Ojai Valley Inn and Spa
905 Country Club Road
When Ojai Country Club was first built in 1923, it was hailed as “a marvel of golfing architecture.” Famed architects George C. Thomas, Jr. and Billy Bell wanted to make a course “…that the average golfer could enjoy his round without too great a penalty, and that a test must be afforded requiring the low-handicap man to play fine golf in order to secure pars.” The course succeeded in both of these things.
Over the years, the course has been played by Bing Crosby, Bob Hope, Will Smith, Kevin Costner, Michael Douglas and many other Hollywood stars. It has hosted seven PGA senior events and even been featured on NBC. It is truly one of the gems of Southern California.
After World War Two, the course was redesigned. Two of the original holes that Thomas designed were lost. In 1999, the spa reintroduced these holes, which they refer to as “The Lost Holes.” The holes have been fully restored and brought back within the point of the original layout. This adds an bit of historical excellence to the course.
In a setting as natural as Ojai, it really is only fitting that the resort is home to one of America’s premier Southern California golf resorts and championship golf courses. This 18-hole golf course plays 6,292 yards with a par 70, rating of 71.0 and a slope of 132. The many holes challenge golfers in unique ways with four par 4 holes that span over 400 yards. Golfers can try out their skills or improve their handicap at this amazing course.
