Rotavating Bunker

Due to the good summer and spring rain our bunkers have settled and started to get a bit compacted. We are currently busy with a compacting process by rotavating them , fixing any levels in bunkers and topping up of bunkers where necessary. This should only take 2 days to complete and we will continue this process through the summer months. The main reason for having to compact them is because we don't use a USGA spec sand which is a sand that does not compact because of the particle sizes and shapes of the sand. It is also very crucial that you use the same sand in the bunkers as what your growing medium is made up of on the greens as you will get layering on the greens close to the bunker. Layering causes numerous problems.
