Challenging course

My husband and I visit the Ojai resort every couple of years and always love our experience here. Course layout has changed since we’ve been here last and the first hole is definitely a challenging one. Holes 16,17,& 18 are a great addition on the back side. Highly recommend this course for those looking for a challenge.

Amazing golf in Ojai

My wife and I traveled a great distance to spend time in Ojai; specifically to play golf here.
The course lives up to its pedigree. Conditions were superb. I love old classic courses that test all aspects of your game. This is well worth it.

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.
