The definition of a weed is a plant out of place. We have several different types of plants growing in our maintained bermudagrass golf course. Some of these include sedge, goosegrass, green kyllinga, doveweed, spurge, and crabgrass among others.

We have initiated a pre and post emergence rotation schedule to aid in the control of weeds. Every spring and fall we apply Ronstar and Barricade to prevent the germination of weeds. Once weeds are past the two leaf stage, we actively spot spray. The two main weeds we are trying to control are sedge and goosegrass. We will spray Revolver herbicide on the goosegrass and either Sedgehammer or Monument on sedge.
