What's in tom weber's Golf Bag
Last Updated: January 2, 2021
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 on October 3, 2020 at age 72, I was able to accomplish my goal of shooting my age. Shot 71 at Coto de Caza - south course from the blue tees.

First out on a mild morning. Not as crowded as I expected but having both courses open finally sure makes it seem a lot less hectic. Overall, the course is in decent condition, but there are still a number of bare areas on the course which need to be addressed. Greens rolled well and have returned most of their pace again. I think the course plays so much better with quicker greens. While the greenside bunkers are still very good, they are beginning to get somewhat compacted. There is plenty of sand. I think the sand needs to be "mixed up" to regain some degree of "fluffiness"
Hoping the expected rains this weekend will improve conditions.» Close

Thankfully it was cloudy, otherwise I suspect it would have been really cold. So 47 degrees was not all that bad, considering tomorrow it is forecasted to be in the 30's. First off, so no issue with pace of play. Rocky, in the pro shop is wonderful to deal with and makes check in a pleasure.
Sadly, the course is in even worse condition than when I played here in August. While the fairways are always questionable, and most of the bunkers are now designated as either GUR or closed, the greens, which have always been the "saving grace" of this course, have taken a turn for the worse. It's not just because they have not healed from the recent aeration, there are now many bare areas, and several of the greens appear too far gone to be saved.
I think the bones of this course are wonderful, but conditioning, which has always been an issue, has become a concern. I fear that this course may not survive all that much longer. I hope not, because despite the conditioning, I enjoy playing here. Fingers crossed that they can turn this course around.» Close

Looking to stay reasonably close to home, RSJ fit nicely. Not a whole lot to add to Dave's recent review. I echo what he said about the greens. I have played here a number of times, and the ball did seem to run out more than usual, although they were not all that fast. Overall, the course was in OK condition. Better than the last time I played, so that's a positive. Fairways also had better coverage.
I enjoy playing here occasionally, but don't think I could make a steady diet of this course. If you have not played here recently, I think you would be impressed with the improvement from a couple years ago.» Close

First out on a very cold morning. I checked the internet for weather before I left and it was supposed to be 51 degrees, but when I teed off just prior to 6am, there was frost everywhere. Carts on carts on path until 8 o'clock. (I walked so no impact for me) Sam, in the pro shop said it much colder yesterday.
Greens rolled well and had decent speed. Fairways were frozen. Many more bare areas rhan when I last played here in September. Bunkers were well maintained, which was good, because I found a bunch of them.
Always enjoy playing this course, but this morning was a bit too cold for these old bones. Never did get loose. Otherwise a beautiful clear morning, on a fun golf course.» Close

An absolutely beautiful day tp play golf. A little cool in the morning but warmed up quickly. Not a lot to add to Larry's most recent review which was spot on. Greens held nothing, or maybe it's just me? Generally decent lies in the fairways. No bunkers for me today, but they appeared OK.
I like this course, but it has gotten a bit pricey, so I play here far less than I used to. Love the views. Enjoy the layout and the mix of holes. Staff is always great. Just wish it were closer and cheaper» Close
