Best value early afternoon

Teed off 1:10. Joined another single on 2. Wide open until hole 10. Slowed down a bit but still finished before 4!
Great price and fast pace. Awesome!

Short but Fun

I've been playing this course for many years off and on. It's not my course of choice for the Ventura and Santa Barbara area given all the other courses around. It's a shorter than typical course with the black tee just short of 6000 yards, but it's not a push over either. Moderate length players can hit wedge into most greens so if I brought my game I can score in the 70's. Definitely worth playing. I played today because of the price point over all other courses in the area. That's when I usually play it. Enjoy!

Great course

Great conditions considering the massive amount of rain we received the previous day. Very fun course with a few tough spots but overall a forgiving course. Can’t wait to go back.

Friendly and local atmosphere.

I’ve played the course before and enjoyed my round. I was paired with a good mix of players and they were very friendly. Overall the experience was good. I always get a neighborhood vibe when I play there and like the experience!
