The Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA), United States Golf Association Green Section (USGA), and the National Turfgrass Evaluation Program (NTEP) agreed to revitalize on-site testing of turfgrass on golf courses, particularly on putting greens. This project conducted evaluations of new bentgrass and bermudagrass on USGA specification putting greens constructed at golf courses across the country. This on-site testing program was designed to provide scientific information of a more applied nature about putting green turfgrass performance.
With test sites in Alabama, Arizona, California, Florida and Texas, the NTEP Trial ranked MiniVerde® Bermuda grass variety 'P-18' as the top bermudagrass.
