Fescue

 

Fescue is a type of grass that’s most commonly found on links courses or links-style golf courses and is usually the second cut of rough or beyond. It’s a sturdy grass that tends to turn a golden color and can grow a few feet high. Escaping from it is basically a total crapshoot. It also can be cut short and used for fairways and greens. A great (or not -so-great depending on who you ask) example of this was used during the 2015 U.S. Open at Chambers Bay.
