What's in tom weber's Golf Bag
Last Updated: October 25, 2017
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 after almost a week, the South course was reopened. (Cart path only) I always walk so does not impact me, but unlike the North course, fairways were very wet ! No casual or standing water, but still really wet.
The greens probably rolled as well as I have ever seen them since the course opened in 1995 (A week of no play will do that ) Bunkers, like the North are near perfect. Rebuilding all the bunkers last year turned what was always the worst feature of this course into one of the best features
Course was not very busy, I guess carts on path causes a lot of people to stay away. Looking forward to some nice sunny warm weather to dry things out so that I can get some roll again in the fairways» Close

I had been playing the North course all week, despite the rain because the South course has been closed (Cross-overs flooded) The course drains exceptionally well. Even with over inches of rain, not standing or even casual water, bunkers which were all redone two years ago showed zero sign of water)
Greens rolled well, but not very fast, in part because the mowers could not get out to cut them. Fairways for the most part are good, but the rough is terrible. Too many areas of thin/patchy grasses.
As expected the course played very long, with little or no roll out on the drives, but was just happy to be playing» Close

Expecting rain, did not want to travel too far or spend a ton of $$, because I wasn't certain I'd get the entire round in. As expected, not very busy, so not a problem getting out. Course was actually in better condition than I thought it would be. Greens rolled well, fairways lush and wet ! Bunkers decent considering the recent rains.
The biggest disappointment was not finding Dennis in the pro shop. There was always a comfort level whenever I visited here. Always enjoyed talking with him prior to my round. He will be missed.» Close

Always enjoy playing the Crossings ! The staff was very friendly and accommodating, allowing our twosome to get out before our scheduled tee time, right behind a single. As expected great pace of play UNTIL we reached #17, when we ran into an eightsome on the tee, but they allowed us to play through, then only to find another eightsome on #18. ??? We waited for one of the groups to finish, then played through the second foursome.
The course was in really nice overall condition, greens, fairways, bunkers, only the rough was a bit inconsistent. Greens slower than they appeared, but truly some of the better conditions I've seen at a course for a while. Kudus to the superintendent.
Really makes you appreciate living in Southern California when you can play in your shirtsleeves on a January morning. What a morning - no fog, no wind, no rain, sunny, just validates my decision to move here 50 years ago !» Close

Oceanside is becoming a "go to" course because I never have any problem getting out early with last minute notice. I recognize this may not be everyone's favorite golf course, but it is a lot of fun to play ! Except for holes #15 & #16, all the holes are very reachable for this senior, even from the blue tees, plus they provide interest. 15 & 16 are just long straight holes, for us shorter hitters, making them somewhat uninteresting.
Greens rolled very nicely, faster than they appeared. The greenside bunkers were excellent, ugly sand, but lots of it and well maintained. Fairways are good, not great. The areas which they have removed sod for water conservation, give the course a rather unpleasant look, but those areas are not really inplay anyway. (Or shouldn't be)
Staff is always accommodating. If this course were closer, I'd play here a lot more frequently.» Close
