What golfers, superintendents and golf instructors are saying about using Endurant grass paint for painting dormant greens
Golfer and club member, Sam:
“The green paint contrasting with the dormant Bermuda grass is amazing. It looks like real live grass. It’s like summertime out here. It’s like playing in Scotland without paying $5,000 to get to Scotland.”
“From a golfer’s perspective, to have contrast, to have a focal point for your drive, it’s really helpful because otherwise, without that, you might go left or right or whatever. But the fact that you can line up from the tee to the fairway given the contrast between the brown dormant Bermuda grass and the green Endurant, just makes for a great visualization and experience.”
Golf Course Superintendent, Nathan:
“The first thing I see when I step out on the property now are these green fairways instead of the brown Bermuda grass. The color is very natural. That is one of the areas of skepticism I had, is how is it going to look? Right off the bat, I could tell this was the result we were looking for.”
“When golfers pull up and step out of their cars they are amazed at the sight of the fairways being green. They stepped out of their cars and were just in awe at the transformation of this place.”
Golf professional and instructor, Jeff:
“Compared with overseeding for so many years, for 23 years, painting turf relieves the challenges seen when overseeding and transitioning from the spring to the summer. The transition time with overseed takes time and getting the mowers out there and using them during the winter, our labor costs were relatively high with overseed.”
“We decided not to go with overseeding at all and it was kind of plain looking out there with the dormant grass. With this Endurant product, you’re able to see the landing areas where you want to go.”
“It actually looks like overseed– a little better than overseed because it’s not spotty in places as you often see with overseed.”
“The course is playing a little faster. You’re not seeing the ball stick as much as in an overseeded fairway. You’re seeing more roll out. You’re seeing bigger drives. People are enjoying the game a little better. They have targets, specific targets they can hit to. They’re not questioning whether they’re in the rough or in the fairway. They know they’re in the rough. They know they’re in the fairway because the Endurant turf paint defines it.”
“I think this is going to be a bigger trend. I think you’re going to see the cost of overseeding and the maintenance is going to be eliminated by using this Endurant product.”

Painting vs overseeding has become the best choice agronomically, economically and environmentally for turf professionals. There are two main decisions to make when painting dormant Bermuda grass greens:
- Choosing the best paint
- Selecting the most suitable pumps and sprayers
Choosing the best paint: Endurant liquid overseed
Turf professionals share why Endurant is the best choice. Endurant is the favorite among turf care professionals and golf course superintendents because of Endurant’s natural color, lasting richness, contribution to earlier spring time green up by increasing temperature, ease of use, lack of clogging in pumps and sprayers, ease in blending, earth-friendly aspects, economics, agronomic benefits and aesthetic appeal.
What Golf course superintendents say about using Endurant turf paint on dormant Bermuda grass:
- “The color is blending well and still looks rich after two months. The Endurant paint looks like a really nice, rich, overseeded green even two months after it’s been painted. The Endurant holds up even as the grass is completely dormant. The color, the darkness and retention is all the paint because of the extreme cold weather we’ve had.”
- “We really like Endurant because it retains color and helps the grass green up faster in the spring. We choose agronomy over aesthetics. With Endurant we get both as it looks natural.”
- “I really like the Endurant paint. It mixes well, doesn’t clog up and is really nice on our pumps, which we can’t say about a lot of the other paints we’ve tried.”
