Hurricane Ike dumped a lot of debris on the Moody Gardens Golf Course, but inflicted only minor damage which keeps the course from opening to the public at this time. Golf Course employees have been working since three days after the storm to get the course cleared of debris and back into operational condition.
“We are doing everything in our power to have the course open in two to three weeks,” General Manager Bill Pushak said. “We look forward to providing Galvestonians a place to relax and release stress, as well as encouraging visitors to return to our resilient island.”
Yeah, golf ain't stressful at all, we're told. By people who've usually tossed their putters 40 yards.
