Material Solutions for Better Play

Athletes pride themselves in striving for excellence. They push themselves to top performance levels, and hold themselves to the highest standards. It’s only fair that we do the same by supporting them with the highest-quality sand.

Covia works hard so your teams, families, and friends can play hard. We’ll take care of the field, so athletes can focus on victory.

Every Course, Any Level


Clean, pure white sand offers championship-level performance and enduring aesthetics in golf course bunkers, topdressing and construction, helping to attract new members and keep players coming back time and time again. Nearly half of the top 100 golf courses in the United States rely on Covia’s BESTSAND™ bunker sand to improve playability and provide consistent performance day to day, bunker to bunker.

Set. Spike. Score.


A good volleyball court should play like the beach (or better) with clean, off-white, angular volleyball sand to give athletes secure footing, greater confidence, and improved safety. Our BESTSAND™ VB for volleyball courts drains well and resists both compacting and crusting to give athletes the firm footing they need for the perfect serve or spike while keeping court maintenance to a minimum.

Covia offers BESTSAND™ EQ: fully washed, high-purity subangular silica sand with the perfect combination of drainage and water retention to reduce dust and offer greater firmness compared with other equestrian options, helping to maximize the comfort of the horses and minimize false steps.
