Sand in bunkers
Each season, the staff adds sand to bunkers based on the overall depth of the sand in the bunker. Players and wind help to remove the sand each season. We will bring in some additional sand to add to a number of other bunkers in the next few weeks. We will use the culitivator on the bunker rake which will help to mix new sand in with the older material to help keep the bunkers consistent for our players.
