Cosumnes rips levee, floods South Course

| Filed under

Repeating the damage it inflicted on Rancho Murieta Country Club in 1997, the Cosumnes River broke through the golf course levee early Friday and flooded two holes at the eastern end of the course. The river also flooded the first green, echoing 1997's damage. No homes were threatened.
