The Architects Golf Club in Lopatcong, New Jersey was suffering from poor drainage on its golf course. Every time it rained, the bunkers would fill with water, which would spill over onto the fairway and damage the grass. It would take countless man-hours to repair the course so it was in a playable condition. As a result, the golf club embarked on a project to redesign the traps with proper drainage.
Braen Stone was contacted by the head golf course superintendent to supply the 4,000 tons of white bunker sand for this project out of its Franklin Quarry. It was very important that the bunker sand that would be provided to The Architects Golf Club had a water infiltration rate of at least 21 inches per hour. This would prevent the bunkers from filling with rainwater during a storm.
Braen Stone was a perfect fit for the job, it could supply bunker sand that has a water infiltration rate of 26 inches per hour and its limestone quarry provides a bright white sand – perfect for a golf course!
