These are some pictures of Winter kill on the Heritage Course.  The dead turf is Poa annua the live green turf is Creeping Bentgrass.  These are fine examples of why I favor the growth of bentgrass over Poa.  We have been overseeding bentgrass on the Heritage in select areas for 6 years now.  We will never gain a 100% bentgrass surface but a nice mix is wonderful.  10 years ago this area would have been completely wiped out but now there is hope and life because the bentgrass exists on the surface in larger percentages.
