Lake Windcrest is open. We will be playing. I’ve talked with the course and it looks like all is well.
I received a very nice e-mail from the Raveneaux golf club, there will be no golf at the course all week. SO as you can imagine, we will cancelling golf on Tuesday 8/29.
Hope that everyone has made it through the weather issues this weekend and have avoided any flooding in their homes.
