Use Top Dressing Sand for a Smooth Golf Game

Golfers want perfect greens so that they can show off their golf skills.  The green shouldn’t be too soft or too hard, too wet or too dry.  It takes commitment and hard work to keep the correct balance on the greens so that golfers have a firm, smooth, resilient surface for golfing.  

Top Dressing Sand

Since golf courses are made of living material, as the grass grows the surface changes.  A great golf course isn’t finished after the initial construction.  Continued maintenance is required to keep the course looking great.  As the grass grows, it produces a large root mass.  What is referred to as thatch is this layer of living and dead roots, crowns, rhizomes, stolons, and organic debris that form between the green and soil.  To prevent too much accumulation of this thatch layer, topdressing sand is layered on the green.  The topdressing sand mixes with the organic layer to promote air and water movement into the soil, which improves degradation of the organic material.  Too much thatch can hold water and make the golf course soggy.
