Happy Golfers Equals Happy Golf Course Superintendents: How the Right Putting Green Grass Can Keep Everyone Happy

Golf turf and other sod products are important parts of any golfer’s experience. When the putting green isn’t up to standard, golfers are bound to be disappointed in the overall experience.

Grass needs to facilitate player shots, not interfere with the playability of any course. Greens-keepers can improve their own maintenance experience as well as the play action of others if they invest in the best putting green turf.

Bent grass is popular for the fineness of its blades, but it can be more difficult to maintain than other, sparser types of grass. Fine blades make it easier for short-range shots to reach their destination and maintain accuracy.

Blue grass is an extremely popular variety of bent grass, but it has been notoriously difficult to take root. It’s maintained popularity for the vibrancy of its color, but requires regular fertilization, mowing, and watering. A needy grass may look impressive, but drive greens-keepers to the brink of patience.

If you’re looking for a happy medium between aesthetic and maintenance, colonial bent grass is a good option. It is somewhat more self-sufficient than its siblings, while still achieving a beautiful appearance.
