Questions and Answers

What type of grass do many Australian golf courses have?

I was reading these golf books for how to improve your game and there is a section in the book talking about the differences between Bent and Bermuda grass, particularly the Bermuda grass at Bay Hill in Florida.

It says in the book that Bermuda grows best in hot climates and that and also there is minimal grass between the ball and the club because it gross sideways.

I have played on one course where I live (Queensland, Australia) where it may have been Bermuda grass but what im wondering is what is the common grass types for golf courses around Australia and for that matter, if you live anywhere else in the world, what country generally uses if you know, even if its just a guess.

Im bored, have nothing else to do and wondering what grass is typicly used.
