Took my best friend for a round of golf at Oja Valley Inn for his birthday . It was a great experience for both of us. The staff was helpful and extremely Friendly. The course was in good condition but the greens were surprisingly slow. Great layout and a good pace of play. We finished in 3 1/2 hours on a Sunday. Drinks at the bar are far to expensive but that comes with a resort. Will definitely return.

An excellent day of golf here; the course is not that long but offers some design challenges and great aesthetics. It was our first time here, but we will come back soon as we can. greens were in very good condition and had consistent speed. Lots of sand traps, especially on the par 3 # 16

Played on a Tuesday during a heat wave so the course was empty. No one in front of me, no one behind me. LOT'S of elevation changes so tough to judge yardage but really fun layout with beautiful views.

Awesome George Thomas design. He also designed Riviera CC. I can't believe I haven't played this before. The course and views are so classically beautiful with great bunkering and green designs. Course conditions are excellent. I want to go back tomorrow and play it again.

This is a beautiful course at a fabulous resort. While you don't need to be a guest in the hotel to play I highly recommend at least one night there if possible.

Great location and a big bonus because it is part of the Ojai Valley Inn. This course was constructed early in the last century and has held up nicely. The first few holes have some arroyo carries with fun elevation changes. The last three holes are very challenging. The 18th in particular is a bit narrow, very long and up hill at the end. A fitting finish. The rest of the course rewards good shots and has ample fairways. Be sure to look around the rooms above the 10 th tee. This was the original golf club house. A nice snack at the pub at a table under the trees near the 13th tee is recommended.

First time playing here and enjoyed the day. The green aeration is almost grown out and puts are running close to true. Sand traps have inconsistent depth. Not much else to add to other reviews but some arrival directions:

After passing the security guard station the next facility you will come upon will be the dining facilities (do not park here as it is quite a distance to the golf facilities) pass this building and continue straight on what appears to be a service road, half way to parking you will pass the pro shop on your right and continue to the stop sign then turn left down the hill to parking. There are numerous passenger shuttles that will pick you up and bring you to the pro shop.

Enjoy your day!
