USGA Summary Points:Use of a plant growth regulator does not appear to have a significant effect on performance of fine fescues in a fairway trial. Hard fescue and slender creeping red fescue were present in mixtures that performed well under traffic stress. Hard fescue and sheep fescue were present in mixtures that performed well under acute drought stress. Snow mold and snow scald damage was minimal on golf course trials. Results from this project should assist in developing optimized mixtures for use on golf courses in the northern United States, ultimately leading to overall reduced inputs of water, fertilizer, and pesticides
