Bunker Maintenance Update

We finished the back 9 bunkers early this morning. The plan is to finish the front 9 bunkers by the end of the week. This process consists of checking depths of the sand, moving sand in areas of necessity, plate compact the sand, rake and implement the smooth perimeter within the bunkers. The plate compaction is very important during this process. We want to make sure the edges or first interior foot of the bunker is compacted. This will reduce erosion from precipitation events. Yesterday we received 3/4" of rain within 25 minutes and experienced no wash around the perimeter of the bunkers. The compacting will definitely aid in the aesthetics and maintenance of the bunkers throughout the golf course.
