Sand Bunker Detail

The dry and windy weather conditions from last weekend led to many bunker faces being covered with sand. Also, many of the bunkers were littered with debris including small limbs, leaves, and pine straw. In order to keep the course looking its best, a crew of eight employees were given the task to perfect the aesthetics of the bunkers. This process included edging the perimeter, backpack blowing, leveling the depth of the sand, and finally raking the entire bunker with the trap rake.
