Georgia is world renown for golf. River Sand makes sure Georgia’s courses stay beautiful with superior topdressing, golf bunker sand and divot sand! Golf course superintendents trust RSI with their topdressing, bunker, divot, and greensmix needs.
River Sand Incorporated offers a wide variety of products for use on and around the golf course. Building relationships over the years with golf course superintendents has given us insight into the needs of Atlanta golf courses extending north to Buford and even Clayton. River Sand Inc. offers many standard sand products, but we are always ready to design custom solutions that solve all your toughest turf or bunker issues.
Premium quality is always guaranteed, along with a competitive price.
River Sand owns and maintains a fleet of dump trucks in various sizes. Our single axle can deliver a few tons of bulk divot mix or river sand for a drainage project. Our tandem axle dump truck delivers a load of sand or soil for projects or stockpiling. Dumps trucks offer flexibility to get a large load into a smaller space (or small bin) or out on the course if needed to save time transporting. Tractor-trailers are the most popular choice for delivery to golf courses in areas such as Athens, Alpharetta, Flowery Branch, Canton, and Roswell. The delivery of bulk products to storage bins or within parking areas helps get the materials you need quickly and affordably. We also operate two types of specialty trucks. Our spreader truck operates like a top dresser and spreads the material upon delivery. Our pneumatic tanker can blow dry sand into your silo for storage.
Golf courses need a variety of sand and soil products to maintain fairways, tees, bunkers, and greens. The turf type, whether it be bermuda, zoysia, bentgrass, fescue, ryegrass or a combination, determines the need of each golf course. Our name may imply one type of sand, but that was just the start. We have worked with many superintendents throughout Georgia to develop the standard products that we offer and almost any other type of sand or blended bulk materials that meet a specific need. For example, we have two standard colors of green sand, but we have tested and made 20 different shades of green. Let us know what you need and we will get you the sand or bulk aggregate that you need for your golf course.
Greensmix, not to be confused with dyed-green sand that we offer, is a unique blend of sand that meets USGA criteria along with 5%, 10%, 15%, 20%, or any other percentage of peat. Peat types include sphagnum and reed-sedge, and can be sourced from many suppliers for specific qualities (i.e. Dakota Peat). River Sand’s greensmix has been used to build many new greens and renovate older golf greens. Our blending process is precise and efficient to maintain a quality, consistent greensmix sand.
Bunker sand is often what people think about when they think golf and sand. The aesthetics are often a unique part of the course. The bunkers are always a source of discussion. RSI offers golf bunker sand with the ideal particle size and shape for play. We remove fine particles that result in crusting. The angularity helps maintain stability of the bunker walls with optimal penetration characteristics. Color is usually a factor with bunker sand so we offer several different types and colors of golf bunker sand to fit all your needs or preferences.
Soil, Dirt, Gravel, and Mulch
River Sand is a great source for your topsoil, fill dirt, drainage and driveway gravel, and bulk mulch needs. We offer a ton of variety in any size load. You can trust that we know your industry better than other sources and the types of materials that work best. Our local stockpiles make it easy to deliver small or large quantities quickly to Gainesville, Athens, Alpharetta, Cumming, Johns Creek, and the rest of the metro Atlanta area.
Topdressing is both a process and a type of sand. One of the critical processes in maintaining a turf is topdressing. Topdressing involves placing a thin layer of sand on top and within the turf to relieve excessive thatch, level a surface, increase porosity, improve drainage, promote root growth, and improve the health of a turf grass. River Sand Inc.’s topdressing meets strict USGA standards. RSI also offers Atlanta golf courses topdressing that is both coarser, finer, and uniformly graded than USGA specs for specific applications. We can also blend topdressing sand with compost, profile or calcined clay, organics, humic acid, fulvic acid, humin, perlite, and peat.
Our ultradwarf topdressing is made specifically for high-density ultradwarf bermudagrasses, which are quickly becoming the turf of choice for Greater Atlanta golf courses. Our ultradwarf topdressing is finer than traditional topdressing, so it penetrates through the blades of finer ultradwarf grasses. We offer various color options from white, tan, and greens to blend into the turf for the light, frequent topdressing applications.
River Sand Inc.’s divot sand provides an immediate aesthetic improvement as well as a medium for turf to reestablish. Our green-dyed divot sand is 100% natural and non-toxic. Its long-lasting color is designed to stay on the sand, not your patrons. We also offer white, tan, and brown colored sand without any dye. Furthermore, we offer other blends according to your preferences and those golf course superintendents that have already shared their insights.
