Throughout the year as the weather allows, we will take every advantage to lightly topdress the South Course fairways.  There is little impact on play since we time the topdressing on Mondays when the course is closed.  Also, the sand is light enough that after it has been brushed in, it may not even be noticed.  This benefits playing conditions by creating a more firm and smoother playing surface.  Sand topdressing also has significant agronomic benefits by that it helps dilute thatch and also helps build up a more desirable sand profile.  Below are pictures from our most recent sand topdressing on April 30.
