The project was initiated to convert an existing research putting green to a 007 creeping bentgrass (Agrostis stolonifera) fairway. The previous green was attached to an adjacent fairway, which made it difficult to perform routine maintenance practices. With the addition of the A-4 creeping bentgrass green in the fall of 2011, the square footage of greens height bentgrass would not be affected by the conversion.
