Hurricane Harvey Golf Damage Slideshow

Written by mtTXgolf on 12 September 2017.

Water, water, everywhere.

In golf, we love our local tributaries...whether they be creeks, bayous, rivers, lakes or reservoirs. Ninety-nine percent of the time, they add beauty, shot values and beautiful scenery to the courses we love.

But in the aftermath of historic flooding from Hurricane Harvey, these water hazards became much more treacherous than a one-stroke penalty. They became raging rivers that covered some of the state’s top courses, while seeping into the homes built around them.

While Harvey’s impact on the Southeast Texas golf industry is miniscule in the big picture and most courses and clubs have already cleaned up and re-opened, for historical purposes we have collected some of the best golf course damage photos and videos we could find on social media. A few of the hardest hit courses are still closed until further notice.
