A Storm and a Flash Flood

It has been a wet and stormy June so far.  Wednesday, June 23, we experienced a severe thunderstorm with high winds.  Our rain gauge collected 2.5 inches in less than an hour.  The maintenance crew has been working hard to clean up all the debris left by the flash flood and all the branches damaged by wind.  The course is now playable but without riding carts for the time being.

Here is the 4th fairway underwater last night.  Luckily the water went down overnight.


The bridges are underwater after the storm:


Here you can see the debris ring left by the flash flood:


By the Thursday morning, the water was gone and workers raked the debris into piles for removal:


Fortunately, all the golfers left the course well before the flood and nobody was stranded on the other side of this bridge.  This picture was taken after the water had already gone down significantly:


This is 4 fairway the next morning:


The course is now drying out and golfers are out enjoying it.
