Bunker Preparation for The PLAYERS Begins

With THE PLAYERS Championship only 4 months away, many aspects of course preparation have already begun including the addition of bunker sand to perfect the depths. Bunker sand must have time to compact and make a uniform surface for ideal play ability and visual appearance.  The target depths for sand is 4 inches in the center and 2 inches in all faces.

Sammy and Wes are adding sand here at 16 green side bunker to meet the target depths and appearance.  This process will take a few days to finish all pot bunkers, and a week to complete fairway bunkers.  Due to high levels of play we may return in mid March and add sand to ensure uniformity.
