The Environmental Institute For Golf, the philanthropic organization of the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America has announced that their Rounds for Research program has raised $115,000 for
turfgrass studies.

The first phase of the 2014 Rounds 4 Research fundraising program for turfgrass studies, run by the EIFG, sold more than 600 rounds and yielded $115,500 in the June online auction. The total was a 7 percent increase over a year ago.

"We are pleased with the success of our Rounds 4 Research program and the good that we know it can do for turfgrass research," said Rhett Evans, GCSAA chief executive officer. "This is a terrific program that gives golfers everywhere a chance to play their favorite courses and benefit the long-term health of the game."

The second auction for Rounds 4 Research will run from Aug. 1-10, to coincide with the PGA Championship at Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Ky. Online bidding will be offered at rounds4research.com.

The national campaign is supported by a $50,000 donation from The Toro Co. The program has raised more than $290,000 since being launched in 2012.
