This week is another big milestone at the Valley. We started building the sand traps. The sand traps were shaped last year and a drainline was brought into the bunker but that was it. The procedure this year is to excavate all the debris in the bunker,edge the bunker, line the bunker with silt which is free of stones (99%), install drain tile in the low spots in the bunker and fill with USGA spec. sand. The sand we are using is a cream coloured sand from Ohio, commonly referred to as “Ohio Sand”. Our decision to use this sand was improve on the existing local brown sand currently at Victoria Park West.
I am sure our customers will appreciate the improved look and playability.
Until next time.
