Fire started on Norco side of Santa Ana riverbed, east of hole 12. Winds blowing from north & northeast, to south & southwest. It continued along riverbed south and westward, across from holes 3 & 4. Footage showed helicopters refilling water, from the 'golf gods' lake on hole 18. Couldn't see any golf carts in any footage, assuming all play was interrupted. :-(
Lots of evacuations were ordered for Norco. Hope no loss of life or property happens. Go fire fighters!

Champions tour qualifier was going on today. Play was cancelled.
I just played there Sunday morning.
Hope they protect the course!

QUOTED  Hope they protect the course!

A good thing about fires and golf courses is that green grass almost never burns.

Golf courses are a relatively open space without fuel and plenty of irrigation lines to turn on to prevent fires.

I recommend new golf courses be built all over the foothill communities as a way of preventing fires!

Never could exactly put my finger on it, but I knew there was a reason I liked this guy!

The goal has always been long and straight! But since I can no longer hit them long, hopefully straighter could be achieved more than occasionally?

Amen to that! Maybe the govenor could decree that 'fire break' courses can get a tax break or two!

Good. That wall of weeds needed to be cut down anyway. Will there be a better view now of the river? Also, Hole 3 is going to be easier since I have to start my shot down the left side!
