Heavy rains create a mess for Baldwin County golf courses – FOX10 News | WALA

April 17, 2015

It was a quiet day on the links at the Lake Forest Golf Club. Things have largely dried out from the heavy rains over the last couple of days, but that means Thursday morning was spent cleaning up certain spots around the course disturbed by the rain, like the sand traps.

“It could add another five to seven hours of prep work to get them back to where they need to be. And if it’s real bad, and the sand washed out of the bunkers, it’s a matter of having to haul fresh sand in to top it off,” Erik Tanner, golf course superintendent, said.
