Rounds4Research Needs You to Donate a Foursome for Turf Research

Rounds4Research Gears Up for 2013 Auction
Please Donate a Foursome!
 
Welcome to Rounds 4 Research, an innovative program aimed at generating resources to fund research and help ensure golf’s future. The premise is simple: Golf facilities can support the effort by donating rounds of golf for two or four or “stay and play” packages and other items that will be auctioned off online to generate funds for turfgrass research. Rounds 4 Research is administered by the Environmental Institute for Golf and presented in partnership with the Toro Co. The EIFG is the philanthropic organization of the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America.
 
The VGCSA is featuring a research auction for the eighth consecutive year, with proceeds going to the BMP Fund, currently in the Water Quality Monitoring phase. All VGCSA rounds are slated to be auctioned in tandem with this year’s US Open and Father’s Day, running June 6-16, 2013. Accordingly we are now soliciting donated rounds. We already have a good start of rounds donated in advance last year as follows:
 
Broad Bay Country Club
Elizabeth Manor Golf and Country Club
Foundry Golf Club
General's Ridge Golf Course
Goodyear Golf Club
Hanover Country Club
Ingleside Resort
Keswick Club
Lake Monticello Golf Club
Loudoun Golf & Country Club
Salisbury Country Club
Spring Creek Golf Club
Westham Golf Club
Wintergreen Resort
 
We are asking all Virginia clubs to please donate one or two complimentary foursomes of golf (including cart) to be auctioned to benefit our research fund. In order to allow time to prepare for the auction, please donate by April 30, 2013.
 
Click here for a donor form, or you may donate online at www.rounds4research.comPlease make sure you designate that proceeds benefit the Virginia GCSA.
 
VGCSA members can help promote the auction by advertising the auction at their club in an electronic newsletter or special email – the VGCSA office will reach out for your help in advance of the auction.
