The Bee posse's weekly update of the latest in area conditions, bargains, etc.
Course What you need to know
Auburn Valley Our guy in group that "plays them all" says best conditions he's seen this year
Bing Maloney Really good, especially for this time of year when Bing typically has sagged; greens fast and firm, full coverage in fairways
DarkHorse Greens/fairways mostly good; tees struggling during weed abatement project
Lincoln Hills Both courses OK; range excellent for hardpan practice
Sevillano Links Fantastic shape tee through green; a must-stop if headed to points north
Turkey Creek Greens/fairways fine; keep ball in short grass because rough can be clumpy
Woodcreek Greens sweet three weeks after punching; seed in bare fairway spots promising
Aerified last week: Antelope Greens, Cordova, Dry Creek
Aerified this week: Bass Lake, Castle Oaks, WildHawk
Scheduled to aerify next week: Davis, Mather, The Ridge
