THE COURSES BooK a tEE tiME quality control Director of Agronomy Jonas Conlan explains why now is the best time of year to tee it up W hen it comes to teeing it up for a round of golf in the Coachella Valley, there's no better time than the present. Just ask Indian Wells Golf Re- sort's Director of Agronomy Jonas Conlan. "In my opinion, the best thing about playing our golf courses this time of year is the weather and conditions combined," Conlan said. "There's probably nowhere in the country where you can count on such perfect playing conditions. The temperatures are in the mid-70s and low- 80s for the most part right now, and the courses are in great shape. It's a perfect time to play." We recently visited with Conlan to learn more about the Celebrity and Players courses and the work that is in- volved in keeping the two championship layouts up to par during peak season. • • • the rough on the Players course was not overseeded this year to allow the Bermuda grass to go dormant. What do you think of the new look? Personally I'm a big fan of the look, as well as the way it plays. I've played the course a couple of times since overseeding in the fall, and twice >> The Players Course features a new look.
