There's a crater where the fifth hole used to be at West Bolton Golf Club.

Thursday's flooding flowed through the course, bypassing preventative culverts and destroying the car path through the fifth hole.

Jeff Brown, the general manager, says closing for one day costs them thousands of dollars. That doesn't include the tens of thousands they will have to pay to repair the damage.

"It was too much," he said of the flooding. "We could never imagine we could have that much water coming out of the mountain off a little brook."

He plans to make a path for golfers around the damage so he can open as scheduled on Saturday. The tournament planned for this weekend is still on, and members and guests are encouraged to sign up.
