Sod farm revitalizes a classic golf course.

Golf Course Installation: Riverbend Golf Course

The golf course at River Bend Country Club offers an exciting round of golf for any enthusiast, professional and amateur alike. No matter your skill level, the quality of the fairway will not go unnoticed, as a recent sod farm installation has improved several aspects of the course. With 18 new fairways and greens at USGA specifications, River Bend is in fabulous shape and ready to impress. This golf course has been voted Simply the Best Golf Course in New Bern for seven years running, and that tradition should continue thanks to recent improvements.

The new MiniVerde greens that Modern Turf has installed are extremely popular. As the facilities continue to make improvements, the new greens are definitely one of the best investments so far. They provide smoother, faster putting surfaces and this level of quality is very noticeable, as is the incredible recovery time of the turf. Golf sod can take a beating and bounce back for optimum playing conditions.

The MiniVerde species of grass requires less water and fewer chemical treatments than other turf grass varieties. The diminished cost associated with caring for the greens will improve River Bend’s profits for many years to come. It also has a consistent high shoot density and fine leaf blades, both of which have resulted in high rankings in the National Turfgrass Evaluation Program (NTEP) trials for many years.
