Because of its salt tolerance, Seaside II creeping bentgrass is chosen for coastal golf courses where sea spray is a problem for other varieties of bentgrass. It can be irrigated with water sources containing salt content as high as 15,000 ppm and having a pH of 7.5–8.5. Seaside II is also dollar spot-resistant. Its drought tolerance and aggressive growth characteristics allow Seaside II to compete well with invading species like Poa annua.
