In recent years, golf has been increasing in popularity around the world. In many regions, golf and its related industries are a major component in the local economy. For example, in 2000 golf course revenues were $4.44 billion in the state of Florida, USA (Haydu and Hodges, 2002). Two of the key features of a successful golf course are beautiful turfgrass and a smooth, "fast" playing surface. This is especially true on putting greens, where the turf is intensively managed and is typically mowed to be between 3 and 4 mm high. Even using modern, highly adapted turfgrass cultivars it is extremely difficult to maintain a healthy root system under these conditions. Therefore, plant-parasitic nematodes that feed on and damage turfgrass roots are of great concern to golf course superintendents and others who manage golf course turf.
