Default Texas courses underwater 2015 edition

As many people know. Texas is flooding. Several courses have had pics posted on different Facebook communities. So here is a thread dedicated to that. Ideally course name, location and a few pics here and there.
Pic included is from Gordon lake, in Iowa park, Texas. This was 4 days ago. I'm about to post a pic of the new river that now covers the hole

Yea it's been crazy around here too, I have no course pics but where I live there was a house that was literally carried to the other side of the street and dumped.

Default Trophy club

Found this one today courtesy of Joel Davis from the azle disc golf club. It's trophy club hole 11. It's a good thing this is an elevated basket

Nothing like a gulley-washer to get the rattlesnakes antsy, too. Just had some good rains in the Cascades, so the start of wildfire season is holding off for a few more weeks.

I was just talking to my brother who lives out there and he was complaining about it. I am supposed to be going out there in 2 weeks. I hope it dries out a little by then.

Our local wooded course had to get a bridge rebuilt due to one storm which scraped the landscape clean. 4 railroad ties were AWOL. Our other course is a swamp. Not unplayable, but several holes require alt teeboxes . We had a tree partially uproot and endanger hole 10, so we have to relocate that one until the tree is either removed or shored up somehow.

Got an email concerning AM Worlds Doubles , and in the email they pleaded ," Whoever is praying for rain , please stop".

The Nac Open is going to be interesting, all three of their courses turn swampy in some way or another when it rains. Pioneer and Pecan resemble the everglades after even a moderate shower, I hate to see what they are now.

I think this rules out Trophy Club for Monday. If the water is that high at the pin, the tee box must be under water.
