Played Rustic 5/28 the day before memorial day. The conditions out here were pretty much standard rustic, medium/fast firm greens & firm/fast fairways with excellent coverage. What I find so interesting about Rustic is how influential the grain is when putting out here. The grain runs towards the entrance to the course so anything that direction is typically smoother and much quicker.
I love rustic, it just suits my style of play very well. My only complaint is the quality of the sand (basically dirt) but this kind of goes with the rugged links style here. The tee boxes were all level with minimal damage aside from a couple par 3's and when I mentioned above the firmness of the greens I meant it. Basically rock hard and required clubbing down to allow for release, even with the shorter irons. I'll be back out there soon!» Close

Played on Saturday May 27th. I was expecting perfect conditions and that is what we got, except.... for the greens. I was very surprised to see small residual holes from what appeared to be 1/4" tine holes? The grass has grown around the holes nicely but everyone in our 4some agreed there was some sort of small tine punching that had been done recently. Perhaps they did some minimal maintenance earlier in the week. I'm not saying these were your typical punched out greens but the putting lines didn't run all that true and the speed was about medium at best. Given the recent reviews I was expecting pure putting surfaces so I was a bit let down, but all in all the course was still in tremendous conditioning.
The course its self had very lush conditions and posed a decent challenge, especially around the greens. I found myself with tricky pitch shots and having to navigate the contouring of the greens several times with a wedge in my hand. I really do enjoy this golf course and will definitely be back later this summer.» Close

Where do I start with this place? Trump National is a course practically in my backyard that I have been dying to play ever since I was a kid and Ocean Trails lost a few holes to the ocean! Well, I finally pulled the trigger after finding a discounted rate online and I must admit it was totally worth it.
I'll start this review with a disclaimer that this is an extremely difficult golf course and I can understand why many people think its "tricked up" or "gimicky". However, I found the course to have a great mix of holes, with maybe 1-3 bad holes (hole 14 comes to mind as a tricked up par 5 that almost double dog legs and has a slight blindspot). Customer service was A+ and Manny the starter was fantastic! The driving range was pretty good but nothing great. I think my biggest complaint was the practice facility. Yes the range is grass and in good condition but the upper range is NOT level which was pretty disappointing. Also, the range is maybe only 275 yards long? I carry my drives about 300 and I landed my very first drive on the roof of a home. There were no signs indicating this and I think for the price you pay the driving range is very underwhelming. Another major knock is there is no short game facility for public use. There are people paying $200-$300 a round and they don't get access to the short game facility. Again, another major disappointment.
The conditions were pretty much immaculate from tee to green. Fairways were lush with nothing but pure lies. The greens were excellent, rolling about a 10.5-11, however, with all of the undulation the greens feel MUCH faster especially when putting down hill/down grain. I found myself in a few bunkers and they were 10/10 with the perfect amount of sand. Not sure what else I can say about the conditions, other than they were perfect.
The black tees play about 7,300 and have a course rating of 74.6/145 (ish). I played from the tips today and man was it a real challenge (shot an 80 w/ 3 birdies and a couple doubles). Being a 2 handicap, It really liked the challenge and I will come back later this summer when the price is right again. Also, if you are wild off the tee bring PLENTY of balls. The guy I played with maybe lost 10-12 balls! Enjoy.» Close

Played on Friday, May 19th. I have always loved playing Ojai and have come to expect exceptional playing conditions and customer service and yesterday was no different. The guys in the proshop and the starter were awesome. These guys treat you like a member at a private club.
The course was in terrific shape: striped lush fairways, manicured rough and aprons, and near perfect greens rolling about a 11, maybe quicker. The course it's self has a great mix of par 4's and 3's. I would say it's weakpoint may be the par 5's, however, although not overly long the 5's still require accuracy off the tee (only my opinion though). The final 4 holes are quite challenging and require great second shots to score, including hole 16, possibly one of the best par 3's in California.
All in all, I highly recommend getting out here early this summer as the greens and course are playing great. Pace of play during the weekdays can be 3.5 hours which is also a major plus of coming up here!» Close

Played on Friday 5/12/17 for my 2nd 18 of the day (played skylinks in the AM). I haven't played here in several years and I was pleasantly surprised with the overal conditioning. The greens were running medium to medium/fast and rolled pretty true. The greens all have 2 cuts surrounding them, a very tight first cut and a medium 2nd cut. I was very impressed with the level of detail surrounding the greens and aprons. The fairways were filled in very nice and were nice and green. The rough was a bit patchy but decently thick in a few areas but nothing crazy. Also, the bunkers were all in nice condition. Overall, I would rank think above skylinks and the surrounding LB public tracks. I used to prefer skylinks over El Do but I think I'll be coming back here more often because it's consistently more challenging and, at the moment, in better condition from tee to green.» Close
