"Lovely little course, but don't rely on the GPS"

This is a beautiful little course, well-maintained for the most part. Greens are super fast, but some have weedy patches. The problem is that the course has been reconfigured, so GPS gadgets give you the wrong info for the holes you're trying to play. And the GPS on the carts doesn't give you any yardage. Even though we had played the course one previous occassion, I was unaware of their no denim policy, but they 'allowed' me to play anyway. A great little course in spite of the glitches.

Hello and thank you for taking the time to review Ventura CC!

If you download the "new" Ventura CC to your GPS device you will get the current correct layout yardages. The GPS units on our 2018 Club Car Fleet helps us to control the car, yardage not included.

Thanks Again!

The day we played was cold and windy. The course was in good condition for that time of year. They need to improve signage and yardage markings. The carts just stop if you go into certain areas, no-one advised us of that took time to figure that out. I would like to play it under better conditions. Good value for the money.

Course was in great shape! Very green! They changed the way you go around the course. Hole 1 used to be 17. We had 2 different kinds of GPS and neither of them could pick up the correct hole and distance. The GPS one the cart was also useless. Other than that, great course in great condition!

Ventura is the perfect course for the average golfer to truly enjoy a nice round. The course is in great shape, layout is interesting, and staff couldn't be any friendlier and accommodating. Nines have been flip-flopped to address the bottleneck that came from the old layout where 2 & 3 were back to back par threes. Don't let the shorter than usual yardages fool you, because the six par threes and the narrow fairways make up for the shorter course yardages. Unfortunately, we got behind a foursome of obvious beginners who had the course backed up, but we made the best of a beautiful day at a nice course.

Course seamed to be lacking maintenance that it has always been very good at. GPS on carts not working but the limit travel gps was working stopping the cart every time you got off the cart path very annoying. Should you need to get out of the rain quickly would not happen and you would get soaked.

Hello, Thanks for taking the time to review our course! The course is great condition after the Florida Freeze we encountered last week. The GPS equipment on our 2018 Club Car Fleet does not include yardage. The GPS units ensure that the carts do not drive into sensitive areas like too close to greens or hazards. Then and only then the cart will inform you to avoid the area. Thanks again for Playing Ventura CC!

I always check the stated dress code for the course before leaving. On GolfNow for Ventura it says that “denim is ok”. So because it was a cool day, and we wanted to be comfortable, we all wore jeans and collared golf shirts. Upon entering the pro shop, we were told to go home unless we had rain pants to put over our jeans. We were halfway to our car when they came running out of the pro shop to tell us we could play. They checked the website and were shocked to see that denim was allowed. They said they had sent other groups home that day for wearing jeans. Anyway, we enjoyed the golf because we were on vacation, and weren’t going to let some uptight pro shop employees ruin our day.
