|More than 50% of the River Course was under water for hours.|
|Once the river was high enough, it spilled into the pond flooding both #1 and #9|
|Water inching closer and closer to our front gate.|
|Some of the course, including this tee area was under 10+ feet of water.|
Silt was deposited all over the course and cleanup has been extensive. Silt that is left to dry thick like this on the turf will likely kill it and must be removed as well as possible.
As I am sure you have noticed, the River Course has been closed since the flood. Even though it looks as if many of the areas have dried enough for golf, any cart or foot traffic will be very detrimental to the turf. As you can see in these next photos, the damage from carts and foot traffic is substantial and guarantees loss of turf.
|A mistake made by an employee, but shows well what cart traffic will do to the current condition of the turf.|
