Our Cause The EIFG is focused on providing golf courses with resources that enhance their social, economic and environmental value to communities. Golf courses are professionally managed landscapes, and with your support, the EIFG seeks to ensure the long-term viability of those landscapes. It is important that we preserve the game, a profession, and a way of life. The EIFG uses scientific research and education as the foundation to support golf course superintendents in their efforts to take a sustainable approach to golf course management. By funding applied research and education, the EIFG puts the industry in a strong position to advocate and communicate on its behalf. The data, best management practices and new innovations that come from EIFG-supported programs are vital in positioning golf as a key contributor to communities.
