    Page 15 of this edition shows a photo of a bunker rake placed with a portion of it in the bunker. This is not the USGA-recommended outcome.

    The Golf Course Superintendent’s Association says this:
    “After considering all of the aspects, superintendents and committees generally agree that rakes should be left outside bunkers in areas where they are least likely to affect the movement of the ball.”

    In the Miscellaneous Decisions On The Rules of Golf, Decision M-2/2 confirms this placement outside the bunker is also the recommended method.

    Perhaps you can correct this mistaken information in the next edition. Rakes should be left completely outside the bunker.
    Thank you.

    Hello Mr. Bagnato, the USGA does recommend that rakes be left outside the bunkers. We’ve tried it that way, but received too many complaints from members, who prefer the rakes partially in and partially out. Since it is just a guideline, and the preference of our members is important to us, we ask that they be left as noted in the January Rec Center News article on page 15.
