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.

Booked a 7:00am tee time Thursday, knowing that there are always a couple singles and one twosome which get off first. However the starter was great because he asked the twosome if we could fill in behind the last single, and the couple were gracious enough to agree. Worked out great as we never waited and never held up the twosome. We played in exactly 2 1/2 hours which was a nice easy pace.
Greens were good, but too slow for my taste. Fairways had plenty of grass and were mostly green. Rough has some issues, but nothing serious. Only in one bunker, but it was fine.
Always enjoy playing here, some fun holes, and a few that really are all I can handle and more ( #6, # 12 & #13 ) Try to make par of them, but even walking off with bogey does not ruin the round. There are enough birdie holes to compensate, so I've learned to accept bogeys on those holes.» Close

Always a positive experience playing here because the staff is always awesome. Very friendly and accommodating. The only downside is this course is getting a bit pricey.
Conditions were good overall, greens rolled better than I'd seen in some time. The recent rains didn't hurt the fairways, as they were reasonably green/lush. Only in one bunker and it was very nice.
I don't know if it's because I'm getting older or there is just more grass on the fairways, but this course used to play a lot shorter. Just don't get the "run-out" like before.» Close

Since I had not played here in a few years, wanted to take advantage of the LA County senior card, so booked a tee time for 6:30am Tuesday 1/16/18. I arrived just before 6am and it was pitch black and there were already people teeing off ! By the time we teed off at 6:41. (11 minutes behind already) we were the 10th or 11th group out. Since dark ! As we walked up to the second tee box, there were people teeing off on #9. That's insane ! That meant thy played the entire front nine in total darkness ! Given this craziness, we were able to finish in just under 4 hours, which for a 6:30 tee time is horrible, but considering the entire front nine was filled when we started, not as bad as expected.
The course was in decent shape. Not great, but OK. Greens had not been mowed, so they were slow and bumpy, but I could see they could have been good had they been cut. Fairways/bunkers fairly good. Rough was very spotty.
Despite everything, enjoyed by round and never felt like a four hour round (Good company I guess? ) However I now know I will NEVER try to come out early and try to beat the crowds, because they place is ridiculous.» Close

Hadn't played Lakewood for sometime, so taking advantage of the senior discount, decided to brave the potential rain and booked a 6:44 am tee time. We actually got out in the third group out, so pace was decent at a little over three hours.
Green were the best part of the course. Rolled pretty true and had reasonable speed. Fairways were inconsistent. Same with the rough, all depended upon where the ball came to rest. I was in several bunkers and except that they were unraked, plenty of sand and overall fairly good.
Nice change of pace to play here, and because we teed off early, able to avoid the typical slow play frequently encountered here. Today I was smart and did not play the "tips" and found the course much friendlier and playable. (Maybe I'm getting smarter in my old age?)» Close

Nice to get back out on the South course where the greens are fast, but still playable. (Fair) Fairways looking good despite the absence of water, much drier which provides some needed roll out. They are scheduled to begin a total bunker renovation beginning in February which will mirror the North course. It will be interesting to see how many bunkers they either eliminate of reduce in size. (When they did the North, they reduced the total sand by 40%)
Very pleasant morning with no frost threat. Hard to complain golfing early morning in January in shirtsleeves.» Close
