When you fly into the Las Vegas airport (or find yourself on a rooftop bar), you’ll see plenty of desert sand. But, next week, the best sand in Las Vegas will be at the Design & Construction Center on the GIS show floor.

At the Design & Construction Center, you’l see nearly life-sized models of greens profiles. All of that beautiful sand, construction mix, and gravel was donated by Waupaca Sand & Solutions. These are photos of the models as they’re being packed to ship.

Members of the Golf Course Builders Association of America will be making presentations discussing the greens construction process. The Design & Construction Center will also feature appearances by architects, superintendents, and owners sharing tips for maintaining each type of green, as well as tees and bunkers.

While at the GIS, check out the displays to see the best sand in the desert – imported from Waupaca!
