The rough should be a low-maintenance zone – an area of the course that blends into the surrounding countryside without slowing play. By choosing the right species and mixtures, you could also add to the biodiversity of your course and the local environment.
Sowing rough grasses that contrast strongly with the fairway helps players plan their route from tee to green.
For semi-rough, tall fescue is an option, although greenkeepers often use the fairway mixture. For wild rough, you could think about forage varieties. But the most reliable option by far is our popular Golfmaster mixture. We also recommend the Johnsons Sports Seed mixture.
