PACE Turf - Turfgrass Information Center

Who We Are

PACE Turf was founded in 1988 by Larry Stowell, Ph.D. and Wendy Gelernter, Ph.D. to provide expert, objective, science-based advice and information to the turf management community. Using research results, on-the-ground experience, and their over 70 years of combined knowledge in agronomy, plant pathology, entomology, weed science and turf science, PACE Turf has long been a leader in translating science into practical turf management information, and in helping turf managers prevent problems before they occur.

In 2022, Micah Woods, Ph.D acquired the PACE Turf information service after collaborating with Drs. Stowell and Gelernter for many years.

PACE Turf offers a membership information service that delivers science-based solutions to turf management problems with breaking research news, information and expert advice on products, practices, pests and weather threats. With information customized specifically for each member's location, PACE Turf delivers its clear, bottom-line conclusions via email alerts and an information-filled website that is uncluttered by advertising.

Free public services offered on the commercial-free PACE Turf website include access to turf management guidelines on pests, soils, water and plant analysis. In addition, PACE Turf’s Super Journal is an online turf research publication containing turf research reports written by golf course superintendents and turf researchers, on topics ranging from turf IPM or integrated pest management, to soil, water and irrigation management, to new advances in turf monitoring practices and procedures.
