This course always impresses me with how well maintained it stays. Summer time is best to play because it remains booked solid from snowbirds. This date was cart path only due to amount of rain lately but pace remained excellent.

I booked the course on line, I played the course with a local who pointed out the course knowledge. I played the blue and he played the white. The course was in great shape even after the storm. The course is short but a great layout. It was so nice I played it again on Thursday the day after the 4th of July.

This course is kind of a hidden gym in town. It provides a few challenging shots but gives you multiple chances to be aggressive and go after it.

First of all can I say that I have previously played the course and thoroughly enjoyed it, so much so, that’s why I returned with both my sons, one of which was celebrating his birthday. We are fro Scotland and gave holidayed in Florida 2/3 times a year for the last 10 years, so I have played several of the courses in the Orlando area.

I do appreciate that there was considerable rainfall on the night of 13 June.

On our arrival at the course the staff were very pleasant and we got checked in and all set to go. We were informed that due to the rainfall it was cart paths only. We lastrd 4 holes, 2 of which were par 3’s and were forced to stop due to the exceptionally wet underfoot conditions. The course was unplayable and we should not have benn allowed on. The course should have been closed as golf was impossible and anyone playing on it would be causing damage. We were the only people playing and decided to call it a day.

When I returned to the Pro shop I explained to the staff my concerns and they agreed, saying that consideration was given to closing the Tee. We were offered a ‘Rain Check’ which I duly accepted as I do want to play the course again with my sons.

I do feel that we should not have been allowed on to the course and re booked for another time.

Excellent & challenging layout. Must think ahead of shots. Played it 2 weeks after fairways & greens had been aerified and it was very good. Can't wait to see it fully recovered. Great time very enjoyable round.

The pace was the worst I've ever played. This group in front of us literally took 30 minutes on the 9th green, and the ranger came up to us and said just play the hole over? No kick them off the course. Even the entire course being punched didn't bother me as much as the inconsiderate group ahead of us.

Hello and Thank You for playing and taking the time to review Ventura CC! The group you are referring to were new players and we worked with them from the time they arrived. It is unfortunate that your group was held up. The slow group only played 9 holes and I hope they take up the game after some instruction. As for the aeration, we advertised that the work had been done and as you know it is a necessary evil. The course is in great condition and we hope to see you again soon!
