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.

The original plan was to play somewhere in the LA area, but given the weather report, decided to stay in the OC. Good decision! Weather was great, not a drop of rain and reasonably mild temps. Plus not as busy as expected. (maybe the forecast kept the people away?)
Prior recent review was spot on. Greens not nearly as good as normal. Slower and bumpy than usual. Otherwise conditions are about as expected. I did not find even one bunker, so not fair for me to comment on them, but they did appear thin/hard.
I enjoy playing this short course as it has a lot of character and some interesting green complexes. A little pricey for what you get, but it's Orange County ! Plus for me it's not all that far from home. Better than fighting the rain/traffic playing up in LA.» Close

Back to the Goat on a very cold morning. Although we had a 6:30am tee time, nobody there, so we waited until 6:45 to hit it. I normally walk everywhere I can, but took a cart today because I was playing with a friend. While the cart was nice, it does not allow you to "get loose"
The greens were the best I have ever seen them. We had zero cut greens and they were still pretty quick and difficult. Had they been cut, they would be brutally hard. ( In all fairness, I do not play here all that often) Fairways were green and for the most part, had plenty of grass. I was in one bunker and there was so much sand it was difficult to rake it when finished from my footprints. Tees/rough were just so/so.
This is simply the most difficult 4400 yard course I have ever played- period. If you play from the "tips" on every hole, there are some really tough shots, and give the severity of the greens, makes scoring here a real challenge.
While I would not want to play here every day, each time I do play here I thoroughly enjoy myself. Fun Golf !» Close

After fighting frost delays most of February, now it's the rain. For those of you unfamiliar with Coto - south, even just a little rain causes the cross-overs between some holes flood and the course is forced to close. 40 degrees at tee off today (6:40am) and but for the rain there would again have been frost. Just can't seem to win.
To my surprise, a number of the fairways have become very thin and have bare areas near some of the greens?? The greens however are excellent and most receptive to shots. The bunker project is about 50% complete now, so if the weather co-operates, they could finish in a few more weeks.
On the plus side, with the rains, the dormant fairways are turning green and at least look good, even if they don't play as good as they look.» Close

Had not played here for a while so decided to risk the chance of rain and get out early. No problem, not too crowded ! I had concerns about back nine play, but it wasn't too bad, only had a few players out in front of me, so just played two balls for the finishing holes to slow down.
Agree with previous review by Sammy3. Greens decent but too slow for my taste. Fairways better than expected. Only in one bunkers and it was fine.
While not my favorite course in the area, with the discount on the internet, worth the $$. I would rather play the Goose, but they do not allow singles in the morning, so Paradise Knolls gets my money.» Close

6:30am tee time, which meant it was pitch black outside! I thought we had the first time, but when we checked in, was told we were third off?? We waited on the tee behind a bunch of people, until it was 6:30, then since nobody was willing to hit it, off we went. (If you make the tee time, you have to be willing to tee off regardless of conditions!)
Greens were the highlight of the course. They rolled very nicely, and were reasonably quick.. Bunkers were also excellent. Fairways/rough were iffy, some good, some not so good.
Being first out, great pace for the first 11 holes, then we hit the back nine play. Took 1 1/2 hours to play the first 11 holes, and 2 hours to play the next 7 holes. But it was a beautiful morning, so we didn't mind all that much. Santa Anita is probably my favorite LA County course, and for $16.50, what's not to like!» Close
