Abstract/Contents:"Golf course superintendents in Minnesota and other temperate climates are shifting toward the use of fine fescues in roughs and out-of-play areas to reduce management inputs and enhance course aesthetics. This shift has raised many questions about the proper establishment and management of these areas. Weed control, biomass removal, and playability are challenges associated with unmown roughs. The objective of this project was to determine the optimum seeding rates and biomass removal timings for maximum weed suppression, golf ball visibility, and quality of no-mow fine fescue. Establishment of 'Beacon' hard fescue (Festuca brevipila) was seed in July of 2017 at either 1, 2, or 3 pure live seed per cm2 at the University of Minnesota in Saint Paul and Rush Creek Golf Club in Maple Grove, Minnesota in a 3 x 4 factorial design with four replications. Biomass was removed by mowing and then removing clippings. Mowing timing treatments (spring, fall, spring and fall, and no mowing) and data collection began in 2018. Data collected involved fine fescue coverage via grid counts, total biomass at mowing, culm density, quality and lodging ratings, and golf ball visibility via image analysis. First year results indicate that seeding rate influences culm density and lodging, and fall biomass was a significant predictor of lodging visual ratings. Results from this project will clarify fine fescue rough establishment and management strategies."
