As I am writing this, we are flooded and rain continues to fall.  1, 8, 9, and 18 are unplayable, carts have been restricted and the range has been closed for the last few days because of standing water and soggy conditions.  We are mowing what we can, spiking greens when needed and will be pulling the irrigation pumps from their perch shortly.

In preparation for the flooding, everything that could possibly float away was removed from the area.

Currently, 8 and 9 are underwater, 18 is mostly covered.
8 green is half under as of this morning.

A deadly disease - Pythium - showed is ugly head yesterday.  This disease spreads quickly and is typically spread through the movement of water - ouch!  Good thing we sprayed a preventive fungicide application yesterday on all the fairways, we should be protected but may see some breakthrough due to the high pressure.
