Q: Why is the driving range turf so yellow?
A: Frost and cold temperatures have caused the kikuyugrass to go into dormancy. "Kikuyu" is a warm season grass, best known from its presence at golf courses in Southern California. But it actually grows quite well here. It can be wiry and problematic in rough and around greens, but works well in low maintenance areas like our driving range. Look for a green up of the kikuyu around Feb. - March.
