Four golf courses grassed with Zeon Zoysia earn place on Golfweek list

When Golfweek magazine announced its list of the Top 100 Residential Golf Courses for 2014 earlier this month, David Doguet, world-renown turfgrass breeder and founder of Bladerunner Farms, noticed something special.

"I've only grassed four residential golf courses in the entire state of Texas with Zeon Zoysiagrass and every single one of them made this list," Doguet said. "That really makes a statement about the quality of the playing surfaces of golf courses grassed with Zeon."

The residential rankings originate from Golfweek's annual compilation of America's Best Courses, published since 1997. More than 350 raters throughout the country evaluate courses on the basis of 10 criteria, providing a final score calculated through a statistically rigorous process. The news was released in the publication's annual Ultimate Guide.

The Zeon Zoysiagrass courses that made the list are:
