Blackmun opening of the course was bad timing. It coincided with the beginning of a wet cycle.
"The course had 13 floods in seven years," he said, "When we opened it, there had been 19 years since there was a summer flood."
Summer floods not only disrupted the revenue flow, but also damaged the grass. Blackmun gave up on the course in the middle of the 2002 summer, when another flood hit.
The course closed in 2002.
