Buenaventura Golf Course
After a $6.5 million dollar renovation, including complete re-routing of the golf course and new playing surfaces, Buenaventura Golf course opened in March of 2005. With large bent grass greens, coupled with emerald green rye grass fairways, Buenaventura will be one of the finest municipal courses in the Southland. With subtle undulations and contours, all the greens have been re-sculpted using classic Bell designs. Beautiful mature trees line Buenaventura?s pristine fairways and white sand bunkers guard the greens. The new design enhances the woodlands feel that people loved so much about the old Buenaventura. The hazards look like they were not merely manufactured, but rather discovered in the landscape. Among the many new considerations for the new course, safety, playability, strategy and variety all played key rolls in the development of the new design. Originally designed by legendary golf course architect William Park Bell in 1932, Buenaventura attracted golfers until it closed in May 2004, for renovation. Bell collaborated with George Thomas Jr. on the Bel-Air, Riviera and Los Angeles Country Clubs. Evergreen Alliance Golf Limited and the City of Ventura brought in Forrest Richardson, experienced in Bell designs, to redesign Buenaventura Golf Course. Playing at just over 6,000 yards to a par of 70, Buenaventura emphasizes course management and is a shot maker?s delight. Aiming towards design features that were prevalent in the 1930s, the classic shapes and edges now transform the course as if one is stepping back in time.  Book tee times below!
