It’s been days of cleaning up at Blair Atholl after the Crocodile River raged through the course in a flash flood on Friday last week, following heavy rain in the catchment area in Krugersdorp. The river rose so high that it covered the par-3 eighth green, swept away the bridge linking tee and green, and swamped the halfway house next to it. The kitchen was knee deep in water. The railway sleeper cart track from the eighth green to the halfway house will have to be rebuilt. The main bridges at No 4 and 16 survived but not the low-level bridges at 16 which disappeared. Currently 13 holes are open, 9-18 and then 1-3 after halfway in the clubhouse. All 18 should be open for play next week.
