Situated along the Ventura Harbor overlooking the Santa Clara River, Olivas Links enjoys coastal breezes that make it cool in the summer and warm in the winter, providing perfect conditions for golf year-round. The golf course has a links-style layout that closely follows the natural swales and curves of the landscape and separated by bands of fescue and wild grasses. The course is mostly open but there are some large pine trees scattered throughout. Its seaside location subjects the golf course to strong winds, especially on the front nine. The challenging layout offers multi-tiered greens and contoured mounding along the fairways. There are also deep bunkers strategically placed throughout Olivas Links, but the openness of the course places a stronger emphasis on hitting the right spot on the fairway or getting the correct angle of approach to the green rather than avoiding the bunkers.

    Excellent place through and through. From the practice facilily to the golf course. Olivas is one of if not the best golf destination in Ventura Co.

    I played this course in the summer of 2009. I was on my own and played with a group of three others who made me very welcome.
    The course was good. A links style course although inland. My only criticisms are that the rough around the greens should be tighter to give a more "linksy" feel to it and that the bunkers should be more penal for the same reason.
    The staff were very helpful and the company on the day was great. An enjoyable holiday course well worth a visit
