The Bee posse's weekly update of the latest in area conditions, bargains, etc.
Course What you need to know
Ancil Hoffman Greens lush but average speed and smoothness; grass range always a bonus
Bodega Harbour Out-of-town special report: Greens, diseased in winter, almost fully recovered
Catta Verdera Fairways nice and rolling out; greens about 90 percent post-April 1-2 punching
Mather Big positive step forward for greens in past week; fairways wide, rough penal
Morgan Creek Clumpy rough results in some tough lies; greens relatively slow; fairways good
Whitney Oaks As tough as ever it's the odd case where more rough might keep some balls from hazard/OB and make course more enjoyable for higher-indexed players; greens fine; fairways iffy in places
Wildhorse Fairways super; greens multicolored but roll true; scruffy bunkers the weak link
Aerified this week: Winchester
