PLAYERS Stadium: Greens Topdressing

Last week on PLAYERS Stadium, the agronomy team lightly topdressed all greens with a green topdressing sand. We switch to green and then black starting in the fall. Colored sands absorb more sunlight and heat. They are also more aesthetically pleasing during our peak golfing season. After topdressing, the sand was brushed in using push brooms and then watered. This assures as much sand-to-soil contact as possible.
