T... Marks the Spot. Bunker Rake Placement

Bunker rakes are important to everyone involved in the maintenance of bunkers and the playability for your fellow members behind you. Their placement is just as important and follows two criteria; 1. Playability of the hole and 2. Being easily available to access at the points of entry. To make bunker rake placement more clear, we have marked these areas with a BLUE “T”. Turf staff will have the rakes in place every morning; members just have to place them back.

Bunker access points: Most of our bunkers are designed with entry points. As the members understand the playability of the bunkers, they recognize where the safest entry points are and hence, where the rakes are to be placed. Look for a rake... that is your safest entry point. As you come out... place the rake in the same spot. “T” marks the spot!
