Abstract/Contents:"Many areas of the Mediterranean climate combine mild winters with drought and high temperatures during summer, representing a transition zone for turfgrasses (DUNN AND DIESBURG, 2004). While hybrid and seeded bermudagrass cultivars are currently adopted on golf fairways in Italy, the use of dwarf cultivars of Cynodon on greens still needs to be accepted. A major obstacle for their diffusion in Italy is the lack of information on their establishment, playing quality and winter management. As to winter management and playing quality, previous research carried out in Italy (VOLTERRANI et al., 2009) indicated that Lolium perenne and Festuca rubra are suitable for winter overseeding nonetheless the best playing quality (green speed) was recorded on the non overseeded surface. This means that dormant bermudagrass greens could be acceptable for use during winter assumed the lack of green colour is tolerated. In other countries turf painting is becoming increasingly popular for winter management of dormant putting greens (BRISCOE et al., 2010). With the aim of facilitating the use of dwarf bermudagrass in Italy, this trial had the object to monitor the establishment of Miniverde bermudagrass at three different latitudes and to assess at the northern one whether the application of turf paint could provide an acceptable green color of the dormant turf."
