History & Photos
Soule Park Golf Course is one of the Country’s most highly regarded municipal golf courses. Situated in the spectacular Ojai Valley, Soule Park was ranked the 48th best municipal golf course in the country by Golf Week magazine in 2014. The golf course at Soule Park was originally designed by renowned architect William F. Bell in 1962. Bell was responsible for many other iconic Southern California golf courses including Torrey Pines (North and South) in San Diego and Sandpiper in Santa Barbara.
In 2005 Soule Park underwent a golf course renovation led by Gil Hanse who is one of the industry’s most highly regarded modern-day golf course architects. Hanse was the architect responsible for designing the Olympic Golf Course for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio, and has recently redesigned both the North and South golf courses at Los Angeles Country Club. Today, the course layout plays to just over 6800 yards from the Championship Tees, with a USGA Course Rating of 72.8 and a Slope of 128.
