Louisiana/Mississippi Chapter Supports Rounds 4 Research -- Get Your Club Behind It!
Register now for June R4R auction
The next Rounds 4 Research auction is August 1-10. Preview offerings for the auction and register on biddingforgood.com so you will be ready to go when bidding begins August 1.
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.
