The Ojai Valley Inn’s golf course traces its Golden Age architecture to California legends Billy Bell and George C. Thomas Jr., who designed Riviera, Bel-Air and Los Angeles country clubs. It’s location 75 miles north of L.A. in the Topa Topa Mountains has always been a magnet for Hollywood celebrities like Bing Crosby, Bob Hope, Will Smith and Kevin Costner. Famous pros such as Arnold Palmer, Gary Player, Lee Trevino, Chi Chi Rodriguez and Ben Crenshaw competed at Ojai in seven Senior PGA Tour events (now the PGA Tour Champions) and at two other EMC2 Golf Skill Challenges. The par 70 layout only stretches to 6,305 yards, but with six par 4s longer than 400 yards and three par 3s more than 200 yards, it’s no pushover thanks a redesign by Jay Morrish in 1988. The addition of two original “lost holes” brought back to life in 1999 has restored Ojai to its classic roots.
