What's in tom weber's Golf Bag
Last Updated: October 5, 2016
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.

I'm excited because the bunker project is nearing completion. (Still 4 holes to go) The bunkers which have been finished are fantastic ! But I still hope to stay out of them. The new sand plays very different than the old sand, so it will take some time to adjust.
Course looking very good right. After the rains, everything is green and the contrast with the Augusta White sand is stunning. The changes to the bunkering has made the course easier, at least for the 'average" player. Not much change for the "good" players however, which seems appropriate.
Green speeds seem to fluctuate a little too much from day to day, but otherwise the course is playing well.» Close

A little late on the review, played Wednesday morning hoping to avoid the rain. I guess because of the forecast, the course was rather empty, so had no problem getting out and around quickly. The weather actually wasn't too bad, a little rain but nothing very hard.
Course was about as expected, based upon the prior review. Greens were decent, but a bit bumpy/slow. Fairways were good/bad depending upon where the ball came to rest. Since I did not expect much, I wasn't that disappointed with conditions. I was happier that the weather was suspect which allowed me to get out and around so easily.
I realize Willowick is not a "top tier" course, but I always enjoy my times here. I miss these old style traditional courses, like the ones I grew up playing» Close

While I do not play here all that often, I always enjoy my experience. The staff was great, and for $17, well worth the $$. The foursome who had the first tee time, allowed us to go off ahead of them, which was very nice of them. We zipped around until we caught a foursome on #15, then just played slow for the last 4 holes. Still able to finish in 2 hours 20 min even with the delay.
Course was actually in way better condition than I expected. (first hole still a par 3) Other than the fringe areas, which are always crappy, the actual fairways/greens/tee boxes were in good condition. Greens rolled nicely, albeit a bit slow for my taste. If you play from the "tips" on every tee, there are some good shots on this course - fun !
While I would not choose to play here every time, it was a positive experience and had a nice quick enjoyable morning of golf (And cheap too)» Close

Following sngernz's review, not much has changed. Greens still have not recovered from the punching/sanding, I suspect it will be a couple weeks until they're decent again. The rest of the course is fairly good. The rough was uncut in places, and the bunkers needed to be groomed, but I think I was ahead of maintenance ?
I like this course, particularly since it's the closest course to my home, but it's still a bit pricey, even with the creek card and senior rates. But I guess by the time you factor in time and gas, it's probably "a wash" compared to traveling somewhere else?» Close

I just flat out like this course! Fits my eye! If it weren't so far from home, I would play here a lot more. I never have a problem getting out early, pace of play always great, and it's a fun course to play. Enjoy the feeling that it is secluded and not bordered by houses, freeways, etc.
The course was in very good condition, but the greens, while they looked quick, were far too slow for my taste. A few were bumpy, but overall, OK. Fairways were green and lush. My only complaint was the greenside bunkers. I was in three. One had lots of sand, the other two were super thin, almost like hardpan. Never the less, played on a perfect spring morning, clear, warm, no wind at all. Nice pace at just under 2 1/2 hours. Great way to start the week !» Close
