Belhaven Bowl Stadium Chooses Sporturf™

The Belhaven Bowl Stadium, a $4 million project at the center of campus, opened with a football game against East Texas Baptist in October.

The highly ranked Belhaven University stands among select Christian colleges and universities with national influence, and has been repeatedly named one of “America’s 100 Best College Buys.” Belhaven University offers 70 areas of study including academic majors and concentrations across a full range of disciplines, as well as a variety of Master Degree programs.

The University was founded in 1883, today; the University has achieved the distinction of being among only 36 universities nationally accredited in each of the major arts.

The installer was Sporturf™ dealer Jim Bateman of Xfit Brands. Bateman, who is on the Board of Trustees for Belhaven stated, “I couldn’t afford to put anything but the best, since it was in my backyard. I have complete trust in Sporturf™.”

Bateman’s team installed TrueGrass on the field and outfitted the hill next to the field for students to congregate on with FreshGrass. They chose FreshGrass for its strength and plush nature, anything less would have allowed infill to pool at the bottom of the hill due to the steep slope.  belhaven-install
