Bunker Sand Refurbishing

We are in the process of refurbishing the sand in the bunkers.
You may notice some color inconsistencies in the next couple of weeks as we blend the new and old sand together. We are blending a new sand that is a shade darker than the existing sand for performance reasons. The existing sand when wet becomes heavy and does not drain properly producing poor playing conditions. By blending in a better draining sand we will improve the condition of the bunkers.
