the course. Was in the par 5 greenside bunker on #16 in 2 shots --club bounced pretty bad with little to no sand. Rated 6/10.

I would recommend the Champions course at this time.
Rode the Blues yesterday 11/10/2017 for the 1st round of the day on an unlimited Underpar voucher for $60.00 that included range balls, drink and cart. Played with my buddies Nick and Matt in 4 hrs 15 minutes teeing off at 7am and not having to wait on one shot. Cold tee off at 47 degrees warming up to around low 60's by the completion of the 1st round.

Legends and Champions has a nice big grass range, separate large chipping and putting areas and a nice huge clubhouse which is currently under renovation right now so groups are checking in below by the cart barn. Staff was professional and starter was nice. We had a quick lunch--prices affordable--I had the Turkey wrap which was tasty.

I had never played the Legends course before and I was blown away by the beauty and the layout--I loved the various doglegs and scenery that the course provided--it flowed really nicely--seemed to be a little tighter on the front with a little more room on the back. Would not call it target golf but there is for sure doom on every driver and iron shot if you are crooked with many hazards. It seemed to favor the left to right ball flight off the tee some which was perfect for our group.

The fairways I thought were in incredible shape rated an 8.5/10. Very green and lush and mowed just right--no problem areas at all.

The rough was very lush, green, maybe 2 inches lining the fairways--you were not getting much roll if you were in the rough. It could make wedges and irons more difficult and you really had to concentrate on if you had a flier lie or if you needed to dig down deeper to make great contact. Rated 8.5/10

The greens for the most part rolled decently--I thought the greens were just a step down from Champions only in that there were a couple greens on some shorter par 4's in the middle of the round that contained some old pitch mark damage and fungus that made a couple of our putts bounce--I think Nick had a putt that was going in the hole--bounced a foot off the ground and went offline. Overall they were not bad and I am rating them maybe a 7/10.

The tees were semi-lush to lush and most all teeing grounds were level. 7.5/10.

The sand was below average and was too firm in most places. I was only in one bunker on Legends and had no issues getting out but my playing partners had a lack of sand on this course. Rated 6/10.

Layout for me was a 8.5/10--I would return in a heartbeat to play Legends especially for $30.00 with a cart on a holiday rate day--recommended.
Walked the blues this morning 11/5/2017 at 11:30am on a rare Sunday golf day for me. Got a great promo code rate of $24.00--ditched the free cart and joined a nice threesome on the tee an hour before my tee time. POP was 4 hrs 20 minutes on a beautiful mid 60's day with a 1-2 club breeze for most of the round.

Had not been out for a couple of months here. The greens have almost fully recovered from their punch around a month ago--should show green status on the maintenance alert. They were rolling fairly pure--not perfect but adequate. Holding irons very softly with dug in ballmarks. Greens contained a few extra ballamarks per hole. I would say in maybe a week or so they will be back in even better shape. Today's rating 7/10

The fairways were semi-lush with just enough coverage I would say. Rated 7/10.

Tees nice and level and lush and in good shape. Rated 7.5/10

Bunkers contained nice fluffy rakes sand. 8/10.

Rough outside of cart path lost ball--rough just lining fairways lush, thick and green and in very healthy shape. 8/10.

Felt like I was stealing candy from a baby playing here for $24.00 with the option to ride on a late weekend morning.

Walked the blues (71.6/128/6628) this morning 10/30/2017 at 11:20am with my buddy Matt joined by two nice singles Ray and Bob. Weather was perfect golf weather high 60's little to no wind. POP was pretty brutal for a late Monday morning at 5 hours--didn't help that a foursome 2 groups ahead of everyone split up as 2 twosomes with a packed tee sheet. We paid $29.00 which is their mid-day walking rate Monday through Thursday. Very nice staff checking us in, very nice putting green similar to greens on course, nice separate chipping area and basically a dirt range.

The greens were in great shape, rolling true with no bounces and holding shots nicely. I barely saw any extra divots today to fix. Would say they were semi-quick maybe rolling a 10.5 or so on the stimp. Rating 8/10

The fairways are still semi-lush with good overall coverage. Rated 7/10

The tees are mostly all level and in good shape. Rated 7.5/10

The greenside rough is in good shape, mostly green and lush and thick. The fairway rough just off the fairways remains a mixed bag---get further off the fairways near the cartpaths and you could have a bare dirt or hardpan lie. Greenside rough rating 7.5/10--fairway rough 6/10.

Sand was in good shape, raked and just enough sand in the two greenside bunkers that I was in today.

Always a pleasure to play Rustic, fun, challenging and reasonably priced.
Out again at Soule Park this morning 10/16/2017 teeing off at 9:52am just in front of a HS girls CIF playoff. Rode the Orange Tees with my buddy Mack and his buddy Ricki and Brian. It was so hot today with temps ending our round around 100 degrees that we lost a player after 9 holes--one of the hotter mid October days that I can remember. POP was 4 hrs not having to wait on one shot.

Not much has changed condition wise since I played out here 9 days ago with buddies other then the greens were even rolling better today.

Greens very soft, receptive to irons with spin. Very little ballmarks to be fixed today. Would say maybe a 9-10 on the stimp. In very good shape. Rated 7.5/10--maybe closer to 8/10.

Fairways for the most part have full coverage with lush green grass--very few problem areas. Rated 7.5/10.

Bunkers contained some nice darker clay lake raked sand. Rated 7/10.

