Whether you are a golfer or you work at a golf facility, Rounds 4 Research is a cause you can get behind.

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.

ALABAMA CHAPTER BEST MANAGEMENT PRACTICES - WATER USAGE

HELP US MEET OUR GOAL OF 75% COMPLETION BY JANUARY, 2014

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 is implementing 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.
