TifEagle is a third generation Bermuda, developed by Dr. Wayne Hanna at the Coastal Plains Experiment Station in Tifton, Georgia. It can be mowed lower than Tifdwarf or Tifgreen for improved putting speeds and consistency. It produces less thatch than other ultradwarfs. It has proven itself to be a superior Bermuda putting surface.
TifEagle has a number of unique advantages over traditional bermudagrass greens and many of the new ultradwarfs. When maintained at a cutting height of 0.125 inch (3.2mm),TifEagle produces a quality putting surface second to none. It exhibits very aggressive rhizomatous and stoloniferous growth habits, maintains superior color under cool conditions and provides an excellent putting surface during the winter season, with or without overseeding. In fact, many superintendents are reporting excellent results with painted TifEagle greens.
