What's in tom weber's Golf Bag
Last Updated: April 24, 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.

This is a very sad review, because it will be the last time I will play Diamond Valley. Effective June 3, 2019 they will be closing down. I inquired as to the reason and was told they do not receive enough weekday play to justify keeping the course open. Loosing any golf course is sad, but I really enjoy this course and will very much miss making the 80+ mile drive to play here.
The condition of the course was much better than I anticipated, as I expected they would have done little in the way of maintenance knowing they were closing, but to my surprise and delight, the course was in decent shape. Greens were very nice, albeit a little slow. Fairways and tee boxes also OK.. The bunkers were awful ! Compacted sand with no recent maintenance showing. Many areas of the rough were equally poor, but if you kept your ball in the fairway and out of the sand, it was a delight to play.
$19.99 with cart to play. That is a bargain. Staff was very accommodating, as were were able to tee off first, about 20 minutes prior to our scheduled tee time. Thank you Diamond Valley for 20 years of enjoyable golf !» Close

I have to admit this is not the most exciting golf course you'll ever play, but the price is right, conditions right now are very good, in fact as good as I can remember for this place, and the staff is always friendly and accommodating.
There is a certain comfort about playing old style traditional golf courses. Certainly nothing fancy, just plain straight forward golf. With greens being the best part of the course and fairways in pretty good shape as well, hard to complain. Just don't set your expectations too high when playing here. I only found one bunker and it was OK, thin, but OK.
Plus it's nice to finish a round of golf quickly and feel that you received value for the $$ paid.» Close

I checked and it had been 10 years since I last played here. I had a 6:00am tee time, which was the fourth group off, so I had some concerns about pace of play, but as it turned out, my fears were not warranted. Out walking threesome played without any waiting in just a touch over three hours. (Nobody behind us so we just maintained a nice easy pace) Check in was efficient and the starter made certain everything went off as scheduled.
Course was in much better condition than expected, in fact the greens were some of the best I've played. Fairways also very good, bunkers had lots of sand and were for the most part well maintained. Rough was just OK.
I enjoyed the course more than I remembered. (Maybe it's because I'm old now and the holes present a greater challenge than they did back when.) Yeah there are a few short par four holes, but there are also some legit par 4 holes as well. $21 was a great price, so I am certain it will not be 10 tens until I return. A very pleasant enjoyable round of golf, which is about all I need nowdays» Close

I generally don't play "away" on Fridays, but with Coto being closed Thurs/Fri & Sat for a member guest, decided on Oceanside as they only charge $1.00 more for Fridays and I was told it would not be too crowded.
No problem getting out first and walked in under 2 1/2 hours at a nice easy pace. Course is in some of the best condition I have seen it in. Greens were very nice, fairways good, lots of sand in the bunkers, although some were not raked. (Yesterdays play?) Tee boxes for the most part are fine.
I very much enjoy playing this course. I find it fun, interesting, enough of a challenge to keep my interest. It may not be the most visually appealing golf course, but it offers good value and solid traditional style golf.» Close

Funny when I think about playing golf, this course rarely comes to mind? It's not far from where I live, reasonably priced, and I can generally get out without issue. So when I read the recent review, I thought I'd go for it. After playing I remembered why I don't play here all that often.
Conditions clearly are not all that great, but it is playable. Greens usually are better than they were today. Slow and bumpy. Fairways had some bare spots and some "rough spots". Both bunkers I found were OK.
My biggest complaint is all the back nine play, which is something I think about from the moment I tee off on #1. Wasn't too bad this time, but I have been burned in the past. Truth is this course could be good, if someone would put some $$ into it.» Close
