Beautiful Course

Ojai Valley is an excellent layout with generous fairways, but lots of bunkers (with great sand) lots of tress and carry shots, and well maintained fairways and greens.

Fantastic find in the mountains

Had a wonderfull experience at the resort golf. A bit out of the way but if you like playing a Scottish style highland golf course then this is a must. Green staff in particular very helpful and friendly. All amenities are good although fairways needing a tiny bit more TLC but considering the recent difficulties with fire then floods it is a “wee gem”

Get a HotDeal During the Week

Strongly suggest booking this course to play in the middle of the week for $55. Not saying that this course isn't worth the higher price tag you would pay without the HotDeal, because it is. With all of the rain we have had in Southern California this winter, the mountains around Ojai are just spectacular right now to play OVI! Hurry up and go now.

George Thomas take his name off of the design

I've played this great course many times. It was designed by SoCal's legendary designer Captain George Thomas in the 1920's.
When playing this past Friday I found out that they had changed/ruined the 18th hole. They built a new huge wedding venue and in doing so, dramatically changed one of the greatest holes in California. The person that laid out the new 18th hole should be forbidden from ever designing any future golf holes.
Most people won't care, and that is fine, but to rip up the original hole is really questionable decision making.
