Walked the Oak Tees Monday 1/10/22 with my buddy Steve and buddy Pedro needing to play the front nine twice to get 18 in just before complete darkness. Couldn't have had a better weather day around 70 degrees with no wind and with the sun setting on our second nine and nobody on the course it was breathtaking some of the sights we saw.
Super friendly staff inside the proshop and the new restaurant if you have not been inside looks awesome. They have a bar area where you can sit outside swivel your chair around and watch people hitting off the first tee.
Soule Park is in good condition for January and how much rain we endured and how cold the Temps get overnight.
Greens in good to great shape rolling pure and smooth. Semi quick holding shots nicely. Several tourneys in front of us so we fixed a couple extra ballmarks we saw. Rated solid 8/10
Fairways 50/50 green to brown all padded with good lies even for winter. Rated 7/10
Tees mostly level and in good shape. Some Tees are in the shade most of the day and are damp. Rated 7/10.
Was in greenside bunker first nine on hole 3 that had beautiful raked beach sand. The greenside bunkers here are beautiful and thick. Rated 8.5/10.
Rough was mowed down, thick in some spots and in decent to good shape. Rated 7/10.
Highly recommended..have fun. Great course» Close

Was able to squeeze one more round in before the rains. Walked the blues on 12/21/21 late morning joining another single and twosome. We had a blast despite the 5 hr pace of play. Great to see my home course thriving with golfers. So happy for Rustic. Weather was perfect low 60s and at times a one club wind..perfect conditions.
Happy to report the course has all its teeth back. Fast and beautiful firm greens, level and lush tee boxes, beautiful greenside rough and firm links fairways with run in them.
How tough were the pins and how firm were the greens.... I had an eagle putt on 1 [back pin] and putted it just off the green as well as an eagle putt on 5 that I knocked 12 feet by. No complaints here greens rolling smooth and in beautiful shape! Rated 8/10.
Tees lush, level and in good shape. Rated 8/10
Greenside rough lush, thick and in beautiful shape. Rated 9/10
Fairways more firm than lush, links style. Need to really compress these guys. Rated 6.5/10.
Was not in any bunkers.
If you like firm and fast conditions this track is for you right now.
Highly recommended! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.» Close

Rode the blues this morning 12/20/2021 with my buddy Pedro teeing off around 10:45am and coming in with a Pop around 4 hours. Thanks to Ojai Valley for having us out. Friendly staff in the proshop and cart staging area, Range was closed this morning due to frost delay but they have an awesome chipping/putting area down the hill just right of the first tee. Weather was ideal around 60 degrees at tee off and no wind the entire day just perfect scoring conditions. The Inn looked packed but not to many golfers on the course. Glad to see the Inn doing well.
Lots of history here with names like Vardon, Hogan, Palmer and Trevino gracing the grounds. Very peaceful setting to play golf especially on the front nine which is shorter and winds its way through a Grove of trees. The back is longer with 3 par 3s over 200 from the blues.
Greens were in beautiful shape other than 6 and 8 which were patchy and bumpy. The other 16 greens were pristine, quick and rolling beautiful. Holding shots nicely. For sure the star of the course. Rated 8.5/10
We never had a bad lie in the Fairways but they were more firm than lush and were very playable. Rated 7/10
Tees were level with minimal damage on the par 3s, Rated 7/10
Rough was cut very low almost the height of the fairways and was more thin than lush. Good shape. Rated 7/10.
Was not in any Fairway bunkers but was in 2 greenside bunkers that were raked and had nice fluffy sand on the top and firmer underneath. Good shape rated 7/10.
Always enjoy my rounds here. Don't let the 6300 yds fool you from the tips. 3 tough par 3s and a couple tough par 4s. Love playing here and with the great Soule Park so close getting 36 in on a summer day is the call if you are close to Ojai. Recommended.» Close

Rode the purple tees 12/12/2021 with Pedro, Ron and Rob in 3 hrs 50 minutes behind a Sr PGA tournament. Front nine behind the tourney took 2 hrs 40 minutes and we hauled butt playing speed golf on the back nine in 1 hrs 5 minutes just finishing. We had perfect weather.Great playing with Rob and great putt on number 4 dude.
3rd time playing Firecliff which is a great test of golf with just beautiful conditions throughout. There range and the Mountain view course was closed. We had some time to chill before our round and I sampled there chicken breast wrap which I can recommend. The staff at Desert Willow was great and accommodating.
The greens were very firm and quick and probably double rolled for the tournament right ahead of us. They rolled in beautiful shape. You needed to have spin and be coming in high to hold irons. If you did they held fine. Rated 9/10.
Fairways were beautiful as usual at DW. Perfect padding with a nice amount of rollout. Very green with no blemishes. Rated 9/10
Tees were lush, level and in great shape. Rated 9/10.
Was in 3 greenside bunkers. Two had perfect sand base one was a bit firmer with clay like sand but easy to splash out of. Rated 8/10.
Rough was thick, lush and in beautiful shape. Easy 9.5/10. Some areas like just in front of 1 green were very lush.
Really love holes 9 and 18 and the backdrop it provides. Good test of golf here. Layout is challenging with a couple shorter risk reward par 4s, strong par 4s and enough native areas and Fairway bunkers to get your attention.
Highly recommend the conditions here at DW» Close

Rode the blues 12/13/21 with Pedro, Nick and Dave under really nice conditions albeit a bit cold at tee off at 730am. Really fun group of guys and we had a blast. Pop was 4 hrs 30 minutes. Nice to meet Dave.
Got to sample there breakfast burrito which was tasty and do a quick warmup on there all grass range and chipping area. Friendly proshop and cart barn staff.
Bring a camera as this place is off the hook nice and after my second time playing it one of my favorites in the desert.
Fairways were a 9/10 with perfect lies albeit a bit wet in the morning the first couple of holes due to the cold weather. Pleasure to hit off of.
Greens were in great shape rolling smooth and quick. Holding shots nicely with height or spin. Green complexes have some awesome swales and undulation which can make pin setting here tough if they wanted to. Rating 9/10
Tees were lush, level and in good shape. Rated 9/10
Rough around the greens and fairways were in the 9.5/10 shape. Lush, green but playable and perfect to the naked eye.
Was in one greenside bunker and one Fairway bunker that were both raked to perfection and had perfect amount of sand. Rated 9/10
Layout has forced carries on many holes with beautiful big majestic lakes. Couple reachable par 5s but trouble lurkes on many holes. Many huge Fairway bunkers present. Lots of variety on dogleg left and right holes which are awesome. Beautiful finishing hole. Former PGA tour stop that's a must play in the area. One of the better courses I have ever played.
Highly recommended.» Close
