USGA Bunker Sand Coming Soon!!!
And you thought our bunkers were hard?? They are getting soft, very soft....
Part of the challenge of any golf round is to get out of the sand when you hit into a trap by mistake – and it’s always a mistake - right! We have tried various grades of sand over the years in an effort to keep sand in the traps with the severe winds we can get on our site. We have erred to heavier sand and this has had its challenges for you - and fore us.
Muskoka Highlands will be undergoing an extensive bunker renovation project this season switching out our current "non-USGA" spec bunker sand to a “USGA “spec sand. This bunker renovation will be somewhat of a lengthy process over a month or so but once completed will be an outstanding playing surface. The decision to change out the sand was quite easy due to drainage issues and playability issues. The current "non-USGA" sand that we are using has a tremendous amount of fine clay and silt particles which tends to clog the drainage tiles in the bunkers creating extra unwanted water features on the course after a substantial rain. The new sand will be provided by Hutcheson Sand and Mixes, a local company out of Huntsville, which has been an industry leader in golf course sand and mixes for numerous years. We currently have two bunkers on the course (left side fairway bunker on 3 and greenside bunker on 5) for you to try and see what we are going to be using on the whole course.
So what are we doing with the old sand? We will be carefully removing and using the current sand to top-dress our 12th fairway. It has always had drainage issues and by adding this sand layer we hope to raise the level of the fairway as much as possible to allow better drainage. This will help reduce standing water thereby reducing winter damage and allowing play that much sooner after a heavy rain.
I would love to get your feedback on the new sand - I value your opinion.
Catch me at the course or email me email@example.com.

Playground Sand - Hospital For Sick Children Study
In December 2009 The Hospital for Sick Kids, Toronto, published the results of a multiyear study titled, “School Playground Surfacing And Arm Fractures In Children: A Cluster Randomized Trial Comparing Sand to Wood Chip Surfaces” *. The findings of this real-world study indicated that granite sand surfaces substantially reduce the risk of arm fractures and other injuries caused by falls from playground equipment when compared with wood fiber surfaces. Subsequently, in the fall of 2010, independent surface impact tests were performed on two playgrounds that have had Hutcheson’s protective surfacing product installed for 10 years and have never been rototilled. These tests indicated that our granitic sand retained its CSA Compliance despite the lack of maintenance over ten years, even when the drop height of the load cell significantly exceeded the fall height of the play equipment.
