Maggie Reiter, University of California, discusses the steps golf course managers can take to achieve functional and playable naturalized areas with fine fescue grasses. In this 90-minute webinar presented by the Fine Fescue Commission, Reiter covers research conducted on these systems, comparison of fine fescues to other cool-season grass options, approaches for establishment from seed, and strategies for an integrated weed management program. Case studies are presented from the Western USA. Reiter also discusses the idea of adaptive management—making adjustments as conditions change—in terms of natural area management on golf courses.
