The Victoria Lakes course opened in 2008 and provides a great test of Ventura County golf. Voted one of the best courses in Ventura County, the greens are poa annua grass and the fairways are Greg Norman (GNI) hybrid bermuda. Like the Vineyard course, Victoria Lakes harbors eight acres of water. You will especially enjoy our version of Amen Corner when you encounter holes 12, 13, and 14.The Victoria Lakes course was the proud host of the American Junior Golf Association in 2009, 2011 and 2013. Originally designed by Billy Bell Jr. in the mid-1980s, the Vineyard Course has gone through several redesigns providing ocean and panoramic views of Oxnard and Ventura County. This Ventura County golf course is renowned for its wide-open fairways, low lying roughs, superb bent/poa annua greens and five lakes spanning the back nine holes. It is highlighted by the par-three 18th "Island" hole measuring from 122 yards to 191 yards and usually playing into the wind.
