okay, here's the question. Have you used or know anyone who has installed any sod of this type? My best friend is the superintendent of Bears Best (Jack Nicklaus newest course) in Las Vegas. He’s telling me this is the newest thing going. I am building a new home next spring and was thinking of using this new turf. Most of the new golf courses are using it. Please take a moment to look the link below and give me your thoughts. We all could learn something here….

Seashore paspalum's claim to faim is acceptable turf conditions with poorer quality irrigation water. It has been found to survive in high salt, high humidty, actually have ocean waves break upon a fairway, recede and the turf isn't damaged.
I used it a bit under trial conditions in the Philippine's.
What I didn't like was the appearance of the leaf tissue - too coarse.
However, in the growing condition's I had, it was the best all around choice.

I live in Just south of Memphis the humidity is high enough to give it a try. However, you say it is a course/rough feeling turf? I was going to use it for my lawn after building my new home. I wonder what 3/4 acre of this stuff will cost me?
