I would ask Ryan if he was against the raising, tying of slopes, etc., as much as he just likes the smaller scale and randomness of older bunkers?
I recall the old Cornish and Graves books wrote and diagrammed that fw bunkers ought to be built above grade, and my mentors felt the same, so I had the impression that style developed in the 50's as part of the streamline era.
Ryan, I don't take issue with what you like.I guess I don't mind bunkers, sometimes, where you can see the spoils because no one tried to hide the work. While I realize that probably makes no sense to most anyone here, some of the older courses I've seen where the spoils are just there seem better than the modern method of thinking you are tying them into something when there is not enough spoils, or no land-form to actually make any sort of tie in work.
This thread is randomly drifting away from the focus of the topic, "random bunkering" to bunker styles and/or bunker construction.
