Sand Traps

After the holes for the sand traps are dug, carefully dump the clean, filtered sand in. The sand traps should be accompanied with stone retaining walls to hold back the sand and dirt. Stagger the rocks around the sand pits, trying to avoid major gaps where rain or wind might allow dirt to push through. Back-fill other gaps with dirt, and also use dirt to level out uneven stones.
