Postcard: Sand Trapping
"It felt more like putting on a clay tennis court, after the abuse of a singles tournament. The brown was made of sand mixed with oil, and steamrolled. There was a broom at edge of the brown to sweep up your footprints after you putted. Or perhaps we were supposed to use the Olympic curling technique and sweep just in front of the rolling ball. "
