Floods Leave Golf Course Needing Repairs
(Le Mars) -- The Willow Creek Golf Course at Le Mars suffered some damage as a result of the recent flooding of Willow Creek and the Floyd River. Golf course grounds manager Brian Schultz says the golf holes next to the rivers sustained the most damage.

Schultz says crews from the City's public Works Department assisted this morning with a bridge that nearly was washed away.

Schultz says he is uncertain as to the amount of money it will take to get the course back into playing condition, and to how much revenue was lost due to having to close the golf course. He is thankful for the huge number of volunteers who have helped with the clean up efforts.
The golf groundskeeper says a couple of the greens needed some delicate attention when clearing the debris left behind from the floods.
