Golf Course Installation: Okatie Creek Golf Course

Golf courses all over the country have been getting outfitted with new golf grass thanks to Modern Turf and their installation success on over 30 courses so far. One of the most recent converts, Okatie Creek, is the second of three golf courses in the Sun City community that Modern Turf has grassed with MiniVerde. This beautiful course features 15 lakes, which can present quite a challenge even to veteran golfers.

The course features the MiniVerde Ultradwarf Bermudagrass, which blends perfectly with the course’s pine groves and Carolina low country marshes. Okatie Creek is a wonderful place to play and watch golf. Located around some of South Carolina’s most beautiful golf resorts, this course is challenging in the best ways. Players often agree that Okatie Creek is both a fun and engaging course to play.

The new MiniVerde greens are a great upgrade to the course, and are much easier to maintain than their predecessors. The MiniVerde needs less water and pesticide treatments, and they can alleviate the stress of any maintenance budget. In the National Turfgrass Evaluation Program (NTEP) trials, MiniVerde has gotten top marks for many years, due to its famous fine leaf blades and high shoot density.
