Unlike most hazards, the bunker is a playable hazard. I have no problem raking after my shot making it the same hazard for all players, the only problem I have is where to put the rake. Some courses like to put the rake off to the side, others like to keep the rake in the bunker itself. I suppose as long as all players follow the same procedure it keeps things equal.
