The Del Mar turf course will have a new type of Bermuda grass created by champion golfer Greg Norman when it opens for its 43-day meet July 20.
Del Mar has installed just under six acres of new Bermuda grass on its Jimmy Durante Turf Course, allowing for nearly a year of growth before the Southern California racetrack returns to action next July.
