Abstract

Golf course fairways often are kept at a height of less than one-inch of cut, and should have a turfgrass that will recover from a divot. Creeping bentgrass (Agrostis stolonifera L.) often is used on golf course fairways due to the ability of the turfgrass to tolerate a low height of cut and quick recovery from divots. However, these grasses grow aggressively by stolons and can produce a large amount of organic matter quickly. Slow drainage, a soft playing surface, unsightly mower scalp, and a home to many pests are all problems caused by excess organic matter.
