The Bee posse's weekly update of the latest in area conditions, bargains, etc.
Course What you need to know
Empire Ranch Tees recently sanded but no negative impact; greens rolling fast, holding shots
Mather Greens somewhere between the best they've ever been and pool-table firm, depending on your perspective; fairways much improved; tees a work in progress
Plumas Lake Overall conditions poor even before this week's greens aerification; little to no grass on Bermuda fairways; bare spots the norm in rough; appears months from anything that could reasonably be described as normal, winter conditions or no
Teal Bend All good from firm fairways/greens to pro shop to marshal to beverage cart
Turkey Creek Greens have speeded up; fairways mostly good but bumping prudent in spots
WildHawk Fairways continue good, greens OK but slow; in flight path of sandhill cranes
Woodcreek "The Creek" is playing hard/fast; largely poa annua greens OK but a bit bumpy
