The Southern United States house some of the world’s most beautiful golf courses. But just because a course is green, does not mean they’re all using the same turf. In Florida, one of the golf capitals of the U.S, there’s a special type of grass that tends to be a matter of contention when it comes to golf courses maintenance.

 

Native to the Gulf of Mexico area, the West Indies, and Western Africa and found throughout southern and coastal regions of the United States, in the early 1890s, St. Augustine grass became popular in Florida, hence its namesake after the city of St. Augustine.
