It is that time of year again when we start to divert all of our labor into preparing the bunkers for the upcoming season. Our first bunker happens to be the fairway bunker on #15. We started here because we had some drainage install inconsistencies and we felt we needed to address this right away. For example, there was a drain basin installed next to the bunker to catch any surface water running down the fairway. Ordinarily this would work great but in this case it was diverted into the bunker drainage. Problems that you have which we did was to much water entering the bunker from below the sand (bunker drain lines) and the ability for debris to enter the basin and clogged the bunker drainage, which has happened. We removed this basin and sloped the intermediate away to divert surface water from washing out the bunker.
Starting next week our team will start on #1 and moving forward for the next month edging bunker edges, checking depths and adding sand. Our tree work is complete with only 6 trees removed and chipped. You may notice during the season a few dead trees in the reforestation areas. We have been instructed by the City to leave the trees alone for the native wildlife.
