GOLF DIGEST: TRINITY FOREST IS PRESENTED WITH GOLF DIGEST’S 2018 GREEN STAR ENVIRONMENTAL AWARD (Type: articles)

The world changed with the Trinity Test on July 16, 1945. That day, the world’s first nuclear bomb was detonated at a test site in New Mexico, and the future has been clouded ever since.

We’re not sure how much the golf world will change when Trinity Forest Golf Club is unveiled to the world this May as the new host of the PGA Tour’s Byron Nelson Classic. But we are certain the course will have a far-reaching impact on those who see and play it. Enough impact that Golf Digest is awarding its 2018 Green Star award for outstanding environmental practices to Trinity Forest.

Golf Course Trades: AT&T Byron Nelson 50th Anniversary New Grass, Trinity Zoysia (Type: articles)

AT&T Byron Nelson 50th Anniversary New Grass, Trinity Zoysia, Named for New Course Location, Trinity Forest Golf Club

Sustainability, Environmental Stewardship Combine for Firm, Fast Surfaces with Lots of Ball Roll

 

It’s all new this year for the 50th Anniversary of the tournament in recent years known as the AT&T Byron Nelson. A new golf course location, Trinity Forest Golf Club in Dallas, serves as the new venue. A new grass is on the tees, fairways and green surrounds, named Trinity Zoysia for the club that was the first in the world to plant the sustainable grass wall-to-wall. Trinity Forests’ use of this grass highlights the club’s goal of environmental stewardship. Trinity Zoysia requires less water, less fertilizer than most other golf turf and the golf course is built on the site of a former landfill.

 

The tournament runs May 14-20, 2018, and PGA Tour players, as well as the television audience at home, get their first look at this links-style course designed by Bill Coore and former PGA Tour Pro, Ben Crenshaw. Golf Course Superintendent Kasey Kauff oversaw the grow-in of the golf course and said, if the weather is dry, he expects playing conditions to be fast, firm and challenging.
