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.

Hadn't been to Mile Square for a while, so looked forward to returning. While not the most exciting golf course, it provides good solid affordable golf with adequate challenge, but not to the point where it will expose all your weaknesses.
Condition was actually better than I expected. Most of the course seem to have very thin fairways and super firm greens, but there was a decent amount of grass on the fairways, and the greens held shots fairly well. ( Or maybe I just hit a few good shots? ) The bunkers I found had nice sand, well raked.
My biggest regret was that I never looked at the map of the proposed new single course layout. I thought about it when I was about half way home. Guess that will force me to return just to satisfy my nature» Close

One of the reasons I enjoy playing here is the staff is always super friendly and accommodating. They actually make you feel welcome and convey an appreciation that you are patronizing their course.
Conditions are pretty much what Gary00 indicated. Winter/dormant fairways, many tight lies. Greens rolled OK, could be vary quick if you found yourself above the cup. Only in one bunker and it had enough well manicured sand. Most of the tee boxes were fine, a few needing attention.
While not a really difficult course, I just do not seem to be able to put up any kind of decent score here? Despite my inability to play well, enjoyed the round and the weather. Maybe next time I'll figure this place out ?» Close

Using a Greenskeeper certificate ( Thanks Johnny ! ) What a great deal. Check in was fast, efficient and very friendly. I wish all staff at the pro shops I encounter were as pleasant and accommodating as they were this morning at Sterling Hills.
First off, so no issues with pace of play. Winter conditions, so fairways at times tended to be thin. Greens were the best part of the course, although saw quite a few unrepaired ball marks. I didn't remember the greens as having so much slope, and coupled with some tough pin positions and firm, and at times fast greens, made for some difficult scoring. In general the course was in good condition.
Enjoyed the course, despite leaving any kind of game back in Orange County. A long drive, but with such a fantastic GK coupon, the warm/friendly staff, and the just a fun track, it was worth thr effort. Recommend playing here.» Close

As always, out pre-dawn on a super cold morning. (38 degrees ) To my surprise and delight, they did not issue a frost delay, despite the fact there was a lot of frost ? Fairways are dormant, so I was advised that walkers do not really damage the grass and as long as the greens are not frozen, we're good to go.
Due to the conditions, extra roll out on the drives, but the downside was that the greens were so firm and fast, very tough to get ANY shot to stop. I would guess some of the green speeds were in excess of 12+. Bunkers still in great shape, but many are getting too firm and need to be addressed. Rough and many of the green surrounds also need attention, but I'm hoping once the weather warms up, those too will be addressed ?» Close

Looking for a change of pace and not wanting to travel too far, out early on a colder than expected morning. It's nice to play these shorter courses, particularly when you're struggling with your game. You still have to hit the shots, otherwise even these little courses will humiliate you.
Conditions were decent. Most of the greens were smooth and had reasonable speed. Fairways were a mix of nice and not so nice. Nothing really too bad about the course, except maybe the tee boxes which were kind of beat up, but could always find a spot. Truth is, it was a fun quick inexpensive three hours of no stress golf - just what I was looking for.» Close
