#11 Bunker renovation
The bunker project on #11 green has gone very smoothly and we are on track to finish the entire project by tomorrow afternoon. The sand is added to a depth of 3-4 inches on the slopes and 4-5 inches in the bottom. Once all the sand is in place, a smooth raking helps us to determine where more sand is needed. The bunker will be hand soaked with a hose to help firm and compact the sand. The crew is completing the finish grading around the bunkers and getting the soil ready for sod in the morning. Although the bunkers will appear ready for play, the dormant sod will not be able to root into the ground and therefore, we cannot allow foot traffic in this area. Once the sod has a chance to root down in the spring we will pull the ropes and signs and open up the complex for play.
