Walked the Orange Tees this afternoon 5/9/22 at 1:20pm with my buddy Matt with about a club wind on the front nine and around 70 degrees perfect day for golf. Pop was 4 hrs behind a mini lady's tourney. They just played the front and we flew around on the back nine as a twosome.

Very friendly/professional golf staff in the shop. The restaurant/bar is completed and it looks beautiful. Range on mats/nice sized putting green with a seperate chipping/bunker area behind the 18th green.

Man driving in you can see what great shape Soule is in. They had a women's open qualifier here recently and they really have the tees, fairways and rough super lush and beautiful. The fairways are in the 9. 5/10 range like butter. Perfect Palm Springs lies. Rough is lush 2 to 3 inches lining the fairways and in beautiful shape 8.5/10. Tees lush and mainly level 8.5/10. Greens were rolling medium speed today. Some of the greens were browning in areas as I'm sure they had them rolled and smooth for the ladies event. They held shots and rolled beautiful 8/10. Was in bunker on 17 that had perfectly raked sand. All the bunkers have white fluffy pancake material . Rated 8.5/10.

I recently played North Ranch and Saticoy CC and this course right now is right up there with these conditions. Probably the best maintained public course right now in the area.

Highly recommended.

Played the Oaks/Valley combo this morning 5/2/22 in a shotgun start at 11am as a part of the Yarrow Family Ymca tournament. We started on Oaks 8. Weather was chamber of commerce in Westlake Village 70 degrees with about a club a wind.

First time playing here and it reminded me of some Holes at Sherwood CC which I have walked numerous times. I really enjoyed the Lakes layout. Many Holes here are tee off either above or below canyons. Lots of fun sight lines. Would categorize some of the Holes on the Oaks nine tighter target shoot Holes but nothing tricked up at all. The par 3 7th I believe on the Lakes was beautiful hitting over a majestic lake with waterfalls. Lakes contained more dogleg Holes and Oaks holes were straighter. Really want to come back and try the Valley nine as it looked gorgeous as well. Our group had so much fun today.

The greens were rolling beautiful. Anything high with spin was holding. Anything else was releasing as they were firm if you were coming in low or short sided. Most greens were medium size and had some swales and multi tiered levels to them. A pleasure to putt on and for sure like most greens you wanted to stay below the pin. Rated 8.5/10.

Fairways were in the 8.75/9 out of 10 range. Lush carpet with great lies and very green. Pretty much palm springs great.

Tees were level, lush and in good shape. Rated 9/10.

Group behind us was not pushing us at all so I threw a couple extra balls in some bunkers and man were the bunkers soft and deep and in great shape. Rated 8,75/10

Rough was very green and lush and in great shape. Up to 3 inches and a club grabber for anything say over a 9 iron. Rated 9/10.

If you get an opportunity to play here at all jump on it. Thx to my brother and law and the YFY for the invite.

Walked the blues this afternoon 4/25/22 at 120pm with my buddy Matt joined by a nice single who bailed after 14 Holes. Pop on a busy Monday was 4 hrs 40 minutes under 75 degree weather with a strong 2 club wind at times. A beautiful day for golf.

Have only played out here once since the end of last summer and you can tell the course is transitioning nicely into lusher fairways and rough, lush tee boxes and the greens are just almost completely back from their maintenance several weeks ago.

The biggest difference are the native areas just off the cartpaths. They are gorgeous yellow dandelions and flowers and very lush vegetation that will eat up errant drives like my drive just right of 7 Fairway today. I remember thick vegetation when this course first opened and that's what you have now which is awesome visually and a good test of golf.

Greens were mostly smooth with just a minor bump here and there. Within the next week they will be even better. Rated 7.5/10.

Fairways starting to get to paspullum lushness. Mostly all green and in good shape. I would say Olivas has some of the better Fairways anywhere from May to September. Rated 8/10.

