Modern Turf Announce Installation at North Carolina’s Pine Hollow 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 at Pine Hollow Golf Club in Clayton, North Carolina.

The par-71, 6,333-yard Pine Hollow Golf Course was designed by legendary golf architects Maurice Brackett and Bob Moore. It opened to great acclaim in 1968 and has been a state treasure ever since.

Hank Kerfoot, President of Modern Turf, Inc., said, “Our firm has extensive experience with golf courses in North Carolina, so we were excited to bring our experience to Pine Hollow. Heat, humidity, irrigation, pesticides and fungicides are just a handful of the challenges facing courses today. It used to be that traditional bentgrass was adequate. In the past few years we have realized MiniVerde Ultradwarf Bermudagrass is the superior choice.”

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.

Added Kerfoot, “MiniVerde Ultradwarf Bermudagrass is tolerant of heat and drought, much more wear-resistant than older turfs, and able to absorb more of the North Carolina rains. It’s our distinct pleasure to have helped them in this conversion, and we look forward to feedback from the golfing community.”
