Golf Australia - - AROUND THE TRAPS - David Pear­son Echuca, Vic­to­ria

CARE FOR YOUR COURSE Pe­ter Booth was spot on in the Au­gust is­sue when he sug­gested all golfers should play ‘ready golf’.

How­ever, my sug­ges­tion to help all golfers and the ground staff con­cerns course care. If you see a bunker not raked or if the rake is not in the mid­dle of the bunker in the di­rec­tion of play, fix it.

There is noth­ing worse than your ball rolling into a bunker and the rake stop­ping it from rolling to the bot­tom of the bunker. In­stead it stops near the edge, which makes for a far more dif­fi­cult shot. Bunkers are hard enough to get out of.
