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.

Back out to Oceanside for an early morning round with a friend visiting from Arizona. Course has not changed much since I last played here about three weeks ago. I thought the greens rolled very well and were perhaps a bit quicker than my previous round. The fairways were generally good with plenty of grass. The rough was rather inconsistent with some spots very thick while other rather sparse. Both bunkers I found were well groomed with plenty of sand.
I know there are some which do not particularly care for this course, but I find this course a pleasure to play. Lots of fun holes, some rather unusual ( #12 for example) nice mix of long par 4 holes, as well as easy holes. Also enjoy the varied lengths of the four par 3 holes.
To my surprise and delight, the last couple times I've played here, it has not been too crowded, so easy to get out early and enjoy a nice pace of play.» Close

I always enjoy playing this course. I think there are several holes that are a pure pleasure to play. The course seems to provide a nice "flow" The staff is always wonderful and very accommodating. Using an Under par groupon, it was a great bargain as well.
However I must admit I was disappointed with the overall condition of the course. All the fairways were extremely thin as were many areas of the rough. The sand in the greenside bunkers was very compacted. While the greens were very nice and rolled well, since we only had ONE cut green, as a result they were SLOW ! Like 6 or 7 on the stimp. (Still lots of morning dew, so at least by the back nine they were picking up a little pace.
I highly recommend this course, condition not withstanding. Some fun holes providing enough of a challenge to keep your interest, but nothing so hard as to beat you up.» Close

Last day of my mini trip up north, so decided to finish it on one of my favorite places to play. There is just something about this course which makes me love playing here. While offering a challenge, it allows you to put up a decent score without always having your "A" game. It's interesting, easy to walk, not expensive to play, great staff, almost always in good condition. My only complaint is that it's too far from where I live !
Not a great deal to add to the prior review, course is in nice shape, thought the greens rolled really well. A few spots in the fairways, but nothing too severe. Also nice that the weather is so moderate here compared to some other areas. (Even in the winter )» Close

One of my very favorite golf courses ! In part, dealing with Stacey in the pro shop is a total pleasure, she represents the type of person I would want to work for me if I ran a golf course.
First off a little prior to 7am. Unlike yesterdays 90+ degree temperatures, it was 57 degress when we teed off. How perfect ! Pace of play was fantastic, we rode in just under two hours twenty minutes, without rushing.
A few of the greens (#2 & #3 ) had a few issues, but otherwise the greens were fine. A few areas in the fairways as well, but nothing too critical. The only complaint I had is they removed the fairway bunkers on the left side of the 15th fairway, which makes the hole play a whole lot easier off the tee. I suspect it was done to speed up play?
Always enjoy myself at this course, even when I do not play well, but fortunately I did play well this morning, which made it all the better» Close

Had not played here in quite a while (Over 5 years) so was excited to return. I've never played well at this course, and sad to admit, today was no different. Without local knowledge, it was a real struggle for our entire foursome.
Great pace of play - teed off at 8:30am and never waited once. In all fairness, our group played collectively so poorly, I'm not surprised we never caught the twosome in front of us, but then again, we were never caught by the riding twosome behind us. ( We are all walkers & seniors)
I was disappointed in the areas surrounding the greens which had been recently punched. Because of the "furrows" it created, made it nearly impossible to putt from off the greens, which is the most unique feature of this course Greens were just OK, but much too slow for my taste. I know this course is highly regarded by almost everyone, but while it certainly is a wonderful track, for me to make the 110+ mile drive, there are other courses I would choose to play. (La Purisima tomorrow being one of them)» Close
