“Private Course Experience On a Public Course”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Soule Park is ideal for a beginner or an advanced player. The people at the pro shop enjoy helping the clueless get started, and are deft at getting things going for the top players. Soule is rated as one of the top public courses in the nation, and they show a warmth, class and charm that many private courses would do well to emulate.

From the first hole on, you become lost in the splendor of Ojai. Soon you feel as though you are in another land as you wander among towering oaks, against the backdrop of the mountains. The water stations provide pure iced water so delicious even the drinkers in the party will crave it.

Around the 12th hole an incredibly loud, braying donkey can be heard but not seen, which adds to the charm. Another hole peeks up against the local Humane Society where dogs will remind golfers that a perfect way to celebrate an excellent round of golf is to pop in an adopt a pet.

Other than that, the only thing you will here are birds and an occasional plea to play through. The prices lay waste to the claim that golf is a rich man's game. An excellent experience from start to finish.

“stunningly beautiful, challenging”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Soule Park is a beautiful golf course, cradled in a low valley amid high mountains with a challenging layout and quick, devilish greens. It has tough par 3s and difficult par 4s and accessible par 5s...perfect.
For a public golf course, it's a jewel. Very affordable. Very friendly. And usually not very crowded, although it has been the site of numerous regional golf events of late. And is host to a qualifying round for the U.S. Senior Open next week, june 19, 2013.
In short, this is a terrific course. Low pressure from a friendly staff. A good bar and restaurant. And fine golf. Overall, a better golf experience than the Ojai Valley Inn, at a fraction of the price.

“Value for your bucks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

Great golf, elevated tees, as good as Ojai Country Club. $25.00 instead of $250. Challenging course. Go to Deer Lodge afterwards, relax, it's all good. Relaxation capital of California.
