City Golf Courses

Get Started With Golf

The City of Ventura owns and operates two municipal golf courses less than two miles apart that offer two unique experiences for residents and guests. Buenaventura Golf Course is a more traditional golf course that features a bar and grill, pro shop and practice putting green. Olivas Links, located adjacent to the historic Olivas Adobe courtyard and rose garden, is a links-style course that offers a more challenging experience for golfers in the family and boasts a full practice facility including driving range and a chipping bunker.

The City of Ventura offers a variety of group classes and clinics to introduce new and returning players to the game of golf. Family & Friends and classes for Women Only are offered throughout the year on Saturdays between 9 am - 1 pm at Olivas Links Golf Course.
