Dense rough has developed on some of the bunker banks and we're working our way round cutting those that are getting rather too penal. As with the wider rough it is our aim to have wispy, natural looking but playable rough on the fairway bunker banks. When it gets too long and heavy we cut and collect the clippings to remove nutrients which helps us to develop thinner rough for the future.
