Sometimes Greens Committees will want to talk about something to do with a particular bunker on the course. Maybe they might want refer a number of bunkers.

 

Is there any method that Architects use to reference bunkers on the course?

 

  Something shorthand I am thinking of.

 

 It is rather a mouthful to say/write

 

The "second fairway bunker right side of the fairway on the fifth hole."

 

Maybe there is a green with a number of bunkers nearby. 

 

Maybe there is  way to code each bunker for any discussion or action plan.

Get a map of the course and write a number over each bunker?
Better still give each one a letter on each hole.
In your example above it would be bunker 5b
I'm just pissed off OK? Don't ask.

This is ISG, you didn't really expect a sensible answer.

We just use normal phrases like

Lh trap 5G, RH trap 18G, 2nd trap RH 17F.........


If the super has a bunker maintenance program on Excel, have him print it out for you.
If he doesn't, use the example as above.

We number greens tees and fairways, so bunkers need reference system as well.

Generally if there is an issue at work, they will state ' bunker, rhs, 16green

Ink's referencing system seems far more entertaining.

Unless it's from the best greenkeeper in Qld, then it's fair dinkum information.
