Bunker renovations here at Adams Pointe Golf Club have finally been completed. We have reduced the total number of bunkers on the property from 37 to 30. Removal of certain bunkers was necessary because of flooding and other maintenance issues while others were removed or relocated because of lack of play. We feel these renovations have made the golf course more aesthetically pleasing and also maintenance friendly. The Arkansas Premier Play white sand stands out and defines the bunker edges nicely. This sand also has a high infiltration rate. That along with the Better Billy Bunker liner and new drainage systems should hopefully reduce, if not eliminate, washouts and standing water issues.
With the bunkers just recently being finished some of the sand feels soft and is susceptible to the dreaded "fried egg" lie. This is more prevalent on the front nine since the back nine was finished a few months ago. Over time and with a few heavier rains the new sand will settle and become a more consistent playing surface.
