PLAYERS Stadium: Celebration

A major renovation to the Stadium Course is on the horizon. The fairways, tees, and approaches are all going to be re-sodded with Celebration Bermuda. While out with the old turf and in with the new, there still remains a gift from the 2006 Renovation, our sand cap. A base layer of sand with a depth of 6-8 inches evenly spanning the entirety of the fairways to create internal drainage and lateral water flow. This played a vital role in draining the 10 inches of rainwater that mother nature provided the weekend before the 2013 PLAYERS. We are thankful to have this ground work in place and are looking forward to the grass conversion.
