Our Greens are constructed to USGA specifications and planted with L-93.
Currently, we are in the process of applying Poacure to eliminate Annual Bluegrass from our putting surfaces. Over the past few years, our greens have been aggressively over-seeded with new varieties of bentgrass further improve playability. The Tee Boxes and Fairways are a mix of creeping bentgrass, colonial bentgrass, and chewings fescue.

Constant improvement is a cornerstone of our culture at Cape Cod National.
