George Fazio Course Undergoing Grass Replacement (January-March 2010)
Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort upgraded the grass on the award-winning George Fazio Golf Course. The TifDwarf Bermudagrass was replaced with a more shade-tolerant, state-of-the-art Diamond Zoysia grass, which promotes superior and consistent year-round playing conditions for golfers.
Diamond Zoysia, a warm-weather grass variety developed at Texas A&M, boasts excellent tolerance to low-light conditions, salty soil and high traffic. It retains its color throughout most of the year in many southern climates eliminating the necessity for fall cool season grass over-seed and the corresponding spring transition to warm season grass. These attributes make it an ideal choice for the George Fazio Course at Palmetto Dunes.
The new grass provides a more consistent experience across all 19 greens, (18 holes and 1 practice green), year-round. The grass conversion was completed mid-March 2010.
