Had a playing lesson this morning 2/19/2019. Cooler morning with beautiful skies. Crowded course this morning for a Tuesday morning. I am impressed with the new management. Since I have played here last they continue to make improvements to areas just in front of tees, around trees, etc.

The greens were in great shape. They look quicker than they putt. They putted very smoothly. Would say maybe a 10 on the stimp. Very few ballmarks but some foot traffic around some of the holes. Gil Hanse architect of this beauty created huge putting surfaces here with some undulation. Staff can put the pins in 6-7 different locations to challenge lag putting here. Greens held shots like darts and were in very good shape. Highlight of the course. Rated 8/10.

All bunker complexes have newer white sand put in within the last year. My student was in bunkers on 12 and 16 and I was in the bunker on 17--they are all in great shape. Soft sand that you need to thump. Rated 8/10.

The fairway grass is slowly coming back into shape. I saw more green grass. There is still some underlying mud and wet spots from the recent rains. In the coming weeks I can see the grass really growing in and getting better. Current fairway rating 6/10.

Tees for the most part were OK. They should look at leveling the par 5 5th hole tee box.

Rough was muddy and spotty but in not too bad of shape. Mowers were out cutting the grass this morning.

Student and I really enjoyed the day here. Great staff, great prices, nice greens and sand conditions. Fairway conditions will be improving each day with all the rains we received.

Rode this morning 1/28/2019 at 7:15am for a playing lesson with one of my students. Thanks to Michael and his staff for having me out with my student who is a member at Sunset CC. I had only played once here years ago with a member. I grew up a mile away from here so this for sure is a local private that I ride by daily.
The course was in very nice shape.

Lets start with the greens. These greens are the best greens that I have putted on in a while. Very quick, true and holding irons with a high ball flight. I am rating the greens close to a 9/10 today. Regarding the green complexes some of them have slope and most of them are small targets. I could putt these greens every day and twice on Sunday.

The recent rains have really helped improve all courses fairways. These were beautiful, mostly lush and green with just some lower lying areas that were wet. Great shape--close to an 8/10.

Tees were in very nice shape and were lush and level.

My student was able to test out some bunker shots and all bunkers encountered were raked with plenty of sand.

Rough was generally lush, medium thickness maybe couple inches and in good shape.

Layout here is a thinking man's layout. You can rip driver on every hole if you like and if you are long there are a couple drive able par 4's. Then there is the smart play of laying up in the fairway on holes like 13. Numerous holes have some awesome sloped fairways for a player to negotiate.

I would recommend a membership here. There is a lot of shot value and different angles and sight lines on this course. Fun course were accuracy is paramount.

Rode the Blues this afternoon 12/20/2018 at 12:30pm with JohnnyGK, RGM2525 and 24hourgolf. POP was 3 hrs 45 minutes with the golf course to ourselves--never had to wait on one shot. Perfect weather mid 70's with no wind. Super practice facilities, huge Clubhouse that reminded me more of a Hotel and very friendly staff and cart attendants.

This course shoots right up to the top of my list for being well maintained and for the layout. Top 3 for me. When everybody told me that everything is big here they were not lying. Huge greens, water hazards, bunkers, fairways, etc--you get the drift. Some nice challenging holes and some birdie holes for sure that our group had plenty of! Almost had 5 on the day myself.

Fairways were super lush, ball sitting up perfectly. Rated a 9/10.

Tees perfect, level and lush. Rated a 9/10.

Rough super lush and green. Great shape, healthy. Rated 9/10.

Greens were a minor step down from Terra Lago but still in good shape rolling medium speed with some grain to them. Rated 7.5 out of 10.

Was in one greenside bunker and 2 fairway bunkers that were raked and in good shape--maybe could have used some more sand. Rated 7.5/10.

Just love the back nine here.

Highly Recommended--I hope to return again one day. They have something special going on here.

Rode the Gold Tees this morning 12/20/2018 at 7:16 second GK group out. Paired up with JohnnyGK, Mpisarski01 and Blakej824--great fun guys to play with. Our POP was 4 hrs 15 minutes waiting some on the first couple holes but then no waiting after that. Weather was epic--cool to start but then warming up some by the middle of the front nine. Great grass range, nice warm up area, friendly staff with nice carts.

First time here--really fun course. Short holes, some long holes, elevated tee boxes to let your driver rip, some nice challenging tucked pins that they can put on some undulating greens. Some target holes from the tee but also a couple holes that are grip and rip. Really enjoyed the day here. No 2 holes alike, lots of variety, a lot of shot value--never a course that you would get bored playing.

