The Bee posse's weekly update of the latest in area conditions, bargains, etc.
Course What you need to know
Castle Oaks Tees lush/green, fairways could be cut lower, rough playable, greens solid but on slow side, bunkers more like waste areas and are an acquired taste
Haggin Oaks Arcade front nine being aerified today after six greens vandalized last week
Lockeford Springs Course, never forthcoming with aerification information, has decided to skip the process this summer and let its players and good greens roll
Mather Fairways have crossed the line from brown/thin/playable to dead/dormant/more dirt than grass and largely unplayable in far too many spots to ignore
Rolling Greens Serves a wide segment of players in idyllic setting with better-than-adequate conditions; complete your round with a beverage on recently renovated patio
Teal Bend Good shape, receptive greens; pace of play good marshals working all day
Wildhawk Fairways among best in area this summer; greens good but slowish and soft
Aerified last week: Woodcreek, Yocha Dehe
Aerified this week: Bartley Cavanaugh, Catta Verdera, Plumas Lake
Scheduled to aerify next week: Bing Maloney

What You Should Know About Comments on Sacbee.com
Sacbee.com is happy to provide a forum for reader interaction, discussion, feedback and reaction to our stories. However, we reserve the right to delete inappropriate comments or ban users who can't play nice. (See our full terms of service here.)
Here are some rules of the road:
Keep your comments civil. Don't insult one another or the subjects of our articles. If you think a comment violates our guidelines click the "Report Abuse" link to notify the moderators. Responding to the comment will only encourage bad behavior.
Don't use profanities, vulgarities or hate speech. This is a general interest news site. Sometimes, there are children present. Don't say anything in a way you wouldn't want your own child to hear.
Do not attack other users; focus your comments on issues, not individuals.
Stay on topic. Only post comments relevant to the article at hand.
Do not copy and paste outside material into the comment box.
Don't repeat the same comment over and over. We heard you the first time.
Do not use the commenting system for advertising. That's spam and it isn't allowed.
Don't use all capital letters. That's akin to yelling and not appreciated by the audience.
Don't flag other users' comments just because you don't agree with their point of view. Please only flag comments that violate these guidelines.
You should also know that The Sacramento Bee does not screen comments before they are posted. You are more likely to see inappropriate comments before our staff does, so we ask that you click the "Report Abuse" link to submit those comments for moderator review. You also may notify us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us the profile name of the user who made the comment. Remember, comment moderation is subjective. You may find some material objectionable that we won't and vice versa.
If you submit a comment, the user name of your account will appear along with it. Users cannot remove their own comments once they have submitted them.
