Zeon Zoysia is the grass of the 2016 Olympics in Rio! Golf has returned as an Olympic sport to the 2016 Games, the grass the golfers are playing on is Zeon Zoysia. The grass was selected for use on the tees, roughs and fairways of the course being built specifically for the Olympics. Zeon’s beauty and playability contributed to the choice. More important, Zeon’s low water use and low fertilizer requirements were critical for the Olympic Committee’s desire to build a sustainable golf course.  


Zeon is a fine-bladed Zoysiagrass. It has a beautiful dark green color and soft leaf texture making it a true “barefoot lawn grass.” Zeon Zoysia’s extensive root system allows it to quickly recover from drought, it can handle full sun, and has excellent shade tolerance only requiring as little as 3 hours of direct sunlight.  

Cavalier Zoysia 

Fine Blade

Cavalier looks somewhat like Tifway Bermuda grass, but withstands cold better than Tifway. In addition to its cold hardiness, Cavalier demonstrates good shade and salt tolerance. (This salt tolerance allows for application in areas with less than optimal water quality.) Cavalier Zoysia also resists many insects and diseases, including fall armyworm and Rhyzoctonia blight. It has also shown significant resistance to the tropical sod webworm and the tawny mole cricket. Ranked as one of the top zoysia in the NTEP (National Turfgrass Evaluation Program), Cavalier Zoysia is an excellent choice for home lawns, golf course fairways and tee boxes, parks and sports fields.  

Cavalier is a fine textured Zoysia grass also developed at Texas A&M University. It works excellently on home lawns, golf course fairways, tee boxes, and highly visible areas. Not as shade tolerant as St. Augustine but is superior to most bermudas.
