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.

I always enjoy playing this course. I find the "mix" of holes so very much fun and interesting. There are several holes which I look forward too even before starting the round. While I like the entire course, I find the back nine particularly interesting. Hole after hole is so different from one another.
Condition of the course was better than expected, given the recent heat wave, the course has held up very nicely. Greens rolled well and were fairly quick. Fairways had plenty of grass. Most of the bunkers I looked at appeared well maintained and had decent amount of sand.
Staff is always friendly and accommodating. While a bit pricey, because I like this place so much, I tend to over look the cost.» Close

As I had not played here in over ten years, was excited to return, plus anxious to see/play the new holes. Booked what I thought was the first time off at 6:32am, but upon arrival learned the "men's club" had the first three tee times? So while waiting on the tee for 6:30 to come, because we were told we could not tee off before then. At 6:15 an Asian couple just rode up and teed off without saying anything????
So we just followed them and to my delight, they played very quickly, so while we enjoyed a very easy pace of two hours forty minutes and never really had to wait. (Never saw the men's club behind us!)
The greens were the best part of the course by far. Very disappointed in the fairways and rough on the front nine. Fairways were thin at beat, and the rough was "clumpy" However on the "new holes" (14-16) fairways were excellent and the greens were very better.
Enjoyed my round, but have to admit I am not a fan of the new holes, as they lack the character of the original holes. Happy I played the course before the anticipated bump in green fees once the casino is completed.» Close

I always enjoy playing this golf course because there are many holes which I just love playing. Add the wonderful vistas, and the mix/variety of holes, makes for a fun time. (Plus there are a bunch of birdie holes out there)
Course has withstood the heat very well. Most of the fairways still green and lush, greens rolled well. Overall the condition of the course was better than I expected.
Staff as always was great, very accommodating. My only complaint I have is sometimes getting slowed by "back nine play", but no problems today !» Close

I hadn't played Green River for a while, so after confirming that all 18 holes were open, was able to secure the first time off. Not too busy, so no issue getting out early. Walked the 18 in about 2 1/2 hours, which is fairly quick given the distance from #12 to #13 and the long walk in from #18.
The best part of the course was the greens, BUT - they had just fertilized apparently so there was a light "sandy material" on every green. So playing early, with the ball being wet, when you got to the ball there was a ring of sand, almost like a range ball would have. Same thing after every putt, so you had to wipe off the ball very well to get all the fertilizer off before putting. The greenside bunkers were all well maintained, but very very thin, with little sand.
Fairways were a mix of bare, thin, and decent. The rough was a mix of thin, bare and US Open thick type rough, depending upon where the ball finished.
I used to really enjoy the two Green River courses, but I am not a big fan of this place since they consolidated the two courses. However for $23 to play, it's worth playing.» Close

With sunrise getting later and later, unable to stay ahead of maintenance, so ended up with the mowers on almost every green, which tends to be a bit of a distraction. (At least that's the excuse I'm using for this mornings poor play.
Course is in nice condition right now, greens rolling well, but not as quick as usual? Fairways green and lush, bunkers are perfect, rough, still has some areas which need attention.
Over the past several weeks, there has been a lot of "singles" in carts which seem to come out to play some holes before work I guess, because it seems every time I turn around there seems to be another player zipping around, which adds to the distraction. Funny when you play poorly you can find a million reasons to justify your crappy performance.» Close
