Steep Bunker Faces

Although most players are concerned only with how the ball got into the bunker and how they are going to get it out, good golfers know that it is important to consider how to get themselves in and out of the bunker as well. Climbing in and out of the steep side of a bunker can cause significant damage to liners and the sod on the bunker face. Entry and exit should always be from the low side.  Please remember to always knock the excess sand off your shoes to eliminate tracking it onto the approaches and especially the greens.
