Survey - cool-season putting greens

Calling all cool-season putting green managers!!! Real-world feedback needed….

We are following up on an article we published in Golf Course Management Magazine last fall titled “An economic comparison of creeping bentgrass and annual bluegrass maintenance practices”. We are seeking some “real-world” feedback regarding current grass species, grass species preferences and common maintenance practices.

This electronic survey (which will only take about 5 minutes of your time) asks some questions about your standard cultural practices (mowing, hand-watering, coring/grooming, etc.) as well as PGR and wetting agent use.

Probably the most difficult part will be trying to figure out how many days per year you typically single mow, double cut, roll and hand-water.  Please give this survey some strong consideration and we look forward to generating some quality results and sharing those with the industry later this year.

A link to the survey can be found at

As always, thanks for your time and efforts….

Thanks for this! I'm doing a bit of research because I'm planning to have a putting green installed in my backyard. Right now, I'm using to practice, but I'm sure a putting green would improve my game a lot more.
