Southeast Asia’s Sustainable Turf Solution
Atlas Turf International is golf’s premier source for seashore paspalum. As the exclusive Southeast Asia supplier of the world’s leading vegetative and seeded paspalum varieties, let Atlas Turf be your guide to the sustainable turf solution.
Golf course projects in Southeast Asia of every scope and size select Atlas Turf paspalums for three primary reasons: sustainability, performance, and aesthetics.
Paspalum is the most salt-tolerant species of turfgrass available and requires fewer inputs than other species.
Paspalum is faster to establish and recover from injury and wear than either zoysia or bermudagrass and also performs better in low light conditions. With a fine leaf blade and the ability to be mowed at varying heights of cut, both Platinum TE Paspalum and Pure Dynasty Seeded Paspalum can be planted from tee-to-green.
Pure Dynasty and Platinum TE possess a vibrant dark green color and superior density. Due to the wax load on its shoots, paspalum achieves striping with one pass of the mower for eye-catching fairways and fields.
Atlas Turf is the trusted source in Southeast Asia and worldwide for championship turfgrass.

Selecting the right turfgrass for golf course projects is definitely not a “one size fits all” process. Atlas Turf has the most extensive selection of licensed and certified turfgrasses to choose the right variety for the job. Platinum TE Paspalum and Pure Dynasty Seeded Paspalum are the leading paspalums available featuring characteristics including:
- Unbeatable salt tolerance
- Exceptional shade and low light tolerance
- Ability to be mowed at different heights of cut
- Championship quality performance from the tee to the green – wall-to-wall
If turf conversion without extended interruption of play is your goal, interseeding with seeded paspalum is the solution. Gradual transition to a higher quality turfgrass is possible without costly renovation. Pure Dynasty Seeded Paspalum allows golf courses to efficiently and cost-effectively address issues such as:
- Aging turfgrass
- Water quality issues
- Disease stress
- Thatch build-up
- Contamination of other grass species
- Excessive wear
Common Questions About Paspalum:
Can paspalum putting greens achieve the same Stimpmeter readings (speed) as ultradwarf bermudagrass?
Yes. With the correct management practices, paspalum putting greens speeds can equal the same speeds as those of any other turfgrass, including ultradwarf bermudagrass.
Can paspalum be irrigated with salt water directly from the ocean?
No. Even though paspalum is salt tolerant, it cannot be irrigated with ocean water. The maximum recommended salt content for regular irrigation water is 5,500 ppm.
Does paspalum require lots of fertilizer?
No. In fact, after establishment, paspalum requires less nitrogen than zoysia and bermudagrass varieties. Depending on the location, as little as two pounds of nitrogen per one thousand square feet (one kilogram per 100 square meters) is needed to maintain a stand of paspalum successfully.
