Some New Sand

A few of the bunkers have received additional sand.  Luke Sweeterman, our Equipment Technician, fabricated us a tool to measure the depth of the sand in all of the bunkers.  It was used to show us where we were less than 5" deep.  Four bunkers were indentified as needing additional sand.  (Greenside bunker on #1, greenside bunker on #6, left greenside bunker #15 and the right greenside bunker at the practice area.)  We used a mechanical rake and water to help the sand settle and firm up.  It will take a few good rain events for the consistency to equal the other bunkers on the course.
