Abstract/Contents:"Bermudagrass and zoysiagrass are the most popular species for golf course tees and fairways in Arkansas. Utilizing species and cultivars that have faster divot recovery will improve playing conditions on golf courses. Five of the most common cultivars of bermudagrass and seven of the most common cultivars of zoysiagrass grown in Arkansas were devoted to evaluate the time necessary for 50% recovery. Riviera, Princess-77, Palisades, El Toro and Diamond had the fastest divot recoveries while Zorro, Tifway, Patriot, Meyer, Tifsport, Cavalier, and Zenith had the slowest recoveries. These results, which are that some zoysiagrass cultivars have divot recovery similar to bermudagrass, are consistent with the findings of previous research of divot recoveries of bermudagrass or zoysiagrass in separate field studies. The findings of this research will ultimately help golf course superintendents reduce the costs associated with maintaining golf course fairways or tees as well as improve the playability of the golf course."
