The Rounds 4 Research program was designed to address a critical shortage in turfgrass research funding by auctioning donated rounds of golf online.
The program is administered by the Environmental Institute for Golf, the philanthropic organization of the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America.
Rounds 4 Research allows GCSAA chapters and turfgrass foundations to participate as fundraising partners with the vast majority of proceeds going back to those organizations. In this way, these organizations can direct the proceeds to specific projects that will have the most significant impact in their local areas.
The EIFG’s Rounds 4 Research is an expansion of the innovative program that was introduced by the Carolinas Golf Course Superintendents Association. After the Carolinas GCSA realized the program’s scope had grown beyond what it could administer, it offered the program to GCSAA. As GCSAA’s philanthropic organization, the EIFG was the natural choice to oversee this exciting fundraising effort.
