Devotees of Soule Park Golf Course will likely find their links under new management this summer. Once approved by the Ventura County Board of Supervisors (BOS), a 20-year lease agreement with Ojai Golf LLC is scheduled to go into effect July 1.
With the current contract set to expire in June, the county issued a request for proposals for a new management agreement, said Greg Bergman, deputy director of fiscal management for the Ventura County Parks Department. Three bids were submitted, he said, with Ojai Golf's being selected as optimum. 
The lease agreement is expected to go before the BOS for a vote June 6, Bergman said.
A public meeting about the transition has been slated for June 14 in the Soule Park Golf Course Banquet Room at 5 p.m.
