Bunker renovation continues

Two down and 15 to go.  That is the status of our 2011 sand bunker renovation project of the back nine bunkers.  We started with the fairway and greenside bunker on #10 and also the two leftside greenside bunkers on #11. 
Watering of the sand once it is installed in the bunker is the key to getting it initially packed.  The better it is packed the first time the better and longer it will perform properly. Bill has already wet and packed this bunker twice with the sand pro.

Bill is using a roller squeege to help pack the sand on the steep face of this bunker behind #11 green. 
Sometimes you just have to do things the hard way.  Unfortunately, in order not to damage the floor of the bunkers or the existing drain tiles the crew is having to remove the sand from the bunkers by hand.  Slow process but they are doing a great job at it.
