The fairway surface is always under pressure, especially in the driving zone. It has to be robust, but it shouldn't pose a maintenance burden. Luckily modern cultivars grow more slowly than traditional mixtures. They give you the hard-wearing surface you need, without the need for constant mowing. They cut your costs and reduce your carbon emissions.
When choosing grass for a fairway, look for the densest varieties. It's worth thinking about red-thread tolerance too because that makes your fairway easier to maintain.
For high-traffic areas sow grasses with good wear-tolerance. And for all-round performance, our Golfmaster mixture produces an exceptional fairway. We also recommend the Johnsons Sports Seed mixture.
