Correct Grasses for the Golf Course


Correct Grasses for the Golf Course

The main types of warm season grass that are suitable for here in Viet Nam are Bermuda, Paspalum & Zoysia.

Selecting the correct grass is the most important thing, as there is no perfect grass for all situations. Also being supplied with pure grass is very important, as many golf courses have become contaminated / overcome with other grasses in time. As well, some courses might have an undesirable grass on them before the earthworks take place & this undesirable grass might be moved around the course whilst the bulk earthworks are taking place.
