At East Potomac Golf Course, we have converted all our fairways and tees to Bermuda grass. This hardy grass is capable of sustaining extreme heat, sun and drought. Also, our Bermuda turf is capable of living on smaller quantities of water!
The transition is part of our commitment to being environmentally conscious and to improve our quality of play. Bermuda is an extra tough variant of turf species, able to be mowed close to the ground and withstand high levels of foot and cart traffic.
In the winter months, the Bermuda will turn into a tan shade as temperatures drop and return to green in the spring. The fairways will firm up in the cold, offering a new challenge for golfers. We hope you enjoy this upgrade to our golf courses at East Potomac!
