MiniVerde Ultradwarf installation unveiled at General’s Retreat - Hermitage Golf Course

Modern Turf

Maximum Golf voted Old Hickory, TN’s Hermitage Golf Course one of the 100 best bargain golf courses in the United States. Golf for Women was equally enthusiastic, awarding it a place on their list of 50 best courses for women. And that was before this top-rated public course in Tennessee made the switch over to MiniVerde Ultradwarf bermudagrass.

PGA Director of Golf, Jim Verson said he and his superintendent chose MiniVerde both for how much golfers love to play on it and also for its reputation for being low-maintenance and long-lasting. Not only is this golf grass beautiful to look at, it’s also good for any club’s bottom line because it requires less work and fewer chemicals to stay healthy.

General’s Retreat was built in 1986 and designed by Gary Roger Baird. The Hermitage Golf Course was the host of the Sara Lee Classic from 1988 – 1999. The Hermitage is a favorite golf outing for locals and for tourists visiting Nashville or the home of President Andrew Jackson, The Hermitage, in Old Hickory.

This lovely Nashville area course is situated along the Cumberland River and is an enjoyable play for golfers of every skill level. Frequent player discounts are available with a free FREEquent Player Club membership. You’ll receive a complimentary round after every four full-priced rounds in one calendar year.

Once you’ve played the new MiniVerde greens at General’s Retreat, you may want to contact the superintendent at your home course with the golf turf pros at ModernTurf to see whether MiniVerde would be a good fit for your course, too.
