Storm Before the Storm

Many on the East Coast including a number of IGM courses are bracing for the arrival Hurricane Irene. Last night as staff for IGM at Lake of the Woods near Fredericksburg, Virginia finished the last hurrricane preparations, a line of strong storms passed through the area. The course experienced a very distructive microburst falling trees and scattering limbs and debris throughout the property.

Work to clear the greens and allow access around the course took place throughout the day today however the clean-up can't be completed prior to the arrival of Irene. IGM crews will be back to work as soon as conditions are safe. Good luck and stay safe.
