Olivas Links 2016 Winner Worth the Green Fee for Ventura County
This year we expanded our awards to 11 regions! @GreenskeeperOrg Winner #2016 @VenturaGolf #Golf #WorththeGreenFee #Ventura #Breaking
We’ve waited all year for the results, and the results are finally in. Greenskeeper.org proudly presents it’s 2016 Worth the Green Fee Awards for Ventura County.
“Worth the Green Fee” is awarded to golf courses open to the public listed on Greenskeeper.org that stand out above the rest with our site users at providing a consistent, quality golf experience at an outstanding price.
Let’s face it, golf can be expensive. But it doesn’t have to be. All you have to know is where to play to get your best value and that’s something Greenskeeper.org excels. In addition to helping golfers decide where to play their next round of golf based on reviews, ratings, and maintenance alerts, we’ve recently introduced our GK Coupons service to extend their deals directly to our avid golfers. Our GK Coupons program has been received very well by both Golf Course Operator and Golfer.

Walked the blues with my buddy Mack yesterday 12/17/16 on a cold high 50’s tee off start a little earlier than our scheduled 12:03pm tee time. We paid $36.00 which is their standard twilight time which starts at 12pm. The course was pretty empty considering the colder weather and a nice brisk maybe 10mph breeze at times. Our POP was only 3 hours 25 minutes walking waiting a little on the back nine.
The greens are in very good shape. Soft on high irons and shots with spin while running firm on all other shots. Putting semi-decently with fairly pure surfaces. Not to many ballmarks today but could see evidence of some softer footprints on some common pin placement areas. Overall would rate the greens a 8/10.
The fairways have pretty much gone dormant brown and even with the colder air produced some roll out and long drives. You still get a decent lie at present time on the fairways. These fairways always start to perk up and get better in the spring. Overall rating on the fairways 6/10.
Most tees were lush, fairly level and in good shape. Some tees could use some more sand mix on the par 3’s. Overall rating the tees 7/10.
Was in one greenside bunker on #18 that was firmer than normal due to the overnight rains the day(s) prior.
The greenside rough and the rough lining the fairways was lush in spots up to 2 inches and depending on where you were could be more thin or more lush than usual.
Great staff, great practice areas, great back nine and great prices–especially if you can snag a online time. This is my buddy Mack’s home course–we had a great time!

Why Did We Expand the Regions?
It’s simple. Greenskeeper.org has been growing. We expanded the number of regions because golfers like you have reported about golf course conditions in more places you play. In short golfers come to us if they want informative, relevant golf course reviews and it’s all due to your, our GK Community’s, diligence. You let us know your experiences and well if we hear about it everyone else does too.
Why so Many Regions?
Golf is an experience and every experience is unique. Different golf courses offer different experiences. What we look for in golf course reviews offers a little insight into every golf course we play. Not just one point of view but many, and by providing many different points of view you get a clearer picture of what each golf course has to offer. To that end we felt it necessary to provide regions with their own highlighted golf course. Local players can enjoy the fact there is a great facility they can play just around their corner. Golfers looking to experience new golf courses can play these and experience first-hand these unique golf experiences. Put simply, we allow not just your high-end. daily fee courses to shine but the local municipal as well. They all deserve a fair shot and they all deserve to shine.
