NAPLES, Fla. - The sand traps are no where to be found at the Quail Run Golf Club. Instead, they're more like small lakes.
"We've had a lot of rain," said Bergdoll.
Harold Bergdoll, the golf club's General Manager, said in his 17 year working at the North Naples golf course, he's never seen the course under so much water.
"In one 8 hour period, we had 8 inches of rain," said Bergdoll.
And he's losing thousands of dollars because of it. On days when the weather is the scoreboard leader, Bergdoll is forced to close the course or make people walk.
"Golf carts out there are just going to tear up the course."
Then has has to send his staff home.
14 48 34 This time of day we have downpours, and whoever is on the course they come back in here and they're gone, they dont even use the dining room, their soaked," said Bergdoll
We asked county officials what can be done to make the water drain quicker. They said there's no quick fix, the swale systems are designed to hold the water. But Bergdoll doesn't think they can handle more rain and he doesn't have the equipment to fix it himself.
"We have to get rid of this water somehow and we're just praying that we're not going to get much more rain."
