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.

Finally able to get back out on the North Course! After being closed for almost three months and spending one million dollars for improvements, was it worth it ? Let's just say that I hope they don't do this on the South Course.
As expected, conditions are pretty good. Greens were much slower than normal, but since I did not have any cut greens, not fair to be too critical. The "surrounds" around the greens which were the focus of the renovation have really not fully grown in, so I was not thrilled with their playability. Maybe time will fix that? Otherwise the fairways was full & lush, tee boxes still need some attention of a couple holes, but mostly very good. Bunkers could be great, but since I get out before maintenance and none are raked, it all depends where your ball ends up.
Nice to have two courses again, for however long that lasts.» Close

A very rare mid afternoon round for me, as I almost always play first thing in the morning. Not used to playing in the heat, and definitely not used to playing in 4 1/2 + hours. On the plus side, it was a plus to get some roll out which is not typical in the early morning wet fairways, plus the ball does travel further in the hot weather, that said, I think I'll stick with the early AM golf.
Course conditions are pretty much what weber2323 covered in his review. Greens rolled well, quicker than expected, but still receptive. This place is always in great shape, which is probably why they can command the price. I remember when the Goose was the least expensive in this area, but I guess because of the course quality and conditioning, it can be expected. Hard not to love playing here at what ever they charge.» Close

Not a great deal to add to my recent review. Course remains in very good condition, which I find even more impressive when you consider how small their maintenance staff is. Add to that the cost of playing here, which has to be one of the better values in golf.
The more I play here, the more I can recommend it. Great value, well above average conditioning, a fun course to play with a nice diversity of hole types. Staff is one of the friendliest around.
Out early as usual and enjoyed a quick pace of play. Greens rolled well, and were pretty receptive. Most fairways were nice, a little "tight" at times, but never found a poor lie. A few of the bunkers were a bit thin, but OK. Overall better than average. If you have not yet played here, try it, I think you'll be impressed.» Close

5:30am tee time, which was the second group out. No issues with pace of play UNTIL we ran into a very slow threesome which had gone out on the back nine. (The first group played through them, but they did not wave us through?) Fortunately it was only for the last 4 holes, which felt like an eternity)
The course was not in good condition, far worse than when I played here a few months ago, which surprised me because I expected better. The greens were far and away the best part of the course, in fact were the only good part of the course. Fairways were dry and had many "tuffs" of weeds. Rough was so-so. Bunkers were actually not too bad, although not maintained, but did have sand.
The course was deserted when we arrived. I don't think that anyone teed off after us for quite a while. Strange to walk up #2 & #3 and not see any groups playing #1. In all fairness, it was drizzling for the the first 10+ holes
With the overcast and "iffy" weather, some of the luster, which is Los Verdes was absent. No great views of the ocean to enjoy. But for $21, still a fantastic deal.» Close

Back out to Oceanside - first off as usual, so no issues with place of play. We walked in about 2 hours 40 minutes, a nice easy pace, making sure we stayed behind maintenance mowing the greens. Just as Andrewz28 says, the fairways are wonderful, probably the best I have ever seen here. Granted there are some bare areas and some spots of weeds, but overall just a pleasure to play off. Greens rolled great, medium quick. Bunkers were a mixed bag, so good, some soaked, so the sand was like mush. A few tee boxes could use some attention, but you could always find a decent spot. Since I play the blue, they seem to have less wear than the gold or white tees.
Sam in the pro shop is simply the best. Super friendly and very accommodating. I appreciate it when the shop thanks you for coming out and playing.» Close
