First Calgary, then Toronto — golf courses hit by flooding

They are calling it the most rain to ever hit Toronto in one day. Judging by some photos found on Twitter of Weston and Islington, I’m not shocked. I hear some courses — like Scarboro — came through it largely unscathed. But Weston had a new waterfall and Islington was under water. I have no reports of other clubs, like Donalda, which have been hammered in flooding in the past.

The 11th at Islington — the course is closed “until further notice.”