Some tees need leveling--number #5 comes to mind. For the most part lush very filled in nice teeing grounds. Rated 7/10.

Get off the fairways and the rough is a mixed bag of thin lies, dirt, lush grass or even some dirt areas between holes. Rated 6/10.

Their walking rates are a great deal--its gets hot out here so if you can pick a day where its not to hot this place is for sure recommended.
First time out here in 10 months walked the Oak Tees(72.8-128-6806) joined by my buddies Pedro and Matt yesterday afternoon 10/7/2017 teeing off at 2:30pm twilight finishing at 6:35pm for a POP of 4 hrs 5 minutes not waiting on one shot on a very hot October day with temps around 93 degrees at teeoff. Had a weird swirling wind for the first 7 holes or so that died down on the back nine. It was so beautiful today on the back nine--we saw a total of 2 groups and felt like we owned the course and had the place to ourselves. We paid their standard twilight walking weekend rate of $27.00.

Their is a new management company that took over from York management in June. I think you should check Soule out as this is the nicest that I have seen the course after a hot summer.

The fairways were surprisingly lush with most lies being very green and good with good coverage. Very few problem areas. Rating the fairways a solid 7.5/10.

The greens were in pretty nice shape. No bounces rolling very true. I thought based on the way they looked that they were going to be really fast but they rolled around medium speed. I fixed a couple extra ballmarks per hole. Tournament players that went out in the morning in front of us must not wanted to bend down and take the time to fix their ballmarks. Greens rated a 7/10.

The tees were lush but a couple of them need leveling here. Rated 6.5/10

Was in 3 greenside bunkers that contained a firmer packed darker brownish sand. All bunkers were raked. Rated 6.5/10

The rough and edges around the fairways were rated a 6.5/10--could be lush, spotty or just OK.

If the management can keep the fairways and greens at least to this standard they are going to do great. I was impressed. They are also doing a complete renovation of the clubhouse which was empty. Looked like they replaced some mats on the range.

Great Gil Hanse layout--fun, great prices and great views.

For sure recommended at this time.
Walked the blues (128-71.6-6634) yesterday 10/2/2017 1st twilight group off at 2pm with my buddy Mack and his buddies Ricki and Brian. We paid $22.00 which is their mid-day walking rate Monday through Thursday. Nice staff at check-in. Weather was in the high 70's, low 80's with about a 1 to 2 club wind on first few holes on front nine and dying down for the remainder of the round. POP was 4 hrs 15 minutes.

The greens here yesterday were just awesome--really starting to firm up putting wise especially on downhillers and sidehillers. Still holding higher trajectory irons with spin. I fixed a couple extra ball marks each hole but for the most part the greens were in great shape. Rated 8.5/10 and the highlight of the course.

The fairways are still in very good shape for Rustic's standards--semi lush with just very few problem areas. Great lies and doing a good job with watering them. Rated 7/10

The tees were lush, beautiful and level. Some par 3's need divot mix filled in. Rated 8/10

Was in pot mini sand bunker greenside on #12 trying to drive the green--it contained newer beach sand that was wet and raked.

The rough greenside is in very nice shape--like previous reviewers stated the further you get off the fairways the more the name"Rustic Canyon" comes into play. Greenside rough rating 8/10--fairway rough is hard to rate--you could have a lush lie or be on hardpan.

I love the back nine here--its one of my favorite back nine's in all of Ventura County.

Highly Recommended.
Was invited out again by my brother in law today 9/25/2017 at 11am for a scramble shotgun tournament run by the Gardena/Carson YMCA. Was joined by Pedro, Brandon and Andrew-awesome group to play with. Our POP was 5 hours enjoying our day on this private track not being pushed nor pushing anyone. Weather was sunny, breezy and 80 degrees--great golf weather. Enjoyed the day shooting a 60 as a team--4th place out of 29 teams--winning score was a 53(head scratcher and eyebrows raised).

The Old Ranch course has a beautiful clubhouse with ample restaurant space and we enjoyed breakfast, a box lunch before the round and nice sit down dinner afterwards. Range was big using AstroTurf. They had a nice putting green and a separate chipping area next to the range. Staff and servers were friendly. Carts did not provide GPS but were nice.

2nd time here in the last 6 months and the conditions were even in better shape this time out.

The greens were in very nice shape--just a shade of topdressing showing but did not effect speed of putts as the greens were lightening fast for the way they looked. Holding irons very nicely with spin and height. I thought they were the highlight of the course. Rated 8/10.

The fairways were lusher this time around--would call them lush to semi lush with some green and brown spots mixed in but mostly green. Very nice lies. Rated 7.5/10.

The tees were lush, green and were mostly all level. Tees were soft and your feet could sink down some on some tees. Most of the par 3 tees had all there divots filled in. Rated 7.5/10

Was in one bunker that contained nicely raked beach sand in good shape.

The rough was tough. It was not that long but it was Bermuda and your ball could sit down just an inch to an inch and a half and cause problems with chipping and full shots. Rated 8/10.

This course will not blow you away but I think it has a nice mix of doglegs, straight away holes, water features, traps, mounds and OB to keep it interesting and semi-challenging.

We got a interesting experience today with some Blue Angel planes taking off and practicing at the nearby airport/airbase literally right above our head--scared the living daylights out of us--very cool felt like we had the best seat at an airshow.

Would recommend this private course to any golfer .
