"Bermudagrass" is commonly considered a weed, even though it is common on golf course fairways, rough, and greens. It is generally mispelled as "Bermuda Grass" even though it has nothing to do with the island of Bermuda and it is called "bermudagrass" which is one word referring to the weed(plant).

Is this a case of "spell check takeover?"

Spell check ignorance, maybe. Both spellings are correct. It's like "grey" and "gray". There's no real reason to insist on one over the other.

The problem can be resolved by adding the word to your dictionary.

Spell Check "take over" is Microsoft replacing all my "S's" with darn "Z's"..

When will you Americans learn how to spell?!?

It did not arrive in North America from the island of Bermuda. It is believed to have come from Africa.

Forget Bermuda. That's irrelevant. Both spellings are considered correct.
