Please leave rakes inside the bunkers
By Todd Mathews
Golf Course Superintendent
At Lake Tansi golf course we ask that golfers please leave the rakes inside the bunker edge after each use. We have 40 bunkers on the course and each one has 2 rakes. When mowing around the bunkers, if the operator has to get off and on his lawnmower 80 times to replace rakes, time and payroll are being wasted. The U.S.G.A. has no rule against leaving a rake inside a bunker. So, in an effort to increase productivity and reduce expense, please leave the rakes inside the bunker when you are finished raking the sand. Thank You!
