The Bee posse's weekly update of the latest in area conditions, bargains, etc.
Course: What you need to know
Ancil Hoffman: Excellent fairways, greens (except for No. 14), tee boxes for early July even bunkers groomed; usable grass on hitting area of driving range hard to find practice area more for getting loose than dialing in ball-striking
Bartley Cavanaugh: In good shape; lots of water keeping grass green, making things humid
Teal Bend: Consensus from multiple reports 8 out of 10 (nice, but notch below best)
Paradise Valley: Excellent overall not a brown spot to be seen down Fairfield way
WildHawk: Greens and fairways near their best; three people hired this month will be dedicated to refurbishing greenside bunkers men's club plays unfinished bunkers as ground under repair
