Abstract/Contents:"Twelve creeping bentgrasses, one rough stalk bluegrass (Poa trivialis) and one chewings fescue were compared for quality ratings while being maintained at putting green mowing heights. In year one of this trial, Poa supina was also rated but was eliminated in year two due to its inability to withstand the low mowing height. The rough stalk bluegrass and chewings fescue were rated for the year but had significantly lower ratings than did the bentgrasses. Of the bentgrasses, 18th Green had the best overall ratings followed by Providence, ProCup, Penneagle, Putter and Penncross."
