New this year at one of my three home courses are some bunker rakes with rounded handles. See image below:
Rounded handle good for many reasons - click to enlarge
I can think of several ways this handle is better for golfers or the course:
1. The handle doesn’t leave six foot long imprint in the sand, keeps bunker more pure
2. The handle is easier to grab when accessing the rake
3. The handle won’t stop a golf ball from rolling. Ball will roll under it.
