Private club conditions, public course price!

Enjoyed an early morning rabbit run at Buena Ventura with the family!. Was happy just to get out to swing a club and play. Teed off at 0-dark-thirty and immediately noticed an amazingly verdant velvet layer of fairway turf as I chased my drive down the fairway. Fabulous private club type fairway conditions lined every hole. For those who are unfamiliar with Buena Ventura, it is a shorter course at par 70, but none the less challenging with a mix of tree-lined par fairways, lakes, and traps. If there is a weak point it would be a bevy of short par 3's, yet, tricky enough with less elements of dicey slopes, traps and water to keenly keep our interest. Enjoy now, as course conditions are at a premium. Finished our round in a hair under 3-hours!

Love it!

I always enjoy playing this course! The fairways are always in good shape, the greens are receptive, and puts roll pretty true. Bunkers actually have real sand in them and there are plenty of scoring opportunities. Great course and a good value!!

Good day for golf

Course was in good shape. Tee boxes, fairways and greens were will kept. Secondary rough was ok. Sand traps were not racked (because of COVID-19) so were able to take out and play without penalty - a good call.
Overall a good day for golf.

The course is ready to play

The condition of the course reflects the pride of management and staff workers. It was a pleasure to play although with 5 artificial joints I could have enjoyed a cart, hopefully it won’t be too much longer and we will return to normalcy.

First Time Playing

Car burglarized during round of golf

This was my first time playing at Buenaventura golf course. When I finished my round of golf I returned to my car and noticed the key hole was drilled out, and my keyless entry would not work. I go on to find that someone had broken into my car and stole valuables cash and credit cards and cost thousands of dollars of damage to my car. Also thousands of dollars were charged to two of my stolen credit cards. I notified staff that my car had been burglarized and they let me know that this happens occasionally and one of the staff members told me he chased to burglars out of the parking lot who had just stolen a laptop out of a customers car that Buenaventura golf course parking lot. If vandalism and theft is not uncommon why are there no signs informing customers? Why do they say that they spent millions of dollars renovating this golf course but have failed to install a security camera in the parking lot? I filed a report with the golf course. I will update when I hear back down them. This is unacceptable when spending money at a business. They should notify and protect their customers.
