Tournament Prep to Storm Clean Up

This afternoon’s storm did not produce much moisture at the golf course, but the intense winds caused significant damage to several trees. The damage was limited to the lower end of the golf course (holes 2, 9, 10 and 16) and also near the Clubhouse. Tables were picked up by the hurricane force winds, resulting in shattered glass on the terrace at the Farmhouse. Below is one of two crab apple trees near the Chipping Green.
