Demonstration Putting Green

The Demonstration Putting Green is located next to the Plant Science Laboratory and Greenhouse on the UTM Teaching and Demonstration Farm. This putting green is built to USGA specifications:

  • Herringbone-style drainage,
  • Pea-gravel base (4-inch layer),
  • Compatible sand layer (12-inch layer),
  • Sand layer is an 85:15 sand:peat mixture.

The putting green is planted in hybrid Bermudagrass turf. The Demonstration Putting Green is managed daily with currently accepted best management practices for golf course putting greens. The Demonstration Putting Green allows students to learn current best management practices and how to operate associated putting green maintenance equipment. The Demonstration Putting Green also allows students to conduct experiential learning projects alongside UTM faculty.
