Go to the resort's website and read Golf, Course History. It has an amazing history including the 1999 restoration of two holes lost during WWII to US military occupation, using the original course architect's drawings. Our group found it difficult from the back tees even though those tees are 6,300 yards. And the views of Ojai Valley are terrific.

After a little confusion about my tee time, I had an excellent round here. Our Concierge had made a 7:30 tee time, but when I showed up at 7:15, nobody was there. They all rolled in around 7:50, saying that 8:00 was their first time. They did not seem to have me down at all. There was a frost delay... More

A great course, right on property. Make sure you add to your handicap, or play your first round ever. You will enjoy the views, elevation changes and speed of play. It is not crowded!

The golf course is short, yet very challenging. Especially the first 3 holes and then the last 3 holes. Well maintained and not crowded. The driving range and putting area are both very large and well maintained.

they were fixing a couple of holes on the back nine, so that interfered. The general condition was very good, and the staff was very accommodating. Nice, interesting layout. Use extra club on the uphills...

Front and back nines are different vintages, as are many older resort properties' courses. Fun to play and very nice staff

Great course, great views only sorry they were putting in a new watering system and doing maintenance when I was there. A good golfing challenge to be played off the back tees
