    导出博客文章WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. -- It could be a month or two until an iconic West
    Virginia resort reopens after deadly, damaging floods, but its maimed
    championship golf course may not be ready for play much before the PGA Tour
    rolls through next July, resort owner Jim Justice said.The floods that swept
    through West Virginia last week and killed at least 23 people statewide carved a
    path of destruction unseen in generations at the historic Greenbrier.Running
    through the Old White TPC golf course, Howards Creek raged over its banks during
    the pounding storms Thursday. When the worst of it was over, Greenbrier
    employees came upon two bodies on the resort grounds and are draining a lake on
    the 16th fairway to search for more.Dating back to 1778, the 700-room resort
    with an iconic white facade has long been one of the jewels of West Virginias
    tourism industry, hosting presidents and royalty and holding a once-secret
    underground bunker built for Congress in case of nuclear attack during the Cold
    War.But on Tuesday, 300 of the neediest victims from the flood-ravaged area
    occupied the rooms, and the hotel was closed for business while it fed and
    sheltered the disaster refugees.West Virginians are tough, loving, prideful,
    good people. Theyll bond together, and Ive said this many times, theyll get
    through this, said Justice, the billionaire owner who threw open the place for
    use as a shelter.We wont forget it, and were not supposed to forget it. And well
    be scarred with it forever, but well survive it, and well figure it out.Fifteen
    people died in the resorts namesake county, where many were swept away by swift,
    mucky floodwaters. A dead 14-year-old boy washed up against a maintenance shed
    at the resort, and the body of an elderly man was pulled from a lake on the
    grounds.On Tuesday, grandstands set up for a PGA tournament that was supposed to
    start the week of July Fourth now look out on a muddy, gouged-out golf course
    strewn with trash, tires, refrigerators and severed trees.The Old White had been
    manicured to host some of golfs biggest names at a tournament starting July 7.
    The event was going to be free for the first time, and about 300,000 fans were
    expected. But then the rains began, and the water rose and kept rising.On
    Thursday evening, pro golfer Bubba Watson, who has a home at the resort, tweeted
    a video that showed the course had become a flowing river of brown water.After
    the rain stopped, Justice checked out a high-water mark on the 15th hole, a
    record set in 1915. This flood topped it by 5 feet.The tournament has been
    canceled.The Greenbriers newly built chapel was filled with 4 feet of mud. At
    the tennis complex, mud coated a few levels of seats around the year-old center
    court. Water spilled into several areas of the resorts main building.The golf
    course suffered extensive damage.In all honesty, the course will probably have
    to be completely redone, Justice said.The Greenbrier is also set to host the New
    Orleans Saints training camp starting in late July. The NFL team said it is
    still coming.Justice, a coal and agriculture magnate who is the Democratic
    nominee for governor in November, has put the campaign on hold for at least two
    weeks.Honest to Pete, thats the last thing that I need to be doing today, he
    said.Instead of campaign checks, money to help the victims is starting to roll
    in. Justices flood-relief charity, Neighbors Loving Neighbors, has received
    $600,000 in commitments in just a few days, include five-figure pledges from
    former NBA star and West Virginia native Jerry West, Rite Aid and a FirstEnergy
    executive, he said.As they grabbed a free lunch Tuesday, flood victims staying
    at the Greenbrier said they were grateful.Kenneth Hoke, 45, fled his home
    Thursday in Monroe County to stay at the Greenbrier with his wife, Melanie. By
    the time he left, water had crept up to the bottom of the stairs and was rising
    quickly. He hasnt been home since.We were hit pretty hard in the hollow, Hoke
    said. We lost everything we had.
