Although sand bunkers are not the ideal place to be hitting from, they are a key feature of golf courses and need treatment as such. Bunkers are affected through usage, weather conditions and contamination; causing loss of contoured edges and create drainage problems. On any course, bunker renovation will have to occur. By proper course maintenance, a renovation will give your guest consistency in their game and make your course memorable. Here are some benefits of undergoing bunker renovation:
Regaining original shape of a bunker: Bunkers that are shallow and designed to give easier visibility for guests will be more acceptable to erosion than deeper bunks. By regaining the bunkers original shape and deeper depth, it gives your course a professional clean look that complements the rest of the fairway.
Creating a new look for a bunker: Familiarity is desirable when revisiting a golf course. But a new design of a previous bunker will keep the golf course looking modern and give your guest something new to admire when revisiting your course.
Proper drainage: During the rainy season, proper drainage will protect your bunker from washouts and further erosion. Over time, lack of drainage will be the main contributor to bunker deterioration and contamination. This can lead to many hours of shoveling sand into the bunker, attempting to prolong further erosion. Proper bunker renovation will give your sandbox adequate drainage. Preventing further labor and bunker erosion.
Coloring of sand: Over time, weather and usage will create discoloration of the original bunker. This will affect the bunkers appearance and start giving signs of aging to your beautiful course. Existing bunker-sand will need cleaning of contaminants. While new sand will need integrating into the bunker during a renovation. Giving your course a younger look!
