Next week is the KBC Augusta (KBCオーガスタ) tournament at Keya Golf Club in Japan.
This is a rare event -- a professional golf tournament played on korai (Zoysia matrella) greens.
For more about this grass and these type of greens, see:
- Zoysia on putting greens, why?
- Of trees, turf, and tropical tournament golf
- How does a ball roll on zoysia?
I may share a few photos and observations from the tournament. If I do, I'll use the #KBCオーガスタ hashtag. You can also find out more about this grass and its maintenance at the Keya Golf Club Turfgrass Maintenance page or by following Keya GC superintendent Andrew McDaniel.
