City Golf Courses

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.

This course offers unique challenges for players of all skill levels. Dramatically redesigned in 2007 from a traditional course to a link-style course, Olivas has become the destination of choice for those players looking for a challenging golf experience. Planted with Seashore Paspalum turf that offers a durable, smooth playing surface, Olivas Links has achieved a status most courses only dream about. In 2009, Golf Week Magazine named it one of the top ten municipal golf courses in the country.
