Practice Facility Flooded

    The Crawfordsville Country Club’s proximity to Sugar Creek offers a great view of the natural vegetation, flowering trees, and even the occasional deer.  Unfortunately, this proximity also puts us in a bad spot if the creek overflows.  The highest flood mark in over 100 years, on Friday, the Sugar Creek bank let loose a massive amount of water on to the practice facility.

    Over the course of the day on Friday the 19th, Sugar Creek flooded the entire driving range, including the elevated tee and elevated target greens.  We hope it recedes as quick as it flooded.  This is a key time for our new turf to establish itself this year.  Despite having to clear some debris, the thought is that the turf will withstand this water and we should be open as quickly as we can get it ready.  Be patient with us as we recover from Mother Nature.
