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.

I had the course to myself!

I played on a rainy day and had the course to myself. This was the first time I had played the course in about 20 years. I like some of the changes to the course, but not so crazy about others. As I recall, they lengthened number 5 and made it a par 5 and flip-flopped 17 and 18. They shortened number 7 and made it par 4. The old no. 7 was a beautiful par five with an majestic oak overhanging the green with a creek guarding it in front. It was a temptation for long hitters to go for it in two. A lovely, picturesque hole. But alas, it is gone. The greens were very bumpy, making putting difficult. Some of the greens (esp on the back nine) are rather small and undulating. I found 12 and 13 very hard greens to putt. But overall, it was a fun day in the rain. Since there was no one else on the course, the staff let me out well before my tee time. The range was closed (perhaps due to the rain). I would love to play the course again when the weather was better.

Soule Park Golf Course

It was perfect weather and I felt lucky to be able to play. There were a few things though that I think I should point out. First, the ball machine at the driving range was broken, but after going back to the pro shop and letting them know, someone came and fixed it right away. The driving range mats were worn out and uneven and the range balls were pretty old too. While the fairways were trim, the rough was a little too long, so it made it difficult to find my ball. One thing I appreciated was the ball washers actually had soapy water in them and the towels were clean. The golf cart's battery went dead at the 8th hole, so someone had to come out and give us a another one. At the 17th hole, that one started going dead too and the guy that i was paired up with had to actually get out and push the cart to get it to the last hole. It was my birthday that day and I found out after the fact I could have played the round for free, but it was so inexpensive anyway using Golfnow that I didn't mind.

This course is in the worst condition of any course in the county. They should be ashamed to charge people to play.
