YOU MAY STILL DONATE FOR THE AUGUST 1-10 AUCTION. Click on the link below and fill out the form on-line. Your club will not need to furnish paper certificates.

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.

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.

To learn more about Rounds 4 Research, visit rounds4research.com. Facilities can donate rounds of golf and golfers can learn more about the 2014 auctions to be conducted June 9 - 22 and August 1-10.

Thanks to all those clubs who have donated rounds to the Alabama Chapter. CLICK HERE for list of donors!


Fall Fertilization: Prepare for Healthier Turf Next Spring

Presented by by Koch Agronomic Services, LLC
Join us for a Webinar on August 21

Space is limited.Reserve your Webinar seat now at: https://www4.gotomeeting.com/register/480273919

The spring of 2014 was a tough one for many courses, especially in the Northern U.S. After a difficult winter, superintendents dug their way out of the snow to discover that many greens and tees did not survive the harsh conditions. Fall fertilization is an integral part of healthy spring turfgrass growth and can play an important role in recovering from winter conditions. This is equally true in both cool- and warm-season grasses; the challenges and resulting programs will vary depending on climate. In this webinar, John Kruse, Ph.D., reviews critical planning and implementation of a fall fertilization program that will enable the plant to store energy in the roots and prepare for stronger growth and regeneration the following spring. This knowledge is valuable to superintendents working in any climate.

Date: Thursday, August 21, 2014

Time: 10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.

After registering you will receive a confirmation e-mail containing information about joinin the webinair.

ALABAMA CHAPTER BEST MANAGEMENT PRACTICES - WATER USAGE

HELP US MEET OUR GOAL OF COMPLETION 

In the turf industry, we rely on Best Management Practices in our water management, pest management, and fertility programs.  These programs are beneficial in many different ways, often saving our respective courses money, as well as protecting the environment surrounding our course. The Alabama Chapter implemented a BMP in water conservation efforts in 2013.  With water being the most precious resource to our survival both physically and professionally, it is all the more critical that we care for this resource.
