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.

I always enjoy playing this course because the staff is very accommodating, the senior rate is a very reasonable, and the course generally is in good condition, plus it's just a fun track.
Greens were the best part of the course by far. The rolled well and were much quicker than expected. No issues with the fairways from the recent rain, both bunkers I found had lots of well manicured sand. A few of the tee boxes were a bit beat up, but nothing too severe.
Dos Lagos provides a pleasant challenge with several real birdie holes, but also enough of a test so as to keep one's interest» Close

7:08am tee time, the first "non-member" time available. I had concerns because there must have been 6-7 groups out in from of our threesome, but we were assured that they played quickly, so pace of play would be fast. For once, things were correctly represented. We played in 3hours 8 minutes, which considering how many groups went out in front of us, very impressed.
The groups were without doubt the firmest greens I have ever played. The balls actually bounced as if on cement. No chance to stop even a well struck wedge. They rolled well, but were slower than expected. Fairways were nice, bunkers had plenty of well manicured sand, tee boxes generally in good shape.
Since I play almost exclusively early, I encounter a lot of staff in the pro shops who are "not morning people", but Mark was terrific. Friendly & accommodating. Same with the starter Don. Both these gentlemen were a pleasure to deal with. Always nice to start your day even before the round on a positive note.
I don't play here very often, but very much enjoyed the course, despite the rock hard greens. Note, they are punching greens beginning Tuesday 3/19/19.» Close

It was nice to play here with mowed fairways ! Even so, the fairways are very soft so the course is playing long. Greens have recovered from the recent punching, rolled well, but still little slower than usual. Fairways lush, rough is spotty. Bunkers are excellent.
Between the frost and flooding the crossovers, this course has been closed a lot of days over the past 5-6 weeks, so it's nice to be able to now play both courses again.» Close

I always look forward to playing Goat Hill. The price is right, never have an issue getting out early, staff is accommodating, and the course is just flat out fun to play, albeit a bit frustrating at times. You can hit some shots which appear to be great, and find yourself in an impossible situation to get the ball up and down to save par.
The prior reviews from the GK family were spot on, so not much to add relative to condition. I really was surprised the course was as playable given all the recent rains. Having new carts is a real positive. This is one of the few courses I take a cart, because it is just so much easier, which is crazy considering the yardage on this course.
I highly recommend to anyone who has not yet played here to give it a shot. You'll either love it or hate - no middle ground» Close

Last minute choice to play, so being able to secure the second time off at 6:45am (Actually went out first at 6:30) was a bonus. Plus playing for just $15 is a no brainer. Course was much drier than I anticipated, no real wet spots, ball actually got some roll out. Greens are far and away the best part of the course. They were much quicker than expected, and had more undulation than I remembered. Only in one bunker, but it was well manicured with plenty of sand. Fairways were for the most part decent, a mix of thin and normal lies. I have never played a course which had so many tee boxes which were not level. I played all the way back, even though the blue markers were generally on the same pod as the white, so maybe they have just decided not to maintain the "tips"
Certainly not my favorite course, but as I said, $15 is hard to pass up. No issue with pace on the front nine, but ran into a two in a cart on the back who were just plain slow! 1 hour 15 minutes on the front, but 1 hour 45 on the back following the two younger guys riding in a cart. (We're two old seniors walking and playing from the tips, and they still struggled to stay ahead of us?)
Again the course was very playable, not wet at all and the greens were excellent, so if you're a senior - go for it !» Close
