Topdressing with Black Sand

A topdressing application of black sand was applied to THE PLAYERS Stadium Course greens this week to aid in ball roll and help the soil retain heat. Soil temperatures are critical this time of year as the turf is beginning to break dormancy from the cold temperatures this winter.
 The black sand was put out with a Lesco rotary spreader.
The rate was set at 1.5 tons of sand per acre.
