Storm clean-up keeps Nelson golf course crew busy

Workers at Granite Pointe woke up Monday morning to a mess at the Rosemont golf course.

Workers at Granite Pointe woke up Monday morning to a mess at the Rosemont golf course.

The wicked storm that blew through the area just after 11 p.m. packed some serious winds that broke huge branches off trees and littered the course with debris.

The most dramatic damage was a fallen 50-foot pole that helps provide netting protection from golf balls along the second fairway. The netting stops balls from going into the townhouses along the course. The pole snapped at its base, but luckily fell away from cars and buildings.
