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.

Didn't feel like driving too far, so San Clemente fit the bill. Always able to get out here as the staff is very accommodating. As prior review indicated, greens are the highlight of the course right now. Also impressed with the fairways. I am not a fan of Kikuya, but wasn't too bad to play from.
The course just has nice park-like feeling about it, weather is always great here and holes are challenging without being overly difficult. Whenever I walk off this course, I understand why so many people like this place !» Close

I know that Oceanside is not everyone's cup of tea, but I really enjoy playing this course. It's fun, some interesting holes, not redundant, doesn't force you to do anything you can not do. The only holes I'm not a big fan of are #15 & #16, because from the blue tees (Which I play) they are just too long for me now. The other 16 holes are fine, just these two.
The greens were far and away the best part of the course. Rolled true, faster than expected, and very receptive to well struck shots. Bunkers were good, not great. Fairways had some bare spots, but were generally very good. Very little rough, only a few feet adjacent to the fairways which was not good, and once you left the rough, God only knows where your ball will end up, rolling forever on the dirt/gravel.
No problem getting out first this morning. Teed off at 6:15am, and my bride and I really humped it because we were told the men's club was going off he back at 7:30am, allowing us only a little more than an hour to walk the front. (We made it in one hour three minutes and the men's club was teeing off early ! WTF. However when they saw us walking up, they apologized and invited us to go ahead. Thank you Men's Club !
Great day ! Perfect weather. Other than having to play so quickly on the front, a very enjoyable round of golf» Close

6:00am tee time on Monday. Arrived at 5:30am - what a zoo ! People EVERYWHERE ! Waited a few minutes after they opened the door to the Pro Shop, then waited to check in. It was 5:57 before we finally paid and I asked if they were running late. I was told, no they're on time ???? So asked "Does that mean we can walk to the tee and hit off? " No response. I think the guy got the message because he then called our name a few minutes later as 3rd off, so we actually only teed off about 15 minutes late.
The greens were the best part of the course. Rolled well, very soft and receptive, but too slow for my taste. Fairways were not good. Lots of areas which were very thin/sparse. Bunkers were very wet, but playable.
Despite all the people, who actually began teeing off at 5:30, we finished in under 4 hours, which surprised me. Not good for a 6am tee time, but still better than I expected. And for $16.50 hard to complain too much» Close

I actually had intended to play Chino Creek, but the last review indicated the greens on Butterfield were nice, so switched. Good decision as the greens were in fact very nice and rolled well. I expected the fairways to be horrible, but while there are certainly bare areas, for the most part they aren't all that bad. Rough was a 50/50 deal, sometimes decent, sometimes not so good. Both bunkers I found were well manicured with enough sand.
Perhaps because I kinda know what to expect when I play here, I am rarely disappointed. This is just old style, solid, basic, inexpensive golf with no frills. (Like I grew up playing) So long as you're not expected too much, there is plenty to enjoy playing the El Prado courses. The staff is always great and I never seem to encounter any problems getting out early.» Close

First off at 6:06am. Just light enough to see. Obviously being off first, no issues with pace of play. The first thing I noticed was how wet the course was, particularly many of the greenside bunkers which were in many cases, half full of water, and the remainder of the sand almost like mud or where the sand was thin, rock hard. Fairways were green and lush, with numerous roped off areas where they had apparently over watered? The rough in spots was like U S Open rough, while in other spots at least reasonable. Very easy to lose a ball in the heavy rough.
Staff was great, very accommodating. For the first time ever I played the blue tees, rather than the blacks. On most of the holes I did not find the course too different, but on holes #2, #5, #9, & #17, it made a world of difference for this senior golfer. (I could now actually reach the greens in regulation !)
Enjoyed my round here. Course is always a challenge, and has a number of really fun holes and the great views are an added bonus» Close
