Bunker edge compacting

We rented a plate compactor the last 2 weeks to tamp the bunker edges of all greenside bunkers. We added new sand after Hurricane Irma. The sand is called G-The angularity and larger particle size of G/Angle not only increases playability, but also significantly reduces bunker maintenance costs.G/Angle bunker sand will: • PROVIDE GREATER WIND RESISTANCE TO DECREASE PRODUCT LOSS • STAY IN PLACE BETTER ON STEEP BUNKER FACES DUE TO INTERLOCKING PARTICLES • PROVIDE EXCELLENT DRAINAGE • REDUCE THE FREQUENCY AND SEVERITY OF WASH-OUTS • DECREASE LABOR EFFORTS NEEDED TO COMPACT / FIRM-UP BUNKERS
