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

CourseWhat you need to know
Ancil HoffmanStrong all around; one more week to take advantage before greens plugged
Bing MaloneyCity Four-Ball this week; area’s best amateurs should have no complaints
Castle OaksFairways and greens outstanding; with Monday’s rain, followed by warm temperatures this week, the rough will be U.S. Open thick before you know it
Lincoln HillsIf you use nice, new yellow range balls on over-water shots, you wouldn’t be first
MatherGreens great, fairways soggy at course that may have been hurt least by drought
Poppy HillsReopens April 4; NCGA member course accepts tee times 30 days in advance
River OaksA good drainer; fairways OK but still not filled out after winter dormancy; greens hairy and slow; bunkers horrible; good deals on Internet; a peaceful place to play
WildhorseYou wouldn’t know it rained this week at great drainer; cart riders get best value
Wild WingsReally greened up in past week; grass still a bit thin in fairways; greens great