Tees were lush, level and in good shape. Rated 8/10

Was not in any bunkers but my buddy was in greenside bunker on 17 that had perfectly raked sand.

Rough is a nice dormant brown contrast from the emerald green Fairways and in good shape. Rated 7/10.

Looking forward to many summer rounds out here as conditions continue to get better and better as summer approaches.

Highly recommended.

Had the privilege of teeing it up at "The Coy" Monday morning 4/11/22 with the Gk/Golfmoose outing. Joined by 2 fine gentlemen and Gkers I have never met Mark and Kyle. Both good players and very cool people. We enjoyed a good playing pace with just minimal waiting considering it was a big shotgun tournament. We had a 15mph swirling wind that would stop and go throughout the day. I helped John check players in before the round and it was nice to meet some Gkers and golfers in the area ready to take on this great course. Also got to meet Weber at check in which was cool.

Saticoy CC has a elevated driving range that had players on grass this morning. They also have two separate putting greens and a beautiful members only practice area down the hill below adjacent to the 11th hole. All the staff I encountered were friendly and got to meet the GM who appreciated all the social media posts lately.

This was my third time playing here. My first time was in 2009 right before the US Open qualifier and my last time a couple years ago during a Gk guru outing.

Conditions are fantastic at this time. I think my overall rating should be close to a 8.75/9 range.

The greens were softer and more receptive yesterday than my previous rounds here. They were putting pure and around a 10.5 on the stimp. Our group took the time to fix any ballmarks we saw which were few. The greens have a lot of undulations, false fronts and swales. Downhillers need to be stroked with precision and uphillers yesterday could be struck firm. Overall green rating 8.75

Fairways were beautiful lush great lies and padding, Green sod mix provided on the carts. Rating 9/10

Tees were level, lush and beautiful. Rated 9/10

Rough was a very healthy and lush 3 inches. Manageable with wedges or short irons but very easy to grab your club going through. Rated 9/10.

Was in greenside bunker on 11 that contained just enough sand and was raked beautifully. There are numerous bunkers on this layout both Fairway and greenside to avoid at all costs. Rated 8/10.

Layout is a parkland layout that has a variety of everything you would want, Holes 1 and 2 are tight with hole 2 and 17 being a big dogleg left. Than you have big dogleg rights on 12 and 16. Plenty of lateral hazards, OB, bunkers and some hidden water to keep the best of players on their toes, I can see why they have hosted numerous US open qualifiers and an upcoming LPGA event. Members are very blessed that they can sink their teeth into this layout. The oldest private CC in Ventura County. Highly recommended.

Walked the blues this morning 4/4/2022 at 1150am with my buddy Matt joined by a nice twosome Allen and Paul. Pop was around 4 hrs 55 minutes under perfect weather conditions(had a chance to shoot my low at Rustic but 3 putted both 17 and 18 from the fringe for bogeys). Met by friendly staff in the proshop and we were off.

Rustic is in good shape which I would echo on Mark's review.

Greens were medium pace holding shots with spin or with higher trajectory . No ballmarks to fix. Putting pure like butter. 10 green seemed to be quicker than the other greens. Rated 8/10 bordering an 8.5

Fairways had decent to nice coverage with some more green spring grass popping up. Rated 7/10

Greenside rough beautiful emerald green and lush in spots Rated 9/10

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

Was not in any bunkers but most looked firmer and raked.

Fairway rough mowed down tighter and in decent shape. Rated 6.5/10

I love my home course. Highly recommended.

Rode the blues this morning 3/27/22 at 920am playing the Ridgeline/Canyon Crest combo joined by 2 nice guys from North Hollywood. Our Pop was just over 4 hrs with minor waiting on a perfect weather day for golf with about a club of wind and the high reaching 70 in Moorpark today. Hit a few putts and chips and around 20 range balls on their range which was grass today. Friendly proshop staff and starter.

