Perfect weather

Soule Park

Walked the Oak tees (6806/72.8/128) with RGM2525 in slightly more than 4.5 Hours for their $19 twilight rate. The weather was excellent for golf, sunny, fairly calm & around 80.

This is an average difficulty course to walk, not very hilly, no significant elevation changes or long hikes between any holes. The large lake between holes #1 & #10 is almost full again, which makes for a nice visual.

The Poa Annua tees are generally flat and were mowed close, nice to play from.

The fairways are semi lush & firm with good coverage.

The rough is thinner, hardpan in spots and not overly tall. In many places there was very little difference in being in the fairway or the rough.

The sand traps were decently maintained with fine, dark sand.

The combination Bent & Poa Annua greens putted medium speed with a normal amount of ball marks. They are firm, but still held approach shots well & putted nicely once I got the speed down.

The customer service was excellent. No drink cart, but plenty of water stations on the course. I really like this layout, it fits my eye. Only a few homes nearby, just surrounded by hills and away from things on most holes. Recommended, I would play here often "but for" the drive.

Much Improved

After suffering from the drought in past years the fairways are much improved. Poor lies which were common are now rare. The greens are consistent. The only rough spot remaining is the sand traps which need more sand.

Great layout

I play Soule Park every time I get the chance. It's a 90 mile drive for me but always worth it. Friendly staff good food and a beautiful layout. Spread out with some minor elevation changes, tough shots over wide barancas, very tricky, well kept greens and enough sand traps to keep you honest.

Well worth the money even at full rates but there's usually a deal somewhere to lessen the pain.

Nice course lay-out

Soule Park in Ojai used to be one of my favorite courses. It still has some water issues which make it a little too dry. More watering would certainly help on the fairways and greens as well.

Best golfnow value I've seen

I golf on a budget so I'm a fiend for the golfnow hot deals. This course honestly fees like it should be out of my price range.

$12 plus service fee... With a cart... And a very scenic track situated sitting the Ojai valley, which is entertaining even without golf involved.

I've played here on a couple of holiday weekends when it isn't too busy and had a blast; one time brought my grandma out to watch and it was enjoyable for her as well given the scenery.

Girlfriend played along with me most recently; she's a total beginner but had a blast as well as they have like 5 sets of tees.
