1. A fine-leaved turfgrass that grows well in shade, low soil moisture, low fertility and low pH. It requires well-drained, slightly dry soils. Red, hard and chewing fescues are included in this group.
Fine fescue is used on links golf courses in Ireland, United Kingdom, and Northern Europe on tees, fairways, roughs, and in some cases found on greens. This picture is taken from a links course around Dublin, Ireland.
