Abstract/Contents:"Creeping bentgrass provides a premier surface for golf course putting greens. A preference for this species and increasing demands by the public for quality sports turf species have fueled the expansion of creeping bentgrass use throughout the deep South. Golf greens in the upper-southeastern and arid-southwestern United States are increasingly being converted to creeping bentgrass, although this is outside the natural adaption range for creeping bentgrass, because creeping bentgrass is unparalleled for putting quality (1). The overall use of creeping bentgrass has increased for two major reasons: the popularity of the game of golf and the use of bentgrass on fairways in the northern United States (4). The bentgrasses are receiving a great deal of interest in all areas of the north where it is the preferred turf for golf course greens, tees, and fairways. The increased usage outside the cool-season turfgrass range has created a great demand for more heat-stress resistant cultivars for use in these less than optimum temperature zones. A number of new cultivars have been released in the past several years. Unfortunately, there are few field research facilities to adequately assess these cool-season turfgrasses for adaptation to warm-humid climates when maintained as putting green turf. The objectives of this study were to 1) construct a high-sand root zone putting green to use for evaluating turfgrass species adapted to putting green management and 2) determine the performance of twelve creeping bentgrasses maintained as putting green turf in College Station, Texas."
