Out this afternoon 10/12/2020 teeing off at 1pm with buddies and GK Gurus Pedro7170, JohnnyGK and Barkydog1! We rode the Blue tees on a warm afternoon this afternoon and had a blast.

Driving range was open on grass, putting and chipping green was open along with the bunker area below adjacent to the driving range. COVID-19 masks to be worn in the pro-shop.

Fairways were in above average shape with nice padding in most areas, some wet areas and some thinner areas thrown in here or there. Overall they were serviceable and nice to play off of. One thing of note here is you can be in the fairway especially on the front nine with a tough stance with your feet above or below the ball so you have to adjust accordingly. Fairway rating 7/10.

I think our group was disappointed with the greens. First the good they looked decent and held shots very nicely that had spin and were high trajectory and were soft. The bad news is I think they recently had maintenance done on them and were very bumpy putting wise. I would personally give the greens a week or so to be cut, rolled and hopefully they will be smoother in the near future. Current green rating 5/10

Was not in any bunkers but boy did they look nice! Great job on the bunker renovation! Playing partners were in many bunkers and they described them as newer soft fluffy pancake sand.

Tee boxes were mostly lush and level, some you needed to hunt to find a level stance and there was some divot damage on some of the par 3's. Rated 6.5/10

Rough was at times super lush lining the fairways to some thinner spots here and there. Rated 6/10.

Enjoy the challenge here. I look at the course this way if your driver is on there are many score able holes. If your tee ball is off there are big numbers to be had on mostly every hole especially on the front nine.

Thanks to Tierra Rejada and Johnny for having us out!
Walked the back tees this afternoon 10-5-2020 teeing off at 1pm joined by a twosome who was riding. Had not played the Vineyard layout since Jan of 2018. Weather was around 80 degrees when we teed off and the back nine it got cooler and we had about a 1 club wind for most of the day that made the temps even nicer. POP was 4 hrs 15 minutes. Most of the courses in the area today were either punching, recently punching within the last couple weeks or closed down today for maintenance. The sister Lakes course which I enjoy just recently punched so gave Vineyard a try today. Vineyard punched on 9-8-2020.

Typical COVID masks warn in proshop, no ballwashers, pins left in with foam. Driving range on mats open and putting green open. Super friendly staff at check-in.

The fairways were in good shape. Mostly lush lies today. Course plays a little longer from the back tees than its 6700 yds due to thicker fairway grass. I was very impressed with the fairways. Rated 7.5/10

Tees were mostly level and very lush and in good shape. Rated 7/10.

Was in 3 greenside bunkers that were semi damp but played very nicely with ample sand underneath. Rated 7/10

Rough was lush, mainly uniform but in some spots just off the fairways you could encounter a thicker kikuyu lie which the fairway grass and tees are(kikuyu). Rated 7/10

The greens still need some time to heal so the current yellow alert is accurate. Its been almost a month since they punched on 9/8/2020 but saw the majority of putts from our group wobble and bump towards the hole. I did feel that the greens were super soft and receptive to irons which were nice. I am spoiled by how nice I remember River Ridge greens in the past especially the Lakes course. Rating 6/10

Layout is both fun here and challenging at the same time. Several longer par 3's and 4's and you have to deal with the usual Oxnard wind. Had a good round going till I got to the 18th island hole playing 200+ with a back pin and had to do the mat of shame walk and record my double there(lol) by dumping one in the H2O.

Would recommend the Vineyard Course for the tees, fairways, rough at this time. Might want to give the greens at least a week to heal and maybe be rolled.

Thanks to the RiverRidge staff for having me out.
Walked the blues this afternoon 10/3/2020 for a 9 hole playing lesson teeing off at 3:50pm. Course was packed so great to see Rustic thriving here in Ventura County.

The course is in incredible shape. I have been playing here since the 1st week they opened and I can't remember the fairways ever being this lush and nice. Perfect padded lies. Rated 8.5/10.

Greens were in fabulous condition. Quick, firm and true. Maybe a 10 or 11 on the stimp. Rated 8.5/10.

