07 Aug Bunker Rakes
You may or may not have noticed the green chief style rakes have been placed out on all the front 9 bunkers with heavy ones removed for repair. The back 9 will be done as well once we receive another shipment of the rakes.
With the new chief rakes going out and more being placed in larger bunkers to service the hazard it is a timely reminder to make sure the rake is placed in the flat base of the bunker to avoid balls coming to rest on the slope.
If the ball moves when the rake is taken away it makes it difficult to place the ball back on the slope under the rules of golf. (see picture). As always it is important etiquette and your responsibility to rake bunkers after you play out of them, fill in any divots you make, and repair pitch marks on the greens you cause.
