Trinity Forest fights weather to maintain links-style grasses
Geoff Shackelford gets the lowdown on the way Trinity Forest Golf Club of Dallas, Texas has made a links-style course by using special grass that mimics fescue.
Superintendent Kasey Kauff says “We were trying out different grasses and seeing what was gonna play most like a fescue. Firm, fast, bouncy on the ground game.”
Despite the weather, which is predicted to reach the 100s, Trinity Zoysia holds up. “We chose the right turfgrasses for the right area,” Kauff says. “We don’t have to baby these, we can stress them as much as we want and get the desired result”
