The Bee posse’s weekly update of the latest in area conditions, bargains, etc.
|Course||What you need to know|
|Diamond Oaks||Lady Di shines! Neat and tidy throughout, with greens particularly good|
|Dry Creek||Fairways a little bare but in decent early winter shape overall; greens still nice/fast|
|Empire Ranch||Nothing not to like tee through green, and it’s been that way for a while|
|La Contenta||Greens nice, as usual; have a damp towel because the few ball washers of little use|
|Land Park||Greens smooth and fast relative to past; rough cut to a playable level; troublesome No. 4 green in excellent shape even after rain; as good as it gets|
|Lincoln Hills||Greens on Hills course in best condition to date this year.|
|Rancho Solano||Conditions great in Fairfield; pace of play often snail-like (five hours plus)|
|Teal Bend||Greens rolling true; fairways a little thin; still space in 8 a.m. Thanksgiving shotgun|
|Whitney Oaks||Fairways turning brown, but ball can still be played down; greens fantastic|
|WildHawk||Seems that we love rating the ’Hawk on a scale of 10 – it gets an 8 this week|
|Wildhorse||Pace of play exceptional; condition of bunkers varies wildly from hole to hole|
|Wild Wings||Greens practically perfect; fairways rolling out and with tight lies|
|Yocha Dehe||From first tee atop hill, to private-course conditions, to service with a smile ... wow!|
