Published: Wednesday, Sep. 18, 2013 - 12:00 am | Page 3C

The Bee posse's weekly update of the latest in area conditions, bargains, etc.

Course – What you need to know

Ancil Hoffman – Fairways a little spotty as the gradual transition to Bermuda continues

Apple Mountain – Great conditions, good rates, mediocre pace of play this past week

Bartley Cavanaugh – Fairways excellent; greens seem to be cut tighter and roll faster than in past

Cherry Island – A little wet in the fairway, a lot tough in the rough; rates a solid B

DarkHorse – Teeing areas generally poor; fairways and fees good; greens just OK

Diamond Oaks – As nice as it gets at 50-year-old Roseville muni, especially on the greens

Empire Ranch – Greens and fairways good, firmer than at most other places

Haggin Oaks – A lot of water on MacKenzie course; Arcade Creek side very playable

Mather – Greens good (No. 2 troublesome); collars showing some wear; another B

Rocklin – Almost all good (a few spotty fairways) at previously named Sunset Whitney

Aerified last week: Catta Verdera

Scheduled to aerify next week: Antelope Greens, Cordova, Dry Creek
