Choosing the Right Sand for Your Bunkers
For owners and operators of golf courses around the country, the goal is to produce high quality courses on which golfers enjoy playing. And while the main focus is on maintaining clean fairways and well-manicured greens, you cannot forget about pristine bunkers. Quality bunkers work to add both beauty and challenges to golf courses, and choosing the right sand can go a long way in successfully doing both of these things.
The United States Golf Association, or USGA, has determined that there are several factors to be considered when selecting sand for a golf course. Those factors are particle size, particle shape and penetrometer value, crushing potential, chemical reaction and hardness, infiltration rate, color, and overall playing quality. As one of the four major areas to be considered when evaluating bunkers, according to the USGA, sand selection should not be taken lightly.
The Signs of Quality Golf Course Sand
While the above factors may seem like technical jargon, it all comes down to a few practical things when choosing the best golf course sand. Golfers want bunkers that can quickly drain, play consistent, and provide aesthetic beauty to the course.
