Ronnie Pfleider wasn't sure he would be able to go back to his "second home." The course at Idylwild Golf Club, which Pfleider co-owns, was left in shambles after Tropical Storm Harvey. The storm destroyed equipment, mangled bridges and cut off areas of the course. Pfleider didn't know what came next. Three months later, following a resounding response to letters sent to course members and Pinewood Estates residents, he had his answer. "We're part of this community," Pfleider said. After five months of renovations and rebuilding, Idylwild will reopen its back nine holes sometime in late February or early March.
