Tall fescue has been emerging in popularity over the last several decades. In more recent years its role as a drought resistant, lower maintenance turf has played a big part in the use of this species. We've witnessed the expansion of tall fescue north to Minnesota and south as far as Texas, and for good reason. Improved turf-type varieties of tall fescue exhibit a resilience unsurpassed by many other turfgrasses in a multitude of environments. In this 60-minute webinar presented by the Oregon Tall Fescue Commission, Sam Bauer discusses the opportunities and limitations of tall fescue as a turf for golf courses. Listen in to get tips on using this turf type at your facility.
