Modern Turf is the premier South Carolina turf producer recently selected by many of the nation's top golf courses to replace their bentgrass with MiniVerde.

The Ben Geren Golf Course is known throughout Arkansas as one of the state's premier public golf courses. Originally covered in SR 10-20 bentgrass, the front nine have now been grassed with sleek, new MiniVerde, which gives a dramatic change to the aesthetics and offers a superior, high quality surface that is offers something for everyone. Renovation of the back nine is scheduled to be completed next year. MiniVerde not only looks healthy and slick, it is also easier to care for and requires less pesticide usage, aeration and watering. MiniVerde has had consistently high rankings in the National Turfgrass Evaluation Program (NTEP) trials for many years.

Jay Randolph of Ben Geren Golf Course said, "Living in the South means extremely hot summers. We are excited to now have turf that is heat tolerant and just does better all-around in the summer weather. It is also extremely helpful that the MiniVerde requires less manpower and maintenance. The choice of MiniVerde was a huge success at Ben Geren." Ben Geren offers challenging holes that feature a pleasing mix of woods and water.
