Flood damage to home from golf course

We live in Riverhills Community in Little River, SC. The 8th green is above us and constantly sends water to our backyard when it rains. Since we moved here in May of 2015 we have been after the course to put in a berm as well as a ditch or French drain to contain their water. They attempted to fix the drain issue by putting in one drain but it drains a bit uphill and emptied out on the golf course grit which just filled in the drain with the first rain. With the past heavy rains we had water flowing in through the back wall of our home which was into three rooms. We were running two wet vacs, and at times of heavy flow, couldn't keep up with the flow into our home! The golf course hasn't responded to any of our calls, txts or videos of the three rivers off their course into our home. fTo add insult to injury on Tuesday morning they drained the sand traps on 8 which drained directly into our backyard once more! Then they were then able to open the course for play! Do we have any recourse for them to pay for these damages? The sheetrock, insulation and rugs have to be replaced as well as some of the contents which is already molding dispite our best efforts to dry it out. Is there a law in SC stating they are responsible for their water?
