On the left is PAR ANGLE. On the right is a leading competitor. Notice the difference? PAR ANGLE’s bold white color stands in mark contrast to the dull off-white of the competition.

The USGA reviews seven factors that should be considered when selecting a bunker sand.

The PAR ANGLE Bunker Sand from BUNKER CONCEPTS was evaluated on January 24, 2014, by Tifton Physical Soil Testing Laboratory, Inc.

  • Particle size: 71.6% particles within USGA recommended range. The USGA recommends a minimum of 65% particles within this range.
  • Particle shape and penetrometer value: Mostly sub-angular in the very coarse and coarse sand fractions. Has a penetrometer reading of 3.1 kg/cm2 which means it has a very low tendency to bury based on the fried-egg lie potential test.
  • Crusting potential: (<3%) of silt and clay at 1.9%, so crusting of the surface layer should not be a problem. Chemical reaction (pH) and hardness: The Sand is a silica sand with a soil water pH of 6.1 Infiltration rate: Water permeability rate of 25.2 in/hr. This is a very adequate rate for a bunker sand. The USGA recommends a rate >20 in/hr. for a bunker sand.
  • Color: The sand has a very white color.

The United States Golf Association also specifies particle-size criteria for selecting a bunker sand. Sand in the prescribed range provides the best all-around conditions in terms of ball lie, firmness of footing and ease of bunker maintenance. The predominant particle shape of sand and its “sphericity,” — or roundness — also comes into play. A desired bunker sand shape is angular with a low degree of roundness. The sharp corners of an angular sand help it resist movement after impact from a golf ball, resulting in fewer “plugged” or “fried-egg” lies. PAR ANGLE scores high in all of respects to shape and roundness, making PAR ANGLE a superb bunker sand, and a great addition to any golf course.