Tees super lush, mostly level and minimal damage on the par 3s. Rated 8/10.

Greenside rough is lush, beautiful easy 9/10.

Fairway rough improved some but still spots of thin lush and hard pan areas here and there. Rated 6.5/10.

Got to test some bunkers out with my student. They have improved many of the bunkers here.

I walked 10 and 11 by myself just before dark and the back nine looked just as nice as the front.

Would highly recommend Rustic right now. Its in fabulous shape.
Walked the blues today teeing off at 1240pm joined by a nice 3 ball. Weather was low 70s with about a 10mph breeze. Got to use the ample practice area for a couple minutes before teeing off. Super friendly staff. POP 4 hours.

Covid19 bathrooms open next to trailers where you check in. They ask you to wear a mask as you pay at the trailer. No rakes in bunkers, plastic inserts in cups. Looks like on site Marshall was raking bunkers in between groups on many bunkers which I thought was cool and a nice touch.

Fairways here are some of the best in the county at this time. Lush with great lies and still rollout on low trajectory drives. Rated 8/10.

Greens were holding shots beautifully and rolling very nicely. Weird to have hole 13 green punched and the only hole that was punched but all other greens were in great shape. Rated 8/10.

Tees were level , lush and are always in great shape. Rated 8.5/10.

Was not in any of the bunkers.

Rough inside the cart paths was in great shape. Super green and lush and mainly uniform. Outside the cart paths enter and hit at your own risk if you can find it. Rated 8/10.

If you want to escape the heat Ventura , Oxnard, Santa Barbara is your call. Olivas is such a great layout and is currently in great shape. Highly recommended.
Walked the blues this morning 8/31/2020 at 9:15am joined by a nice single and twosome. We had some nice cool foggy British open conditions the first 7 holes which gave way to beautiful sunshine and light breeze on the back nine. Chamber of commerce day for Moorpark. Very friendly staff at Rustic. Nice shape putting green and they have a nice chipping area with a bunker adjacent to the driving range. Have not rode here in a while but looks like they might have recently added a new GPS system to the carts. Our POP was 4 hours 25 minutes behind a packed tee sheet.

Covid19 insert foam in pins, no ball washers, restaurant open for window pickup and no rakes in the bunkers.

Most noticable difference from my last round was how improved the fairways are. Most sections are semi lush to lush and the grass is thicker than it usually is this time of year with the heat we have been having, Kudos to the crew. Nice lies in the fairways today. Rated 7.5/10.

Greens rolling in very nice shape. Holding most irons, receptive yet like most greens at Rustic you want to be below the hole. Would say maybe a 10 on the stump. Rated 8/10.

Drove it into right fairway bunker on 3 and bombed it into greenside bunker on 7. Both bunkers firm but easy to get out of. Rated 7/10.

Tees are really nice here fairly level and super lush. Rated 8/10.

Greenside rough you are a beauty, thick lush and manicured to just the right height Rated 9/10

Fairway rough is mostly dry, inconsistent but playable. Rated 6/10

Of note they are doing a watering project on the fringes on holes 11, 13,15 and 17 where the fringes were just soaked. Looks like they punched the fringes with little holes as well.

The greens, fairways, tees and greenside rough are in very good shape. Love coming to my home course. Highly recommended.
Rode the blues for 36 wonderful holes today with my buddy RGM2525. Always fun playing with Ron. Weather was perfect all day starting out in the low 70's and finishing around 80 degrees with a nice 1-2 club breeze mid way through the first round. Our POP was just over 3 hours for each round waiting on a couple groups and getting waived through on a couple groups on the 2nd round. We pounded a few balls for a couple minutes on the all grass driving range, holed a few putts and we were off. Super nice staff at Purisma as always.

Greens were very soft and very receptive and putted beautiful and smooth. Seen the greens quicker but they were in great shape. Rated 8/10. Very little to no ballmarks.

Fairways were mostly lush and in great shape. Couple of the fairways closer to the green say 20 yds away had some burn spots. Overall very impressed with the fairways. Rated 8/10.

