Abstract/Contents:Evaluates the role of sand particle size and shape in performance. Discusses a procedure to "help you... narrow down your choices to several technically suitable sands." Describes a study conducted to predict bunker sand performance at the Los Angeles Country Club in Los Angeles, California. Results indicated that "for more rounded sands, a ratio of greater than 2:1 for medium to coarse sand particles will result in significantly firmer bunkers with penetrometer readings of greater than 3.5kg/cm2. However, the results for angular sand were quite different. In this case, all five sand mixtures were extremely firm, with penetrometer readings of 4.5 kg/cm2 (the highest reading possible on the penetrometer)."