Greens were rolling nice and smooth and were semi-firm. Most greens had slope and undulation to them. They held irons that were coming in high or with spin nicely. 8/10

Fairways were lush with your ball sitting up. Really no issue other than number 9 where they had some low lying wet areas. 8.5/10

Tees were lush, mostly all level and in good shape. 8/10

Rough was in decent shape, fairly lush, uniform. 8/10.

Was only in 1 greenside bunker on 18 that had some nice sand. Playing partners mentioned that some of the bunkers they were in were firmer and could have used more sand.

Would highly recommend this course.

Rode the Blacks this afternoon teeing off around 12:10pm on a Teeoff.com promo special for $19.00 with my buddies Mack and Brian. POP was 4 hrs 50 minutes following a scramble tournament and finishing just at sunset which was spectacular tonight. Great staff and practice facilities and the weather was perfect maybe up to a 1 club wind at times and in the high 60's for temps.

The greens were semi quick and rolling nicely. Receptive and soft. Generally in good shape with just very minimal bounces.

The fairways have become more winter firm and thin and provide some decent roll out. Never had a bad lie in the fairway.

Rough is green, lush and beautiful around green complexes and just outside the fairways. Was only in one bunker back of 17 green that was raked and firmer with plenty of sand underneath.

Tees were in good shape, mostly lush. They have re-sodded the back tees on 17 which look beautiful and are almost done with the re-sodding the back tees on number 8.

Olivas is in good shape for December and I would highly recommend this course. It is becoming a popular track so get an earlier tee time this time of year.

Walked the Oak Tees this morning 11/12/2018 teeing off at 10am joined by a very nice couple. Our POP was 4 hrs 50 minutes on a holiday which wasn't too bad. Weather was perfect around 70-75 degrees with hardly any wind. Fantastic staff here, great prices(paid $25.00) to walk and a very fun layout created by the Olympic Course architect Gil Hanse. Always a very peaceful vibe up here in Ojai with beautiful mountain backdrops.

The greens were very quick and in great shape. They were supposed to receive maintenance last week but they did not and other than 1/2 of number 1 green on the right side being punched all the greens were fast, smooth and holding irons beautifully. Staff should be commended.

Fairways are still nice and full and lush, mostly all green, no problem areas and for this late in the golf season that's awesome.

The tees were mostly all lush, some need leveling, but for the most part great shape.

The rough was in decent shape, some lush parts and some semi-lush spots.

I was in 2 greenside bunkers and they had super soft beach sand that you really need to thump the ball to get out. All bunkers looked well maintained and raked.

You can really tell that the new management is really putting a lot of effort into the course. On number 12 just right of the green under the trees they have re-sodded a big area that used to be dirt, looks fantastic.

Would highly recommend Soule Park.

Walked the Blues this afternoon 11/5/2018 with my buddies Brian and Mack. Joined by a very nice single Milan. Weather was perfect high 70's, low 80's with just a slight breeze. POP was 4 hrs 30 minutes and we paid their twilight rate of 22 bucks to walk. Very friendly staff checking us in, putting green is in great shape just like the greens on the course. They have done some re-seeding to the range and have some grass stalls available for players.

The greens were just beautiful. Quick, firm putting like glass. Hardly any ballmarks and holding irons with spin.

The fairways for this time of year are in good shape. Mostly green and lush. We saw several sprinklers on the front nine watering.

The rough around the greens is in great shape, very lush, very soggy and wet in spots almost like they are over watering.

The tees were level and lush. In good shape.

Was in one bunker greenside on number 11 that was raked on the firmer side and in good shape.

This course is so fun to play, its in great shape and very affordable. Highly Recommended.

Walked the Blacks this afternoon 10/29/2018 with my buddies Mack and Brian on a teeoff promo code for $19.00. Weather was perfect mid 70's with hardly wind. Packed tee sheet in the early afternoon as our POP was just shy of 5 hours. Very friendly staff, great practice area and great conditions at Olivas!

The fairways are still in great shape even this late in the year. We are almost in November and they are still super lush, green with great padded lies.

The rough was uniform, green and semi lush and in great shape as well.

The tees are always usually the highlight here and they did not disappoint being both level and lush with the par 3 divots filled in nicely.

The greens looked great to the naked eye and rolled semi-smooth with just a couple bounces. They are coming off maintenance on 10/8 and I would say they were almost back to regular shape--maybe give them a couple more days to a week. I fixed several extra divots. Still very playable.

Was not in any bunkers but they all looked raked and in great shape.

Great temps, fun layout, good prices and nice staff. If you love golf you will love this place. If you are looking for the fancy Country Club Clubhouse and amenities they don't have that here but they got everything else going on!

