What's in Tootall's Golf Bag
Last Updated: March 6, 2021
Love golf! Have played off and on over the past thirty five years, but have had injury set backs to both my back and shoulders which has caused prolonged periods of "No play time." But back at the game again, having to adjust how I play, not the same swing now but slowly improving. Found the Callaway XHot Driver and 3wood and my driving has improved tremendously. But now I have to get my short game back and my mid range irons leave something to be desired LOL.
But, love the game and enjoy getting out whenever possible. Give me an email and if I am available, I will do everything I can to get out on the course. Take care and happy fairways...

Played River Birch Tuesday, 4/19/21, tee time of 10:55am. Temperature ranged from start of 55-64 at end of round. Wind was the major factor that day, windy at 10-12 miles per hour with gusts up to 23 miles per hour. The staff gave excellent efficient service and we teed off a couple minutes early. Walking the course was great just windy.
Course conditions are great, the tee boxes, fairways and greens are in very good condition and the sand traps looked in excellent shape with rakes and were kept raked by players. Played a decent round and though windy totally enjoyed playing the course!

Played River Birch Golf Course today, 3/22/21. Tee time of 10:40, weather was cold, with light rain at times snow melting on contact, temperatures ranged from 35 at tee time up to 43 degrees. Layered up and good to go. Played the blue tees which worked out fine, POP was 3 3/4 hrs, had a good round.
Course conditions have improved making the round even more enjoyable. Greens rolled fairly smoothly with a few bumps, the fairways seem more lush and rolled well even with the rain. There was no puddling anywhere, traps appeared firm, but was never in any.
Cannot wait to play again,

Played Lakeview Golf Club today, 3/19/2021, played a little better the second time. Walked the course with a tee time of 11:25, POP was 3 1/3 with very light rain off and on through 1st 12 holes. There was a foursome teeing off after me, saw them approaching the second tee box, did not see them again.
The course conditions were very similar other then a little wet, had no puddling of water with less roll in the fairways and the greens held better and rolled a little slower, more medium pace. The one down fall was the traps which were fairly hard but had no puddling of water.
Enjoyed the walk and play. Plan on playing again in a couple weeks.

Played 18 at Eagle Hills for the first time! Customer service was friendly professional and got our threesome registered quickly and we teed off at 12:25 ahead of our tee time of 12:30. POP was 3 1/2 walking. Price was good at $38 which I thought was very worthwhile.
In general the tee boxes were hit and miss, sandy with some severe divot damage, the fairways were in good condition with a few divot marks, the rough ranged from 1 to 1 1/2 inches but playable with firm strokes. The sand traps were in very good to excellent shape soft and deep, the best traps yet. The greens were in overall decent condition, bumpy at times with a few thin spots. But the superintendent has done an excellent job getting them back in shape considering they had just put anti fungal on them last spring and the irrigation system went down for four days burning a lot of the grass. They cannibalized the practice green to repair a lot and have worked really hard getting them back in decent to good condition.
The course whines through a housing development and is tree lined throughout with some generous some tight fairways with plenty of sand traps and water on multiple holes! Truly enjoyed the round and plan on playing again! It is my next favorite course after River Birch!

Played Lakeview Golf Club this afternoon, 3/13/21, very enjoyable round though I just played ok. Weekend round of $39 is very reasonable I walked today, carts are $15 to ride. The bar and grill offer good food and drink. Our tee time was 12:20, teed off a little early, round took 4 hours and only waited at a couple holes.
The course whines through homes which can come into play. There are trees along the majority of fairways and some fairways are tight. There is water in play on multiple holes both front and back nines. The tee boxes were mixed, some very sandy under minor repair and some had a fair amount of divot damage. Many doglegs throughout both nines adding challenges and thoughtful play! The rough was short maybe 1” to 1 1/2 inches, the fairways are much easier to hit from due to the many trees. The greens were soft to firm but would hold a good shot. The greens are fast to medium fast with lots of slopes, best to put up. The greens mainly slope from back to front.
Overall impression of Lakeview is it is an enjoyable and challenging course. Looking for the tee boxes to improve was the only drawback of the course. I stayed away from the sand traps but the players with me found the sand fairly soft and not shallow!
Will play Lakeview again.
