|The original bunker sand and perimeter sod is removed|
The base of the bunker is then cleaned and smoothed to improve drainage and prevent native soil contamination.
|Trying to find the correct height for the new bunker face to make it fair yet visually appealing|
|The base of the bunker is cleaned and the perimeters cut down to provide a defined edge between the bunker sand and turf grass before the new sand is installed|
New sand is then placed into the bunkers at a depth of 4 inches around the perimeter to approximately 6 inches toward the center. A vibratory plate is then used to compact the sand to prevent 'fried eggs' and ultimately firm up the hazard to provide a fair shot for golfers.
|The sand used in the new bunker is the same sand that has been used at Copperleaf for many years and is mined locally|
|The finished product provides a stark contrast between the new, white sand and the green turf grass surrounding it.|
