The Bee posse's weekly update of the latest in area conditions, bargains, etc.
Course What you need to know
Cherry Island Greens not up to their usual high standard soft, with waffle-style shoe prints common; No. 13 tee box, the worst on the course, in the process of being redone
Dry Creek Greens rebounding quickly from Sept. 24 aerification; fairways a mishmash but being mowed down nicely; teeing areas, untrimmed trees remain weak links
River Oaks Greens still rough after last week's punching, and it's been awhile since bunkers have received any TLC, but fairways in excellent shape
Teal Bend In better shape than most fairways firm but greens/collars soft; with so much construction on surrounding roads, you might want to call for best routes
Timber Creek Generally nice all over even if greens a bit on the mushy side
Woodcreek Extreme watering everywhere (fairways, rough, greens) has everything soft/slow
Aerified last week: Castle Oaks, Haggin Oaks (MacKenzie and Arcade Creek back nine), River Oaks, WildHawk
Aerified this week: Davis, Diamond Oaks, Indian Creek, Lincoln Hills (Orchard), Mather, The Ridge
Scheduled to aerify next week: Whitney Oaks

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 email@example.com. 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.
