What's in tom weber's Golf Bag
Last Updated: April 24, 2019
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 do not play here very often, in part because of geography, and in part because of cost. Secured what I thought was the first time off at 6:30am, but turned out two groups teed off in front of us ???? That said, there was no issue with pace of play because while our threesome played in 2 hrs 45 min, we never had to wait
Course is kept in overall excellent condition, you can just see the attention to detail in the areas surrounding the tees and cart paths. Greens were nice, a bit on the slow side and a bit firm, but still very good. Fairways also very nice, a little "tight" for my skill set, but that did provide for some rollout. Tee boxes well maintained. Bunkers were just OK. (Too wet !)
While everyone was nice, the guy who checked us in was a bit gruff, not the most pleasant individual. Not rude, just not friendly, at least to our group anyway. Despite my poor play, enjoyed the course and am glad I made the return trip here. Recommend this course, with the advice that you play from the appropriate tees.» Close

Considering they just punched these greens on Tuesday, 8/13, (small tines) they rolled remarkably well and still maintained good speed. The remainder of the course is in nice condition, fairways were lush but still provide some roll out. Bunkers, tee boxes in good shape.
Very empty this morning, perhaps people fearing the greens would not be good? Works for me!» Close

Taking advantage of the recently received "thirty dollar Thursday" deal, able to secure at the last minute the first time off at 6:30am today. Thanks to Dale in the pro shop, he let us out 20 minutes early, so we could beat a reverse shotgun which started on holes 17 & 18 at 8:30. We were able to finish at 8:20 so it all worked out.
The course was in pretty good condition considering. Greens not very quick, particularly the back nine because we got ahead of the mowers. But they rolled well and held shots nicely. Most of the fairways were good, with a few "iffy" areas. A few tee boxes, #4 in particular were in poor shape. (Blue tees) Bunkers weren't great, but playable.
I have never been a big fan of this course, mostly because I am not crazy about playing uphill greens, and there are plenty of them on this course. Plus many of the greens have tiers and you are unable to determine exactly where on the tier the flag sits. Course has a few very nice holes, but generally kind of redundant.
Enjoyed the round because pace was great, conditions were nice, staff (Dale) was execellent and the price was right.» Close

Since I was already a long way from home and had to drive right past Knollwood, I thought that for $16.50 I'd stop by and try to get out. Even if I did not finish, well worth the price and since I rarely get up this way, why not? I guess because of the heat. (Almost 100 degrees) not all that busy.
Course was in much better condition that I expected. Greens being the best part, but even the fairways, rough, tee boxes were in nice shape. Greens really held the shots well !
I have to admit that I did not play too well, perhaps walking 36 at my age, combined with the heat, that was to be expected. However despite my lack of performance, enjoyed what turned out to be a very long grueling day, on a few courses I seldom have the opportunity to play. Recommend Knollwood right now.» Close

Why is it that many of my favorite golf courses are located so far from home? I really like Simi Hills, because it is a fun track, staff is always great, price for seniors is a real bargain, course in great condition, everything you would want from a golf course, except that it is just such a long way from my home.
As prior review indicates, course is very good overall condition, the greens rolled well, were soft/receptive, fairways green and lush, bunkers, tees, everything was nice. A pleasure to play.» Close
