What's in tom weber's Golf Bag
Last Updated: September 18, 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.

Like many of the L A County courses, you better get out early otherwise it will be a long day. Always crowded at Lakewood, but if you're lucky enough to secure an early time, pace is tolerable, even with the fivesomes being sent out.
David's most recent review covers conditions very well. It's not that the course is in bad condition, or even good condition, it seems it all depends where your ball ends up. Some lies are fine, others thin. Some bunkers have sand, others don't. Parts of the rough is thick/juicy, next time, thin and sparse. Tee boxes were same way, some good, some needing attention.
Years ago I always played Lakewood from the "tips", but times have changed as those tees are no longer feasible. Even the blue tees provide several holes which now are beyond my abilities. The par 3 holes and a few of the par 4 holes really expose your shortcomings when distance deserts you.
But using the senior discount cards makes this a bargain to play and despite some conditioning issues, still an enjoyable course to play. (Providing you get out early)» Close

Early round with a friend who lives in the Temecula area. Would have preferred Cross Creek, but we don't always get what we desire. As it turned out, worked out fine as the staff was friendly and accommodating and we were able to get around in well under four hours.
Course conditions are a mixed bag. Some of the greens were firm, some soft, same with pace, but because there are so many tiers on these greens, I'm sure that made it seem inconsistent. The rough however is inconsistent, from thin/bare to thick, depending upon where the ball ends up. Bunkers were OK, enough sand, well raked.
Because I tend to flight the ball lower than most, this course plays tough for me, with so many elevated greens. Some interesting holes. I really enjoy the finishing hole, providing a great opportunity for a birdie, but it makes you hit the shots.» Close

Early morning "economy golf". Great senior rates and the staff is always accommodating and works with you to get you out. Beautiful cool morning, which warmed up nicely. Last review by Chevelle is spot on, with the tee boxes being the major issue. (However, since I walk back to the tips, conditions much better from those areas of the tee) Greens rolled well, could be a little quicker for my taste. Fairways had some bare spots, but for the for the most part acceptable.
Not my favorite course, but it's inexpensive basic golf, which sometimes is all I'm looking for.» Close

6:45am tee time, but we were advised that the ladies had a reverse shotgun starting at 8 o'clock beginning on #14, so we had to adjust our pace to insure we did not get caught up in their shotgun. Played slow enough to make it so we did not catch them until the last hole. Good timing ! Pace of play just under three hours. The staff was fantastic, allowing us the option of backing the back nine first, or even starting on #14. Very accommodating.
The greens were very good. Although we had several which were not mowed, they rolled well, but a bit too slow for my preference. Fairways are very thin in many areas. Rough was a mixed bag. Greenside bunkers had plenty of well raked sand.
I was advised they will be punching greens the first week of November.» Close

Morning round with some friends (But not super early so I could actually see my first tee shot) Taking advantage of the senior special, which is one of the few positives of being old. Played the Coyote tees which allowed for some shorter irons into the greens and was fun.
Course is in good, not great condition. The greens rolled well, fairly quick and true, receptive to well struck irons. Most of the fairways were fine, with a mix of wet areas and dry spots? Both bunkers I found were good, with plenty of well raked sand.
Always enjoy playing Coyote Hills. Love the visuals, interesting mix of holes, with no parallel fairways, so every hole feels isolated. Staff is always friendly and seem genuinely appreciative for your business. Other than some wind, a near perfect way to spend time with friends» Close
