Grass for Tees and Fairways

Perennial Ryegrass and Kentucky Bluegrass are great choices for fairways and tees. They both mix well with Poa Annua and help keep your golf course looking consistently lush. We grow these grasses in sandy soil and under controlled conditions to ensure you get the best looking, high quality product. The type of sod you buy and install on your golf course will depend on your location in BC and Alberta.

Perennial Ryegrass

The best turf grass for golf courses on Vancouver Island and the Vancouver Lower Mainland is the Perennial Ryegrass. It thrives well in our temperate rainforest climate and is versatile, robust and lush-looking sod!

Kentucky Bluegrass

Kentucky Bluegrass is ideal for golf courses in the BC Interior and Alberta, where the climate is more extreme. The drier soils in these regions require a hardier grass, like the Kentucky Blue-grass, to better resist drought and disease.

Custom Grown Golf Grass

Whether for fairways, tee boxes or putting greens, Western Turf Farms can grow custom sod that meets your custom preferences and specifications for your golf course. You can choose the grass type and blend, growing medium, root zone fibre reinforcement, thickness, as well as the final cutting height at delivery time. We can create a custom turf blend from any of the seeds that we use, or we can use the seed and growing products that you provide to us. To grow quality custom sod, please plan ahead for 8 to 12 months depending on the type of grass.

Thick Cut Sod for Fast in Season Golf Course Repairs

Thick cut sod can be a blessing when you need to make quick in season field repairs to natural sports turf. We can provide sod that is cut to your specification, up to 3/4-1 inch thick. We also offer Sod with a fibre reinforced root system as thick cut, which provides even more wear resistance.
