USGA Summary Points:Drought and dollar spot were the most common detractors of turf quality in 2017, and both disproportionately affected creeping bentgrass compared to other species. Chlorothalonil applied at the first sign of dollar spot infection essentially eliminated disease development in creeping bentgrass and Kentucky bluegrass, and only six to eight applications were required on average. Creeping bentgrass that did not receive fungicide applications did not average acceptable quality over 2017, regardless of other factors. Kentucky bluegrass provided acceptable quality over a range of management scenarios, and can persist in input-limited conditions if transient quality reductions during drought or severe dollar spot infestation are acceptable. Buffalograss expenditures were approximately half of other species under the most intense management level. Buffalograss was less affected by input-limited management than other species. Our cost analysis is intended only to compare expenditures among species and management scenarios under our experimental conditions, and to quantify general differences for a consumer survey next year. Cost per acre estimates are not intended to predict or suggest the resources needed to manage golf course fairways of species in our study.
