Bunker Maintenance and Etiquette
In today's world of golf course maintenance, bunkers have taken on a whole different meaning. Bunkers are considered a hazard but for many golf course superintendents they consume the most time and money from their budgets, just behind greens. In many cases good golfers, especially professional golfers, will aim at the bunkers because they are almost assured of a close to perfect lie or at least one that is relatively consistent and predictable.
Please do your part and rake your tracks out of the bunkers, fix your ball marks on the greens, fill your divots on tees and in fairways, put your trash in the trash cans, ect. In general, treat the golf course as if you own it and want it to be the best it can possibly be each and every day.
