The Finest Bentgrasses in the World
Tee-2-Green is the exclusive marketer of the finest bentgrasses available for golf course greens, fairways and tees.
The Penncross Bentgrass Growers Association owns Tee-2-Green and the growers take pride in the legendary bentgrass seed varieties they provide to golf courses. “Tee-2-Green is a unique company in the seed industry because it is owned by the farmers who grow the bentgrass,” says Terry Plagmann, president of Tee-2-Green. “It’s very satisfying knowing a lot of people are benefiting from the turf for which we provide the seed.”
From charcoal growing to hand weeding, the growers and their families strive to meet and exceed the rigorous Oregon State testing standards. That’s why the Tee-2-Green bents are known and trusted by superintendents who demand the highest quality of seed.
Penncross: The first of its kind
Professors Burton Musser and Joe Duich of Penn State University developed the first Penn bent, Penncross. When introduced, Penncross provided golf with a giant leap in bentgrass quality, and today it remains one of the most popular bentgrasses in the world.
But that was just the start. Newer, ground-breaking bentgrasses like the Penn A’s and G’s, Seaside II, Penneagle II and PennLinks II continue setting even higher standards for playability and easy management that others still try to match. And today, there is a brilliant new generation of super-star bentgrasses, Crystal BlueLinks, Pure Distinction and Pure Select that are leading golf toward the ultimate bentgrasses of the future.
