Check out the following courses and their websites. It's been a whiles since I've played them, but these would be what I can recommend out there.
Rustic Canyon GC
Links style course
They have 3 nines.
Ojai Valley Inn Golf
(have not played this in many years since they rerouted some holes)
In the Santa Barbara area:
Sand Piper GC
(40 miles up north from Ventura- coastal)
Rancho San Marcos GC
(40 miles up north from Ventura- inland/mountain)
Hope this helps. . . Enjoy your rounds!
