PLAYERS Stadium Bunker Repair

Over time, some of the PLAYERS Stadium pot bunkers lost their original shape. They began to have sand flashed faces instead of a grass-face.  The high bunker lips and sand flashes were starting to cause play and ruling issues with plugged balls. Edging bunkers frequently and poor golfer etiquette (exiting bunkers up the steep faces) are the main cause of the bunkers losing their original design. During the June course closure for aerification, we began the project of reshaping and sodding some of these problematic bunker faces.
