According to the company's website, part of the course runs through what was once an open pit quarry, which StormTrack5 meteorologist Gary Amble says could be the reason for the collapse.

"We had a cave and the roof essentially over the top of the cave became so burdened with moisture and so heavy, that it just collapsed in on itself," Amble said.

Kind of makes bumpy greens seem like child's play.