The greens are in very good shape rolling pure. They are punching tomorrow according to Gk. Today they held shots nicely. Rated 8/10

Fairways were very nice to hit off of mostly green and lush padding. Rated 8/10

Tees were in good shape with some if the 3 pars with minor divot damage. Rated 7.5/10

Was not in any bunkers but they looked well groomed and raked.

Rough has a nice visual brown dormant contrast with the emerald green fairways and was easy to play out of. Rated 7.5/10

Love coming here to challenge myself. Recommended.

Walked the blues this morning 3/14/22 at 11:10am with my buddy Matt joining a friendly twosome under beautiful weather conditions in the high 70s with about a 8mph breeze, Pop was just under 4 hrs 30 minutes.

It was great to get back out to my home course after a couple of months not playing here.

The greens were very firm and putting in beautiful shape. Accepting irons with height and spin. Rated 8/10

Tees beautiful lush and level. Rated 8/10

Greeside rough gorgeous lush and green. Great shape 8.5/10

Fairways firm and padded with tons of roll. Links winter style the way the course intended. Rated 6.5/10

Was not in any greenside bunkers but they looked raked and firm walking by them.

Highly recommend Rustic if you are able to secure a tee time.

Rode the combo's today 2/26/2022 with my student Jordan for an 18 hole playing lesson and we were joined by a nice twosome. Pace of play was 5 hrs 15 minutes with a 30 minute frost delay pushing back tee times. Weather was a 10-20 mph wind and around 65 degrees.

The wind these last several weeks to a month have made the greens very quick on downhill putts and chips. They are putting very nicely with minimal bumps and are in good shape. Saw the lines great today. We fixed an extra 2-3 ballmarks on every green. Rated 7.5/10.

I was not in any bunkers nor was my student but the twosome we were playing with were and they looked to be in very nice shape. The redo on the bunkers looked great. Nice fluffy white beach sand.

Tees were mostly level and semi lush. Decent to good shape. Rated 6.5/10.

Fairways were 50/50 lush to thin. Low drives would roll forever. Never a terrible lie on the fairways but for sure in spots some thinner turf. Some of the chipping areas in the fairways were thinner. Rated 6/10

Rough was generally a little lusher than the fairways and you could argue on many holes you would rather be hitting out of the rough. Rated 6.5/10

Enjoy the challenge here. Canyon holes and enough penalty areas to keep the best of players honest. It can get windy here so choose your days wisely. Our group had a blast today.

Walked the blues this morning 2/21/22 with my buddy Matt joining a friendly 2 ball under colder and up to 2 club windy conditions. Our Pop was 4 hrs 50 minutes on a holiday. Never really ever remember seeing a scene in golf on the first tee like we did today? They were running 40 to 50 minutes behind which I guess is understandable as it's a holiday in Socal. What got them behind according to the starter and the murmurs from the 5 groups on the tee box waiting to play was not cool...jamming multiple groups of a men's club in the morning on a holiday morning between regular tee sheet groups??? Anyway we were lucky and joined the 855am group(due to 2 of their players not showing up)teeing off around 940am which was around our tee time but the two guys we were playing with got out about 50 minutes late. It was a circus people trying to cut in front of people. We then had a group that apparently started on hole 14 to avoid the men's club drive up to the first tee and demand to get on the first tee in front of the 5 groups that had already been waiting there for 35-45 minutes. It was amazing we got around in 4hrs 45 minutes pace of play and got off the first tee without fights breaking out. Really felt bad for the starter by the first tee they were totally disorganized.

Always enjoyed the layout here and when I knew later in the week I could play this was the only tee time available for my buddy and I so we booked.

To be honest Camarillo has been hit hard by poor conditions other than the greens which were super quick and beautiful.

