Ground Under Repair Continued

The bulk of the work on this project was the cleanup and prep work. Friday morning we began refilling the bunker with sand and had the project completed by lunch time.

Our large material wagon is a valuable asset which allowed us to complete this project rapidly. Here our technician dumps approximately 5 cubic yards of fresh sand into the bunker. Plywood was used throughout the project to minimize damage to the surrounding turf.
We were very thorough in checking that the depth of sand was adequate and consistent.

Spreading the sand and smoothing the surface.
The final step is to "water in" the sand. This helps to settle the bunker and provides a firmer surface.

The project required three days of hard work.
