Rebuilding bunkers next summer, what are you doing with the old sand?


I managed a great bunker project last summer and had tons of old sand to get rid of. I priced out having it hauled away and that was not in the cards. Leaving it in piles was not an option either. We under shot on the amount of sand coming out of the bunkers. There were bunkers that had faces or lips with 2 feet of sand on them. We planned for 5 inches as an average. The project produced enough sand to topdress the fairways with at least a half inch of coverage. We stocked piled the old sand in three locations around the course. I wish I would have screened the old sand to remove the rocks but time was not allowing that either. So I had a company come in and topdress the place using three monster truck units. They did the course one day after we verticut the fairways, so they were open and ready to take on the sand. We spent the next four days picking rocks up on the fairways.
