When it rains it rains that's for sure.  We came in on Saturday afternoon to do some prep work for the Pro am and it started raining at around 4.30pm and didn't stop until about 5am.  250mm fell in that time with the bulk in the front between 11pm and 2am.  A lot of the water had already drained off by the morning but then the combination of a high tide and water coming down the river from upstream pushed the water in on to the courses.  The river broke its bank behind 1R green which is always the first place to go and it must have been fairly high by the high water mark on the speed hump below.  A lot of water has drained off the courses again by 4pm Sunday but quite amazingly the forecast is for the worst to arrive overnight Sunday.  We have not lost any trees at this stage although once the ground gets wet that's when that may well happen but there is certainly some debris out there.

 

Debris everywhere.
