How to Design a Golf Course Bunker An Interview with Golf Course Architect Kevin Norby Kevin Wholesale Baseball Jerseys , what are the most important considerations in golf course bunker designs? The placement and the use of bunkers is probably one of the most important considerations in designing a golf course. It helps define the landing areas , it makes for a visually interesting golf course and in many cases it?s what makes the course strategically challenging. There are a variety of styles of bunkers. On a public daily fee golf course, you would probably find less bunkers than you would on a private or a destination golf course. The cape of the bunker might not be as dramatic and therefore they might be less challenging to play out of and also a little bit easier to take care of. What do you mean when you say the cape of the bunker? The cape is the crown of grass that comes over the top of the bunker, the mound on the back side of the bunker that adds some elevation change. If the capes are very steep and dramatic, they are probably a little more difficult to maintain. This could mean be a little more manual labour, raking of the sand and some hand mowing. What are your thoughts about ?hidden bunkers?? I think the holes that people seem to remember and enjoy the most are the ones where they can see everything unfold in front of them. They can see all the bunkers; they can see the water hazards and the wetlands. You want to be able to see the hole when you?re preparing to hit your shot so you can make an intelligent decision on how to play it. Typically we would not put bunkers behind a green where they can?t be seen. However, there are times where we might propose a ?catch? bunker or a ?savior? bunker in that location. If for instance there is water behind the green, we may put a bunker behind the green to gather a shot that trickled off the green, rather than penalize a player with a full one stroke penalty for going off the edge. As a golf course designer Cheap Baseball Jerseys , we are typically using bunkers to frame the holes and define the landing area.
