Bentgrass Golf Course

ADAPTATION: Cool season areas such as the northeastern U.S. and Temperate Zone with careful management. The only usage for bent grass in the south is on closely managed golf greens.

Bent grass grows best in the high moisture parts of the northern USA and can extend into the transitional USA area with adequate irrigation on fertile soils. This grass species forms a thick dense turf that can be closely mown. Bent Grass is used for high maintenance luxury lawns and on golf courses fairways and tees.

Bentgrass has some salt tolerance and it is planted along coastlines of the upper Pacific and Atlantic oceans. Bent grasses are insect and disease prone, especially in areas that are below the cooler northern USA, thus requiring close supervision for these problems.

Adaptation Map For Creeping BentgrassCreeping Bentgrass Adaptation Map

Please find below an adaptation map for creeping bentgrass.  Please note that the Climatic zones are 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7. 8, 9, and 10. BUT Bentgrass is not adaptable for all areas within each climatic zone.

It would be advisable to check with your local Agricultural Extension Office and to note that use of bentgrass in the more southern areas is almost exclusively on golf courses.

Improved Bent Grass Varieties Have Greater Adaptation & Resistance to Disease & Insects

With the advent of improved creeping bentgrass cultivars such as Penncross and 13M we are now seeing bentgrass with larger areas of adaptation - Climatic Zones: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 (may not be adaptable to all areas within each zone). These improved varieties also offer higher resistance to disease and insects. See the tech sheets for Penncross Bentgrass and for 13M Bentgrass (PDF format) or visit our online store Seedland.com to buy or read more on these bentgrass varieties.

BentgrassBentgrass & Aeration

Bentgrasses require adequate air circulation to properly grow. This is why you often see fans located on golf greens so as to move air across the grass. Some newer methods of "air-ating" the grass involve blowing air into the soil drain fields when the water drainage capability is not needed. Bent grass will grow well even in high shade situations (50-60% shade tolerance) as long as the air and drainage is adequate.
