Underground Caves Found Beneath Golf Course

In May of 2015, a small sinkhole formed on the putting green at a golf course owned by billionaire Bass Pro Shops founder Johnny Morris. Officials went into overtime, rushing to fill it up and carry on with business as usual. Experts told the business tycoon to fill the hole and forget about it. Yet, Morris was curious and wanted to see what was down there.

Rain fell in December; instead of creating a small pond, the water mysteriously disappeared. Morris and his project manager determined something below was sucking it in. They didn't realize there was a cavernous tunnel system below. The golf course was sitting right on top of this cave.

One of Morris' workers noticed water pouring through a remote cave they had been exploring since 1993. Morris said, “So I knew there was a connection. And that’s when we started to dig.” As they searched further, they found limestone formations.

Morris doesn't mind the huge cost involved. He explained, “Whether it’s just like a foxhole thing you have to crawl in or whether there’s big caverns, that’s the mystery, and that’s the exciting part of all of this. People say I’m crazy but I’m happy about every nickel we’ve spent down here.”
