Put Your Bentgrass Out of Its Misery! 3 Reasons to Replace Your Putting Green Grass with No-Till Ultradwarf

The key consideration with putting green grass is putting quality. Major golf courses around the world are ripping out their Bentgrass putting greens and replacing them with Ultradwarf putting grass greens.

Why? Simple: a superior putting environment. Why the change? The new varieties of Ultradwarf have finally received enough work experience for Superintendents to understand how they grow and how to keep them in prime shape.

Ultradwarf putting green grass is easier to maintain during the winter months. During the offseason there is no reason that golfers cannot improve their putting game. Here are a few benefits of Ultradwarf:

• Reduction or elimination of transition periods
• Improved putting quality
• Ease of maintenance
• Holds up well to wear and play

Reduction of transition periods occurs because of the winter maintenance of Ultradwarf grass. There is no longer a need to wait for the effects of overseeding to take place. The green is ready sooner. The extended growing season allows the green to be playable longer, which leads to improved putting quality. Remember, Ultradwarf varieties require less maintenance than Bentgrass. And the longer growing season allows the green to be played longer, even during the winter months. The benefit is more play with less exposed areas of soil.
