Overview
More
Buenaventura Golf Course was originally designed by legendary golf course architect William Park Bell in 1932. In 2005, the course re-opened after a $6.5 million renovation by Forrest Richardson. The parkland-style course aims towards design features that were prevalent in the 1930s. With classic shapes and edges, stepping on the course is like taking a step back in time. Playing at just over 6,000 yards to a par of 70, Buenaventura is a shot maker’s delight with mature trees, subtle undulations and rolling contours suitable for all playing abilities. The course also features the 19th Pub & Grille. Buenaventura Golf Course is rated “4 Stars” by Golf Digest “Best Places to Play.”

This course plays pretty easy with a par of 70 and a few par-4's that are less than 300 yards. Greens are well maintained and very forgiving, as are the bunkers. Course is in great condition and I played for $35 with the GolfNow deal....More

Great day of golf. Visiting from WA State. Easily walkable well maintained course, even after the heavy rains 3 days before. The greens were in excellent condition. Challenging but wide open for those wild shots. I would go again.

The pace of play is terrible, expect over 5 hour round. They also put out fivesomes which make it even worse. There are no marshalls or anyone else on the course, after they get your money you are on your own......

Play this course once or twice a year. Course fairways are open and drive-able. Greens are nice and the rough isn't too rough. Pace is fast. In the morning is probably the best due to zero or very light winds. Afternoons the breeze can pick...More

This course is a bit further inland from Olivos Links and is a bit easier, too (a good thing!). My Mom and I come here regularly for a tournament.

This is a short course but it IS fun to play and basically well kept for a small greens fee. The layout is "very interesting" as Arte Cane would say on Laugh IN. It is one of the best deals for golf in Ventura County....More

I play here with a group every Sunday. It's a short, relatively easy course. The staff are excellent, the course could use some work. A lot of bare areas, lack of sand in the bunkers. The greens are somewhat slow, the rough not very high....More

I can't give you all my secrets but love this one for late afternoon play when it is uncrowned. Simple layout with beautiful trees, wide fairways, shorter par fours and nice greens, bunkers and water features make it an excellent place for casual practice rounds...More

Course was really in good shape considering the drought. Not much rough, not too long, not too much water. A few challenging sand traps and decent green speed. And Mondays were twilight rates all day for everyone!