Rode the Blacks this afternoon 10/27/2018 on a Hot Deal Time for $21.00 at 12:56pm. Our POP was pretty brutal behind a college tourney. Almost a 3 hour front nine had me play the front nine again in only 1 hour. Paired with a really cool father/son for the 1st nine holes. Really cool starter and staff here. Nice putting green up top next to clubhouse, chipping green right next to 1st tee box and a big range with mats.

Grew up playing here but had not played here for a couple years. The course made some cool renovations in 2016 by putting new bunker complexes in and putting real deep beach sand in all the bunkers. They also reduced some turf and replaced those areas with wood chips, plants and shrub. I really like the changes they made.

The bunkers(was in 2 of them) contained really nicely raked beach sand. Some deep bunkers here that should be avoided. Plenty of greenside and fairway bunkers here.

The greens for looking like they might have been injected or punched weeks ago rolled quick and with just a few minor bumps. I liked the greens and thought they were in good shape.

The fairways were mostly all green with what I would call semi-lush lies.

The tees looked like they had just been re-sodded. Thanks to the marshall for letting me play all of the way on the back markers as he was following the end of the college tourney and moving the markers up as they finished.

The rough is mostly lush, Kikuyu and in decent shape.

I am bummed I did not get to play the back nine but could just not stomach a 6 hour round with the sun setting and me wanting to get back for the Dodger Game. Father/Son I played with stated that they played here last Saturday and the POP was not bad so I will chalk it up maybe to just this Saturday with the college event in front of us.

I would recommend playing here but you might want to try a middle of the week round rather than a weekend round here as this track gets a ton of play.

Walked the Oak Tees this morning 10/8/2018 with a 7:12am tee time with my buddy RGM2525. What a great and fun round! Weather was nice at tee off low 50's with no wind today and warming up on the back nine. We paid $28.00 walking and our POP was 3 hours 35 minutes following a nice 3some.

This is the nicest I have seen Soule Park ever. I have not played here since February and am just so impressed. They have new ownership and if you have not checked this place out you should. Right now its wall to wall green and lush with new sand in all the bunkers.

The greens are firm and mostly putting quick and smooth with just a few old ballmarks present that really did not effect putting. Would say rolling close to a 10 on the stimp and in great shape. I believe they can have up to 7 different hole locations on these huge undulating Gil Hanse surfaces.

The fairways were so lush they were Palm Springs quality. Thick, lush and green with great lies.

The tees were super lush, green and mostly all level.

The only bunker I was in was fairway bunker on 9 that had perfect raked sand. All bunkers contain new sand.

Rough was mostly all lush, very few dry spots. They were mowing some of the rough down.

I heard they just had a senior qualifier tournament up here and I can see why.

Highly recommended in great shape! Wish I lived a tad closer. I will return for sure.

Walked the Blues this afternoon 10/1/18 with my buddies Mack and Brian. POP was 4 hrs 35 minutes chasing the sun. Lots of people on the course post Ryder Cup. Weather was around 88 degrees tee off with the back nine cooling off. Just a beautiful afternoon with the winds dying down on the back nine. Paid $22.00 which is their twilight time at 2pm.

This is the nicest I have seen Rustic's fairways. They had full coverage in most all areas, green and great lies.

The tees were mostly all level and lush and also in beautiful shape.

Greens were in good shape rolling medium speed. Seen them much faster but I believe they are almost healed completely from earlier maintenance weeks ago.

Was in one sand bunker on #1 right greenside that was raked and firm and in good shape.

Greenside rough is just beautiful and pristine. Rough just outside the fairways can either be lush all the way down to hardpan depending on the hole.

This is the most beautiful back nine in the county. Just an awesome, fun, challenging course that is affordable and in great shape at this time. Highly Recommended--proud to call it my home course.

Rode the Blacks this afternoon 9/24/2018 for super twilight joined by my buddy RGM2525. We played the Canyon Crest/Creekside combo and had an absolute blast. Weather was perfect around 80 degrees with light winds. POP was around 3 hours 30 minutes.

The greens on both Canyon and Creekside were awesome today. Greens were super slick and quick with very little ballmarks. Its a shame they are punching all 27 holes this week(Ridgeline was done today)--with Creekside and Canyon Crest to follow in the next 2 days.

The fairways are so nice. Padded lush lies with your ball sitting up. Very little problem areas at all. Great shape!

The tees were lush and level. Nice to hit from--most of the 3 par divots were nicely filled in.

The rough is very green, uniform height and healthy in great shape.

Was not in any bunkers but they all looked raked. Playing partner described some as crusty on top with enough sand underneath.

This course is really in great shape. The greens will need some weeks to heal.

I would HIGHLY recommend this course to any golfer. A semi-private course with high end private conditions.

Thanks Moorpark CC. Will return soon.
