Cyclone Irina hit Durban...

As most of you are aware we had a flood in the last week of November 2011 where the 16th , 9th and 15th fairways where a meter (36inches) under water for a week before we could pump it off. January arrived and we had 9mm rain for the first 2 months of the year with temperatures averaging 32C + (95F) and the course dried out tremendously being build on sand dunes. Then...

Cyclone Irina hits Durban and drops 230mm (9inches) of rain in 12 hours, flooding the the course again !

16th Fairway

9th Fairway

Driving Range

I took the TLB and made a trench through the road running next to the 16th fairway and installed a drain , draining excess water standing on the fairway in case the ever happens again.

It took us 4 days to pump all the water ,clean the course , fix all the bunkers and cut up and remove the 13 trees that wnet down in the storm.
