The Bee posse's weekly update of the latest in area conditions, bargains, etc.
Course What you need to know
Apple Mountain Very good overall; greens not as fast as usual but rolling true
Empire Ranch Solid shape tee through green
Haggin Oaks MacKenzie showing some evidence of to-be-expected summer fatigue; greens rolling fine, if a bit spongy from heavy watering
Lincoln Hills A well-run and organized operation; conditions OK on Orchard course
Morgan Creek Smooth and true greens slower than they look; fairways and tees good, too
Wildhorse In typical shape for midsummer good, not great, with nothing standing out
