Modern Turf Announce Insallation at South Carolina’s Lancaster Golf Club

Rembert, South Carolina – December 5, 2012 – Modern Turf, Inc., the preeminent, South Carolina-based turfgrass production company, announced installation of its Miniverde Ultradwarf Bermudagrass turf for the newly redesigned eighteen-hole golf course at Lancaster Golf Club in Lancaster, South Carolina.

Located between Charlotte, North Carolina, and Columbia, South Carolina, Lancaster Golf Club features a Par 72, 6538-yard, semi-private course. The Club first opened in 1939.

Hank Kerfoot, President of Modern Turf, Inc., said, “As with many of the classic, historic courses of the South, Lancaster was the perfect candidate for greens renovation. South Carolina’s well-known heat and humidity are no friends to traditional, bent grass greens. Luckily, the MiniVerde Ultradwarf Bermudagrass is designed for both durability and smooth play.”

The MiniVerde Ultradwarf Bermudagrass produces deep roots and is characterized by fine leaf blades, short internodes and high shoot density. MiniVerde has been the top-rated Bermudagrass in the National Turfgrass Evaluation Program (NTEP) trials for the past several years.

Speaking to Carolina Golf Journal, Gene Roper, Lancaster’s Director of Golf, said, ““We changed to MiniVerde because we feel in this area it is a much better grass for our greens, particularly with the extreme heat that we get in the summer.” He added, “MiniVerde makes an excellent putting surface year round.”
