“Stunning views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

This golf course if beautiful, alot of great views of the mountains and the rolling landscape. The Inn itself is a very beautiful building thats sets a nice scene when you first arrive. The golf carts are top notch, you can use them for everything from calling the pro shop to ordering yourself lunch and to checking out each hole prior to teeing off. If you start heading in the wrong direction the golf cart will notify you of that as well ( going as far as shutting your cart off if you go on the green or in a restricted area!) There water stations actually serve for cold refreshing water since it gets super hot up as well as chilled fruit. we met a few celebrities while cruising the course so that was a bonus. Beware that the course is no easy feat its got some very difficult spots. Have fun and enjoy!

“heven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

landscape is awesome and challenging course. for any golfer its a must do there have been many famous people here on the course. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Ask if theres a 2nd round of play for $10.00 sometimes if its a slow day day they will offer that special.

“They call this heaven!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

I am a local who spends a lot of time at the Ojai Valley Inn. I was one of the first guests at the Spa when it opened 15 years ago and I still consider it one of my favorite spas to visit. There is nothing better than meeting at the spa and starting the day off with a walk into town. There are always yoga and stretch classes first thing in the morning and then I make sure I book one or two special treatments, usually a massage and a facial. However, one of the best treatments is the Kuyam room. Then it is poolside to enjoy the rest of a relaxing day. The golf course is fabulous - very challenging with spectacular views. All of the restaurants are good - we do prefer Jimmie's pub - casual late-night eating and there is always a game on the TV's. This is definitely one of the most beautiful properties there are as far as hotels go. It has elegance and yet small town charm.

“Quite a setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

It winds through the hills and the front nine while quite short, has some interesting elevation and shot crossings. The back nine is special. Long par 3's and the 3 finishing holes are as good as it gets.
