The Bee posse's weekly update of the latest in area conditions, bargains, etc.
Course What you need to know
Antelope Greens Fairways nice on the four par 4s; tee boxes need help they're mostly uneven; greens healthy but very slow following April 1-2 punching
Cherry Island Green everywhere; lush in fairways; greens roll true no waffling like at other munis that have older greens; definition between fairways and rough a treat rough penal but not unreasonable; new tee on No. 13 nice but yardage on scorecard now inaccurate use yardage on hole sign
DarkHorse Greens recovered from verticut; many bunkers need more sand, fewer rocks
Dry Creek New tee box being built across the creek on No. 1 is more in the middle, so white- and red-tee players won't have to hit a super fade to avoid creek along the left; greens just about "there," and fairways filling in nicely
Lincoln Hills Excellent fairways and aprons on Hills course; greens still healing from March 18 aerification but not bad; practice area seems revitalized, somehow
The Ridge Fairways/tees great; greens have ways to go following March 25-27 punching; brisk pace of play just a tad over four hours; hitting off grass range a bonus
WildHawk Greens still fuzzy but smooth after April 1-2 aerification; rest of course great
Aerified last week: Bass Lake, Turkey Creek
Aerified this week: Bing Maloney, Diamond Oaks
