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.

I know that when I play Eagle Crest that conditions will be less than ideal. However, I really enjoy the "bones" of this course and the staff is fantastic about getting us out early, so I tolerate the conditions. Generally the greens are good here, but they have not yet healed from the recent aeration, so they were slow and bumpy. I can say that as bad as the fairways were, they are better than the last time I played. Much more coverage and less bare areas. The greenside bunkers had plenty of sand, but it was not raked and in most cases, totally soaked.
The tee boxes were in desperate need of mowing. It was like teeing your ball in the rough. Despite the conditions, I enjoyed the round and nice to get out and around quickly, although we did have a lot of maintenance to contend with this morning.» Close

Nice to return to Montebello. I've always enjoyed playing here. While not the most interesting course, it provides a decent test and some nice holes. Because I am not too bright and still play the back tees, a number of the par 4 holes are now just too log for me to reach in regulation. Someday, I will smarten up and move up.. Not a lot to add to the most recent reviews. Agree that the greens are the best part of the course now. I also totally agree that switching nines is not a good decision.
While I found the "old" #9 a lot of fun to play, it is not a good finishing hole.» Close

Our super early on a very mild morning. Not at all busy today ? (Are people going back to work? ) I was very impressed with the greens, considering they were punched not that long ago. They rolled true and had decent speed. Fairways, while spotty had good coverage and were quite green. There was lots of sand in the bunkers, but none were raked yet, but they showed the potential to be really good. Rough was inconsistent.
I can never say enough good things about Sam in the pro shop. He is the best ! One of the reasons I play here frequently. Always enjoy playing here. The only annoying thing is the back nine play, which I seem to encounter almost every time.» Close

Out early as usual on an overcast mild morning. Not too busy which was nice. Greens are about 80% recovered from the aeration. However they they still have not regained their speed. While it makes chipping & putting much easier, it is an adjustment from what I am used too. Normally the greens are so quick, it makes any putt above the hole or "short side" a real challenge. Now - no problem. (I should enjoy it while it lasts )
Overall the course is in very nice condition, except for a few of the tee boxes. I understand they will be subcontracting an outside company to laser and re-grass the tees on both courses, which would be a welcome improvement.» Close

One of my favorite LA County golf courses. Love the views, the deer, and the mix of holes. The greens to me are the most critical part of this course, because that's the defense of this place. Greens much better than expected, in fact they are better than I can remember them being for some time. ( I sure hated when they were to wet they left foot prints) In fact, overall the course was in better condition than I've seen it for some time. Add to that the price with the senior discount and it's such a bargain.
My only complaint is that I tend to run into back nine play, but not an issue this time. All and all, a great day with beautiful weather» Close
