Topdressing With Black Sand

Topdressing fairways, tees, and approaches for THE PLAYERS Championship creates a smooth and even playing surface for the professionals.  The black sand used helps increase the soil temperature during winter months which creates greener, lusher fairways. The fairways and tees were topdressed with Dakota Turf Tenders and the approaches were done by walk behind Turfco Mete-R-Matics.
