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.

Hadn't played Lakewood for sometime, so taking advantage of the senior discount, decided to brave the potential rain and booked a 6:44 am tee time. We actually got out in the third group out, so pace was decent at a little over three hours.
Green were the best part of the course. Rolled pretty true and had reasonable speed. Fairways were inconsistent. Same with the rough, all depended upon where the ball came to rest. I was in several bunkers and except that they were unraked, plenty of sand and overall fairly good.
Nice change of pace to play here, and because we teed off early, able to avoid the typical slow play frequently encountered here. Today I was smart and did not play the "tips" and found the course much friendlier and playable. (Maybe I'm getting smarter in my old age?)» Close

Nice to get back out on the South course where the greens are fast, but still playable. (Fair) Fairways looking good despite the absence of water, much drier which provides some needed roll out. They are scheduled to begin a total bunker renovation beginning in February which will mirror the North course. It will be interesting to see how many bunkers they either eliminate of reduce in size. (When they did the North, they reduced the total sand by 40%)
Very pleasant morning with no frost threat. Hard to complain golfing early morning in January in shirtsleeves.» Close

I understand from reading recent reviews on various other courses that the greens on a number of courses are firm and fast. Hey it's winter and I get that. But I have played a number of "away" courses over the past few months, and none are as ridiculously unfair as the greens are on Coto north. I checked with the super and learned some are running 15 on the stimp. That's crazy fast. On several holes, it's almost like miniature golf, where the ball comes back to you if it does not go into the hole. Over the past few rounds I can't tell you how many balls I have putted off the green, and I mean from only 10-15 feet away.
Makes no sense because the greens on the south course are also very fast, but at least fair,
The rest of the course is fine, despite the absence of rain, fairways are still fairly green and lush. No issues with the rough, tees, bunkers, etc.» Close

Looking to kill some time while the "boss" was at Brea mall. Not very crowded, so was able to get out without any problem. Course is in winter condition. Very dry and dormant fairways. Greens are the best part. Decent, but certainly not great. Because of the dormant grass, everything just looks "scruffy" but it actually played better than it looked.
Staff was nice. As mentioned not busy so other than one slow group, which I played through, only took an hour to finish. Beautiful weather for early January. Sure glad I no longer reside in Chicago !» Close

Decided to attempt to take advantage of their birthday special. (Within 7 days of your birthday) I had concerns about frost, and when I pulled into the parking lot, my car showed 37 degrees. I was certain they would call frost, but to my surprise, they said no frost!
However, despite the cold, it was very busy, which surprised me given it is New Years Day. I teed off second behind a single, who finally allowed me to play through after #9. Despite the fact that I played the front nine in 52 minutes (In a cart) there was a couple ladies right on my tail. Once I got through the single, I put some distance between us, finishing in 1 hour 45 minutes, which honestly is too fast to enjoy the round. I was kind of hoping to play a couple balls and enjoy a more leisurely pace, something around 2 - 2 1/2 hours.
The greens were the best part of the course. They rolled well and were very receptive to holding shots. Plus their speed was not so fast that you could be a bit more aggressive. (The greens at Coto are so fast now, every putt is played defensively) Fairways are very thin and dormant, which provided lots of roll, but are very "tight". The one bunker I was in was great ! Rough also dormant and thin/patchy.
Played well, which was surprising given the super cold temperatures and the pace I had to play. Temeku, I mean Legends, has never been a favorite of mine, but it does have a number of good holes, so I'm happy I made the decision to make the drive and start the new year with a positive beginning.» Close
