Crews spent most of the day Thursday removing water from the KickingBird Golf Club pro shop and restaurant after a waterline in the attic broke during the night.

The damage was discovered Thursday when employees showed up to open the restaurant, said Brian Soerensen, the city of Edmond's head golf professional.

The pro shop and restaurant will open again on Monday, Soerensen said.

The amount of damage is unknown.

“We did everything we were supposed to do,” Soerensen said. “We opened the attic to let the heat up, and we turned the water on. It still froze.”

The pipe that broke was above the women's restroom and restaurant manager's office. Most of the merchandise in the pro shop was not damaged. The carpet will probably have to be replaced, Soerensen said.

“We did what was the right thing to do, and it still happened,” Soerensen said. “That is what is upsetting and disappointing.”
