Louisiana/Mississippi Chapter Supports Rounds 4 Research -- Get Your Club Behind It!
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 donate to 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.
Jacobsen is pleased to announce the 3rd annual Jacobsen Turfgrass Scholarship program for rising college seniors pursuing 2 or 4 yr. degrees in Turf Management or other related disciplines such as Horticulture or Greenspace Management.
