PennLinks Bentgrass Seed - PennLinks creeping bentgrass is a seed propagated variety released by the Agricultural Experiment station of Pennsylvania State University. Novel features of PennLinks include an upright growth habit (non-graining), finer foliar texture and minimal amount of plant type segregation when managed as a putting green. Disease tolerances are considered to be within the range of this species, and when compared to Penncross, PennLinks has a more upright growth habit, is finer bladed and produces a higher turf density.


  • Excellent drought tolerance and drought recovery
  • Increased turf density
  • Very good Leaf Spot and Dollar Spot resistance
  • Fine textured leaf, medium dark green color
  • Performs well on sand or soil greens
  • Good winter color retention

Recommended Use: Golf Courses (fairways, tees and greens) and Winter Overseeding of Bermudagrass Greens

Climatic Zones: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10
(may not be adaptable to all areas within each zone)

Establishment & Maintenance: Plant the seed to make good seed to soil contact and keep seedlings moist until well-rooted. Germination will take place in 10 - 21 days, depending on soil temperatures, and the first mowing may be expected within 30 days, or when the plants have sufficiently rooted. Mow at a 3/4 inch (19 mm) height of cut or lower until turf is established. Limited use of the area can be expected in 6 weeks. PennLinks performs best in soils with a pH of 5.5 to 8. It has a moderate nitrogen requirement, with 1 - 2 pounds of actual N per 1,000 square feet per year, adequate in most situations. PennLinks’ optimum mowing height is 3/16 - 5/16 inch (4.8 - 7.9 mm) but can be adjusted higher or lower, depending upon maintenance practices and intended use. PennLinks performs best on a sandy soil and tolerates clay soils with adequate drainage. Bentgrasses do not perform well in wet areas; however, PennLinks has shown tolerance to saturated soil conditions for short periods of time.
