Welcome The Sand Trap.

Not sure I know what your point is…? If you're referring to the name of the site, it of course doesn't have to conform to the Rules of Golf, and honestly… if I had called the site "TheBunker.com" people might have thought it was about wars or something.

And…

So, as you posted this in Rules of Golf, did I misunderstand something? Can you clarify what exactly it is you're trying to say?

I've heard some bunkers referred to as "gravel pits" with good reason.

Just trying to enlighten your golfers 

We don't need enlightened.

Calling a bunker a "sand trap" is understood and accepted slang. The name of the site doesn't need to conform to the Rules of Golf.

Well we could go with upside down sand dunes I suppose. "Little Deserts" does have a good ring to it though.

Why quibble?  Woods are not wooden.  There is no tee box.  Par and bogey have morphed.  I don't see a problem.

In PGA school if you said "sand trap " they put a giant mouse trap in front of you until someone else said that term.  Now you know 

No, they don’t.

There is no Doug Sands listed in PGA members directory, maybe he was referring to the Potato Growers of America  school??

Nowhere in the rules of golf does it say, "sand trap"

When you find it,  please let me know.  

They're called "bunkers." Go look. You won't find a bunker referred to as sand traps.

I'll call them whatever I want.

I call them "flaws" in the course design that destroy my great round!

`When I use a word,' Humpty Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone, `it means just what I choose it to mean -- neither more nor less.'

`The question is,' said Alice, `whether you can make words mean so many different things.'

`The question is,' said Humpty Dumpty, `which is to be master - - that's all.'

`When I make a word do a lot of work like that,' said Humpty Dumpty, `I always pay it extra.'
