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.

I must confess I feel very guilty about writing this review, given the circumstances we are all living with. Coto is open, but with severe restrictions. No tee markers, no rakes, no pins, no ball washers, no drinking water, certainly no carts, and strictly enforced social distancing.
Very few players, mostly I believe because it is walking only, coupled with no flag sticks. However after a few times, you pretty much know where the holes will be, and since I always walk, the no carts has no impact for me.
As expected, course is in pristine condition, with such limited play and no cart traffic. The North will be closed effective 4/5/20 for three weeks for scheduled maintenance, but the South will reopen on 4/7/20. (Those greens were punched two weeks ago)
I cherish every round, because I never know if/when they will close down. However being all by myself, and the only items I touch are my own clubs, tees, and ball. Can not imagine anything safer than playing golf under this conditions. Heck of a lot safer than going to Ralphs, Lowes, Costco, getting gas or even take out food. Plus the mental benefit and physical benefit are immeasurable.» Close

Took a chance that Marshall Canyon would be open, and they are in fact open, at least for today. As expected, not very crowded. Playing golf now is strange, because you kind of think this might be the last round for who knows how long ?
As per the last review, greens very good, faster than they looked. Held shots well (Thanks to the rains I suspect) The rough is absolutely brutal in spots, so need to keep it in the fairway. Bunkers were a mixed bag, wet, compacted, but at times OK.
I enjoy playing here, but today I just could not get "my head in the game" very distracted.» Close

With all the recent rains, I checked with Oceanside and they said the course was fine. More water in the adjacent areas than even just week ago, but the fairways had no casual water at all. A number of the bunkers were still flooded however. I had about half the greens mowed. Those that were cut rolled fine and reasonably quick, the uncut greens, not so much. Because they have not been able to mow a great deal, there were a number of areas in the rough which were really thick/juicy. (Found a number of balls in there) They were cutting the fairways as we played, so things should be much better shortly. Very Green !
The staff here is as friendly as can be. Super accommodating. I was advised that the restaurant can not be opened right now because it also has a bar, and bars are currently prohibited from opening because of the Corona virus.
As expected, not very crowded. A few groups, but that's all I saw.» Close

When I went to bed last evening, didn't expect to play Sunday, but woke up to no rain, so trying to find some "normal" back in my life, out first as usual. Again, nobody around ?
Course has really improved because of the recent rains. Green, lush, receptive greens, nice fairways. A pleasure to play. They will be closing the South course starting 3/23 for two weeks for maintenance, so was happy to get a chance to play before that happens. With the forecast next week looking questionable, got to play when you can !» Close

First out on Saturday at about 6:30am. Nobody playing, perhaps because of the threat of rain, perhaps due to everything that's going on in the world right now ? The recent rains have really made everything green and much of the "winter condition" are turning to normal. Much more grass on the fairways and the greens have become more receptive and the speed is now manageable.
Lovely conditions to play. Quiet morning, just the geese, coots, and maintenance, and me» Close
