Through an online platform, rounds of golf (a foursome) are auctioned to the public, providing access to golf courses many likely never have had the opportunity to enjoy. The program is being operated by the Environmental Institute for Golf, the philanthropic organization of the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America. Our Chapter has raised almost $1,000 this year from this program that will go to turfgrass research.
The program is a win-win for the golf industry and for golf enthusiasts. Specifically, through funds generated by Rounds 4 Research, the game of golf is protected by developing new grass types, enhancing environmental stewardship, advocating for positive public policy towards golf and educating future golf course managers.
