Abstract/Contents:Sand banding has been around for over 30 years, and until recently limited to sport field management. Increased pressure for firm fast golf courses from tee to green has promoted some superintendents to experiment with the application of fairway sand banding as part of a leading edge golf course management program. At first glance, sand banding may appear to be a radical solution to the elusive problem - firm fast playing conditions in all weather and seasons. Upon closer inspection, sand banding offers many significant benefits over current cultural programs.
