Driving Range Tee Grass Trial Update

On May 1, 2012 we posted a blog on the grass trials we are doing on the lower driving range tee. This post can be found here: Driving Range Tee Grass Trial

Wanted to share some photos updating everyone on the progress of this trial. Please remember, these grasses do best in warm weather (over 80 degrees) so we are not in a period of high growth for these grasses.. Also, the Patriot and Latitude bermudagrass varieties were sodded (they cannot be seeded) while the Riveria was seeded.

Patriot Bermudagrass

Latitude Bermudagrass

Riveria Bermudagrass
So far I like the color and texture of the Latitude Bermudagrass. However, the real test will come in June when balls are hit from these areas and we can determine how long it will take divots to recover during the heat of the summer.
