Covering ultradwarf bermudagrass putting greens reduces winter injury; however, installing covers takes a considerable amount of effort and often results in temporary course closures. To reduce the need for covering, researchers at the University of Arkansas investigated temperature thresholds used to predict the need for covers – their results could help golf courses save time and money. Ultradwarf bermudagrass putting greens are typically covered during the winter in the transition zone to prevent injury from low temperature exposure.
