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.

Was hoping to get out on the #1 course but ended up playing #2. Prior reviews accurately depict the fairways, which were recently aerated. Did not play the ball down, so I was able to circumvent the conditions. Greens were good as were the bunkers, so turned out to be playable conditions. Playing the ball down would have been less than optimum.
Enjoy the #2 course, because many of the holes on #1 are more than I can handle now. Plus the fact the the course does not come in after nine removes the issue of back nine play. Great price for seniors and an easy walk, which was appreciated given the warm temperatures. Staff is always friendly and accommodating.» Close

2nd off on a warm Monday Morning. Lots of sprinklers going on the first several holes, but at least they're watering! It appears that some of the fairways have more grass than the last time I played here, but they have a long way to go. Generally, the greens are good here, but today they were slow and really need to be rolled. Bunkers are a disaster. As is the rough and most of the tee boxes.
Despite the less than optimum conditions I continue to play here because I love the layout and the staff is terrific. Price is right and I am able to get out and play quickly, which with the current heat wave is a real positive. I remember what this course looked like when it first opened and can only wish that someday it will be that way again.» Close

Always great to get back out to the Goat. Having played here numerous times, I know what to expect, which is the most difficult 4500 yard course in the world. I try to moderate my expectations here because I know that there is a thin margin between a shot which provides a good result and big and a real test to save a par.
Greens were good, as were the fairways and most of the tee boxes. Avoided the bunkers, but they appeared OK. Staff as always was friendly and a pleasure to deal with. I had hoped that the temperatures would be much cooler here, but turned out it was still a bit toasty out there.» Close

First out at 6:30am. Temperatures were forecast to be mid 90's so glad to get out early and finish in well under three hours. Staff was accommodating and allowed us to get out a few minutes prior to our tee time.
Without question, the greens were the best I've played on anywhere this year, including a number of private venues. Not super-fast, but very receptive and they rolled as true as any greens I have ever played on. Very impressed! Fairways were generally good but had areas which needed attention. Bunkers were all overwatered and none were raked/maintained. Tee boxes could use some work as well.
I love the Mountain nine but am not a fan of the other nine. Bottom line is we beat the heat, enjoyed wonderful greens, and had a nice Monday morning of golf.» Close

First out as usual to beat the heat forecast for today. Not too busy for a Friday. Since they will be shutting down the South for two weeks for aeration, it was my last opportunity to play here for a while. Fairways have been awful, so I won't really miss playing here as much as normal, plus the homeowners on holes #2 & #3 have complained about noise, so maintenance can not begin mowing until after 7am. Because of this, I catch the mowers not only on these two holes, but all the way through the course now because their delayed. If you buy a house on the course, you should expect some degree of noise, otherwise don't buy on the course!
Greens are very good and super receptive. Most of the fairway is acceptable, but too many bare areas. Bunkers, tee boxes, rough are all in good shape. I am seeing some signs of improvement in the fairways, but at this moment in time, still not what you would expect or what I have known to experience in my 32 years here. Overseeding in September will close the course again for three weeks, but perhaps that might resolve the issue.» Close
