Your participation in R4R will help our researchers continue to bring you great greens!


Rounds4Research is 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 parternship with the Toro Co. The EIFG is the philanthropic organization of the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to bid on rounds at amazing courses throughout the Carolinas. 80% of all proceeds from rounds sold at courses in the Carolinas go to turfgrass research at Clemson University and North Carolina State University.
