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-.

Good value

It's been about 3 years since I last played this course. Greens are pretty good. The rest of the course needs some work but it is very playable. It wasn't in the great condition that I remember from the past, but don't get me wrong, it's still a very good course and makes for an enjoyable round.

It’s not perfect but getting there!

Greens & tee boxes are excellent, fairways are good to very good. Some of the front staff that checks us in are very friendly & their so glad we’re back to enjoy their course. Sometimes the front staff like today, he just might have had a bad morning who knows but not friendly, but no complaints. I highly recommend this course as it’s challenging & yet your not likely to break a neighborhood window. The lunch specials included in the golf & cart on GOLFMOOSE.com (when the do run their specials) that’s the best way to go! Overall you’ll have a fantastic day of beautiful greens & fairways with Mountain View’s.

Great value, this course has really come up as River Ridge courses have gone down. Only complaint is drinking water barrels were filled with undrinkable hose water.

My tee time was at 12:30 pm today. It was so hit and humid that I had to quit playing after 8 holes. I hope Golf Now will send me a promo code for future use. Thanks
