Construction Begins on Number 7 Bunker

Construction recently began on the redesign of the left bunker on number seven’s green complex. The new design calls for the change of the existing bunker by forming two bunkers and bringing them both much closer to the green. Both bunkers will resemble the recently renovated greenside bunker on number one as far as depth and style. We will be utilizing a newer drainage and sand stabilization system known as “the Better Billy Bunker.” Stay tuned for more details about the Better Billy Bunker system and updates on the progress of the project in the upcoming weeks. In the meantime, check out the pictures below marking the shaping progress of the first few weeks.

The new bunker design was flagged and painted by Architect Lester George.

The biggest change outside of two bunkers being created will be the proximity of the new edge to the green.

Notice the new front edge compared to the old bunker.

Again stay tuned for updates...
