Perfect weather over the last two weeks helped us finish off the seeding off all bentgrass areas, and gave us a great start on bunker work. A glimpse of the the bunker renovation process can be found below.
After old bunker sand is removed, rough shaping of bunkers begins with a bulldozer.
Further shaping and edging is performed by hand and with smaller equipment.
Final shaping is approved by our architect taking into account many factors including visibility from the tee or fairway.
Drainage lines are trenched and pipe is installed.
Gravel is then placed in the floor of the bunker.
Better Billy Bunker polymer is sprayed over the gravel layer locking the gravel in place.
Bluegrass sod is installed around the perimeters before placement of the ProAngle bunker sand.
