I had the pleasure just the other day to speak with Mr. John Reitman of TurfNet.com about the process and advantages of painting greens instead of overseeding them. Below is a link to his article on TurfNet.com.
Using turfgrass colorants instead of overseeding greens is a great way to eliminate the costs associated with seed, fertilizer, fungicides, and daily mowing. It is what I call "instant green".
I am really lucky to have some great employees on my staff who take a high level of pride in the golf course. I have to give credit to Willie Hamby who is in charge of painting the greens and does a great job at it.
