    Re: Bunkers GUR & a fair drop

    I can see that makes sense cliveb.

    However, there are 7 greens on the course at the moment. That's a lot layups and trying to get up and down for par.
    Hcp - 4.6, lowest so far 😊

    None of the bunkers where I play have closely mown grass next to them. We used to have and then were advised by STRI that it is good greenkeeping practice to not have short grass close to the bunker as it can lead to erosion of the grass if the salts have not been fully washed out of sand prior to topping up the bunkers.

    Re: Bunkers GUR & a fair drop

    There seems an obvious solution to the OP.

    Increasing the size of the area around the bunker marked as GUR should reduce, or perhaps even remove, the problem as OP sees it.

    So, talk to the relevant decision making body in the club. If you can convince them that your argument has validity, then happy days, they probably will do something. But if you can't convince them, then it will be lump it.

    Yep; as posted back on page 1 there are solutions if the committee deem it appropriate......
    some metal woods,
    any old irons,
    Pick up balls....

    10.8 and moving the right way again...
