This, of course, puts what has happened to La Reunion golf resort firmly into perspective. Even so, the disaster has had a devastating impact on the popular PGA Tour Latinoamérica host venue.

Video and images circulating on social media show the resort, located four miles from the volcano, buried by the fall-out from the eruption.
