CEDAR HILLS, Utah (AP) -- Cedar Hills has lost parts of its golf course to the runoff-swollen American Fork River.

Mayor Mike McGee says the high, fast waters eroded banks of the river, which crosses the 140-acre Cedar Hills Golf Course.

The city hired an excavation contractor to repair the banks that have been washed away and prevent further erosion by placing large rocks in walls along both sides of the river.

City crews are repairing the golf course's sprinkler system that was damaged by construction vehicles driving along the edge of the river.

McGee isn't sure what the repairs will cost.

City Councilman Jim Perry says that despite the damage and the work, the course is still playable.
