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.

One of my favorite courses near the 15/91 corridor. I think that the scenery is as much a part of it as the golf course itself, plus the staff is always accommodating and the senior rate is much appreciated.
Hard to add much to the most recent reviews by David & Andrew. Very thorough, almost like a short novel. Because I played so early, the greens still retained a lot of moisture and were not all that fast, even the few down hill putts, but still quick enough to warrant one's attention. Agree that some of the fairways could use some attention. In two bunkers and both were just fine.
Fun golf course with enough of a challenge to retain your interest, but still a course where you can put up a decent number.» Close

It is my understanding that Willowick is closing in the near future ( At least a portion of the course anyway) so I was anxious to get back out and play there one last time. Secured a 6am tee time and based upon past experience, expected it tobe busy, but it was empty? I mean nobody!
Based upon the last few reviews, I did not expect conditions to be very good, but they were far better than anticipated. In fact the greens were fairly good, the best part of the course. Fairways were just so-so, with areas of dirt, but for the most part very playable. One bunker I found was very good, well maintained with plenty of sand. A few of the tee boxes had some issues.
I have never played here where the back side wasn't crowded, but today, in beautiful weather ...... nobody there? Even when we finished there was no one teeing off on #1 and nobody coming up #9. Out threesome took it's time and finished right on three hours, because there was nobody within several holes behind us, so we just strolled along.
Enjoyed the round. Will be sorry to see this place go away. There is a definite need for golf courses like Willowick. Inexpensive, easy to walk, playable for everyone, little risk of losing balls, etc.» Close

I had actually intended to play Mesa Linda, but as it wasn't as busy as expected, able to get out on the "big course". Conditions were about as expected, the greens however were better than expected based upon the last review. Fairways were green and had plenty of grass with only a few areas which needed some attention. The one bunker I found was well raked and had plenty of sand.
I always find these courses a little pricey for what you get, but given it's Orange County, I should be thrilled at the cost. While not my favorite course, it's nice for a change and for me not all that far to drive.» Close

I was able to secure the first time out, which was good because they were very crowded. I appreciate the starter working with me to get out early. The only downside is that I had a lot of maintenance to contend with. ( I am very careful to not create a problem with maintenance because I want to insure that the next time I play there are no issues)
The course was in reasonably decent condition. However because they are "working" on the course, so they had carts on path on 6 holes, ( plus par 3's of course) so it was just as easy to walk rather than take the cart.
Greens were nice, still a little slow however. Both bunkers I was in were great. Most of the rough was good, but there were some areas which needed attention.
I like Tustin Ranch, but the fees are crazy expensive. Yet, they were busy, so I guess there must be a lot of rich people playing golf these days?» Close

Bunker project is almost complete. Only two holes remain to be finish the task. The pure white sand contrasts so nicely with the now green of the fairways. Just looks great. They removed almost 20% of the total sand from the course, but it does not affect the appearance or playability of the course.
Greens quick and true. Fairways lush and green. Bunkers, which were always the worst part of the course are now perfect. Now if only my golf game would improve so I can appreciate the course» Close
