Halloween Storm

Hole 13 tree on left of fairway
Here are a few of pictures of the damage from the overnight storm. The holes with the worst damage are 6, 13 and 10.  We ended up with 5 inches from the Halloween rains.

Cups on 6, 3, 10 all looked like this.  The flag sticks didn't give or come out of cup so cup shifted.

It looks like possibly a small tornado or straight line winds ripped through the golf course Friday night / Saturday morning across holes 6, 3, 10, 14, 15, 13.  We lost 4 trees on 6 including the top of one of the biggest ones at the dogleg.  The remainder of the large tree at the dogleg needs to be removed.  On hole 13 we lost 1 large tree on the left side of the fairway and 3 or 4 in the far right rough.  14 lost 1 tree on the right.  10 has a lot of downed limbs and debris.