Rough is very lush and as always rough in spots like it should be. Rated 7.5/10.

Tees lush, fairly level and in good shape. 7.5/10

Bunkers contained beach like sand. Crusty on the top with most bunkers having plenty of sand underneath. Rated 7/10.

Love the challenge here. Still my favorite course in the area. Would highly recommend.
Walked the Blues this afternoon just before 2pm joined by my buddy Matt and MrKich(Matt). Great fun round with both Matt's! We had weather in the 70's with a light breeze and semi-humid conditions. Wanted to commend Olivas's staff getting us out to play without a tee time on a jammed packed Monday. Golf is in full swing here in Ventura with temps in the 100's in the Valley's. We had ample time to practice on their large driving range, putting green and chipping green. POP was 4 hours 20 minutes. COVID-19 no rakes in bunkers, no ballwashers, pins with plastic inserts half way down the cup.

Beautiful stellar conditions at Olivas.

Fairways very lush, great shape perfect lies. Rated 8.5/10

Tees super lush, mowed down perfectly. Level and in great shape. 8.5/10

Was not in any of the bunkers so can't rate em.

Rough lush, beautiful and nicely maintained just off the fairways. Rated 8.5/10

Fringes were beautiful and in great shape, easy to putt from.

Greens super soft, rolling fairly smooth with just a little bump. Rated 7/10.

Highly recommend getting out to Olivas for a round.
Walked the Blues this afternoon 8/3/2020 at 1:50pm with John, Ron and Sal(very nice to meet you Sal!). POP was just over 4 hours with temps in the mid 70's with a slight breeze.

COVID-19 precautions included no rakes, foam insert in cups, no ballwashers and masks in the pro-shop. Range was open with mats and looks like they are re sodding the putting green. Friendly staff inside the pro-shop including friendly starter on hole 1.

Greens were the highlight of the course putting and rolling very smoothly. Hardly any ballmarks to be found. Loved the greens and they looked like they might have just been rolled. They were receptive to shots with a high trajectory and spin. Rating the greens a solid 8 bordering on a 8.5.

Fairways were semi-lush and have improved some since my last round. Some very minor wet spots and a few dry spots but overall playable and decent. Rated 7/10

Tees mostly level and lush. Couple tees you had to hunt for a level stance but overall in above average shape. Rated 7/10

Was in greenside bunker on 7 that was nicely raked with a perfect amount of sand to splash out of. Rating this bunker 7/10

Rough was thick in most spots but manageable. Rated 7/10.

Even though I played well not my favorite layout. Only 3 par 5's is a minus in my book. I do love the back nine here. 16/17/18 are fun holes to finish on.

Conditions were good today and the greens were in the best shape I have ever seen them. I would recommend Sterling Hills right now. Above average conditions in most facets of the golf course and great green conditions.
Out this morning 8/3/2020 at Soule Park joined by buddies Pedro, Johnny and Ron at 7:20am. Rode the Oak Tees in about 4 hrs 15 minutes with beautiful morning weather turning a bit hot on the back nine. Think we were the last group right before their senior men's club.

Covid-19 precautions included no rakes in bunkers, foam inserts in cups and masks needing to be worn in pro-shop and just outside when ordering food. Restaurant was open for outdoor seating and we had burgers for lunch which were delicious. Mats on driving range, nice big putting green and a separate chipping green. Always super friendly staff and looking at their rates online this is probably the best bang for your buck in Ventura County.

Conditions were fantastic.

Greens were rated an 7.5 out of 10 closer maybe to an 8/10. Very nice receptive soft surfaces with some ball mark damage on some of the front pin placement areas. Last 2 greens had more ballmarks than usual. Overall though very nice shape.

Fairways were an 8/10 bordering on a 8.5/10. I would say Olivas Links and Soule Park have the nicest fairways in Ventura County. If you are in the fairway you will find a green emerald lush lie.

Tees mostly level and lush with just some minor divot damage. Rated 8/10. They re sodded the back tee box on number 4 and it looks and plays great.

