Storm of December 2nd & 3rd, 2007

The Advent Storm, as it is being called began early on the morning of December 2nd. A monthly golf event was canceled due to rain and wind. By late afternoon the wine had increased and at 11:30 a.m. our wind gauge recorded winds at 92 mph. Early Monday morning, winds were recorded at 95 mph. By this time, several trees were being blown over and it was decided to close the Club. The storm’s intensity strengthened and did not let up until late Monday night. The Club was without power more than three days. As a result of the hurricane force winds, all the trees on the west side of the parking lot were lost as well as several near the Clubhouse driveway. Superintendent, John Whisler, estimated that more than 200 trees on the golf course were uprooted or broken. Luckily, no damage occurred to the Clubhouse or cart sheds.

The Board decided to close the course for three days to let the green crew get a head start on the massive cleanup. John’s crew was able to open the front nine on the weekend. Cleanup work will continue for several months then an assessment will be made regarding possible changes in the course and planting new trees.
