    Is there such a thing of brown patch in bermuda grass? Could this large patch be from lack of water (dead). Brown patch is from excess water right? Grubs or other parasite maybe? Your suggestions please.

    I've experienced it going semi dormant / brown from not getting enough water.

    After irrig issues solved, it greened back up in a week - 10 days

    You need to have a sample tested. Could be a number of problems. Most likely a fungus the way you describe it. Take your sample from the edge of the brown patch where you get a combination of live turf and dead turf
