Dougherty County - Spring flooding cost a south Georgia golf course tens of thousands of dollars. Parts of Radium Springs Golf Course are still covered in water, but most of the holes are drying out.

The course has been closed for two weeks. Flood water left behind muddy golf cart paths, debris, and sand traps where there weren't any before. Owner Darrell Ealum says repairs will cost him between $30,000 and $50,000.

"We've lost roughly $30,000 in revenue. The expenses don't stop, you still have to keep your people. Right now, we're spending a lot more expenses in cleaning up. My original estimates were between $20,000 and $50,000, and that will be pretty close," said Ealum.

The golf course will open Tuesday, but only the front nine holes are playable. Ealum hopes to open the full course in the next two weeks.
