3-31-17 Flooding Rain

Friday at 3:00 I took some pictures so you can see where the water was.

High water markings

2016 ‘Little Walnut’ normal flow level. Marks show the 3-31-17 water level.

It dumped a lot of silt on the cart path which we scraped off on Saturday (except the areas that were still under water).  We finished up today along with cutting greens and cups.

Water level at 3:00 Friday 3-31-17

pond #14 fwy marked

Look how close it came to the Fairway Bunker on #14.  About 16″ from entering the bunker.

It will be a while until we get dry enough to get back to picking up debris that was dumped on 12-16 (again).  So cart path only on the back nine for a few days.

16 to 14

16 to 14. GRN JPGWe were clean in the cut turf and only had the natural areas to finish until Friday’s rain.  We have more rain on the way Monday/Tuesday.

With the rain washing the sand in, we have more aerification holes to fill this week.  Plan on seeing us with the topdresser, rotary brush (borrowed from Fox Fire–Thanks Darden) and drag mat.

See you out there…
