Mother Nature Strikes

Hail storm does crazy amount of damage to major championship golf course

August 8, 2018

We were saddened to hear of the latest example of golf course vandalism on Tuesday. But hours later, we were reminded that Mother Nature is capable of doing a lot more damage than any joyriding teen. Just check out these incredible photos taken at the Broadmoor in Colorado Springs following a sever hail storm:

Wow, that's a lot of pitch marks to repair. . . Good luck to the club's greenkeepers.

The Broadmoor has hosted four professional major championships, most recently this year's U.S. Senior Open, which was won by David Toms. Sadly, it doesn't look like it will be hosting golfers of any skill level for a bit. In any event. . .
