Not Good!

The rain will not give up. I looked at the rain gauge this morning and couldn't believe what I was seeing. The course received another 1.25" of rain on saturated ground. The two creeks flooded badly last night. Standing water and debris are all over parts of #4 the bottom of 6, 7 and 12 and 13 along the big creek. Along the small creek #1, parts of 9 and 10,11, and 16 were badly littered with debris and flooded. The pictures really tell the story!

Rain, Rain go away!

When it rains it pours. That saying has been around forever with good reason it seems to be true. The course is extremely wet today. There will be no carts let out today. On Friday we received 1.25" in 4 hours. In the past week we have received 3.75" and in the last 6 weeks we have received 10.5". Yesterday the course flooded for the 5th time this spring that is not a record but is getting close. We usually flood 3-5 times a year. Due to all the rain the greens will be very soft for the next few days and the green speeds will be slower than usual.
