My home course has Signature designation from design by a famous golfer. It has quite a few bunkers, some of which are shoulder deep.
As in other parts of the USA, we have had lots of heavy rain in late spring and early June. As a result, the bunkers in the lower half of the course are in pretty bad shape. Basically two problems:
- Sand washed to one side, giving a hardpan lie in most of the bunker.
- Soil from shoulders of bunker have washed down, creating layer atop the sand.
Anybody have any tips on how to hit out of the hardpan and dirt-sand mix lies?
