Sterling Hills

Rode the Blues (6395/71.1/127) in 4H, 15M mid morning with John, Mark and Mike for the very competitive GK Cup final match. We played in overcast and windy conditions with temps around 70. Thanks to John for coordinating and to Sterling Hills for hosting the GK Cup Final.

Decent par 71 layout overall with many fun/interesting golf holes up/down rolling hills. The course had good coverage and was in what I would call normal winter condition.

Tees were semi lush and only the par 3's needed divot repair.

Fairways had good coverage and were decent, semi lush.

Rough here has good coverage but is a mixture of grasses.

Traps were in decent condition with dark brown sand.

Greens were the best part of the course. Undulating and firm, but they still held full shots well. Quick today, tough to get chips and lag putts to stop around many hole locations. Our group had numerous downhill putts lip out or seem like they were well judged for pace only to have 6', 8' or more coming back by the time they finally stopped.

Customer service very good from all encountered. Cart gal around numerous times and the snack shop has good food at reasonable prices. Basic carts do not have GPS. Driving range on mats. Recommended.

Nice course not too challenging

I enjoyed this course. It was in good condition and the greens were excellent. Very undulating though. They were the most challenging part of the course. Not too long from the white tees if you’re not a long hitter. Great blend of short and longer par fours. The par fives are a little short but fun. I don’t really need 560 yard par fives in my life anyhow lol! Every person there including the guys I ended up playing with as a single couldn’t have been nicer. I like to play fast so I’ll try to be fair about pace of play. We played as a threesome and waited on most shots. It was approximately 4.5 hours which isn’t horrible. I’d prefer to get around in closer to 4 for a threesome if not less. It didn’t seem too crowded so a ranger may have helped shave some time but was not to be found. Honestly, I was enjoying myself and the weather so much, it didn’t matter. Nice course and worth a try.

Best greens for less green.

We found the course to be in good shape. If you guys remember 3 years ago it was a cow pasture. They have elevated it to on a scale of 1 to 10 I would give it a good 7 to 8 which is damm good for public course.

My overall recommendation is keep strong you guys you doing a Fantastic job.

Nice Outing

Sterling is always a good value. My $55 included a cart, a small bucket of balls, and choice of any item from the lunch menu. I chose the Philly Cheese Steak which listed for over $10. Truly a good value for weekend play.

Really good conditions given all the rain yesterday. I’ve played this course many times but recently they have seemed to really be on top of the course condition. It’s part of our rotation and will continue to be.

Work in progress

Tee boxes fairways a bit rough. Traps filled with water or muddy.
Greens sanded and mini punched.
Love the reseeding and landscaping that’s been done. Keep up the work!
Over and under on very good conditions: May 2020.

Awesome Greens

Rode the blues Sunday morning, POP 5 hours. Tees, fairways and rough average. Sand traps above average. The greens all around might be the best for a municipal course that I’ve ever played on. They rolled true and held shots. Great value for the GOLFNOW Hot Deal, recommended.

New shots, new friends

I play a lot of golf as a single player and therefore meet a lot of new golfers who become friends for four or five hours. My new buddies Ron and Jericho joined me for a wonderful round of golf. I now consider Sterling Hills a friend as I have now played this outstanding venue four or five times. Great greens that are a challenge, warm friendly staff, and an outstanding value for money spent. Can’t have too many friends.

Nice and challenging

Good layout. Fairways are a little hairy. Bunkers are consistently inconsistent. Greens are solid and tricky! Winds can definitely make this course start to get real long. Good value. I’ll definitely be back

A qualified "no" to recommending the course to others

We drive from Santa Barbara to Ventura to play a lot of the courses, but we haven't come to Sterling in awhile because the course was not in good shape (better now), but mainly because of slow play. Got a deal on Golf Now, so we thought we'd try it again. The marshals don't enforce slow play, and we had another 5.5 hour round. Ugh! I like the course but my friends don't want to come back due to the slow play. 2 groups were waiting and one group was just coming up to the tee box ,on the par 3 8th, for example. There is no excuse for that! We play all the other courses in Ventura and Ojai and never have to play that slow, ever! But always at Sterling. The free beer was a nice touch though. Thanks

Fairways needs some attention

Sterling Hills is on some of Southern California’s best real estate. The views of surrounding Camarillo are fantastic. the weather is unbelievably good. The Tee boxes are top notch, as are the greens, that said the fairways need some attention. Some of the fairway space is muddy, & a bit patchy. The staff is very friendly & realistically $43 a person for 18 holes, cart & lunch plus a small bucket to warm up is a pretty sweet deal! Sterling Hills is worth your attention. A strong B+ A-.
