Myrtle Beach Golf Investments Avoid Winterkill

Modified date: February 17, 2019

Myrtle Beach Golf Invest in Green Covers

Popular Myrtle Beach Golf courses have taken action with critical steps in preventing last years winterkill damage of courses. Winterkill is a term used to describe grass that is damaged or killed by harsh winter conditions. It affects warm-season grasses, and warm-weather Bermuda is the predominant turf on greens, tees, fairways and roughs in the Carolinas. Only a few of the Myrtle Beach courses had course covers last spring to protect greens from extreme cold and had survived last years harsh winter. Those courses include Prestwick Country Club, Tidewater Golf & Plantation and The Dunes Golf and Beach Club.

And even though last years unusual weather conditions led to course weather damage, rare in a region with an average temperature of 72.2 degrees; important changes have been made in an effort to avoid those same problems caused by last years weather conditions.

Top Myrtle Beach Courses that have invested in major update to prevent any weather related issues:

  • Tradition and Pinehills have replaced their Tifdwarf Bermuda greens with ultradwarf Bermudagrass.
  • Fescue grass was added in areas of rough at Myrtlewood to complement the existing mounding.
  • Glen Dornoch replaced Champion ultradwarf Bermuda greens in place of its old TifDwarf.
  • Grand Dunes, Kings North, TPC, World Tour, Pawleys Plantation have invested in covers to protect greens from extreme cold.
  • Panther’s Run updated course greens from MiniVerde to TifEagle ultradwarf Bermuda.
