Golf: Course report

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!