Greens were very fast and pure a pleasure to putt on. Downhillers were especially quick. Didn't see to many ballmarks. Perfect combination of holding irons with spin but putting or chipping brutally quick if you were short sided. I don't play here much but these are the nicest I have seen the greens. Rated 8/10

The fairways were embarrassing. Most had portions of Hardpan, thin lies and some even had some 4 leaf clover sections where the fairways used to be? The chipping areas in the Fairways just before the greens were poor as well. My drive on 15 just in front of the green had me sitting down in a bare hole just in front of the green. Rated 4/10

The tees were actually semi lush but most all tees need to be leveled and many contained tons of divots. Hard time finding a level spot. Rated 5/10


Was not in any bunkers so can't rate them. Most looked raked and firm.

Rough was a mix of thin, hardpan, wispy or could be lush all in say a 5 yd area.

The kikuya fringes here were actually in good shape all lush and green and thick. They grab chips pretty quickly so plan accordingly. Rated 7.5/10

Pains me to say for any golf course but can't recommend this one in its current shape. However the layout is fun with some challenging holes and the greens are in very good shape. All in all we had a blast playing the game we love despite the poorer conditions.

Rode the blacks this morning 2/14/22 first out under perfect weather with no wind playing Ridgeline and then Creekside combo. Thanks to the starter for letting me out just before their first tee time which started at 9am. Pop was 2 hrs 10 minutes. Had my best round from the tips which had alot to do with no wind and the course empty.

Greens here are pure, rolling beautiful, holding irons that come in high with spin. If you are short sided or chipping downhill it's tough to get those close. Superintendent should be praised for the condition these greens are in. Rated 8.5/10

Fairways were even more lush than my round here weeks ago. In good shape padding wise and most Fairways are getting green in color. Rated 7.5/10

Tees are level and lush with some a little soggy. Good shape. Rated 8/10

Was not in any bunkers but all looked raked and well groomed.

Rough lining the fairways was nice and green and thick in spots.

Love coming here to challenge myself with ball striking. Strong layout from the tips on Creek and Ridge.

Highly recommend this track and look forward to many more rounds here.

Walked the Oak Tees today joined by a friendly 3 ball. Pop 4 hrs 25 minutes on another beautiful Ojai weather day around 70 degrees with no wind. Teed off couple minutes before 12 noon.

Greens were in fantastic shape. Rolling pure semi quick and in great shape. Rated 8/10

Fairways just enough padding, more thin than lush but decent lies. Tons of roll. I cleared the bunkers on 9 on my drive and my ball ran onto the green with about 30 yds of roll. Fairways 6.5/10.

Tees were level and in good shape. Nice to see the back Tees running again on hole 4 as that area was closed my last couple rounds here. Rated 7/10

Was not in any bunkers but they looked raked and there beautiful beach sand self.

Rough was cut low just longer than the fairways and in decent shape. Rated 6.5/10.

Love me some Soule. Course in the Fairways will only get lusher come spring. Highly recommend this track.

Rode the blues today 2/5/2022 at 12 noon on a glorious weather day for golf. 70 degrees no wind and a POP of 4 hrs 30 minutes. Both the Inn and golf course was thriving today. Such a great setting to play golf. I was joined by a nice single and a nice twosome all riding. All grass range and putting/chipping green down below the range.

Conditions were similar to my round here just before the holidays 6 weeks ago.

Greens were in great shape! True quick greens that rolled pure. Only hole 6 and 8 were a little shaggy but the other 16 greens were in the 8.5 to 9 out of 10 range. Highlight of the course.

Fairways were a mix color wise between green and yellow and had a nice padded base to hit from. Rated 6.5/10

Tees were all level and in good shape. Some of the par 3s on the front had a top dressing of sand which did not effect play. Rated 7/10

Was in 2 greenside bunkers that had darker sand and just enough sand in them. Rated 7/10

Rough was mowed down and in decent shape and playable. Most of the kikuya around the greens that used to be penal looked more manageable. Rated 6.5/10.

Love playing here. Highly recommended. Thanks to Ojai Valley Inn for having me out.
