Hello nature lover.....!

The improved Bermuda grass Seed varieties; Riviera, Yukon and Princess 77 are suitable for use on home putting greens. These bermuda grass varieties are NOT recommended for putting green use on commercial golf course greens. They can be used for home putting greens IF it is understood that ball travel will be different than when playing on a commercial Bermuda golf course green. That said, these varieties DO OFFER the best choice in a seeded home putting green using a Bermuda seed.

Princess77 Bermuda Grass mowed at 1/4"

Princess 77, Yukon and Riviera are FAIRWAY quality grasses… when used on greens (mowed 3/8 and below) they do NOT produce a smooth putting surface such as found with the latest Hybrid Bermudas. The ball travel tends to bounce or be off “true” going to right or left in travel.

WHAT DO GOLF COURSES USE ON GREENS?

For best putting greens you need to use an improved “green quality” grass such as Tifdwarf, Tifgreen, etc. All green quality grasses can only be plugged, sprigged, or sodded (no seeds). All golf course use "HYBRID SOD VARIETIES" on their greens. They do use some of the seeded varieties on fairways, but they do NOT use seeded varieties for greens. It will work (seed on a green), but only where the individual understands it will provide a “less than normal” putting surface. – An average green size is 5000 sq. ft. on most golf courses. Contact a local sodding company for "hybrid bermuda grass".

Note that NONE of the seeded varieties are considered green quality at this time. Bermuda Tif-419 is also NOT a good choice for greens, as it also is considered by turf managers to be a fairway quality grass. All modern greens are generally mowed daily to provide a uniform grass surface. Occasionally the course may skip one day of mowing (such as on Monday), but it is still mowed 6 days a week. Other management practices such as fertilization and insect / disease control are based on local needs and usage.

Bermuda Grass Seed For Golf Fairway Use

We sell several products that are considered Fairway quality greens.
Fairways are generally maintained at 1/2 +/- inches.

The Seeded fairway varieties are:

High Quality Bermuda Grass:

  • Princess 77 (Top of line / Excellent proven quality – Fine leaves)
  • Rivera Bermuda
  • Yukon Bermuda

Mid Range Quality Bermuda Grass:

  • Triangle Blend - (Second best choice… not quite as fine a leaves / more economical) – Blend of 3 fairway quality varieties.
  • Mohawk - (Best where salinity may be an issue).
  • La Prima Blend (Usually Paloma & SR-9554)

Other varieties for where price / cost over quality is more important can also be used for fairways. They will however generally not be as dense or nice as the ones above.

If you want the finest textured fairways in a seeded Bermuda grass – Riviera, Yukon or Princess 77 are the preferred choices. In areas where mowing will be above 1” there is not much noticeable difference between Princess and the other varieties. Triangle Blend makes a good choice where cost of establishment is more important. Triangle Bermuda costs less than a fine bladed Bermuda grass but is slightly wider and less dense. As mowing levels move below 1/2 inch, Princess 77 tends to look better than the other varieties.
