Sunday Ultra-Dwarf Bermudagrass is a unique greens grass selected from Cotton Creek Golf Club in South Alabama in 2007. Selected for its dense growth canopy, lighter color, and reduced seed heads. Sunday originated from an undefined Bermuda green at Cotton Creek Golf Club, known in the region as "Cotton Creek Dwarf." Genetic stability is a key feature for a successful putting green, and Sunday has proven to be stable for more than 25 years. The variety, referred to as C-1 after its initial selection, has been protected and isolated from commercial use until genetic stability could be established. Contributors to the selection include R.C. Craft, Robert Craft, John Chapman, and Burr Johnson. John Chapman is the primary developer of the grass and has been working in the golf and turf industry for over 30 years.
In the mid 1980's Cotton Creek Golf Club was looking for an improved greens grass and John Chapman began pulling samples from "Cotton Creek Dwarf" greens that had a different appearance or desirable characteristic. He began propagating and maintaining these samples and found one of them to outperform anything then available on the market. In April of 1987 the Cotton Creek Golf Club was sprigged with this experimental grass, thereafter referred to as C-1, and 25 years later these first greens are still performing well and have remained stable. Sunday is a 2007 selection from these original C-1 greens, which have seen temperatures as low as 5 degrees and survived multiple days of below freezing temperatures. One of the key features of Sunday is its ability to be maintained it like a dwarf while delivering Ultra-Dwarf performance. Sunday can be mowed as low as .08" for tournament play with stimpmeter readings as high as 11. Sunday has a proven track record of success and is an excellent choice for warm season golf greens.
