Rode the Blacks this morning 6/17/2019 around 10:40am with John, Ron and Wendy(great people to play with if you ever get the chance to). We had a super time on a beautiful day for golf with just a little bit of wind on the back nine and mid 70 temps. POP was 4 hours 45 minutes with no waiting on the front and some waiting on the back nine.
Had not been out here in 14 months. This course is in good shape and in much better shape today than my previous rounds out here. Lee Harlow and his staff are doing a great job with this course and I would recommend that you go play Sterling Hills now.
The greens were in very good shape, hardly any ballmarks rolling medium to fast pace with a nice smooth roll. Some of the green complexes have some potato chip swales and undulations which I love and makes putting here fun and challenging. They can tuck some of the back pins in challenging places on some of these bigger green surfaces. Rating the greens an 8/10.
The fairways were really nice and pretty much the most improved area on this course. Just awesome great coverage with your ball sitting up nicely. Did not see any bare spots. Fairway rating 8/10.
Tees were very lush, some of the teeing grounds were unlevel but were big enough that you could always find a level spot. Rating 7/10.
Was in greenside bunker on #18 that was well raked and easy to hit out of.
Rough looked to be uniform, semi-lush and in good shape with few problem areas.
Would love to see one more par 5 out here. I love courses with 5 par 5's and Sterling Hills only has 3 of them with two of them being the last 2 holes. They have some scoring holes out here like 4, 7, 9, 16 and 18 and some hang on tougher holes like 3, 14 and 17.
Staff here was super friendly, they have a range, huge putting green and with the cooler temps in Camarillo, current nice shape of the course and the new GK coupon I can see this course getting a lot of play.

Got in a morning round this morning 6/3/2019
walking with my buddy Matt, joined by a nice single Justin. Weather was perfect, POP 4 hours 5 minutes.
Golf course is just in fabulous shape.
The fairways are green, lush, padded and still provide some roll out. Nicest I have seen the fairways in some time.
The greens were in good shape, rolling medium paced. Very few ball marks, those seen were fixed by our group.
Tees were level, lush and in great shape.
Greenside rough is in perfect shape.
Was not in any bunkers but they looked and were described by my playing partners as firm.
Staff is always great here, they are really doing a great job with this course. I think they have a qualifier out here on Thursday and those guys are going to love the shape its in.
Highly recommended--go play.» Close

Played today 5/28/2019 at the Inn. I can see why this used to be a former Senior PGA tour stop. When you drive in the grounds you feel special. Hallowed grounds knowing that Trevino, Palmer, etc hit tee shots here. This is a shot makers course that is both scenic, fun and challenging.
The conditions were just terrific.
The greens were rolling medium paced, pure and held all shots that were high or had spin coming in on them. I rarely find greens where I am not fixing an extra ball mark or two. Green complexes range from a couple small ones to some big complexes with some swales and undulation. Love the greens here. Rated 8.5/10
The fairways and rough are just in fantastic shape. Fairways had perfect green lies and rough was semi-penal but still easy to hit out of. Greenside rough looked to be mowed down. I remember playing here years ago where you did not want to be in the greenside rough. Rating for fairways and rough was close to a 9/10.
Tees were level for the most part, I saw some divot damage on the par 3's--tee rating 8/10,
Was not in any bunkers but they looked firmer.
Don't let the shorter front nine fool you--once you get to number 14 you really start playing some golf on 16, 17 and 18.
My only gripe today was they did not have the back tee box open on number 18 which I think is one of the tougher tee shots on the course. I also think its the best shot on the course.
The staff here treated me like gold, awesome place to take the wife for lunch as well.
Can't recommend this place enough. Great course!» Close

Rode the Golds today with buddies Nickesquire1 and RGM2525 as well as Mike who was a pleasure to meet and play with. Our POP was around 4 hrs 20 minutes. Weather was raining on our first tee shot of the day and then cleared up with a slight 10 mph wind or so on the back nine. You can always count on Santa Barbara weather to be pretty nice even on a sketchy forecast.
This is my second favorite course that I have played in California. It has some length from the Gold's at 6700. It has a couple tough par 3's, some shorter fun par 4's and a couple tough par 4's. Some nice dogleg left's and rights and a great stretch of holes from 10 to 14. Number 5 and Number 13(both par 5's) are a blast to play.
The greens here are always usually the highlight and they did not disappoint today. Being underneath the hole is key on this layout especially on green complexes like 1, 3 and 18. Greens held great today, putted true and were a treat. They have some big green complexes here so a 3 putt is always lurking. Rated 8.5/10
Fairways were beautiful, lush with great padding. Great coverage today and even with the rain to start the round they drained very well. Rated 8.5/10
Rough was lush, thick in most spots but still fairly easy to get a good strike on. Rated 8/10.
Was in greenside bunkers on 11 and 18 which contained soft brown sand that had just enough sand to splash out easy. Rated 7.5/10
Tees were really nice, bordering on the 9/10 range. Level, great coverage, hardly any divots.
Would highly recommend playing Sandpiper, great layout and its in great shape. If you like Ocean views your in for a treat.» Close

Rode the blues Saturday 5/4/2019 at 2:27pm with my buddy Matt. POP for 27 holes was around 5 hours. Great staff, great practice facilities and we used a promo code on Teeoff.com for 21 bucks.
This golf course is in great shape. It has a soft spot in my heart as this is where I took my PAT.
When the course first opened the rough outside the cartpaths was US Open rough. It is at least that outside of the cart paths in spots and even higher at present time. It is both breathtaking(wildflowers) and I think makes this course that much better and tougher. The rough just outside the fairways(inside the cart paths) was uniform, green, lush and beautiful. Rated 8.5/10.
The greens were the best I have seen them in years. I was so impressed by the greens. They putted medium to fast speed holding irons like darts. Rated 8/10
The tees were healthy, lush and all level. Great shape 8/10
The fairways were healthy, lush, green and in good shape. Rated 8/10
Was in 1 bunker left greenside on number 6 that was in great shape, raked with the perfect amount of sand. Bunkers are always usually in great shape here.
Highly recommend Olivas Links» Close
