What's in tom weber's Golf Bag
Last Updated: October 25, 2017
I have been playing golf since I was 11 years old. Grew up in Chicago, played on the high school and college golf teams. Moved to California in 1970. I play a lot of golf, average about 350 rounds a year. The only thing that keeps me off the course is frost. I'll play in rain, wind, fog, heat/cold, etc. I play super early every day because I hate waiting around.
As I age, it has become difficult to accept that I can no longer play to the level I once played too. While I still love the game, I have tended to isolate myself because I am embarrassed by the deterioration of my skill level. However, I am still on a quest to accomplish my long time goal of shooting my age.

Expecting rain, did not want to travel too far or spend a ton of $$, because I wasn't certain I'd get the entire round in. As expected, not very busy, so not a problem getting out. Course was actually in better condition than I thought it would be. Greens rolled well, fairways lush and wet ! Bunkers decent considering the recent rains.
The biggest disappointment was not finding Dennis in the pro shop. There was always a comfort level whenever I visited here. Always enjoyed talking with him prior to my round. He will be missed.» Close

Always enjoy playing the Crossings ! The staff was very friendly and accommodating, allowing our twosome to get out before our scheduled tee time, right behind a single. As expected great pace of play UNTIL we reached #17, when we ran into an eightsome on the tee, but they allowed us to play through, then only to find another eightsome on #18. ??? We waited for one of the groups to finish, then played through the second foursome.
The course was in really nice overall condition, greens, fairways, bunkers, only the rough was a bit inconsistent. Greens slower than they appeared, but truly some of the better conditions I've seen at a course for a while. Kudus to the superintendent.
Really makes you appreciate living in Southern California when you can play in your shirtsleeves on a January morning. What a morning - no fog, no wind, no rain, sunny, just validates my decision to move here 50 years ago !» Close

Oceanside is becoming a "go to" course because I never have any problem getting out early with last minute notice. I recognize this may not be everyone's favorite golf course, but it is a lot of fun to play ! Except for holes #15 & #16, all the holes are very reachable for this senior, even from the blue tees, plus they provide interest. 15 & 16 are just long straight holes, for us shorter hitters, making them somewhat uninteresting.
Greens rolled very nicely, faster than they appeared. The greenside bunkers were excellent, ugly sand, but lots of it and well maintained. Fairways are good, not great. The areas which they have removed sod for water conservation, give the course a rather unpleasant look, but those areas are not really inplay anyway. (Or shouldn't be)
Staff is always accommodating. If this course were closer, I'd play here a lot more frequently.» Close

Woke up at my normal time (4am) and checked the temperature at Coto (36 degrees and getting colder as we approach sunrise) The easy decision - off to San Clemente. Good decision as I got off in the second group. A much more pleasant 45 degrees according to the car )
Paired with three other seniors who rode ( I walked) Never waited for that first group out so it worked out perfectly. Decent pace at 3 hours 40 minutes.
Greens were good, quick due to the cold conditions, and firm at times. Good coverage on the fairways, plenty of well raked sand in the bunkers. Some areas in the rough could use attention, but still playable.
Nice to know that there is always at least one golf course that never has a frost delay.» Close

Looked forward to playing my final round of 2018 at one of my favorite public courses. I have always enjoyed the rural feeling, the mountains in the background, and the rolling contours of the fairways.
Our foursome had the third time off at 6:45am. Not nearly as cold as expected or predicted. In fact it was quite pleasant, considering it is December 31st. Very nice pace of play, about 3 hours 40 minutes for our walking foursome. Never waited, never had anyone behind us, so played at a nice relaxed pace.
However the course is NOT in condition right now. The fairways were very thin, borderline mud in some areas. Numerous areas in the rough exhibited the same conditions and frequently around the greens, there were areas of just dirt - no grass what so ever. Pitching to these crowned greens off super thin/tight lies makes for one very difficult task. This combined with the fact that the greens were very firm (Due to the cold weather?) made for some tough short game challenge. Despite the firmness of the greens, there putted very slow? Found two bunkers and both had well maintained sand.
I'm hopeful that the warm spring/summer will return Santa Anita to better conditions ? However the cost ($16.50) is such bargain, it's difficult to be too disappointed with any kind of golf on New Years Eve. Happy New Year !!!» Close
