The Ranch at Laguna Beach was one of the first golf facilities to adopt the glass crusher and sand screening equipment. This enables them to create the required grades for bunker and divot blends improving their sustainability while making huge cost saving each year. And the glass sand plays great if you are unlucky enough to spend a bit of time in the bunkers.
