Bunker Maintenance

Members may notice a slight difference in playability for the next few days as we have done some maintenance to the bunkers.  They may appear to play softer and plugged lies may result.  Algae was beginning to grow in the bunkers due to them being compacted and holding water.  To deal with this issue we have “cultivated” the bunkers.  By cultivating, we use a metal landscaper rake to break up the surface and allow oxygen and sun light to help dry out the algae.  This will help restore the original “white” look of the bunkers.
