Heather Locklear and Jack Wagner are teeing up a hot romance, PEOPLE reports in its new issue.

The former Melrose Place costars cuddled in a golf cart and held hands at the Celebrity Classic golf tournament benefiting the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society on April 24.

“They were playful and very much together,” says an onlooker. Their reps had no comment.

The pair were first spotted getting cozy in March, but friends said at the time that they were not dating.

“[They] have been friends since Melrose Place,” a Wagner pal told PEOPLE. “There’s definitely no change in their relationship.”

But a Locklear source now tells PEOPLE the actress, who last month finalized her divorce from Richie Sambora, is in “a really good place. It’s great to see her with someone who appreciates her.”

Locklear, 45, and Wagner, 47, who plays a sea captain on The Bold and the Beautiful, have more than their Melrose memories in common: Both are single parents, she to daughter Ava, 9, and he to sons Peter, 16, and Harrison, 12, with ex-wife Kristina, whom he divorced in 2006.
