Turf farms and golf course owners have a symbiotic relationship. The heavily trafficked greens, fairways, and roughs expertly display the resilience and richness of our Georgia-grown sod, providing members and guests with a springy grass playing field that enriches the golfing experience. Course management specialists work tirelessly to trim, fertilize, and water each section of turf, ensuring the golf course is healthy and groomed for players. The type of sod golf courses install depends on a variety of factors: climate, texture, and upkeep. But despite the benefits of Bermuda roughs, fescue fairways, and Perennial Ryegrass tee boxes, more and more golf course management teams are choosing Zoysia grass.
Teeing-Off on Zoysia
Georgia-grown Zoysia sod is a perennial favorite for golf courses. The dense, springy leaves provide golf balls with lift, often negating the need for a tee. Zoysia turfgrass is adaptable: many golf courses install zoysia on fairways, greens, and roughs. Zoysia also thrives in a variety of climates, making it ideal for the humid summers of the South or the more temperate seasons in the Northeast and Midwest. Course landscapers love Zoysia because of its heat tolerance and drought resistance. Zoysia grass needs less water and fertilizer than other turfgrasses favored by public courses and clubs, making Atlanta Zoysia sod an easy choice for many golf courses.
NG Turf calls Zeon Zoysia “the barefoot grass” because of its plush, dense, springy texture. We’re not the only ones to notice. Zoysia is slated to make an appearance at the 2016 Olympic Golf Course in Rio de Janeiro. Golf course management experts chose Zoysia because of its durability, flexible blades, and environmental impact. Zeon Zoysia resists thatch buildup and requires little water or fertilizer. The landscapers installing this Olympic sod hope to inspire golf courses around the world to switch to Zoysia turfgrass.
Zoysia sod can be installed during its growing or its dormant season. NG Turf grows 4 premiere varieties of Zoysia turfgrass, including Zeon Zoysia. Call us for more information on buying Atlanta sod.
