Overgrown tee boxes and dead fairways

If you want to lose faith in golf, play here. They don’t like mowing the tee boxes or watering their fairways. Their greens are in fair condition, but the problem is getting to them. Holes 4-7 smell like feces. Will never go back.

Dead grass and overgrown tee boxes

Overgrown tee boxes and dead grass everywhere. If you’re going to spend $45 to golf, pick any other course in Ventura or LA. Good luck Camarillo Springs! Really hope that remodel happens.

Most Improved

The Course is in the best shape I’ve seen in the last couple years... I went twice this week because it’s been the best I’ve seen in a while. The course has a great balance of challenging holes and friendly holes. Greens are in great shape too.

Decent course

The starting holes were great, a couple of the finishing holes were pretty good. 9-12 weren't very good. Just felt like makeshift holes in peoples' backyards.

Overall I enjoyed the views, the landscapes, etc. so it was a pleasant experience

Good Greens, not good anything else

The greens were well maintained, albeit a little slow, but at least were interesting. The tee boxes, fairways, and roughs have seen better days. Also, holes 2-6 must be too close to a dump or something very smelly.

Gone to Seed

Very interesting layout with lots of variety to the holes, however conditions are very poor. Greens are good, tee boxes a disaster, fairways not much better.
5 hour round on Sunday morning, too many twosomes and fivesomes on the course.
Dissapointed for the cost, plus the additional per rider $12 makes it not a great value.

Nice Track in medium good public shape

I hesitate to write this because I don't want it to be crowded but Camarillo Springs is the current sweet spot in my area for a good enough course at a good enough price. With the pandemic many of my usual haunts are too pricey or too crowded or both. I've ended up here. It's a nice layout - 16 good holes + 2 boring par 3s. Not in the greatest shape but good enough around the greens and down the fairways to not drive you nuts. Pleasant environment with the coastal weather and sort of marshy, farm field adjacent atmosphere. Wind plays a big part in your strategy. The course has struggled in recent years, but with current level of play they are watering and things are "good enough." The rough is Kikayou - when watered the same as Riviera country club. You have to develop a strategy for getting out of it - not necessarily grabbing the sand wedge like most courses. I enjoy playing here, often in under 4 hours for 18, walking.

Still a great value

Excellent value indeed. The greens were pristine.The course was well groomed and cared for. One complaint, the tee boxes are atrocious. Uneven. No level area. This factor was by far the worst part of the experience.

Excellent Bargain, nice layout, below average condition

Enjoyed playing here for the first time. Glad I was with some regulars as yardages are poorly marked and there are some tricky holes. Overall the layout is challenging and fun. Four sets of tees to pick difficulty. Enough length to keep you interested. The weather in Camarillo is usually very pleasant. The scenery on the course is nice. The course maintenance is not great, but its not so bad as to keep me from coming back. Greens rolled pretty well. Fairways were decent. Pace of play was surprisingly good, considering the number of people out. Played in 4:15. The course was rough around the edges, but considering the bargain price I'd come back in a heart beat.

Relaxing Round

If you can get out to this course early on a weekday morning you will be in for a nice treat. I was playing alone between several foursomes and was able to take a nice relaxing pace and really enjoy the fresh air and the views. All-in-all, fantastic course for a nice relaxing morning.
