What is the present – and future – of bunkers, and how does its use impact new golf course design and renovation? These are just some of the topics addressed in the latest “Tartan Talk” from Golf Course Industry, featuring Ian Andrew, ASGCA (Ian Andrew Golf Design).

Andrew notes that the universal definition of a hazard is to “punish by one stroke a poorly played shot.” But, “you can undo the penalty with an extraordinary shot.”

With that as the basis, Andrew takes a detailed look at how the design of bunkers impacts play and following in the footsteps of designers like Ross, Thompson and so many others.
