Lightning Strikes White Pine on Hole #2

The Thunderstorms that rolled through on Monday night packed quite a punch. Besides the 1.4 inches of rain, we had lightning strike a white pine tree on the far left of number two fairway, approximately two hundred yards from the green. The pictures below should give our players an indication of the damage that can be done from such a strong force of nature. This is the perfect opportunity for me to remind everyone why they are REQUIRED to leave the course when the horns sound. Safety first!!!
