THE PLAYERS Preparations: Fairway Bunker Sand Additions

With THE PLAYERS right around the corner, the crew has been tasked to follow up the bunker root removal process with adding bunker sand to meet the PGA TOUR tournament regulations.  The initial step in this process is checking the sand depths throughout the bunkers for accurate sand dispersion. The recommended depth of sand is 4 to 5 inches on the bunker floors and 1 to 2 inches on the faces. Adding new sand to the bunkers as soon as possible will ensure adequate settling and firmness for ideal playing conditions.
