Do we have a policy on how rakes should be placed back into bunkers?

Yes, we do. The policy is posted on the notice boards in the changing rooms . As a reminder, the rake should be placed fully in the bunker with the handle pointing away from the green, or roughly in the direction of the tee. The reason for placing the rakes fully in bunkers is that it helps the green keeping staff with course maintenance. If rakes are left partially out of bunkers, the green keepers will have to get off their mowers to replace the rakes fully in the bunkers to allow the surrounds to be cut. For health and safety reasons a mower cannot be dismounted and left running and requires them going through a process of switching off and on various safety features of the mowers. So, a rake not placed correctly in a bunker can add significant time to the general everyday maintenance tasks.
