The Bee posse's weekly update of the latest in area conditions, bargains, etc.
Course What you need to know
Diamond Oaks Entire course, but greens especially, in outstanding condition the past week
Empire Ranch Greens fantastic fast and smooth; rumor has it that a new mower is working wonders; $47 on Tuesday was expensive, but the conditions make it palatable
Teal Bend No matter how hard it rained overnight, carts likely off path on area's best drainer
Timber Creek Bunkers stand out as among area's best; kudos to Wendy for breaking 80
Whitney Oaks Food and golf deal if playing Friday; fairways nice; greens roll at moderate pace
Woodcreek A good value with greens, fairways both in nice shape
