V8 Creeping Bentgrass



 V8 Creeping Bentgrass

     V8 is a brand new state-of-the-art creeping bentgrass cuitvar developed for the elite premium golf course. V8 is currently undergoing beta-testing at a number of golf courses worldwide, while at the same time it is receiving a multi-state analysis in the NTEP putting green trial.

      V8 is a hybrid between two preexisting bent varieties, selected specifically for:

  • Close-cut tolerance for lightning fast greens
  • Dollar spot disease resistance, greatly reducing the quantity of fungicide required.



  • V8 has one of the finest leaf textures of any creeping bentgrass.
  • It is the #1 most dense bentgrass avaliable today according to NTEP.
  • Greens up in the spring earlier than Penncross for additional weeks of golf play.
  • A medium dark green color - darker then Penncross and lighter than Alpha.
  • Color persists well into the autumn with better than average frost tolerance.
  • Adapts well to a wide range of putting green mowing heights, as low as.080"
  • Smooth recovery from aerification.
  • The #1 highest quality bentgrass variety at Purdue University in West Lafayette, IN, by a considerable margin, topping Penn A-1, Decleration, and many others. 

     V8 is best suited to greens and is adaptable to tees, aproaches, and fairways. It thrives across the cool, temperature regions of the world and its adapted well into the transition zone between warm- and cool- season areas.
