Bill (Birdman) Gengler offered this photo and info Tuesday: "Thought you might enjoy seeing the Keifer Road picture of the flooded bumps today.  It's the area after you take a right turn off Jackson Road. The creek and its surrounding farmland are flooded like a lake from Latrobe Road to Sloughhouse. The county has put up flooded signs in the area. I just like the scene." Click for larger image.

A bunker there flooded 10 days ago, when the river damaged three of the course's holes, two of which remain under repair. Scott Road remained flooded Tuesday morning. Click photo for larger image.

Club cleanup

Tee markerThe Country Club has been cleaning up since Saturday, trying to make the best of Mother Nature’s mess on Holes 10 and 11 of the South Course, which flooded Friday when the Cosumnes River rushed in. General Manager Bill Armstrong says they’ve got seven to 10 people on the job every day, and the work will continue for another week or 10 days. These shots were taken Monday, when workers were cleaning up the 10th tee, which was submerged halfway up the tee-box hill. (The marker stone, right, was completely submerged.) The South Course reopened for play Tuesday, minus Holes 10 and 11, which will be closed for another few weeks, Armstrong estimates.
