Common Sense-Seminar for Golf Owners: Types of Turf in the Golf Course
June 22, 2021
The northern fairway grass species are: tall fescue, bluegrass, perennial ryegrass, zoysia or mixed lawns, greens and tees. General use: creeping bentgrass, in the south generally: bermudagrass, green grass , Taiwan grass, etc.
For the south bank of the Yangtze River (in the broad sense of the southern region), the turf grass used for the greens of golf courses is generally bermudagrass, and occasionally it can be used to cut bentgrass, but it is a problem in summer. Zoysia is often used in fairways and high grass areas. The above are just species. There are many species under each species. The color and luster and other traits are different between species. The stadiums in Zhejiang are all bermudagrass. Tall fescue also has certain adaptability in the south.
The long grass area can also be subdivided into primary tall grass and secondary tall grass, primary tall grass, grass seed and fairway items, but the cutting height is different, the secondary tall grass, grass seed and fairway are different, and they are often classified as non-conservation areas. .
Elementary high grass and fairway can be converted to each other by adjusting the cutting height. Many courses will use this conversion to change the obstacles and difficulty of the fairway and enhance the fun.
