Modern Turf Announce Installation at Renowned Monticello Golf Course in Savannah Lakes

Rembert, South Carolina – December 5, 2012 – Modern Turf, Inc., the preeminent, South Carolina-based turfgrass production company, announced it has completed installation of its MiniVerde Ultradwarf Bermudagrass turf at the renowned Monticello Golf Course in Savannah Lakes, South Carolina.

The 7,032-yard, par-72 course is well known to many golfers as home of the annual Savannah Lakes Village Classic, one of the premier stops on The National Golf Association’s Pro Golf Tour. Hans Kerfoot, president of Modern Turf said, “It is an honor to be a part of the greens renovation for Monticello, a beautiful course with incredible water features. A course of this stature deserves to have the best putting surfaces available, and MiniVerde Ultradwarf Bermudagrass is simply the number one turf in golf right now.”

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.

In a statement to Savannah Lakes residents and club members, Monticello Golf Course Superintendent James Hunt said, “The conversion to an Ultradwarf Bermudagrass is the best option to meet long-term needs on the Monticello Golf Course. This grass is very hardy, enough so that it can withstand the hot, humid summers that occur frequently in this area; and it can withstand a somewhat cold winter as has been seen in McCormick. “

Said Kerfoot, “To undertake a total greens replacement project takes vision, patience and commitment from members and management alike. The men and women of Savannah Lakes recognize that they now have a superior quality turf that will ensure terrific play for years to come.”
