Bunker renovation

Over the last few weeks we've been re-shaping the bases of some bunkers and at the same time removing stony subsoil that migrates to the surface and contaminates the sand.  We dig out the stony material (In some areas of the course the subsoil is more gravel than sand.) re-shape the base and put in a layer of stone free soil before topping up with sand.  When shaping the base, we aim for a bowl shape with the lowest point about two thirds back from the bunker face, so that most balls will roll away from the face.