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

Bunkers here are beautiful. Was in just one greenside bunker on 3 that was raked and contained perfect sand to splash out of. Unfortunately with no rakes walked by many bunkers that had footprints. Rating the bunker that I was in a 8.5/10.

Absolutely love the layout here. Peaceful golf with some birdie holes like 4,5,9, 11 and 18 and some tough holes like 6 and 8. Fun course to let the driver rip and some challenging big green complexes with some potato chip swales.

Architect Gil Hanse has a beauty here and Keith and his staff have really shined in keeping up this beauty.

Highly recommended.
Walked the Blues late morning 7/27/2020 teeing off at 11:50am joined by Matt and Ken. POP was 4 hrs 20 minutes behind a packed tee sheet. Weather was mid 80's with a slight breeze.

Tees were excellent lush, mostly all level. Rated 8/10.

Fairways were semi-lush with some run out. Rated 7/10

Greens were soft, receptive and I would say a 10 on the stimp. Rolling very nicely. Still have foam inserts half way down cup due to COVID-19.

Greenside rough is super lush and beautiful just outside the fringes 9/10

Fairway rough is dry and spotty and generally thin with a few lush spots here and there. Rated 6/10

They just punched the back nine fringes with holes but it didn't bother play much.

Was in greenside bunker just left of 3 pin that had harder compact sand that was still easy to blast out of.

Just love coming out here for the unique challenge that is Rustic Canyon. Love my home course. Recommended.
Walked the blacks today 7/20/2020 around 12:40pm joined by Gary and Dina a super nice couple and Austin(a Div 1) golfer who was so fun to watch. Look for his name in the pro/mini tour ranks in the next several years. Had a great time today with a pretty steady 1-2 club wind which is normal for out here and nice temps in the mid 70's. POP was almost 4 hrs 30 minutes. Olivas really does have wonderful welcoming staff and a great practice area. They fit Austin and myself into a jammed tee sheet. Also appreciate the 10 minute tee off intervals

Greens were rolling very nicely today with a little more pace than my last round here. Very receptive to irons. Fixed a extra couple of ballmarks. Rating the greens a 7.5/10 today.

Fairways are lush to very lush and in great shape which they always are out here in the summer. Rated 8.5/10

Was not in any sand bunkers today but playing partners were and described the sand as super soft beach sand. There were a ton of footprints that I saw walking by the bunkers. But with COVID rules and no rakes not much you can do.

Tee boxes were super lush, level and in great shape. Rated 8.5/10

Rough just lining the fairways was nice and thick and lush. Anything outside the cartpaths here is big trouble unless you find a dry spot. Rating 8/10.

Love the layout here. #11 and #13 make the blacks tougher than average holes. Hit a 4 wood on number 13 to 20 feet today(par 3 that was playing 240 with a back pin into a 15-20 mph wind).

I would highly recommend Olivas Links to all golfers. Recommend booking a tee time as the course is very busy.

Thanks to Olivas Links for a great time!
Got out last night for a quick 9 holes walking the blues on the front nine with my buddies Pedro and Matt. We teed off just after 6pm and finished with the sun setting. Beautiful weather in the mid 70's with a slight breeze.

The greens are firmer and in great shape since my last round out here. Fixed an extra couple ball marks but they rolled beautifully. Receptive towards high shots with spin. Rated 8/10

Fringes were mown tight, semi firm and in good shape.

Fairways were semi-lush, mostly green and in good shape. Plenty of roll for low ball flight players even with semi-lush conditions. Rating 7/10

Tees mostly level and very nice and lush. Rated 8/10

Was in greenside bunker pin high left on 3 that contained firmer sand but enough sand to easily splash out of. Bunkers here are firmer than most courses. Rated 7/10.

Greenside rough just beautiful and lush in most spots(8/10). Fairway rough decent, some lush spots, some thinner spots(6/10).

Greens, Tees, Fairways, Fringes and Greenside rough are in great shape right now. Highly recommend a play right now.
