Great layout and challenging course. Greens were a little rough for the price but overall enjoyed it and will play again.

Course features

The golf course at Ohio Valley Inn is always in very good condition. I only played it once a year because I live out of the area but, I love every minute of every hole. It is also one of the most beautiful settings that I’ve ever experience while playing golf – thanks to you and for providing such a great golf opportunity

Wonderful course

As a first-time player at Ojai Valley, I didn't know what to expect. But even if I had high expectations, they would have been exceeded. This is a jewel of a course, attached to the Ojai Valley Inn, The views are gorgeous, and the course, in a word, is fair. You don't have to hit career shots to score, but it's far from a track where you can just slop it around. The most memorable hole for me is 16, a par 3 from an elevated tee, with OB right, hazard left, and the front of the green completely guarded by bunkers. You'll walk off that green feeling pretty good about par. At least I assume you would, although I couldn't vouch for that.
Extremely friendly and helpful staff. When I missed my assigned time, they just slotted me in with no problem. Can't wait for my next visit. My only concern is that with too many positive reviews, the course will get crowded! But even if it does, it's still a lovely golf experience.

Great course- Great property

The course is one the best in the area. Challenging but even a less than average player can have a great time. It is probably one of the most beautiful golf courses in the world and I am including Pebble Beach in that comparison. The Ojai Valley Inn is also one of the greatest resort properties in the US. The staff and amenities are 5 star and you know it when you are there. An overall great experience.

Absolutely Not Worthwhile Visiting for Play

I spent about one and a half hours to get there by driving mostly on highways. Given the driving distance and the amount you should pay, I DO NOT recommend that you play there. If it's located in urban area, the course won't be popular. I just went there again to evaluate my golfing ability since I recorded the worst score last time due to the unfamiliarity of the course. Three Par 3 holes out of four are extremely short and most par 4 and par 5 holes are short. Good thing is that you can enjoy the ambience of private courses. You are not pushed to pick up the pace of your play but may finish a round in 4 hours. I bet the course evaluation is exaggerated because of the ambience of resort courses.

Course was in fantastic shape and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Quite a few forced carries which can be avoided by playing the forward tees if a less challenging set up is desired. Fantastic views.

Course to ourselves

Rode the blues in 3 hours, with my son. This was our second time playing in as many weeks. Again country club conditions as we basically had the course to ourselves. The staff here truly is the best, I’ve never had close to a bad experience here. The starter let us out an hour early off of the back. The course is in wonderful shape tee to green. The are constantly doing maintenance up until 3pm which I’ve rarely seen. Tees were level, traps were immaculate, greens riolled true with hardly any ball marks. I used my free voucher, this course keeps me on GolfNow. Staff was saying they may ditch GolfNow. If anyone from GolfNow is reading this if you lose ojai you lose me lol. I highly recommend this course.

Golf Heaven!

Played on a basically empty course today in perfect 70 degree weather. Ojai is extremely challenging, especially around and on the greens. The scenery is unbelievable, the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. I don’t have a single complaint other than I don’t get to play it again tomorrow. Outstanding golf experience all around.
