Ojai Country Club at Ojai Valley Inn was one of the first great "country retreat" golf courses in California, designed and built in 1923 under the direction of George C. Thomas Jr and Billy Bell. At the time hailed as a marvel of golfing architecture, Ojai Valley retains its excellent reputation and standards to this day.
Although quite short by modern PGA Tour standards, at less than 6300 yards from the tips, the tightish fairways, often lined by barancas and heavy brush, ensure that accuracy rather than big-hitting will be aptly rewarded. Around the fast, subtly sloping greens a stylish array of bunkering awaits any misjudged approach shots.
In 1999 two holes that were "lost" from the original layout (due to land demands made in WWII), were restored and reintroduced to the course.

In 1923, Edward Drummond Libbey (1854-19125), a wealthy Ohio glass manufacturer and philanthropist, commissioned California architect Wallace Neff to build the Ojai Country Club in the Spanish Colonial architectural style.
From its earliest days, guests felt the Inn was an escape, a sophisticated getaway that gave them the sense of being on their own private country estate. In 2004, an extensive renovation was completed which upgraded every corner of the resort while maintaining the historical integrity of the property.
