Rounds 4 Research

Rounds 4 Research, administered by the EIFG and presented in partnership with the Toro Co., is a national campaign aimed at generating resources to address a critical shortage in turfgrass research funding by auctioning donated rounds of golf online and enabling organizations to raise revenue for research programs in their areas.

The concept behind the program is simple: Golf facilities can support turfgrass research by donating rounds of golf for two or four or “stay and play” packages that will be auctioned off online. The EIFG provides the opportunity for chapters and other organizations to solicit rounds and then distributes money back to the participating organizations.

For more information about Rounds 4 Research, how organizations or facilities can be part of the program, or how you can purchase donate rounds, visit

All Rounds 4 Research auctions take place online at www.biddingforgood.com.

The Toro Foundation continued its support of Rounds 4 Research with a $50,000 donation for 2014. From left: The Toro Foundation President Judson McNeil; 2013 GCSAA President Patrick R. Finlen, CGCS; GCSAA CEO Rhett Evans and The Toro Co. CEO Michael Hoffman.
