Cedar Rapids Golf, in case you were wondering . . .

Straight from the CR golf website:

Ellis, Gardner and Twin Pines are open for play today.  Due to the water restrictions, port-a-potties are available at the clubhouse.  Only bottled drinks, candy and chips are for sale as concessions.  Also we ask for your patience and understanding because due to the flood emergency, our clubhouses do not have phones or computers…so we are at a first come, first play status and we will only be able to accept cash or checks for any purchases. 

Jones golf course closed until further notice…
despite sandbagging efforts, the Jones clubhouse took on 3 feet of water, with extensive damage to the interior of the building.  Water has receded from the clubhouse and is starting to receded very slowly from the area around the clubhouse.
Best wishes to all of our customers…the golf staff hopes each of you are safe throughout this difficult time period with the historic flooding of the Cedar river.
Future volunteers needed…as the water recedes from Jones golf course, a major volunteer effort will be needed to restore the beautiful golf course turf…..check back for more details and how you can volunteer.

XXXXXXXX

One of my favorite things about Cedar Rapids is the golf courses. I’ve covered a lot of Greater Cedar Rapids Opens. More than a few times, I’ve had pros comment on the quality of golf here — and the cost and availability.

Jones has needed your help before. I’m sure you’ll come through again.
