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.

Back out to Oceanside with a first off tee time. One of the reasons I play here as frequently as I do is because of Sam in the pro shop. He is just the best. Even called me at home to advise me that they no longer required temperature check prior to play.
Not a lot has changed since I played here a couple weeks ago. Greens roll well, reasonably quick. Most fairways are fairly lush, but with some bare areas and thin spots. Rough is inconsistent, and beyond the rough is "gone". The bunkers were well maintained, but some over watered and soaked.
I find this to be an enjoyable track to play. The holes are not redundant, and provide enough of a challenge to keep your interest without being overly penal. Not a big fan of holes #15 & #16, which are just long, without much character. Otherwise the majority of the holes are a nice mix, and none run parallel to one another.» Close

Not a lot to add to walnutgolf's review. Course is in very nice shape, greens rolled well and were reasonably receptive. Fairways had plenty of coverage and did not get a poor lie all day. I have to agree with the comments on #6, which I find to be one of the more difficult par 4 holes I've ever played. They need to allow the grass to grow so the ball stays up.
Staff is always wonderful and the fees for seniors are excellent. Always enjoy my rounds here. Just a fun course to play.» Close

First out this morning at Eagle Crest. Abig thank you to Taro in the pro shop. It is so nice to have somebody who is up beat and positive to deal with in the morning. Too many people in the pro shops are grumpy and not particularly friendly. Taro was great, actually able to get out early.
The course, as much as I really like it, I have to admit is not in very good condition. Greens are far and away the best part of the course. Rolled fairly well, receptive, and medium quick. Fairways are a mixed bag, some good, others not so much. Rough is spotty at best. The tee boxes are beat up and really need to be regraded. Like most courses now, the bunkers are awful. Thin, compacted, lots of weeds growing, flooded at times, etc. Not good!
Disappointed to see they have closed the tee on #14, which was a fun driving hole, and made it a rather bland short par 4. (Don't know the reason - forgot to inquire )
In spite of a gloomy foggy morning, enjoyed the 2 1/2 hour pace on a fun course. If only this course were in better condition, it could be one of my favorites. I was advised that they hired a new super, so maybe there is hope.» Close

With the North course remaining closed, I've been playing the South course about five times a week. Looking forward to the North reopening in early June. Given that most everyone takes a cart ( I am one of the few walkers) and that means four carts per tee time, the course has held up really well under all that traffic. Greens roll well, rough is decent, and the bunkers, although somewhat compacted, are still good. Far and away the worst part of the course is the tee boxes. They need serious attention. I understand once the North opens next month, they will be closing the South for quite a while to redo all the green surrounds, at a cost of another $1,000,000.00 Rumor is they may rebuild all 18 greens as well. Hope not because will close the course for a long long time.» Close

One of my favorite courses to play, part of the reason is dealing with Mark, in the pro shop who is just wonderful. Always nice to have a stress free beginning to the day and Mark provides just that. First off, so no pace of play issues.
Course is in nice shape, greens rolled well, but were a bit too slow for my taste. Fairways provided plenty of coverage. Rough & tee boxes OK. The bunkers were the worst part of the course, and had nothing to do with no rakes. Kind of a hard pan type clay.
They have placed a wire fence along side hole #12 on the left side, which gives this already rather tight hole and much more challenging tee shot. No idea why this was done? Otherwise had a great quick morning round under beautiful weather. Too bad my game was not up to the same standard.» Close
