USGA Summary Points:In 2016, several new or experimental bermudagrasses again produced turf quality equal to or better than established standards 'Tifdwarf', 'Tifeagle' and 'Mini-Verde'. Several zoysia entries also performed very well in 2016, producing turf quality rivaling the best bermuda entries. The two seashore paspalum entries performed similarly in 2016, however, 'UGA 1743' did demonstrate better dollar spot tolerance than 'SeaDwarf'. Data from 2017 did not show a significant increase in ball roll, with only a few bermuda entries demonstrating ball roll of least 100 inches at one location under this medium maintenance regime. Ball roll distances for some seashore paspalum and zoysia entries did increase in 2016, as ball roll measurements of 100 inches were noted in a few instances in Tucson, AZ and the Richmond, VA sites.
